what did tom cruise do for mission impossible?
You’re just not ready. Tom made $70 million for the first Mission: Impossible movie and $75 million for Mission: Impossible 3, mostly thanks to producer credits. But his most profitable movie is sandwiched between them: Mission: Impossible 2. Tom apparently made $100 million for this movie thanks to back-end deals, and he made the same for 2005’s War of the Worlds.

what did tom cruise do for top gun: maverick?
You’re just not ready. Variety initially reported that Tom made $13 million upfront for the film, but noted that he expected to make millions more on the back end. which, lol, he certainly did. So far, Tom has reportedly made $100 million from a combination of his starting salary and ticket sales, and that’s expected to rise once rentals and streaming revenue come into play.
FYI, he’s negotiated this same deal for the upcoming Mission: Impossible movies: $12 to $14 million up front, with a lot more expected on the back end.

It would be about 745 million dollars. Furthermore, according to Cinemablend, he earns $7,091 per word of dialogue. no wonder forbes has listed him as one of the richest actors in the world 😵💫.
