250 for 3 (!!!!!) mega epic movies that is 84 Million for one movie. Which is a) not far away from the Conan project and b ) shooting and producing in New Zealand is more expensive than doing so in Bulgaria, especially if you pay for building up your studio and establishing a completely new special effects studio.
I think The Lord of the Rings, and other movies like Braveheart had "believable" looking armor and weapons. This, outfit, and even those people wearing costumes around Momoa, look cheap and fake.
The budgets of The Lord of the Rings and Braveheart were more important than the Conan's. you can't compare the movies. With 250$ million, You will have a ******* great Conan (at least on the screen).
There is no excuse to deliver anything below LOTR level, quality wise (attention to detail) other than the lack of will and talent.
