Ever wonder how much money Robert Pattinson received from his prominent film, Twilight? You know, the one that pretty much made him famous. In a recent lawsuit between film financier Gold Crest Film Distribution and Summit Entertainment, the details of how much the star and his costars have made were brought into the public eye. According to court documents acquired by E! News, Twilight has produced over $392 million in the worldwide box office. This amount doesn’t even count the 11.5 million DVDs sold! Now Goldcrest is suing Summit Entertainment for deprivation of money on account of illusive accounting practices. The film financier was supposed to receive a share of the worldwide revenues gained by the film’s franchise.The lawsuit states the talent agreements with Pattinson and the rest of his costars received a total of $6 million in additional retroactive bonuses. According to the lawsuit, Pattinson was “entitled to a $300,000 bonus.” When New Moon was being completed, the studio “amended the existing 2007 Twilight agreements to include additional retroactive bonuses.” Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart received $2.5 million each. But don’t be too jealous, now. They weren’t the only two to receive a large reward. Author Stephanie Meyer and screenwriter Melissa Rosenburg were awarded a  whopping half million dollars each. Also, the first Twilight film ended up paying an additional $11.5 million to actors, writers and other talent stemming from home video residuals. Wow! Talk about making the big bucks!
