I don't really follow the film lore, but I was under the impression (so far) that Jackson considered Tauriel a not-Sindarin Silvan elf.
Joking aside, why are we that certain that the budget of TH was indeed 745 millions? Just because the production company claimed so?"Why does it hurt so much?" "Because it wasn't in the books."
I suddenly have this wild theory why the budget for LoTR was $281 million, but for TH $745 million:
This actually happened every time the departed from the book, it hurt and they had to cry.
The differences in budgets were all used up for aspirin and hankies!
Not sure I've heard about the negative wage impact. Changing labor laws rings a very dim bell.Joking aside, why are we that certain that the budget of TH was indeed 745 millions? Just because the production company claimed so?
I don't know if any of you have ever heard that the production of LoTR and TH in N. Zealand impacted negatively the wages of those who work in the N. Zealandish film industry ( actors, technicians and extras). The production company was able to modify even the N. Zealandish labour laws.
So the 745 millions might not be that accurate number. They production companies can claim whatever they like but no one can actually check their logistics...
