Since 2017, when we learned that Amazon intends to build a series of Lord of the rings, We can imagine this is a big deal. It doesn’t make much difference to the story he would adapt (quickly confirmed that he would catch a glimpse of Middle-earth, Hobbit ÿ Lord of the rings), and the company’s desire to preserve the legacy. Tolkien (JRR Tolkien).In the same year, it turns out that Amazon has $250 million Only when obtaining the rights to his work. After a period of time, after filming has stopped sharply due to COVID-19, we can visit more or fewer official characters.
They are shameful.Such as collecting thing, The budget Lord of the rings Now, its value is about 500 million U.S. dollars.What honor can we give thing? Well, a lot of things are going on: this is a New Zealand-based media that hosted the filming of Peter Jackson’s adaptation of the film, and it is the same as Amazon’s work.The publication specifically mentions 450 million, which must be added with subsidies issued by the country’s government. 150.As a result, the total budget will be 650: more than $450 million (and 387 million euros). An absolute barrabasada plans to stay at a hotel for $51,000, rent a car at night 76,000, and 29,000 in caravans and trucks.
Stuart NashThe Minister of Economic Development of New Zealand believes that Lord of the rings This will be a big deal for the country’s finances. “This is the greatest TV series of all time”, He promised. “What I can say is that Amazon will spend $650 million in a season. This is great, it really is… the deal with Amazon will create local jobs and create jobs for our business. It’s It will set off a new wave of international tourism and promotional activities for the country.” In fact, we have witnessed an amazing dance of numbers, but to understand the meaning of these numbers, it is enough to consider two issues: One is that when they talked about the $500 million budget in 2018, they talked about two season.
However, the reviewed budget was reduced to one season (the plan can be extended to four or even more than one season) get rid of). The other basic issue is everything related to comparison.If we conflict the estimated budget with the budget of a similar series, and the cost is game of Thrones, We found that HBO’s novels had made headlines last season, costing $90 million, and each episode was $15. Lord of the rings It far surpasses it, but it also surpasses Peter Jackson Destined for theater: the original trilogy only cost 280 million, Ok Hobbit Keep the unbeaten habit 623.
Bottom line: Yes, this is a huge waste.Amazon seems to be right Lord of the ringsAlthough it must be clarified that the first season will pay for this, the fact does not mean that the same thing will happen in the future of the same series. In the final analysis, the 250 million euro copyright fee will not have to be copied, and the cost of producing the design (in terms of scenery or clothing) is more or less fixed, but it depends on the specific addition. Well, this $500 million can be seen as an ambitious investment in the future: Of course, this eagerly depends on the success of the chapter after entering the Amazon catalog.
Developed by JD Payne ÿ Patrick McKay (And by JA Bayona In the first two chapters), Lord of the rings Thousands of years of history Hobbit And the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy tells a story that has yet to be determined.In the cast, we found most of the unknown faces, such as Robert Aramayao, Owain Arthur, Ismael Cruz Córdova Ø Ema Horvath, plus one Morfydd Clark What we encountered Sacred hair And we knew she would play Galadriel. Amazon has not yet announced a release date. In addition to the revenue from production, it seems that they can achieve preemptive expectations in New Zealand: expectations indicate that by 2024, the project will bring $500 million in benefits to the New Zealand economy.
