Some hit, some will have their moment to prove themselves during the holiday season and Summer 2013.

johnny depp the lone rangers with armie hammer most expensive movies

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian It’s surprising that this $225MM dollar movie actually doubled profit in the box office. Mainly because, well… we don’t know anyone who has seen it.

johnny depp pirates of the caribbean dead man's chest expensive movies

 Pirates Of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest - The first ‘Pirates’ was a wild success, so one can only assume that the sequel would be flooded with money. $225MM worth in fact… and then make it back in spades.

james bond quantum of solance most expensive movies

Quantum Of Solace: $230MM was plugged into the 2nd Craig/Bond flick. Even though the film was a let down for Bond fans, especially after the incredible ‘Casino Royal’ the film still made half a billion dollars. Skyfall easily makes up for Quantum Of Solace and will easily make it's big budget back along with pulling in new fans for the 50 year old super spy.

henry cavill man of steel most expensive superhero movies

Superman: This highly anticipated film made over $300MM in box office. Sounds impressive right? Too bad it cost $232MM to make. Definitely not the blockbuster the studios thought it would be. Now there back trying again hoping Zack Snyder can do better with Henry Cavill in Man Of Steel.

johnny depp pirates of the caribbean on stranger tides

Pirates Of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides - They just keep makin’ em. And they just keep makin’ money on em. This one cost a fat $250MM. It was the weakest of the franchise, but still a popcorn-pusher. And yes… they are making another.
