This is about the happiest moment for LOTR movie fandom since [In reply to] Can't Post

since Stephen Spielberg said "it's a clean sweep". IMHO this even beats the greenlight news for happy moments!

Ok off to bed now.

Good :) [In reply to] Can't Post

The first part is reasonable, I think - that part really needs clarification to avoid more of these union stunts. To limit that to the film industry is a sensible decision.

And I hope the third part makes up for the second part. That way NZ gains something, even if they are giving in to the financial demands of Warner to a certain extend in the second part. That way all parties can sell it as a success for themselves Smile

Thanks for posting these details so fast!



I do not suffer from LotR obsession - I enjoy every minute of it.

Wonderful news!! [In reply to] Can't Post

I felt really nervous before John Key's press conference. I had a funny feeling he was going to say the movie was going off shore. So when he said the opposite I had a little dance around the room Sly. Now, finally the movie can progress at full speed. It's going to be a fun and exciting couple of years.

But the marketing of NZ will help sell the films as well [In reply to] Can't Post

It's reciprocal. Look at the merchandise and copies of the film, books etc that will sell through visitors to NZ, which will benefit WB as well ascthe country. I spent hundreds when in NZ three years ago, and have continued buying every version of the film as it's released as well.

btw thrilled it's remaining in NZ and it's a fantastic deal for both parties.

I'd be fine with another movie if [In reply to] Can't Post

it was pure Tolkien and absolutely nothing he didn't write. There is after all, Silmarillion, Lost tales and Children of Hurin but I'm guessing they would either split the Hobbit in two and then have the bridge movie or one Hobbit and the bridge movie split up.
