‘The Hobbit’ Films Have Cost $745 Million To Make So Far
  |  @   |  

It isn’t entirely unusual to see a the price tag for a blockbuster tentpole films to have an eight or even nine-figure budget. But when the franchise is as large as The Hobbit trilogy, you’ll probably be doing more than just burning a hole in your wallet. Trying to figure out the cost of said films wouldn’t be easy, considering you have to pay the talent, the production crew, the cameramen, the visual effects artists, the writers, the director, cinematographers, and then there is hauling the equipment, traveling, reshoots, and much more. But when you have a successful franchise like The Hobbit, you generally would have even more money to work with to make a sequel more exciting.

We are now learning how much you would need to produce a film of that magnitude, and it is a pretty big number. It has cost WB approximately $745 million to make The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. And since the film is a trilogy we can expect that number to only skyrocket. But it is okay considering that the two Hobbit films combined grossed nearly $2 billion worldwide.

‘Lord Of The Rings’ Star Billy Boyd To Sing Final ‘Hobbit’ Movie’s End Credits Song
  |  @   |  

There’s a wealth of memorable moments to be found within Peter Jackson’s massive Lord of the Rings trilogy. One of these moments comes in the third and final movie, The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, when hobbit Pippin (Billy Boyd) is ordered to sing a song for the Steward of Gondor, Denethor (John Noble), to whom he volunteered his service. As Pippin sings his sad song, titled “The Edge of Night,” Denethor feasts away carelessly while his son Faramir (David Wenham) and his soldiers, who were sent into an impossible battle by the Steward, are met with waves of orcish arrows.

If you too are fond of this scene and Pippin’s song, depressing as it is, there’s some good news to be had today. It’s been announced that Billy Boyd will be semi-returning to Middle-earth by recording the end credits song for the third and final movie in The Hobbit trilogy, titled The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
