Sandra Bullock Could Make $70 Million for Soaring in 'Gravity'

Feb 26, 2014

Sandra Bullock went to space and all she got was a $70 million payday.

Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the Oscar-nominated Gravity star may make at least $70 million for Gravity, since her deal with the studio included $20 million up front and then 15% of whatever the studio makes at the box office.

It's a more generous deal than most stars get, since it was signed in 2010 as Bullock was fresh off her Oscar win for The Blind Side, and Angelina Jolie had just dropped out of the movie.

Gravity, which is expected to make more than $750 million at the box office, is already on track to be the most profitable of this year's Oscar-nominated movies, and may even make more money than all the other Best Picture nominees combined.
