About 20p. Less if the format is inflexible for screen size.
Wow, that's not a lot.

I paid AU$12 to watch District 9 last night. I also just finished reading Gates of Fire by Steven Pressfield. Reading the book was free because a friend lent it to me and yet I reckon I enjoyed the book as much as if not more than I enjoyed watching District 9. I reckon Steven Pressfield should have earned at least a $1 out of me.
