Thanks to the internet, it has never been easier to find a movie online, or download a torrent for the latest blockbuster. Not sure if people got lazier, and have the opinion that the movie watched on the monitor of your computer is as good as the movie watched in the movie theaters, or the global economic crisis has gone that far, that the people just don’t have enough money in their home budget, and since they are already paying for the internet (from which you can download or watch movies for free), why would they further spend their money on movie theaters? However, even though the internet offers free movies, there are still plenty of 7th art lovers that are more than happy to pay for the ticket, and enjoy the full glorious experience that the movie has to offer, instead of trying to recognize if the movie you downloaded, is actually the movie you wanted, because the video is all dark and it sounds like you are listening from the bottom of a well. Having that said, it is no wonder why movie making has become insanely expensive, and unbelievable budgets are spent in the creation of the movies. If you want to have a great movie that will simply fill the theaters, you have to spend a lot of money, simple as that! And it seems that some productions have taken this really seriously, because the movies you are about to see in our list of Top 10 Most Expensive Movies of All Time, break all the records as far as the budget goes.
10. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest
Picture Source: dan-dare.org
Budget: $225 Million
The first in the “Pirates of the Caribbean” saga, the “Curse of the Black Pearl” was a movie that had its own budget, and turned out to be an unbelievable success. As we already mentioned, the bigger the money, the bigger the hit, and that is exactly what Disney did with the sequel, the “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest”. They spent much more money than with the previous one, and it payed off big time, because the movie reached $1 billion worldwide at the box office, and it did so faster than any movie before! They brought the same actors for the main roles, added a few new as well, and explained to many who didn’t know, exactly what was the Davy Jones’s locker. The major success of this sequel gave the wings to Disney to make the third part of the Pirate saga, and spend even more money, but earn like never before as well. But, more about this movie awaits you down the list.
