Why Did Black Panther Cost $200 Million?
The total cost of producing the Black Panther movie was quoted at $200 million, excluding marketing costs.
A significant part of this budget was spent on generating the spectacular visual effects that have singled out the movie as one of the great Marvel productions.
Producing CGI takes time and costs money.
In most cases, the amount charged for producing CGI in movies is determined by the number of hours spent in rendering the images.
Rendering is the final stage of converting 3D wire frame models into 2D images on a computer.
This is like a finishing process that brings life to the already drawn images when creating animations and visual effects.
Considering the charges for rendering services, and the numerous scenes created in the movie, one would imagine that a bulk of the entire movie budget must have gone into CGI production.
