The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part II (2012) – $829.7 million
Pattinson earned $2 million for the first Twilight film and a reported $12 million for New Moon. He is said to have received a base salary of $12.5 million for both Breaking Dawn movies, with a 7.5% cut of the gross, which amounted to around $40 million for each.
