The actor, 60, is expected to earn a whopping $100 million or more salary from Top Gun: Maverick, according to a new report from Variety.
The total would account for his upfront salary, as well as his portion of ticket sales and what he would get from future home entertainment earnings, the outlet reported.
Cruise reportedly took a smaller-than-usual payment upfront — $13 million — for the recently released sequel, according to a prior report from Variety, in order to cut his unique deal where he earns more after the movie's theatrical release.
The feat marked the first of Cruise's films to reach the rare milestone, with his next-highest global earner being 2018's Mission: Impossible – Fallout, which made $791.1 million.
"To all the films in release, to all the studios, and to all the exhibitors: congratulations. To the audience: thank you for venturing out and allowing us to entertain you. See you at the movies," Cruise wrote on Twitter in June, reacting to the box office success.
