James Cameron Earned $350 Million for "Avatar," So Far

Posted: July 9th, 2010 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
James Cameron Earned $350 Million for "Avatar," So FarSubmit Comment
It's no secret that James Cameron had an amazing deal with 20th Century Fox to write, direct and produce "Avatar," which went on to gross $2.7 billion in worldwide ticket sales and smashed most records on DVD and Blu-ray. But how much did he end up getting paid?

According to Deadline, Cameron earned a whopping $350 million, which is the biggest paycheck for one person for any movie. And the money isn't about to stop coming. "Avatar" will be re-released in 3D theaters on August 27th and then there will be a 3D version of the movie released on DVD and Blu-ray.

And after that, there will likely be two more installments, which will cost far less than the original since most of the technology has already been worked out.

The $350 million paycheck makes Cameron the highest-paid celebrity (ahead of Oprah) and trumps the $97 million he received for "Titanic," which also will be re-released in 3D theaters in April of 2012.

Stolen? STOLEN? You call 4 years of working on a single film, ignoring the criticism being thrown at you, getting over the disappointment of the inevitable under achievements, and many other stuff which Cameron himself said tempted him to hold a gun to his head several different times, when you cooed go the Michael Bay route and do it the easy way without bothering to revolutionize anything and just attempting to make a quick buck, STOLEN?

Saying retarded ass sh*t like that is the reason you will never become as rich and successful as he is, pseudo-intellectual dumb f*cks like you will just make small ass independent films because that's the "cool" and "anti-establishment" thing to do. Jesus f*cking Christ you people are stupid.

So let's hope he puts his money where his mouth is and gives a big f*cking chunk of it away to help all these enviromental causes he loves so much...the f*cking douche...a smart motherf*cking douche..but a douche all the same.
triggax writes:

Spooky...

No respect for Lucas... Mostly because his name begins with a capital J...

I don't necessarily have respect for people because theyre marketing geniuses... and i dont really have a whole lot of respect for Cameron, based on his divorce turmoils and how big a piece of sh*t he actually is to most of his fans and what have you... But... I respect him a lot more than lucas... Regardless of what Cameron does with Avatar.. I've yet to have anything of his be shoved down my throat and re-released and f*cking ruined... Much like every f*cking movie george lucas has ever been attached to... If they release star wars in theater again im going gay.

Oh and... Lister...

It's one thing to get your point across.. but slandering encore to the point where you're actually calling him a dumb f*ck... for making a personal statement.. Just makes you look like a dumb f*ck... It makes you look like a pathetic little internet troll... A stupid slow paraquat of a human being.. Thats all... now.. when you grow a set of balls and a f*cking brain... maybe we'd like to hear your opinion then... thanks.

the thing with lucas is he didnt take a paycheck from star wars he asked for the marketing rights and royalties from every toy , key chain , plastic light saber .... anything to do with that universe and 20th cen fox said SURE GO AHEAD AND HAVE IT THIS PIECE OF sh*t IS GONNA BOMB ANY WHY .... hey 20th cen fox " hows his ass taste now bitches "

@Lister - I don't believe encore is interested in making any movies himself.

And to group all us 'people' together makes you a broad-stroked painter with a 2-dimensional mind.

Good luck with that.

lister-i'm guessing you suck Cameron's c*ck every morning or at least you wish to? i'm also guessing you are sitting in your chair, painted blue with a dildo up your ass?

and thank you Trig, it was simply a personal statement ...
