Movie production costs compared: Cost per second

Watching a movie is almost always a good experience. People are are working months on one movie, so the final product would occupy your attention for a hour or two.

I was eager to find out how much did it cost to make one second of most popular movies ever produced. The answer is a lot. Blink for a moment and BAM! You've just missed thousands of dollars worth of footage.

I'll let the numbers speak for themselves.

cost per second

    With all that budget they still manage to make shitty movies. Sometimes I can't help but see this when watching a movie:

    Well, if it makes you feel better, Pattinson was clipped by a taxi while trying to escape from the same mob of screaming fangirls who contributed to that.

    i just shat what was, in essence, a functional scat grenade. it emerged from my anus in one big wallop of a push, and consisted of oatmeal-like diarrhea encapsulated in a hard stool shell. it exploded immediately upon exiting my rectum, and the fecal shrapnel covered the interior of my toilet bowl. anyone got a cigarette?

    What the hell?
    That shit Twilight took the least to produce, and it made more than King Kong?

    Retards. All of you.

    I can't help but notice the lower earnings:cost ratios are attached to the better films. Goddamn public.

    It seems the more a film costs the more mediocre it is and film makers are a self indulgent bunch who make films to please themselves and if it makes money, keep the format and pretend its a new film.

    While farming wow gold is not just killing monsters to collect the coin drops, these changes significantly affect the cost of things on the Auction House and overall "Cost of doing business" in WoW. Garden Furniture
