9. Avatar (2009)
Director: James Cameron
Budget: $261 million
This movie was a dream project for James Cameron. The director waited for more than twelve years for the right technology to make this sci-fi film. This movie was one of those films that reinvented how audiences would see a big blockbuster. Avatar successfully created a new type of enjoyable 3D filming. Cameron built very advanced and very expensive 3D camera technology to create an alien world of breathtaking visuals.
Avatar even created a new language (Navi’i) and taught it to more than a hundred actors. Big names in the world of filmmaking were hired. In addition, a considerable amount was spent in the production of the special 3D glasses for audiences. What a movie!
