I am HIGHLY skeptical of those budgets (I doubt Skyfall and QoS cost the same amount. Skyfall probably cost more).
Movie budgets for huge tentpole releases are only rumors and well educated guesses. Just because it is on the internet, does not mean it is true. Studios very rarely admit what a movie's actual budget was (and if they do, they are most likely lowballing to make them look more successful).
During the Sony leak, I remember reading somewhere that some of the emails showed Spectre's budget was skyrocketing towards $300 million.

It looks like both big budget films this year with Asian themes (The Wall and Ghost in the Shell) have really tanked, earning back only a fraction of their production budget.
Logan has made $589 million worldwide in only one month, and will probably surpass X-Men: Days of Future Past which made $748 million three years ago. Hugh Jackman's plan to retire the character after 17 years will probably have to be rethought.
Logan ,Get Out,Fifty Shades Darker, and John Wick: Chapter Two are making this year the best for R-rated films since 2000.
