The Most Expensive Movie Ever Made
Spider-Man 3 will be a huge hit when it opens on May 4th. There's no doubt about that. The last film grossed over $1 billion worldwide. Radar is reporting that the movie cost a mind-boggling $500 million to put together including production costs and marketing. Insiders say production alone cost $350 million.
A rep from Sony says it only cost $270 million. Only?! Producer Laura Ziskin said, "I refuse to say the [real] number because it makes me choke. 'Spider-Man 3' was a super-expensive movie - the most expensive film we've ever made. But there's no way you can get to $300 million."
I'm sure making Kiki Dunst look halfway decent cost at least $80 million.
