Thanks to an over-the-top script and delays that caused shooting to run months longer than anticipated, Sony Studios will reportedly spend 500 million dollars to bring "Spider-Man 3" to the screen.  Radar Online says:

As production dragged on into late summer—it had been scheduled to conclude in June—stories about the project's ballooning budget started popping up all over town. But in the end, even the most hyperbolic of observers may have underestimated the final tab. Industry insiders claim that Sony spent $350 million or more on production alone. With marketing and promotion factored in, the total price tag will approach half a billion dollars—positioning Spider-Man 3 as the most expensive movie of all time. (Cleopatra, the 1963 epic that has long held the title of priciest picture, had an inflation-adjusted budget of $290 million.)

Well no shit it cost half a billion dollars, they had to make Kirsten Dunst look somewhat human.  That takes tons of CGI and makeup and alcohol and magic.  They probably realized about half-way through that nothing they did to her was gonna work so they added a dinosaur with sunglasses on a skateboard in the background so the audience would look at something else.  That cant be cheap.
