5) Avengers: Age of Ultron
This year’s superhero blockbuster movie included everyone from Captain America, Iron Man, The Hulk, Thor, Falcon, Quicksilver and Black Widow.
It became the third-highest-grossing film in North America, behind Avatar and Titanic, but, superheroes don’t come cheap.
Before production started, multiple members of the Age Of Ultron cast threatened to quit if their contractual demands weren't met.
Marvel had some serious work cut out for them if they wanted all the big names back on board for the Avengers sequel.
All of them were reportedly looking for $5 million on the table and a cut of the post-release profits.
On top of that, there were the far-flung international locations, drone cameras were used for some of the filming, and lots of CGI.
Despite its huge $280 million cost, Age Of Ultron brought in almost $1.3 billion at the worldwide box office.
Tangled was so expensive mainly because of how long it took to get the story right.
It took about ten years of multiple aborted attempts at the movie, each of which got pretty far in before they scrapped everything and started again.
What’s more, extensive research was done to develop the animation process that allowed the CGI to evoke some of the qualities of traditional hand-drawn Disney characters.
An entertaining if rather forgettable Disney animation that in no way earned its colossal budget.
Tangled eventually bagged a profit when it was released in international theaters, grossing $592 million.
3) Spider Man 3
When Spider-Man was released in 2002, it almost single handedly laid the groundwork for the current superhero boom.
But, then they just started throwing money at the franchise…And unfortunately, making expensive, flagship superhero sequels is no small or simple feat.
Production for the movie dragged on into late summer where it had been scheduled to conclude in June, pushing up the costs dramatically.
On top of that, there was the huge cost of CGI, the web-slinging set pieces, the star salaries and of course the marketing and promotion campaign costs.
Even though the reception of spider man 3 wasn't great, it still managed to make a healthy profit as it grossed $891 million worldwide.
The cost to construct the Titanic set was somewhere between $120 to $150 million alone.
For that amount of money, you could of made 2 or 3 decent Hollywood films.
Remember the scene where the water comes crashing in down the staircase as Rose and Jack try to escape?
It only had one shot, because the set and furnishings were so hugely expensive to produce there was no room for error.
However it all paid off.
Titanic made its huge production costs part of its marketing campaign, promoting the rich value of the movie like none other at the box office.
Despite it’s $294 million price tag, it made a crazy $2.2 billion.
That's almost a $2 billion profit on a movie.
1) Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides
Regardless of the huge production costs of $397 million, it was a blockbuster movie that made a very decent return.
Disney realised how successful the franchise is, so didn't mind blowing their cash as they knew they would make a killing even if they spent twice that.
Johnny Depp’s salary for the film was an estimated $55 million which is unheard of for most actors.
The film ended up grossing just over $1 billion, making the a cool $600 million profit.
