We're getting into summer blockbuster season - Hancock, The Incredible Hulk, WALL-E, Get Smart (which I am so excited for), The Love Guru, The Dark Knight - there are definitely a lot of options. But none of them even come close to making the top 10 priciest movies list. This list does consider inflation.

The 10 Most Expensive Movies Ever

1. War and Peace - 1968 - $560,000,000
2. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End - 2007 - $300,000,000
3. Cleopatra - 1963 - $295,000,000
4. Spider-Man 3 - 2007 - $258,000,000
5. Titanic - 1997 - $247,000,000
6. Waterworld - 1995 - $238,089,566.93
7. Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines - 2003 - $216,400,000
8. X-Men: The Last Stand - 2006 - $210,000,000
9. Spider-Man 2 - 2004 - $210,000,000
10. Superman Returns - 2006 - $209,000,000

If you ignore inflation, though, you'd drop War and Peace, Cleopatra, Waterworld, T3 and X-Men 3. Then add in Quantum of Solace, Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest, King Kong (2005), Iron Man and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
