The Hobbit

"The Hobbit" has a lot to live up to when it comes out later this month.

The near $250 million budget of Peter Jackson's prequel to the famed "Lord of the Rings" trilogy will set the precedent for the next two sequels for both MGM and Warner Brothers.

However, it's not just Jackson's films that are breaking the bank.

The price at which it costs to produce some of Hollywood's biggest box office blockbusters – and flops – has risen drastically in the last few years. 

Next year, "Iron Man 3,""Oz the Great and Powerful," and "The Lone Ranger" are among the films with budgets north of $200 million. 

We turned to IMDB to find some of the priciest films to ever produce and then formed our own list after adjusting for inflation.

We've also included the original reported and estimated budgets for comparison. A few franchises make it on the list twice.
