Hollywood is famously one of the most lucrative businesses in the world and over the years, it has produced some seriously expensive movies. While producers are used to being faced with costs of a few million dollars, there are some projects out there which have alarmed even the most seasoned of filmmakers. These films costed the most to be made out of every film in history and, incredibly, didn’t always make such a big splash in cinemas.
Transformers: Age Of Extinction — $210 Million
Michael Bay’s monster robot movies might not be to everyone’s tastes, but they sure do pull all the punches in production. Packed full of special effects galore and mammoth fight sequences, Transformers: Age Of Extinction racked up costs of $210 million. That’s a lot of robots.
X-Men: The Last Stand — $210 Million
Only one in a series of X-Men movies, X-Men: The Last Stand turned out to be the most expensive of the lot. Was it the special effects? Was it the extra makeup? No-one really knows and with a cost of $210 million, it’s anyone’s best guess.
Oz The Great And Powerful — $215 Million
Despite enjoying a much lesser fame than its original counterpart, Oz The Great And Powerful racked up one of the biggest fees in history. Even pulling out all the stops couldn’t save this movie and despite costing $215 million, it failed to make a lasting impact in cinematic history.
Men In Black 3 — $215 Million
When production companies turn their attention to comebacks, they really try and make a go of it. Bringing the beloved tale back after a long hiatus, Men In Black 3 really did everything it could to make an impact and, costing $215 million, certainly made a good go of it.
