"Pirates 3" Remains Most Expensive Film Ever

24 June 2014 7:23 AM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A list of the thirty most expensive films ever made, adjusted for inflation in comparison to the consumer price index, has been compiled by Business Insider. What made the list isn't a shock, though the ordering is sometimes unexpected.

Both the first two "Pirates of the Caribbean" sequels and Sam Raimi's "Spider-Man" sequels made the top fifteen which encompasses all films that cost more than $250 million to produce (not to market or release) in today's dollars. "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows" didn't make the list thanks largely due to the studio splitting it into two films and thus cutting its individual film costs considerably.

Others on this list like "Tangled" and "Superman Returns" further down essentially had to swallow large development costs of previous incarnations of the projects that never got off the ground. Here's the top fifteen:

"Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" - $341.8 million

What are the 36 Most Expensive Movies Ever Madec

21 June 2014 9:59 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Update: Thanks to a reader I've added Speed 2 to the list, if you find more that should be added let me know and we'll see if we can make this a little more accurate. In today's Hollywood, movies don't seem to exist first and foremost as pieces of entertainment or as even great stories to be told. Yes, you could argue that as far back as the studio system has existed it's been a "business first" attitude, but a focus on budgets, box office and salaries seems to be at an all-time high. If you disagree, fair enough, but as a willing participant in such coverage I'm also somewhat ashamed to admit I think the heavy focus negatively effects the kind of movies we get. So, what am I going to doc I'm going to give it even more coverage. Business Insider has posted a list of the 30 most expense »

When did big budget star vehicles become the underdogs?

8 June 2014 7:30 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

After the curious case of Edge Of Tomorrow’s surprise critical popularity, Rob investigates a strange Hollywood happening…

Feature

The release of Edge Of Tomorrow - which opened in the Us this past weekend, following its bow in the UK a week earlier - has brought, not for the first time, a strange Hollywood trend to light. And it's this: do we trust big stars to make decent movies anymore?

Many people, this writer included, took a lot of convincing to venture out and see Tom Cruise in a hugely expensive sci-fi spectacular (notwithstanding the fact that Cruise has fine form in science fiction). The film in question, Edge Of Tomorrow, is directed by Doug Liman of The Bourne Identity, and based on a graphic novel with a cool title. So surely this should have been a movie which audiences were enthusiastically anticipating? Yet It didn’t seem that way, »

Weekend Report: Neeson Beats Jesus, 'Frozen' Hits $1 Billion

2 March 2014 12:12 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Non-Stop and Son of God ruled the box office over Oscar weekend. The Liam Neeson action movie took first place with $28.9 million, while Son of God was an impressive runner-up.Meanwhile, Disney Animation's Frozen became the 18th movie ever to earn over $1 billion worldwide. More importantly, it's only the fifth movie ever to hit that milestone that's not a sequel or prequel. With an opening in Japan on the way, Frozen will likely end its run in the Top 10 all-time.Playing at 3,090 locations, Non-Stop led the way with $28.9 million. That's a significant step up from recent Neeson movies Unknown ($21.9 million) and The Grey ($19.7 million). It's also on par with similar movies like Olympus Has Fallen ($30.4 million) and Inside Man ($29 million). Following Lone Survivor and Ride Along, this is the third movie from Universal Pictures to open in the top spot this year. Even more impressive is the fact that all »

Weekend Box Office: 'Non-Stop' Tops 'Son of God' as 'Lego' Passes $200 Million

2 March 2014 7:34 AM, PST | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Well, Son of God failed to ignite the religious base with the same fervor as something such as Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ, but considering it's a film edited down from a television mini-series, which is to say it's essentially the same as printing money, the $26.5 million it brought in for a second place finish this weekend is nothing to dismiss. In fact, it might not be done as it dipped only 2% from Friday to Saturday and it's not quite clear just how well it might end up doing on Sunday. Fox also has to love that "A-" CinemaScore, but what else would you expectc Taking #1, however, is the latest Liam Neeson actioner, Non-Stop, bringing in $30 million and an "A-" CinemaScore. Non-Stop is the second highest opening for one of Neeson's latest actioners, second only to Taken 2 ($49.5 million), but higher than The Grey ($19.6m), Unknown ($21.8m »

'Lego' Obliterates '3 Days,' 'Pompeii' This Weekend

23 February 2014 12:26 PM, PST | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

For the third weekend in a row, The Lego Movie easily took first place at the domestic box office. Meanwhile, 3 Days to Kill and Pompeii both attracted little interest from moviegoers.The Lego Movie fell 37 percent to an estimated $31.5 million. That's the second-highest third weekend ever for an animated movie behind Shrek 2 ($37.9 million). Through 17 days the movie has earned $183.2 million, and Warner Bros. recently announced that they are moving ahead with a sequel (currently scheduled for Memorial Day 2017). In second place, 3 Days to Kill opened to an estimated $12.3 million. That's a bit lower than The Family, which was the last collaboration between Relativity Media and French producer Luc Besson. It is at least a minor improvement over recent EuropaCorp outings like Colombiana ($10.4 million) and From Paris with Love ($8.2 million). More so than other Besson productions, 3 Days to Kill seemed like a close relative to 2009 hit Taken: both movies »

The Top 9 Sam Raimi Films - Horror and Otherwise

18 February 2014 7:30 AM, PST | DreadCentral.com | See recent Dread Central news »

From his modest start in that ramshackle cabin in the woods what must seem like a lifetime ago, Sam Raimi has become one of the more versatile and beloved directors in Hollywood. With Scream Factory's Blu-ray release of Darkman today, we bring you our Top 9 Sam Raimi Films - Horror and Otherwise.

We're going to keep this list to films directed by Raimi. If we were to include the movies he's acted in, or god forbid produced, we'd be here all night. But a few of his production credits like 30 Days of Night, both of The Grudge films, Boogeyman, The Possession, Timecop and of course the Evil Dead remake are noteworthy.

Some honorable directorial mentions include his most recent, Oz the Great and Powerful. It might not have been the epic it was billed to be, but it looked fantastic; and when you manage to haul in half a billion »

'Gravity,' 'Frozen,' 'Game of Thrones' and 'Call of Duty' win Visual Effects Society Awards

12 February 2014 11:02 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Going into Wednesday night's 12th annual Visual Effects Society Awards, there was little doubt that "Gravity" would be walking away with the lion's share of the hardware. After all, it led the field with eight nominations and has asserted itself in the category as one of few no-brainer picks in the Oscar race this year (sorry all other nominees, it happens). When the dust settled, it sported six trophies to show for itself. That's the most wins for any film since "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest" won as many seven years ago. Even "Avatar" didn't hit that number. (The »

The top 25 underappreciated films of 2006

22 January 2014 6:26 AM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Odd List Ryan Lambie Simon Brew 23 Jan 2014 - 05:44

Our series of lists devoted to underappreciated films brings us to the year 2006, and a further 25 overlooked gems...

With all the major films that elbow their way into their cinemas every year, there's bound to be some casualties among the big hits. And just like any other year, 2006 was dominated by the likes of Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, The Da Vinci Code and Ice Age: The Meltdown. But in tandem, there were dozens of lesser-seen films which shuffled in and out of cinemas (or occasionally, didn't get a release in cinemas at all) without very many people noticing.

As we're sure you're aware by now, these lists aim to redress the balance a little, and hopefully introduce a few films from any given year that you may have missed. There are also one or two films that, although »
