People who added this item 1998  Average listal rating (1315 ratings) 6.3  IMDB Rating 6.7 
10. Quantum of Solace (2008)

Released in 2008, this is arguably the best sequel of all the James Bond movies. Quantum of Solace was a major hit at the box office and also fared well with the critics. The total cost involved in making this movie was estimated to be around $230 million. The total amount spent was clearly visible in the action-sets as well as the most exotic locations where the movie was shot. Worldwide Box Office: $586,090,727

People who added this item 6250  Average listal rating (4120 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating 7.4 
9. Spider-Man 2 (2004)

This movie was released in the year 2004. The sequel proved to be in no way lesser than the first part. In fact, both were said to be equally balanced and received good crowd appreciation. The cost of the movie was somewhere around $231.6 million. This enormous amount of money was mainly spent on the special effects that are the soul of this movie. Worldwide Box Office: $783,766,341

People who added this item 4101  Average listal rating (2754 ratings) 6.4  IMDB Rating 7.3 
8. King Kong (2005)

This super movie was released all over the world in the year 2005. The latest King Kong was a classic movie remake. Peter Jackson’s courage has to be appreciated, as he chose to remake a movie that had flopped at the box office 30 years ago. The budget shot up to about $231.9 million, but the movie wasn’t a big hit. Worldwide Box Office: $550,517,35

People who added this item 2584  Average listal rating (1724 ratings) 5.7  IMDB Rating 6.4 
7. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines (2003)

This movie released in 2003 came to a total cost of $237.8 million. Out of the entire cost, a part of it was dedicated to the story and the rights while even more was spent on visual effects and also talent. Worldwide Box Office: $433,371,112

People who added this item 1673  Average listal rating (1155 ratings) 5.6  IMDB Rating
6. Waterworld (1995)

Released back in 1995, this film definitely came with a huge final product cost. The total cost turned out to be somewhere around $251.2 million. The reason for this sky-height cost is the fact that about 18 months of the film shoot took place in water, which is bound to cost more than the dry land shooting. .Worldwide Box Office: $264,218,220

People who added this item 4674  Average listal rating (2915 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating 6.2 
5. Spider-Man 3 (2007)

It was released in the year 2007 and it didn’t manage to pull off as big of a response from the audience like the first two films in the series. In fact, this second sequel cost more than the first sequel. The main reason for this exorbitant $272.6 million cost is the numerous special effects that were a necessity to the third Spider Man, due to the presence of more super villains. Worldwide Box Office: $890,871,626

People who added this item 8389  Average listal rating (5335 ratings) 7  IMDB Rating 7.7 
4. Titanic (1997)

Released in 1997, the cost on this film went up to about $272.6 million. It performed very well in the box office, though, and broke some attendance records at the time. The major section of the cost was devoted to re-building the titanic with an exquisite appearance to make it identical to the original ill-fated ship. Worldwide Box Office: $1,842,879,955

People who added this item 2727  Average listal rating (1778 ratings) 5.9  IMDB Rating 6.1 
3. Superman Returns (2006)

This film came out in 2006 and was potentially weak to replace its predecessors. The total cost went up to $294.6 million, though, so it definitely came out with a bang. Worldwide Box Office: $391,081,192

People who added this item 473  Average listal rating (263 ratings) 6.7  IMDB Rating
2. Cleopatra (1963)

This movie was released in 1963 and had a final cost of about $314.6 million. Although it was the second most expensive movie ever made, it was commercially a flop of a film that served as proof of how things can still go wrong in spite of spending massive money. Worldwide Box Office:$185,900,0008

People who added this item 5321  Average listal rating (3381 ratings) 6.9  IMDB Rating 7.1 
1. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End (2007)

This film was released in 2007 and received good response from the audience, not so much because of a strong story line, but more because of the colourful settings and costumes. The final product cost was about $316.6 million. Worldwide Box Office: $960,996,492


 

The production budget for a movie is never a guarantee as to its success in the box office. Only a few really made a good profit and even fewer blew their production budget out of the water. A new addition to this list is ‘Avatar’. It would come at Number 3. It cost about $310 million to make and its worldwide box office take at the moment is $1,435,049,673 and still counting!

What about James Cameron's 'Avatar'?
Posted: 4 years ago at Oct 3 22:56
i told in the list description that avatar is still counting and cuming down the list so not final yet ! "A new addition to this list is ‘Avatar’. It would come at Number 3. It cost about $310 million to make and its worldwide box office take at the moment is $1,435,049,673 and still counting"

"What about James Cameron's 'Avatar'". Who else would it be by haha :p He only shoved it in our faces forever hee hee

I think there is something wrong with Cleopatra. You said it costed $314.6 million. It is after inflation has been calculated, right? But you said it earned only $57,777,778 but it is without inflation, right ? Anyway, you should check this out because Cleopatra was actually no real financial disaster, just like Waterworld, by the way.

Why is Spider-Man so successful? It sux!! xD
Well anways, very cool list :D
Posted: 4 years ago at Oct 4 12:16
:)yes you are right its Most expensive productions (adjusted for inflation)but the tottal gross is calculated over a long time so its heard to find its accurate gross, although cleopatra was the highest grossing film of 1963, earning US $26 million, yet made a loss due to its cost of $44 million.it contradicts allot.
Worldwide Box Office:$185,900,000
Posted: 4 years ago at Oct 4 17:26
So, why is only one of the budgets here adjusted for inflation then? Makes little sense having only some of the budgets not adjusted by inflation and the others not. And, in my opinion, the non-adjusted figures are fairly meaningless anyway.

As for the most expensive film in history, it is often said to be Russian film War and Peace (1967) which I think has a budget of over $700 million when adjusted by inflation.
Posted: 4 years ago at Oct 4 23:06
yap brother ur rite war and peace "Voyna i mir" waz a Russian movie budget of 700 million but it was not an Hollywood movie 8 hours long Russian movie. i extract the movies from Hollywood , otherwiz there are many other movie industry's like bollywood ,lollywood Shanghai film etc
and as i told before the list is "Most expensive productions (adjusted for inflation)" all the production budgets are adjusted to inflation :)

I thank most of theme dosen't worth it.
Posted: 4 years ago at Oct 5 12:31
yap they doesn't !
Posted: 4 years ago at Oct 5 13:09
How does this list work, I'm afraid i can't get my head around how you calculate from number 1 to 10, based on the money they have grossed and spent.


And btw, how do i add lists to favorites?

Very informative, I was actually surprised to see Quantum of Solace and Spider-man II there. Im actually a huge fan of SMII, glad to see the budget was well spent in that one.

what about avengers
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Dec 16 0:08
HA! ''Quantum of Solace'' was awful! what a waste, and I think you'll find ''Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone'' should defiantly be on here.
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Dec 16 2:10
Cleopatra fail at make money but make great movie
Posted: 1 year, 10 months ago at Dec 16 3:22
Interesting list. Ironic that 3 of the films listed herein (Quantum, Spider-Man 3 and Superman Returns) seem to garner less than favorable review among many I have stumbled across. I liked all three, thought SM 3 was the best of the trilogy and Superman Returns was my favorite of any of the efforts.

Just thinking out loud...:)
