The first season of “Lord of the Rings” will cost Amazon a lot of castar. The retail giant will spend around $465 million to film the first season of its upcoming fantasy drama based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s books. [Read here]

They really want to get on the podium of totalitarianism in audiovisual distribution, after they are already in the distribution of goods. Wouldn't be good to leave a few million dollars to take care of your most precarious workers? :ohwell:

Rightfully so. They’re my fave movies of all time, and for many years, they were right up there grossing with Titanic and had the most Oscar wins (Return of the King) Can’t wait for a show ahhh!

I hope it flops.

I mean, this is obviously not true. 
 

it’s about as true as the first season of the Mando costing $100 mil :huntyga:

Every streaming service wants their own GOT so they lie about the costs to produce them. 
 

This series will not cost anywhere close to that number.

I just don't see the point of lying, though.

Let's hope this translates into quality :pray:

EDIT: the setting has potential, though... From what I've read it's about the fall of Númenor and Sauron being a cute fake-ass bitch

Nope it depends if they include Pre production and post prod and marketing costs. Also they bought the rights to produce this series for a good amount of money.

They spent $250M on the rights for LOTR, and that contributes to their cost.

How long is the series? Cuz some series are not cheap and if its multiple seasons it could reach that kind of number

They better not butcher it - there will be a lot of p*ssed fans. I really hope they do it well. A huge budget doesn’t always mean it’ll be good. And I hope they cast as well as the movies did. I really want this to be good.
