Best Answer

It's based, usually, on an average ticket price and a number of admissions. This isnt' necessarily the money the studio or film makers earn. A significant proportion is taxed, cinema chains will take a proportion of the leftovers. What's left will go to the film studios who produced the film with proportions going to the top for the big stars and directors. Usually most of the production staff are paid in advance and do not earn more based on the film's box office return. Big stars will take an agreed percentage of the box office, but only really big stars.
