Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt Get Big 'Passengers' Pay Days

Jennifer Lawrence and Chris Pratt are nearing a deal to star together in the upcoming sci-fi drama Passengers and their pay days are going to be huge!

The 24-year-old Oscar-winning actress will get a $20 million salary along with 30 percent of the film’s profit after the movie breaks even, according to THR.

Chris, 35, was only supposed to receive $10 million for his work, but after his film Jurassic World broke the domestic and global box office records this weekend, he was able to negotiate his fee up to $12 million.

Passengers, which has been pitched as Gravity with romance, will be directed by Oscar-nominated director Morten Tyldum (The Imitation Game).

ARE YOU EXCITED to see Jennifer Lawrence & Chris Pratt in Passengers?

    Well.. Jennifer Lawrence is defo worth 20m or over haha, shes partly the reason why The Hunger Games series is doing well tbh, shes carrying that franchises really good.. Chris Pratt is too, he done fantastic in GOTG and in Jurassic World. There very funny too! I’m very excited.

    Also whoever says Jennifer is greedy, don’t send hate to her. Send hate to Leonardo DiCaprio for getting 50m for one of his movies, or Sandra Bullock for getting 70m for one of her movies too.

  • Dee

    im excited. these would have great chemistry. and good on jen for that paper!!!

  • Dory Phore

    Can’t wait for this movie to flop so Hollywood realizes that NO ONE pays for “stars.” Jurassic World would’ve done well REGARDLESS OF WHO STARRED IN IT.

  • millerz

    I think Jennifer is talented no doubt but I don’t think the Hunger Games success is based on her alone. I think if there were another lead actress it would have been just as successful. I didn’t think Kristen Stewart was great as Bella in Twilight and it was still successful. Asking for 30% of the profit is nuts but good for her! Fight for what you want and you’ll get it .. if your Jennifer Lawrence lol I think Chris deserves more than $12 but I’m sure he’s thrilled with that.

  • millerz

    that’s true to an extent..depending on the movies. For me personally I would have loved the hunger games no matter who was in it because I loved the books, it would have still worked if she wasn’t cast. Same with Jurassic World I would have seen it regardless. On the other hand I love Emma Stone and Bradley cooper and although there were terrible reviews for Aloha i paid to see it just for actors I love. And Rachel and Bill! Even though they were hardly in it.

  • Sam

    This could be huge and I’m definitely going to see it, I like both of them and I’m looking forward to the movie just as much as I’m excited for the press tour.

  • elisa

    if this is true i think is an absurd amount of money for jennifer lawrence. The hunger games are like the twilight or 50 shades type of franchise , it doesnt matter who is the star people will go to see it because it has a huge fan base, it’s not her merit , the x men movies are a team movie, multiple characters she is not the lead actress, the only movies where she is the star (without franchise support) are david o russell films and serena none of these where huge box succes so I think its too soon to be asking that money its a risky bet.
    Anyways that’s my opinion but if the studio is willing to pay her that, then good for her

  • elisa

    I dont think she is greedy but i think its too fast to be asking this amount of money. You cant put her in the same level of 2 actors with 20 years of career and secured box office success we only know her for like 4-5 years, and it’s not hate it’s just an opinion

  • Sparkling Peach

    I’m sorry but you can’t compare Serena to her other movies, it has production errors and lots of faults during the making of the film. So lets pretend she didn’t make that :) also Silver Linings Playbook and American Hustle did make quote a-lot.

  • Sparkling Peach

    She deserves it though.

  • Sparkling Peach

    lol you’re dumb

  • Sparkling Peach

    It does have a huge fan base but me and my family and also 30-35 other friends only watch it because of her.

  • ola akande

    its true

  • Lilly

    Love Chris not jen she’s so overrated and silver linings was so not oscar worthy just according to Weinstein who has influence .

  • FrenchGirl

    Since when the people’s are exciting by the press tour ??

  • Sam

    I can only speak for myself, being a fan of both of them I have watched their interviews before both have great sense of humor and I’d imagine it would be fun to see how they play off each other

  • FrenchGirl

    Bullock won as much because She only paid with % on the profit.Here 30% of profit is insane ….
    All that because Lawrence thought she deserves better than the other actors in American Hustle. Miss “Greedy” is the new Demi ” give me Moore” Moore

  • FrenchGirl

    they are 2 overrated actors with the one talent is to be annoying …excuse me ” lovely”

  • Sam

    lol you are so bitter all over this post..just skip this movie then.

  • FerCat

    One is.

  • FerCat

    I’ve never found Jennifer Lawrence to be a convincing love interest though. Actually, neither of them have.

  • FerCat

    Her movie Serena pretty much cleared things up.

  • vn_102

    Nobody saw American Hustle for her duh.

  • Stan

    I don’t believe this. What source? Actors don’t get 30% off of a profit. Not if they’re already getting a $20 million pay cheque.
    A few weeks back it was said she was getting $20 million and Chris $10 million. They obviously renegotiated for him but earlier it was never said Jen was receiving a cut of the profits. Like I said 30% is a lot I highly doubt it would be that much. If the budget + marketing is around $200 million and then the film grosses $500 million she would get 30% off of $300 million which is $90 million. There is no way a studio would be willing to give that away.

  • vn_102

    That’s insane a lot of money for actress that’s not been proven to be box office draws yet.
    People would still saw Hunger Games with Hailee Stainfield nor Saoirse Ronan instead. And the new X Men would still be sucessfull regardless of her.
    Guess this movie will be her true test of her box office power then.

  • FrenchGirl

    Yes,I’m bitter and I know I will skip this movie whereas I am a movie nerd.She’s greedy and he doesn’t deserve this money ( JW was a sure success with or without him). It’s insane

  • Vivianne

    Bullock had $20M + profit for Gravity TROLL

  • millerz

    I’m not saying people don’t watch just because of her. In another comment I said how I went to see Aloha just because I love the cast despite the bad reviews. But someone made a good point about Serena hardly anyone saw that and it did terrible at the box office. So not everyone sees movies just because she’s in it. I love Jennifer don’t get me wrong :)

  • Davis

    Good for them but Sony are a goddamn shambles

  • fromanotherplanet

    What a mess. I hope this movie FLOPS!!!!

  • JoleneJ

    Bullshit. If you think this movie is gonna flop, you’re in for a surprise. Pratt and Lawrence have a combined star power that will absolutely prove a draw. The movie will have to be good too, of course, but people have been raving about the script.

  • JoleneJ

    I may be wrong but I think the original article in THR said she’s getting 20m “against” 30% profit. I took that to mean she’s getting either one or the other, whichever one is higher, not both.

  • Stan

    That makes more sense. I would take the 30%. A sci fi love story with two of the biggest stars in at the moment. If she’s smart she would get that.

  • Courtney

    I don’t think this is about greed. It’s about Jennifer getting paid what the studio should have paid her. Sony screwed her and Amy Adams over. Also, this is a business deal and Jennifer and her team want to ensure that this business deal will reap rewards on both sides. I don’t think there will be any trouble with getting people to see this movie. Two of Hollywood’s biggest stars have more than enough box office draw.

  • Dory Phore

    Says the illiterate troll.

  • Davis

    People don’t see their movies because of them they see them to see dinosaurs and kids fighting each other this will harm them in some way.

  • Courtney

    It’s a little bit of both those reasons that people see their films. You cannot deny they’ve got box office pull right now though.

  • Davis

    But not with a movie like a 170 million romance story is a disaster it might it’s money back but it won’t blow up. It might kill their momentum

  • Kaitlyn

    “Guess this movie will be her true test of her box office power then.”

    Um… not really. Chris Pratt is in this so between the two then I’d say Pratt is the more appealing one for most people. (But overall, I feel this may not be worth their salaries since neither has actually been a solo box office draw).

  • Kaitlyn

    Jennifer.Lawrence: A 24yr old that acts like a 39yr old
    Chris Pratt: A 39yr old that acts like a 24yr old

    Yup. Good casting Hollywood.

  • Nina

    Are Di Caprio, RDJ, Deep, Bullock greedy? Because they all had a $20M npayday. Even Sasha Baron for The Dictator. You aren’t a fan but you must to deal with it. She’s in the big league, miles miles ahed other young actresses

  • Nina

    She had success more younger that Di Caprio or Bullock so it’s logical that she has $20M at 24. She won a Oscar at 22

  • Nina

    A mess because an actress has her right pay? Go to see the beautiful article at Vulture. You’re a mess, pressed

  • damian gonzales

    these films are disgusting. It is amazing how people get used to look away.

  • vn_102

    And what happened to the other actress who also won oscar?
    Did they get overpaid now after their oscar heyday?
    Reese and Julia Roberts were once in J Law position before, but overexposed, failed personal life drama and many strings of box office flopped diminished their salaries demand.
    J Law was so overexposed now and people were getting tired with her showmance with boring old dude Chris Martin with many broads and crazy diva ex baggage, not to mention her naked pics everywhere, she needed something more to keep people interested on her once sweetheart nextdoor girl persona.

  • vn_102

    Well Chris seems to be the flavor of the moment and free of personal baggage for now.
    While Jen was so overexposed in her personal life term, that made many people so sick of her, no longer wanting to see her more on screen, unlike before when she’s new in the game.
    But perhaps things will turn around again around the time this movie ready to release, so who knows.
    Still such risky investment anyway, knowing how fickle the audience were, one minute you’re american sweetheart people want to see you more, the next you’re trainwreck of the month – people were sick enough to see you in tabloid everyday.

  • Sparkling Peach

    Yeah.. Serena did terrible because everyone knew it had production and directing problems so you can’t judge her off that.

  • Sparkling Peach

    Wait until Joy comes out then we will see.

  • Sparkling Peach

    I did, the rest of it was crap.

  • Sparkling Peach

    Can you come back to me when you learn English? I don’t get what you just said.
