Expensive movies aren’t really big news. We all know it takes a whopping budget to produce a blockbuster however, the latest news about Johnny Depp’s film “The Lone Ranger” being held off due to money issues, makes all of us wonder about other high budget movies. “The Lone Ranger” was shelved after consuming a whopping £154 million. I thought it would be interesting to browse through other films which have consumed this much or more. It was not easy work, as complex economical phenomena such as inflation causes twists in the calculation of expenses. Researchers did some hard work to produce this list of the 10 Most Expensive Movies ever made, and here they are, in reverse order.
10. Spider-Man 2 and King Kong
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.
