"In exchange for forgoing a cut of ticket sales, the studios grant a bigger share of the potential profits"
Joait... joat? So instead of Cruise getting just box office royalties, he forgoes 5M upfront just so he ALSO gets a cut from home video and pay per view and a whole slew of venues (I wouldn't doubt digital distribution being one of those perks). Good thing they're cutting back the new budget by only 30M. Wow. Way to add up that screwy math, Paramount.
Also, how does earning 620M for a 180M flick barely breaking even? Even after the theatrical cut (which is less than half, despite what everyone keeps blurbing about)? What kind of magic beancounting is this?
