Expensive movies

Screen Shot 2020-10-16 at 5.34.52 AM

The first million dollar movie in Hollywood was FOOLISH WIVES (1922). Produced by Carl Laemmle.

BEN-HUR (1925) was the most expensive silent movie made in Hollywood. It cost nearly $4 million.

CLEOPATRA (1963) cost 20th Century Fox $31 million. That would be $260 million in today’s economy.

The Lord of the Rings trilogy from the early 2000s cost $260 million. The Hobbit trilogy from the early 2010s cost $623 million. Keep in mind that is three movies for each of those price tags.

The most expensive single movie, so far, is PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: ON STRANGER TIDES (2011). It cost $379 million to produce. And that’s 2011 dollars, so you’d have to increase that amount today with inflation…which would be $434 million now, in 2020.

Costly flops

HEAVEN’S GATE (1980)…its failure with audiences bankrupted the producing company/studio.

THE BONFIRE OF THE VANITIES (1990)…its budget was three times more than its box office take.

KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD (2017)…it cost Warner Brothers $175 million to make plus they spent another $100 million on marketing. That’s a $275 million price tag. But its worldwide gross was only $148 million.
