6. Peter Jackson -$400 million
Known for: All the Lord Of the Rings, The Hobbit 1 and 2;
Up-coming movies: The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies;
If you are into fantasy and good stories with awesome characters, Peter Jackson’s movies are the ones you must see.
He is the person that turned JRR Tolkein’s books into the immortal and profitable, Lord of the Rings series.
But that wasn’t all. His new Hobbit trilogy may not be quite as profitable, but it isn’t that bad. It’s still doing very well worldwide and that is a great thing for his pockets.
