How Steven Spielberg Made Millions Off 'Star Wars' After A 1977 Bet With George Lucas


There were two bets mentioned in the news over the weekend. One was a drunk bet where a guys swallowed a fork. Don’t worry, he swallowed it handle-end first … he’ll survive. The second bet mentioned in the new was a bet made a long time ago on a film set far, far away … talking about the 70s. George Lucas and Steven Spielburg were both working on sci-fi films-one being  "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" and the other obviously being Star Wars. The two directors were betting that each other’s film would be the biggest hit of all time.  Needless to say Spielberg, who bet on Star Wars ,won big time on that bet where George Lucas promised him 2.5 percent of Star Wars.  The film has made $1.48 billion at the box office, making it the second-biggest box-office hit of all time — only behind "Gone With The Wind." This means Spielberg's 2.5 percent has made him nearly $40 million. And he has George Lucas still sends him money to this day. I wonder how much money the guy from the first story got for swallowing a fork. Something tells me, not a whole lot.  Read the rest of the story [here].
