Both the budget and the gross are adjusted for inflation but the gross concerns only the US domestic gross.

I don't know why but I didn't know that "King Kong" was such a poor box office performer. Not the worst but still compared to Water World?
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Mar 15 2:21
I own all off these movies besides Cleopatra there are some great i.e( Toy story, The dark knight,Avatar) movies some are ok i.e( Transformers's, 2012 , Superman returns ) but all these are MUST OWN for ALL

@jaytoast, it concerns the unadjusted gross for the US. For this movie, you can double it for the Worldwide gross ($547m unadjusted).

Also, when a movie gets released on DVD, it can add significantly to its gross, especially if it gets good word of mouth.

What about Heaven's Gate, The Deer Hunter, and Apocalypse Now?
Posted: 2 years, 5 months ago at Mar 15 7:50
@blankend. I have never heard that 'The Deer hunter' was a really expensive movie and concerning 'Heaven's gate' and 'Apocalypse now', they never came near such huge budgets

'The deer hunter': $15m (non-adjusted)
'Heaven's gate' : $44m (non-adjusted)
'Apocalypse now' : $31m (non-adjusted)

I still can't believe how expensive "Tangled" was. I've tried looking into it and kind find any legit reason.
Posted: 1 year, 4 months ago at Apr 21 18:36
@Stehako, for your info, 'Tangled' was 6 years in development which is very long for an animated feature and they employed a unique artistic style by blending features of both computer-generated imagery (CGI) and traditional animation together, while utilizing non-photorealistic rendering to create the impression of a painting (wikipedia). Maybe that explained why it was so expansive.
