  • "Jackson’s fame has climbed over the last two years, with the release of each new stage of the movie and the growth of a Lord of the Rings nostalgia industry, including travel packages to New Zealand, where the movies were shot. The first two films grossed over $600 million in cinemas while the third has passed $310 million after only a few weeks. With videos, DVDs and computer games, the whole phenomenon has already earned $3.5 billion globally and is expected to hit $5 billion. These figures have been used to magnify Jackson’s talent out of all proportion and the critics, for whom size and turnover matter, have dutifully declared The Lord of the Rings trilogy as one of the great works of cinema." http://www.wsws.org/articles/2004/jan2004/tolk-j23.shtml
  • Well, Rottentomatoes.com provides the following statistics: The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring: Box Office: $313,837,577 VHS Rentals: $17,160,000 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers: Box Office: $340,478,898 VHS Rentals: $9,460,000 The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King: Box Office: $376,958,965 VHS Rentals: $3,030,000 Taking those statistics for the film we can add them up and find a total: $1,060,925,440 The question only asks what the films grossed globally, so I won't get into the amount of profit generated from video games, t-shirts and other apparel.
  • I;m pretty sure The Fellowship grossed 800 million. The other two may vary. Probably more.
