Mark Wahlberg got a $30 million paycheck for his titular role in Netflix’s 2020 action-comedy film Spenser Confidential. That huge salary for Wahlberg was all worth it, as the Peter Berg-directed movie became the streamer’s third-biggest movie of all time, with about 85 million households watching it in its first 28 days of release.

An adaptation of the 2013 novel Robert B. Parker’s Wonderland by author Ace Atkins, Spenser Confidential is the fifth collaboration Wahlberg and Berg following Lone Survivor (2013), Deepwater Horizon (2016), Patriots Day (2016), and Mile 22 (2018).
