In fact, the vast majority of films, not counting very small independent releases, do make their money back, in the DVD market if not in theaters. There are very few bombs.

Still, the $500 million figure is high. And surprising, because Raimi is well-known for his ability to get a lot done on a little budget. But Marvel and Sony expect this film to be huge, and it will be huge. I don't know if it can beat Pirates 2 from last year, but I think this one is going to open bigger and gross more than the original Spider-Man.

It's an investment, for sure, but I can't see it not paying off.

from an interview on SHH! with Arad, Ziskin and Curtis (Producer team of SM3)

SHH!: What did it cost?
Curtis: I don't know.
Ziskin: Good answer.

SHH!: Is it true this movie cost $250 million?
Ziskin: I never have said the number of any "Spider-Man" movie ever from the first one, but you're in the ballpark.

original article:

so it's far from $500 million, just the half of it, and so even cheaper than SM2, which was around $280 million.
