How much is Johnny Depp worth to Hollywood?

for a single scene Johnny Depp you can collect 10 million dollars, that is, more than what you will receive from your ex-partner Amber Heard after the resolution of a trial that lasted six weeks. At least that was the agreement for his brief appearance in the new installment of “Fantastic Beasts”where finally could not be due to legal issues.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, whoever agreed to give up the film did not take away his check. The reason is that he did not resign on his own initiative, but accepted the request of the studios Warner and, in addition, like the rest of the cast, he had a payment or reproduction contract, something that implies full payment regardless of whether the film was made or not, or in the editing process, the character was removed.

But is your presence worth just a few minutes and maybe a day’s work? Three films in which she stars, all belonging to the saga of “Pirates of the Caribbean”, are among the 100 highest-grossing films of all time: “On Stranger Tides”, is in position 41; “At World’s End” is at 55 and “Dead Men Tell No Tales” also known as “Salazar’s Revenge” at 94.

Johnny Depp had a leading role in “Fantastic Beasts” until the legal conflict with Amber Heard began And he has a fourth film, which he does not lead, but whose character is essential to the story: “Alice in Wonderland”, which is on site 45. In all of them, for every dollar invested in production, an average of 5 greenbacks were obtained at the world box office. In Hollywood, a good movie is considered when at least the investment is recovered and a similar amount is earned. “Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl,” released in 2003, ranks 146th, beating more recent titles with a big-dollar marketing infrastructure like “Star Wars” Episode II, the sequel from “Hunger Games” and “Thor: The Dark World.”

The presence of Johnny Depp in a movie, a sure success at the box office With a filmography close to 100 productions, between film and television, the 58-year-old actor wandered between the commercial cinema led by Captain Jack Sparrow and some more proactive stories that they do not necessarily appear in the box office top. Jack Sparrow was one of the most emblematic roles played by Johnny Depp in his career. But that doesn’t matter because his drag is so great that even smaller films almost always win with his presence, such as “Black Mass”, released in theaters in 2015 and which it cost 55 million dollars and almost doubled in box office.

One that was not as successful was “Transcendence”, which only made three million more than what was spent on it (100 million against 103 million).

Failures? Some. “Mortdecai,” which she produced and starred in seven years ago, made a loss at $60 million but only made $47 million in theaters. In the end, the balance is positive, that’s why when a producer of “Pirates of the Caribbean” was asked if Depp would be in the new installment, even being in legal trouble, the answer was that it was too early to say something and there was a lot left. future.
