3 – The movie Titanic cost more to make than it cost to build the actual Titanic.
Titanic, the 1997 James Cameron film starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, is known as one of the biggest blockbusters in the history of filmmaking. At that time, it was the most expensive movie ever made.
Titanic cost an unbelievable $200 million to produce in 1997, which is more than it cost the actual Titanic ocean liner to be built between 1910-1912. The cost to build the ship was, at the time, $7.5 million, which, adjusted for inflation, is about the equivalent of $120 million – $150 million in 1997 terms.
