I am hugely curious about this film . On their website they have a graph of the budget they used which was 7.5 million euros, big name actors, and aimed at a worldwide theatrical release in 2012. It really is low when you compare it to some films with comparable effects . Read the Press Book info that I copied below the trailer clip and you will see what I mean.
