    In the misc films forum someone said the budget for Supes was going to be "way over 200 million". Is this true ? Maybe this could be the official budget thread or something.

    I thought Harry Potter was in the 300 millions range?

    Harry Potter was around 130 million dollars. I'm not sure if Returns is the most expensive, but it's certainly up there. I know Titanic was 200 million. All I've heard is 200 mill or more. Nothing concrete. It's certainly going to be ONE of the most expensive..but the most...who knows.

    If it's WB's most expensive movie as Singer or Dougherty I believe said, then it will be in the 200 Million range. However, being that they are filming in Sydney (where it's cheaper) I'd say it's closer to 180-190 Million. (which is a lot for filming in Australia. Not even the Matrix Movies cost as much to make)

    I think Titanic got to 240 mill. That is why he had to go to Paramount for the extra money. That is why it is a 20th Century Fox and Paramount Production.

    it was me and according to imdb and austrailian newspaper,its budget is "limitless". hell some guy said he asked singer how much it was and he said "it changes...it keeps getting bigger" i believe it went.

    That wasn't Singer who said that, but it was someone on the production.

    As for Titanic, it was $200 mill, the same as Spider-man II, both currently hold the highest, produced, film budget.

    It is the Goblet of Fire, the most recent Harry Potter movie that is rumoured to be in excess of $300 million.

    Not disputing your claim of Potter but 300 mill seems WAY to high. I can't honestly think of what would push the production that high. CGI while pricey wouldnt do it. Locations I suppose could but that would mean it shot all over the world. I have yet to read the book so I have no idea how detailed it is. Any thoughts? Just curious as to what could honestly push it to over 300.

    the fact that it's going to be well over 3 hours could jack up the budget. as well, the kids can only work 4 hours a day. that means longer time on locations, studio, etc. don't know if that accounts for 300 mil, but it certainly elevates an already expensive movie.

    I don't see why this should be such an expensive movie, but if every dollar they spend makes it better then I don't see why they shouldn't have a big budget.

    Potter wont be the most expensive film ever made... that was just marketing BS.

    I believe adjusting for inflation CLEOPATRA is still the most expensive film ever made.

    I dunno, a year ago I thought it was going to be War Of The Worlds, which I think was originally reported as well over $200 million. Or at least that's what the news reports were saying.

    I'm just assuming, considering the book is over 600 pages, and there's not much room for cutting. originally they were going to make 2 movies out of it, then there was talk of having an intermission. I'm not sure precisely how long it will be, but i think it's safe to assume at least 3 hours.

    I believe adjusted it's Lawrence of Arabia but I'm not talking about adjustments for inflation.

    so I guess it does have the highest budget ever. Why isn't that bigger news?
