  Rings actors 'row' for more cash
Updated 25 November 2003, 19.10
Orlando Bloom was an unknown before the films
Eighteen actors in the Lord of the Rings films have reportedly had big arguments over pay with New Line Cinema, who made the movies.

The actors, who haven't been named, thought that they should have got a bigger cash bonus for doing promotional work like going to premieres.

New Line finally agreed to put together a fund to share amongst the actors.

Many of the stars, like Orlando Bloom, were unknown before Rings, but the films have launched their careers.

The first two Rings films made well over 500m each, and the whole trilogy only cost 375m.

The third and final Rings film, Return of the King, comes out in December.

US magazine Newsweek reported that the 18 actors threatened not to go to any upcoming premieres or do anything else to promote the film.
