Though it has been a while since Adam Sandler had an out-and-out multiplex hit, he continues to command top dollar for bloated budget movies such as 2015’s “Pixels.” Sandler, whose films have traditionally been popular with on-demand and DVD-watching couch potatoes, this year signed on to make four films exclusively for Netflix. The deal saves on costly distribution and delivers Sandler’s comedies directly to his target audiences, though Sandler has already come under fire for allegedly racist depictions on the set of mock Western “The Ridiculous 6.”

5. Tom Cruise

$40 Million

Tom Cruise has defined the role of agent Ethan Hunt in the “Mission: Impossible” movies and has been able to maneuver himself into earning a ton based on how the blockbusters perform at the box office. He earned an estimated $40 million in profit from 2012’s “Mission: Impossible Ghost Protocol”, which grossed $694.7 million at global ticketing booths. Cruise owes this year’s paycheck to his upfront fees for 2015′s “Mission: Impossible Rogue Nation” and last year’s action flick “Edge of Tomorrow.”

6. Amitabh Bachchan

$33.5 Million

Bollywood stalwart Amitabh Bachchan has starred in more than 150 movies in his 50 year career. He continues to earn top rupee for his roles in flicks such 2014’s “Bhoothnath Returns.” Though Indian movies gross far less than U.S. films at the box office, they recoup costs by selling satellite rights to TV channels. But unlike the U.S., where first dollar gross deals are a thing of the past, Bollywood stars such as Bachchan continue to earn a cut of each film’s ticketing revenue. Bachchan bolsters his earnings as the longstanding host of India’s version of “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?” (“Kaun Banega Crorepati”), which aired its eighth season in 2014.

7. Salman Khan 

$33.5 Million

Bollywood’s bad boy has long been trailed by controversy: In 2006 he was convicted of poaching an endangered gazelle on a 1998 hunting trip, while in May 2015 Khan was sentenced to five years in prison for a 2002 hit-and-run car incident which killed a homeless man. Mumbai’s High Court has suspended his sentence while he appeals his conviction.

Mark Wahlberg is banking off the back of 2015’s teddy bear comedy “Ted 2,” which grossed a reasonable $168 million. His 2012 “Ted,” which followed the trials of a crass talking teddy bear, grossed $549 million on a $50 million budget. Wahlberg returns as the main character, John, while screenwriter and executive producer Seth MacFarlane voices the coarse soft toy. Wahlberg’s paycheck is supplemented with roles in 2014’s flop “The Gambler,” which grossed just $39 million on a $24 million budget, and “Transformers: Age of Extinction,” which performed far better. His company produced the “Entourage” movie; it’s latest HBO offering is Dwayne Johnson’s football comedy “Ballers.”
