Movies That Took Ages to Make

Producing, filming, and editing a flick is usually an endeavour that requires time, but these movies that took ages to produce went beyond the expected norm. On average, a film takes an estimated two years from the moment of preproduction until it’s ready to be screened in cinemas, although this time frame can vary according to the cast, crew, location setting, and other factors. However, in spite of their delay hitting the box offices, most of the movies on this list did end up having moderate success.

Unlike the 8 most expensive movies of 2013, which we recounted in a previous article, these films didn’t necessarily start out with a large budget, but in most cases had to stretch it significantly to ensure the final product would be completed. So, from animated films to Hollywood blockbusters, let’s take a look at the movies that took ages to make.

8. The Lego Movie

Last year the Lego Movie hit the cinemas, attracting a large audience of children and adult fanatics alike, but what most people don’t know is that the computer animated film took a total of 4 years to complete. The reason for this is the Lego bricks themselves, which required extensive attention to detail. The script also took several rewriting efforts to get it just right, but the end result was definitely worth it.
