1. The Gray Man (Release Date Unconfirmed)

If you haven’t been living under a rock, then chances are you have already heard about this film that is to release on Netflix (probably next year).

It will feature Chris Evans and Ryan Gosling as the leads and is going to be the most expensive movie ever to release on the platform with a massive budget of over $200 million.

2. Red Notice (Release Date Unconfirmed)

However, due to the rise of the COVID-19, it got delayed indefinitely, much like Nolan’s Tenet. However, this star-studded film is one of the most expensive projects to come to Netflix.

3. The Irishman (2019)

Directed by the legend, Martin Scorcese, “The Irishman” was one of the most anticipated films of last year. The film, starred by iconic actors like Robert De Niro and Al Pacino came to the digital platform instead of the big screens. However, this does not mean that this Oscar-nominated film did not have a big budget. According to reports, the producers had to expand their budget to almost $160 million just to make De Niro and Pacino look younger than ever.

4. 6 Underground (2019)

Directed by the action-focused director, Michael Bay, this Ryan Reynolds starred film came to Netflix in late 2019. Now, despite low ratings from the critics (IMDb – 6.1; Rotten Tomatoes – 36%) the movie became one of the most-watched movies on the platform garnering around 83 million views. Apart from one of the most popular movies on Netflix, it is also one of the most-expensive projects with a reported budget of $150 million.

6. Bright (2017)

Released back in late 2017, “Bright” was one of the most hyped movies at the time. The Will Smith starrer sci-fi/fantasy went on to become a major hit on the platform, despite insanely low critic ratings. This was probably because of the visual elements of the film that attracted most of the audience. And that is also a reason for the film’s huge budget of $90 million that makes it one of the most-expensive movies on Netflix.
