No. 8: World War Z

Production costs: $190 million
Brad Pitt’s latest movie had a huge budget to work with. The magnificent imagery and out-of-this-world special effects made the movie well worth watching.

No. 7: Star Trek – Into the Darkness

Production costs: $190 million
When producers decided to come up with yet another sequel to the Star Trek series, they knew they had a large base of followers and fans worldwide. This might explain why they decided to invest no less than $190 million in its production budget.

No. 6: Pacific Rim

Production costs: $190 million
Mesmerizing special effects and detailed-oriented costumes rose production costs for Pacific Rim to a whopping $190 million. Nonetheless, the sci-fi flick gathered quite the fan base, which compensates for the overwhelming costs of making the movie.

No. 5: Iron Man 3

Production costs: $200 million
Iron Man 3 was one of 2013’s most popular movies in cinemas. Action-loving fans gathered in cinemas all around the world to see the third installment in the series, which is also the most expensive Iron Man movie ever made, with production costs amounting to $200 million.

No. 4: Monsters University

Production costs: $200 million
It took producers twelve years to come up with a follow-up for the original Monsters, Inc, released back in 2001. Nonetheless, the wait was well worth it, as the movie was a hit in cinemas. Monsters University ranks as this year’s costliest animation movie, but we’re assuming that producers are satisfied with the sales the movie generated.

No. 3: The Lone Ranger

Production cost: $215 million
The Lone Ranger has been one of the most disappointing movies of the year, mainly because we expected a lot more from a superstar like Johnny Depp. Nonetheless, despite the movie being somewhat of a flop at the Box Office, it did cost a whole lot of money to make it.

No. 2: Man of Steel

Production cost: $225 million
So many movies about Superman have been made so far, that is really hard to keep track. But we assume that Man of Steel will hold an important spot in cinematic history, mainly due to its mind-blowing production costs: $225 million.

No. 1: The Hobbit – The Desolation of Smaug

Production costs: $250 million
A movie that uses so many special effects, out-of-this world costumes, and breathtaking sceneries was bound to be expensive. The second movie in The Hobbit series had production costs amounting to a staggering quarter of a billion dollars. With the third and final movie on its way, we expect that director Peter Jackson will make even more expenses to ensure a high quality film.
