Its budget according to google said it was 200 million. Worldwide in the box office it made over 400 million but I keep finding articles that say it may break even or even be a loss? How is that possible when it doubled its budget? Is it taxes not figured in? Was it a success? I loved the film. I dont want to see it be a golden compass and end without a sequel.

The production budget for the film was about $200 million, but that only covers the costs of actually making the movie. That does not include other costs related to the movie, such as advertising budgets and interest paid to whoever funded the film.
