Production and Financial Info

 Published in

This page contains financial information as I encounter it within the trade or popular press.

According to The New York Times, 2010 movie Despicable Me cost $70M to produce by Illumination Entertainment. Despicable Me was released by Universal. It was actually created by Mac Guff Ligne.

The same article said that efforts such as Toy Story 3 and Shrek 4 cost twice as much to create.
