I heard something about Spiderman 3 costing $500 million to make. It was one of the largest movie budgets ever, and they couldn't even make it that great of a movie.

Was just looking into this, interesting how much movies cost then how much they make!!!

Spiderman 3 cost 258,000,000 to make and made 1.2 bil
Titanic cost 200mil and made 2.4 bil (one of highest earners of all time)
Blair witch cost 35 grand and made 300 mil
Most successful films gross around 300-500million. So to put it in context, grand theft auto is doing very, very well. In fact gaming is doing very well altogether

its kinda sad really... id think in todays world $500 million could be spent on much better things than a videogame... how bout feeding people? or reducing pollution? nope, us north americans would rather sit in front a tv watching movies or playing their 360 while eating a bag of potato chips. sooner or later humanity as a whole is going to need to get their values straightened out... sorry for the rant.
At long last...
