Guess How Much Money Jaden Smith Was Paid For The Karate Kid Remake

JadenSmithKarateKid300.jpgWhat economic crisis? Two years ago, a 10-year-old Jaden Smith was cast in the Hollywood remake of The Karate Kid, which his parents Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith were producing. For whatever reason, the financial details of Jaden's contract are just now surfacing, and it makes for some allowance.

According to the report, the actor received a total upfront payment of $1 million. As a back-end deal on the film, which earned over $350 million worldwide, Jaden Smith earned a $2 million bonus plus other in-contract perks that were not specified. At the time, Smith's only other film credits were The Pursuit of Happyness and The Day the Earth Stood Still.

So maybe Will Smith should just go ahead and retire after all.

    How much did Jackie Chan and Taraji P. Henson make on the film?
    $3 mil on a $350 mil film seems small. The profits must be pretty nice.

    Super nice! I thank the smith family very much for making my kid want to be who she is! a cute african american 9 yr old. For to long our young men/boys only see cute light bright girls only as beautiful. Willow smith is refreshing. congrates to Jaden job well done!

    don't know if this your intention but it kind of sounds like you're thanking them for making your 9 year old daughter attractive to boys.
