7. Ghostbusters' Chris Hemsworth Dance Cost...$1-2 Million
Much has been written about how much of a mess the shooting of Paul Feig's 2016 Ghostbusters reboot was.
For starters, the film's colossal $144 million budget seemed hugely over the odds for a Ghostbusters movie, and according to Dan Aykroyd, Feig refused to shoot additional scenes suggested during principal photography, leading to expensive re-shoots when they were later required.
But there's one majorly expensive scene that was filmed during the main shoot which ultimately didn't make the cut: a dance sequence where receptionist Kevin (Chris Hemsworth) performs an elaborate boogie in Times Square set to The Bee Gees' "You Should Be Dancing."
With complex choreography involving dozens of cast members and extras, it took two days to shoot (not including rehearsal time) and reportedly cost in the "low seven figures," likely meaning in the $1-2 million range.
Feig cut the scene because it hurt the movie's pacing, and called it "the biggest decision of [his] life." He did, however, re-cut the sequence and include snippets of it in the end credits sequence, as well as including part of the dance on the movie's home video release.
Ultimately, Ghostbusters 2016 grossed a massively disappointing $229.1 million worldwide.
