From the title, I thought he was getting paid the $60.00 as a "retainer" of sorts and then the real money would come from points.

I would think Bob Hoskins or Brian Cox as Blofeld and my cat, Terr, as the cat.
Yeah, that's who I was going to say. Terr, your cat.

Brosnan didn't walk away. He wasn't asked to come back.

But I doubt these box office numbers are adjusted for inflation. One reason Casino Royale made more was due to the fact that movie tickets cost more now than they did even a few years ago when Die Another Day was released. So these numbers are somewhat misleading. I'm not denying the fact that CR did well... but I'm pretty sure more people actually paid to see Goldeneye, but at a much lower overall ticket price. Back in 1995 a regular priced ticket was around $7.50 max, and today that same ticket is well over $10.00 in comparison.

Craig's per picture salary is also $1.5 million less than Brosnan made for Die Another Day. Not including royalties and other residuals. But, Craig will make more up front overall because Brosnan was paid only around $4 million for Goldeneye receiving a pay increase with each additional film.

Look what you did to Mr. Bigglesworth!

I can't help but say that whenever I see that cat in the Bond movies.

Agreed. I've never subscibed to all the blockbuster record breakers of the past couple decades. In the 1960s adult prices were $1.50/.75 matinee and kids under 12 with an adult were free. Based on number of tickets sold/attendance, the Connery Bonds, even OHMSS, adjusted for inflation would be well over $1 billion gross per picture.

I got paid more for doing a 30 second commercial that took 3 hours to shoot then hell get paid for doing four feature length films.

Joking aside, I think he got a sh*t deal. Like Shannon Nutt said; it wont be till around 2015 or later that the final Bond film in his contract comes around and the studio is really get him for dirt cheap. Of course, Id do four feature length films for $1 million so $60 million would get me doing my lottery happy dance.

When the hell did Brosnan die? I just saw him the other night on TMZ attacking a papparazi. Did he get the gas chamber for that?

Actually, according to Box Office Mojo only these 2 Bond films are in the Top 100 adjusted.

26 Thunderball UA $492,184,000 $63,595,658 1965

39 Goldfinger UA $436,254,000 $51,081,062 1964

Though, I should clarify that those adjusted numbers are domestic only. I doubt if they have a clear picture of what those older films did internationally.

According to imdb Thunderball did $141,200,000 worldwide which is 929,000,000 adjusted. There's still the factor of all the kids under 12 getting in free, unless they still do that.

I'd do it just to get the ladies, and drive the cool cars. They can keep the 60 bucks!
