Yeah, that's a lot of green. Keep in mind the cash totals are the gross amount the flick has racked up over the year. I don't mean gross as in yuck, sick, icky - I mean gross as in the lump sum of cash, before they take out the amount it cost to make the movie. Even after the production costs are taken out - I bet a lot of your allowance money is going into some studio big wig's pocket.
Did you love a flick this year that bombed at the box office? which flick made you flip this year.
