The total production cost of The Hobbit Trilogy was $ 745 million. This is reported by The Hollywood Reporter with reference to the financial documents of the New Zealand government.
Thus, the investment in the project turned out to be much higher than previously thought. It is noteworthy that when Peter Jackson announced the shooting of the then-dilogy "The Hobbit" in 2007, it was argued that the cost of each episode would not exceed $ 150 million. Later, the director convinced the management of Warner Bros. Studios, which was the main investor, that he had enough material to create the third part.
The New Zealand government has pledged to provide the creators of The Hobbit with a total of $ 120 million in benefits.
Note that the movieing of the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy was spent three times less, and the box office was about three billion dollars.
The final episode of The Hobbit Trilogy, The Hobbit 3: The Battle of the Five Armies, will be unveiled on December 17, 2014. The movie stars Luke Evans, Benedict Cumberbatch, Lee Pace, Evangeline Lilly, Richard Armitage, Graham McTavish, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Manu Bennett, Martin Freeman and other actors.
