Default Composition of the Commission

To what extent does an agent receive commission from a deal? For everything included in the contract?

Sale/Option money -- Sure, I know that.

But..,

What about net points? Box office bonus? Remake? Novelisation? TV/VOD royalties?

Thank you guys! So, in a way, we could say that they get everything which was specified in the contract they negotiated, right? Because residuals aren't negotiated in a contract.

But what if, for example, a screenwriter was asked in person to give a paid lecture? So, it wasn't negotiated through their agent and it wasn't a film script.

No, I would not commission an agent for something like that.
