If you are a major Bollywood director, you will make some schweet cash. Steven Spielberg makes some hella green-backs. Not only does he get paid the big bucks up front, but he also sets his ass up to make some money on the back door as well.
For Jurrasic Park he got $250k up front but got gross and profit participations as well.
He paid himself $1.5 million for Raiders and took a percentage of the gross as well. I am sure Lucas made some little gold dildo idols as well, so I am sure he made some black market cash to wet his little Indy whistle.
Jurrassic II was a fucking whopper...$72,000,000. God damn ...
