The TV series of the Lord of The Rings will cost Amazon at least $ 500 million!
You will probably need someone brave and cunning as Bilbo Baggins to try to steal a lot of treasures in Smaug because, according to recent estimates, the giant e-commerce should put this on tv at least 500 million dollars to produce the first two seasons of the TV series of the Lord of The Rings.
When at the end of last year, Amazon was awarded the rights for the realization of the series paying out well over 250 million dollars, someone had already estimated that the total financial commitment, estimating the costs of production, would have been at around one billion us dollars.
Well, it seems that these estimates have proved to be accurate (although calculated a bit for the excess) so that you begin already to make the first accounts on the sustainability of such production, considering that the entire film trilogy by Peter Jackson) cost less than $ 300 million.
Considering that Amazon is investing about $ 4 billion a year to produce their own original content, we will need to triple the number of the current members of the service, Amazon Prime (the mold that will be needed 3 million new subscribers), to offset the cost of production of the TV series prequel inspired by the universe created by J. R. R. Tolkien.
