As for the film’s theatrical performance, it has now managed to cross the $100 million mark in its domestic market. While it looks like a big feat, it is certainly a letdown since big projects often reach this milestone in their opening weekend. Adding the international box-office numbers, the earnings are still less than $250 million which is now pushing the film to get enlisted among the biggest box-office bombs of all time.

While many point out the production budget to have been a crucial factor for his fair salary, the real reason lies in his acting career. Despite having a strong portfolio with some amazing indie works, the actor was not featured in some big box-office blockbusters since his super-stardom era kicked off.

He gained international recognition with his Cedric Diggory role in Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. He rose to further prominence by portraying the role of Edward Cullen in the Twilight saga. Given that his career was not sparkling with promising box-office numbers, he was pretty much like other renowned actors which is why his salary was less than one would have thought.

The Flash is running in theatres meanwhile Pattinson’s The Batman is available to stream on HBO Max.
