Avatar and a movie Pirates of the Caribbean they are among the most expensive films in cinema history, spending hundreds of thousands of dollars to create the worlds we saw on screen.
And it is that making a film is not easy or cheap, but some manage with low budgets (by Hollywood standards) and others need to bring out the heavy artillery and that costs the studios more than we can imagine. All of this translates into special effects, better actors and explosive scenes, and has even helped several movies become big hits.
Avatar (which has a sequel coming out), for example, probably wouldn’t be one of the highest-grossing movies of all time if they’d saved a few bucks and used less groundbreaking effects.
According to data from Box Office Mojo and Mental Flossthere are a few movies that use ridiculously high budgets to be made, the good thing is that many of them also grossed large amounts at the box office.
