King Kong in the Top ten most expensive films

That's right people. King Kong ranks as the 6th most expensive film in the history of Hollywood.

The total movie costed $207 million dollars, almost 20 times than the original King Kong movie, back in 1933.

The most expensive ever was Cleopatra, with Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton, directed by Joseph Mankiewicz in 1963, for $286,4-million (in 2005 money). Second was Titanic-$247 million, third was Waterworld-$229 million, fourth Terminator 3-$216 million, and fifth Spiderman 2- $210 million.

Below King Kong are Wild Wild West-$203,8 million and Speed 2-$198 million dollars.

The 1933 Kong was made for less than $1 million (I believe the number was $200k) - which would make the new Kong 1000 times as expensive.

It's a great movie - a proper homage to the original, which I still revere as one of the best movies of all time. Peter Jackson is a genius.
