#8. The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) – $250 million

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (2014) - $250 million

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is a 2014 epic high fantasy action film directed by Peter Jackson and written by Jackson, Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, and Guillermo del Toro. The film received mixed reviews and grossed over $956 million worldwide, making it the second highest-grossing film of 2014 and the 35th highest-grossing film of all time. At the 87th Academy Awards, the film received a nomination for Best Sound Editing. The movie had a budget of $5 million — not exactly the $250 million The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies had to play with, but not a paltry sum, either. It’s a large wager to gamble on the possibility that would-be moviegoers might be put off by a heroine who is, in the words of one Amazon reviewer who likely won’t be purchasing a ticket, “self-indulgent, whiny, promiscuous,” and “lacking a moral compass of any kind.”
