500 million dollars: that amount pumps on Amazon, according to Reuters, in the tv series of ‘Lord of the Rings’, nearly double that of the 281 million dollars that the original film trilogy took.
The popular film trilogy, that between 2001 and 2003 in the halls appeared, it had 281 million dollars, while the more recent ‘Hobbit’trilogy has a budget of 623 million dollars”. But e-commerce business Amazon wants to apparently now the means out to the tv-series, based on the fantasyboeken of the English author and professor J. R. R. Tolkien, and a new success.
The company offered 200 million for the film rights, the production and marketing costs could be up to $ 500 million or more for two seasons. That is more than the hugely popular ‘Game of Thrones’, that’s per delivery so a $ 15 million cost.
With that monsterbudget want Amazon to compete with other streamingplatformen, such as Netflix.
