James Cameron Reportedly Made $350+ Million For Making Avatar
It’s an understatement to say that James Cameron is a very wealthy individual. The guy once made two of the highest-grossing movies of all-time. That is not an easy feat, and it brings you a great deal of wealth in this life. Sure enough, thanks to Avatar‘s success, Cameron got a whole lot more money in his pocket. Specifically, as it was reported by Deadline, Cameron apparently made more than $350 million from making Avatar, due to his directorial deal, which was structured as either “first dollar” gross or else, “at cash break” gross.
That’s a pretty good cut of the pie. Given its $2.7 billion success, it makes sense that Cameron received a healthy compensation for this achievement. As the writer, director, and producer, it’s safe to say Avatar wouldn’t exist without Cameron’s bold vision. Therefore, given its incredible triumph, it makes a lot of sense that the award-winning filmmaker earned one sweet-ass paycheck.
