10 Most Expensive Movies Ever ...

The only film ever to be the highest grossing film of the year yet to run at a loss. $43 million making-cost in 1963 make up today’s enormous $314 million, putting this movie on the 1st rank in the list. Fair enough that the tale of the queen of Egypt has been crowned as number one- the most expensive movie ever made and even more remarkable given the age of the film. 

 The film was released in English-speaking countries on May 25, 2007 after Disney decided to move the release date a day earlier than originally planned. It remains the most expensive film ever made, with a budget of $300 million.The 3rd installment of the tale of “charming” pirates takes up the second rank in the list. Astonishing that even after paying out Depp’s outrageous wages, it still couldn’t reach the top.

 The film was partially funded by Paramount Pictures and 20th Century Fox – respectively, its American and international distributors – and at the time, it was the most expensive film ever made, The story of the downfall of the goddess of all ships slides easily into the 3rd position in our ranking. James Cameron’s most popular blockbuster ate up $160 million in 1997. In today’s money this figure reaches up to a huge $286 million, dwarfing many later made films.

Spider-Man 3 was commercially released in multiple countries on May 1, 2007, and released in the United States in both conventional and IMAX theaters on May 4, 2007, by Columbia Pictures.  Consuming a colossal $267 million, it came out to be a success even after the critics’ “thumbs-down” reviews.

Tangled is a 2010 American computer animated musical fantasy comedy film produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios. It is the 50th animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series. Costing $256 million in the making, it made a profit of £362 million, proving to be a box office triumph. The astonishing fact of about this Disney film is that it is supposed to be a children’s tale, but (seems like) it was liked by adults just as much.

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince is a 2009 fantasy film directed by David Yates and based on the novel of the same name by J. K. Rowling. It is the sixth instalment in the Harry Potter film series cost a little over $250 million to be assembled. The sixth installment of the popular tale of the boy wizard had no difficulty in rising to the top charts and it did a huge £570 million business. It was, by any definition a massive box office success.

Waterworld is a 1995 post-apocalyptic science fiction film. The film was directed by Kevin Reynolds and co-written by Peter Rader and David Twohy. It is based on Rader's original 1986 screenplay and stars Kevin Costner, who also produced it. It was distributed by Universal Pictures. Although initially lashed by the critics, this movie redeemed itself when it was liked/rescued by the rest of the world. According to today’s valuation it’s an all time expensive movie and it took around $248 million to make.

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest is a 2006 adventure fantasy film and the second film of the Pirates of the Caribbean series, following Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl (2003). It was directed by Gore Verbinski, written by Ted Elliott and Terry Rossio, and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. The second sequel of this classic tale of pirates cost a big $245 million to make. 

Avatar is a 2009 American epic science fiction film written and directed by James Cameron, and starring Sam Worthington, Zoe Saldana, Stephen Lang, Michelle Rodriguez, Joel David Moore, Giovanni Ribisi and Sigourney Weaver. This CGI movie gobbled up a fortune of $237 million in its making which inflated up to $243 million. This sounds like a startling amount of money but if we take a look at the £1.2 billion business this film accomplished, the initial expenditure doesn’t seem to be wasted. 

Sneaking into the list and sitting comfortably side by side on the tenth rank are Peter Jackson’s tale of the gigantic gorilla and Sam Rami’s tale of a spider’s amalgamation into a man. Both of these movies consumed a huge budget of $200 million. Inflation rates after the release of these movies took these figures up to an astonishing £145 million. This is just the beginning of the staggering money-show we are about to witness in the most expensive movies ever.
