In a 2.1 Vanity Fair posting about big-time Hollywood salaries, contributing editor Peter Newcomb reveals that (a) “by the time Avatar plays out on broadcast television, James Cameron will make close to $350 million” (and he’ll be making two more Avatar sequels for creative kicks?), (b) Johnny Depp pocketed a third of a $150 million “profit pool” from Alice in Wonderland (or roughly $50 million?) and was paid $35 million for the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean$85 million total; (c) Vince Vaughn got paid $17.5 million for The Dilemma; (d) Michael Bay got paid over $100 million in 2010.

That’s over $550 million paid to four guys with Vaughn getting the pauper’s slice.
