Back Up Your Knowledge With Numbers as Cold and as Hard as Ice Cubes
Did you know that The Adventures of Pluto Nash had a budget over over $100 million, of which it earned back only 7%?* That Mad Max earned back nearly 500 times its budget, making it one of the greatest movie successes of all time?
Well, you will after reading the dickens out of this list of the budget and gross (both US and worldwide) of nearly every movie ever made. The list isn't quite comprehensive, but it's sorted numerically in descending order by budget, which makes it fun to scroll through. Why not find out the cheapest flick you've ever seen? (Mine is Richard Dutcher's 2000 flick God's Army, with its budget of 300k).
*Serves it right.
