Big bucks bring in big crowds

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS -

What, af­ter ad­just­ing for in­fla­tion, is the most costly film ever made? Is it still Ti­tanic? Might the no­to­ri­ously ex­pen­sive Cleopa­tra still hold the ti­tle af­ter 50 years? In a re­cent ar­ti­cle, Busi­ness In­sider came up with an an­swer. The mag­a­zine reck­ons that, at a cost of nearly $342 mil­lion, Pi­rates of the Caribbean: At World’s End just knocks Cleopa­tra into sec­ond place.

The top five was com­pleted by Ti­tanic, Spi­der-Man 3 and – an­other sur­prise – Tan­gled. The only gen­uine flop in the top 10 is Kevin Cost­ner’s 1995 Water­world. (People of­ten for­get that Cleopa­tra still topped the US box of­fice in 1963.)

So, maybe you can make a for­tune by spend­ing a for­tune.
