What Was the Most Expensive Movie Ever Made?

The costliest film ever made comes, surprisingly, not from Hollywood, but from Russia! This film, a 1960s version of the novel War and Peace, took five years to make, was over six hours long, and cost over 96 million dollars.

The most successful movie of all time, however, is Star Wars, which earned over $350 million worldwide ($130 million in America alone) in its first year, and is still making money.

The second most successful film in history is Jaws, followed by The Godfather, The Exorcist, and The Sound of Music.
