LOTR Movies: $675 million!!!
9/22/00, 5:26 pm EST - Calisuri
The Lord Of The Rings movie trilogy will cost $675 million, about $315 million more than previously reported, according to American magazine Vanity Fair.
The budget blowout, if correct, would make the Rings trilogy the second most expensive movie production ever, after the three new Star Wars films which cost about $736 million....[more]
Note by Corvar: The $675m is likely in NZ dollars. Who knows what currency the Star Wars numbers are in. But in general, always be leary of an article in which two countries are involved and what currency they are talking about is excluded.
And I thought Gollum was smart!
