The Most Expansive Movies of Last Decade

The 2009 summer movie season ended, with a record-breaking box office. But 2009 will also go down as the year with the most movies that cost $200 million or more. We've compiled the most expensive movies of the past decade. Here's a list of all the movies with production budgets of $170 million and over, for the past ten years.
