A new franchise for the Matrix: The Matrix Sequel cost a reported $30,000 million, and the movie itself was not cheap.
In an interview with The Guardian, director Brad Bird said the movie’s total production cost, including production, is closer to $50 million.
Bird has been releasing information on the project, which is still in the early stages of development, to help investors get a better sense of its overall cost.
Here are the details from the Guardian:”The film’s cost was calculated from a production cost calculation that assumes that we’re using a production method similar to that used in the previous two films, which would allow us to get to a more reasonable budget,” Bird said.
“We also assumed that we can get a similar level of performance to the first two movies with the same amount of time, which we hope we can.”
So the cost of the franchise, to me, is $50,000m.
That’s $2.5bn over four years.
That was our rough estimate.
The real figure was probably closer to 20% of that.
Bird said the cost breakdown was based on “the same principles that we used in The Matrix trilogy and in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask”.”
But I can’t tell you if that’s the right strategy.”
Bird said the cost breakdown was based on “the same principles that we used in The Matrix trilogy and in The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask”.
The film costed $26m, or around $30m per scene, which was about the same as the previous trilogy.
It was released in 2009.
The Matrix Sequels cost $200m to make, but only about $1.5m per movie, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
