What is a black movie? That’s the question you might be asking yourself at this moment.

And it’s good one.

It’s a question we asked ourselves when we decided to come up with this list. And it’s not an easy answer.

Is a black movie one that only speaks to an black audience? Or maybe a black movie is one that tells a story about black folks? Or is a black movies that features mostly black actor and actress?

At the end we decided to simplify it: for this post, we’re defining a black movie as one where all the main stars are played by black folks. So, for example, even though Training Day has many black actors and actress and is telling a story based in a prominently black neighborhood, Ethan Hawke is the second star. So we aren’t counting it.

We originally thought about this because Think Like a Man Too comes out today. It is a black movie, but it’s also one of the biggest movies of the year. And it has a budget of $20 million, which is paltry for a major movie, but pretty sizable for a black movie.

Because, we were curious, we did some research and came up with the most expensive black movies of all time.
