Space is a giant vacuum, and a giant vacuum is what Sandra Bullock would need to use in order collect all the cash she's earned (if it were floating around in space)!
According to multiple sources, Sandra's deal with Warner Bros. will make your head spin as if you were tumbling in space. It's otherworldly!
Not only did she get $20 million upfront, she also got the studio to give her 15 percent of first-dollar gross, which means that once her advance is paid, she gets 15 percent of what the studio earns from the box office.
Typically a studio takes 40 to 50 percent of the box office's earnings, and with Gravity having passed the $700 million mark and being expected to make over $750 million, Sandra is expected to easily earn $50 million from that and her upfront alone.
Uh oh, looks like our O2 is down because we just gasped!
The other $20 million she'll probably make will come from DVD sales, pay and free TV, and other revenue.
Congrats, Sandra! You need a fire extinguisher! Not to help you make it to a space station, but because gurl you are on fire!
