"Tron 2" is Most Expensive Film in History?

"Tron 2" is Most Expensive Film in History?Submit Comment
Not too long ago, we reported that the upcoming James Cameron-directed "Avatar" film has a budget over $200 million. Not bad, considering we are going through a declining economy.

But according to the Vancouver Sun (via /Film), the upcoming "Tron 2" is carrying an even bigger budget of $300 million. Here is a quote from the paper: "Vancouver post-production units are salivating at the prospects presented by the Disney remake of Tron, which carries a whopping $300 million budget and opportunities aplenty for effects and digital polish."

According to several sources, that would make the new "Tron" movie a tie for the most expensive film in history. "Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End" also carried a $300 million pricetag, followed by "Spider-Man 3" with $270 million.

Even though George Lucas previously predicted that studios would focus more on low-budget films and dump their high-priced blockbuster, it seems that the trend is going in a different direction.

I'd be shocked if this movie makes more than half its budget back.

LOl, why would disney invest 300 Million on tro2 , sillly setting the movie up for failure, now they will likely have unrealistic expectations.

I don't think it would make back it's whole budget. If anything it's only going to make 200mil at the most.
