The Most Expensive Hollywood Movies

John Carter

8. John Carter

The 2012 movie John Carter was adapted from the Science Fiction classic A Princess of Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. The cost to create the epic John Carter came in at $306.6 million. Unfortunately for the investors John Carter didn’t perform nearly as well as it should have based on the amount of cash that was thrown into this movie. The film only earned $284.1 million which ended up not even covering the huge production and marketing costs involved in making and promoting the movie. There was an idea to make a sequel however that was put on the shelf because the original didn’t do as well as many had hoped. We’ll have to wait and see if the sequel gets made at a later date.
