Netflix's budgets for its films are increasing, thanks to the great reception that some of them have had. Find out which Netflix movies have been the most expensive ones!
Netflix is already for many the number one choice in movies it has positioned itself in this level of popularity thanks to its excellent online service and the content in its movies.
This has resulted in its producers gradually ceasing to skimp on expenses and their films increasing their budgets, whether it be for casting, locations, logistics, or other reasons.
Check out the 5 most-expensive movies made by Netflix:
5. Bright (2017): $90 Million
Even though critics lambasted Bright when Netflix released it, it has since developed a cult following due to its racial themes and star: Will Smith. Joel Edgerton co-stars with Smith as an orc, akin to a goblin; the two play buddy cops in Los Angeles fighting corruption in an alternate reality where humans and supernatural creatures live side-by-side. Bright's $90 million budget provided Netflix an impressive return. It remains one of the company's most-streamed films.
4. Triple Frontier (2019): $115 million
Netflix took a chance of spending so much on the R-rated action-drama "Triple Frontier." It seems to have worked, as Netflix said that "Triple Frontier" was one of its most popular movies ever and was watched by 63 million households in its first four weeks of release.
3. 6 Underground (2019): $150 Million
Two names explain why Netflix's 6 Underground costs so much money to make: Ryan Reynolds and Michael Bay. This big-budget action film stars Reynolds as a former tech billionaire who fakes his own death in order to take down a terrible dictator in Asia.
Reynolds's character One assembles an international group of assassins to get the job done. When it comes to the film's ability to get the job done in terms of entertaining audiences, 6 Underground is among the most-watched ventures on Netflix.
2. The Irishman (2019): $159 million
Martin Scorsese's three-and-a-half-hour gangster epic was nominated for 10 Oscars. While it didn't win any, Netflix said it is one of its most-watched movies ever at 64 million households in its first four weeks. The budget ballooned thanks largely to dealing technology used to make the actors, including Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, look younger.
1. The Gray Man (2021): $200 Million
While details surrounding the Russo Brothers' The Gray Man are scant, it will likely be some time before this assassin thriller arrives on Netflix. It is based on the book of the same name by Mark Greaney, which follows a former CIA operative and current contract killer named Court Gentry.
The narrative takes Gentry all over the world, which explains why The Gray Man will cost $200 million. Filming is set to begin early in 2021, but it's impossible to know if this date is firm due to Covid-19.
