How much they spent: $5 million
How much they made: $9.7 million
Starring Sam Rockwell, Kevin Spacy, and Dominique McElligott, Moon is about a fictional astronaut named Sam Bell who works alongside an AI computer named “Gerty” to find and bring back a resource from space that can help diminish the energy crisis on earth.
The movie goes into astrophysical detail with the engines of the vehicles not being heard on the moon because in real life there would be no sound on the moon. The movie cost exactly 5 million to make, and brought back almost 11 million back to earth with it!
