When I think of big sets and enormous budgets I think of films that take place in different environments like otter space, different planets mythical worlds and exotic places. I choose Pirates of the Caribbean for many reasons, one, cause I love those films and the stories in them! Two, because the sets are so great. They filmed everywhere around the world for this films from London, to Puerto Rico, to Dominica and other Caribbean islands, and of course Disney Studios. Every film give you a feeling of authentic islands and vast oceans, and even the crew looks real, when they show indigenous people they actually look like them! And Third, because Johnny Depp has a pirate? Come on it’s amazing and you know it! All four installments combined have had a budget of about 1 billion dollars and have grossed 3.7 billion world wide. I have posted a video of a classic scene which depicts typical Pirates of The Caribbean aspects, real sets, sword battles, fast paced movements and Captain Jack Sparrow getting into shenanigans.
Avengers: Age of Ultron had a budget of about $280 million, and made over $1.4 billion worldwide. I believe that this movie captivated a lot of viewers because of all the CGI. Plus a lot of people are into Marvel comics. I can see why it was a big budget movie because of all the big movie star actors are in it and the visual effects put into the movie. They really put a lot of detail from making Tony Stark’s high tech lab to the design of Ultron. I think the budget was worth it because they made a profit. To make a movie with all that visual effects and so much detail poured into it and end up with a huge profit is good.
