There are some movies that we will never forget. Disney classics that makes us travel through time helping us remember our childhood. Dance movies that made us sing and dance while watching them. Comedies that even though we know each of the jokes, makes us laugh every time we watch them.
Making a movie can be a very expensive project – the cast, the crew, the effects, the sets, the props, there are many things. Sometimes, film studios take gambles and invest crazy amounts of money. Sometimes these movies are HUGE hits and the gamble pays off, sometimes they movies tank and the losses are great. Here, we are going to show you some of the most expensive movies of all times.
Who didn’t watch this one? I mean, anyone can remember this part of the movie and almost everyone of us cried at the end of it. One of the most popular movies in the whole world, in my opinion of course.
What you probably didn’t know is that it is also one of the most expensive movies of all times. James Cameron, its director, spent $200 million USD in its production. Do you remember all those extras and big shots of the whole thing sinking? Something that we will never forget. Each shot was definitely necessary, and while the gamble was very high it paid off.
This movie, when it was originally released, featured many cool and new effects and techniques that hadn't been used a lot before. I mean, the special effects, Kong itself and the rest of the production were all new things for our eyes.
$207 million USD was the cost of production. I couldn’t believe this was true! However, when I think of it, it definitely makes sense. I mean, its director Peter Jackson thought of shots with the empire state building so over six Empire State buildings had to be constructed!
James Cameron once again! Just think of it. This director had to teach each of the actors a whole new language to communicate, he invented a whole new different world, painted a lot of bodies with blue paint leaving behind the fact that he used the latest technology and special effects.
They took it to a whole new level reaching a cost of production of $237 million USD. Thinking of each of the things this movie had to spend money with, it makes sense. However, do you think it was worth it? Even though it had the best screenwriters etc.? In my opinion, it definitely was worth the price. However, I know many people didn’t enjoy it as much as I did.
