The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King
Released Dec 17, 2003
In the conclusion of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic masterpiece, The Lord of the Rings, armies mass for a final battle that will decide the fate of the world, one member of the Fellowship of the Ring is revealed as the noble heir to the throne of the Kings of Men. Yet, the sole hope for triumph over evil lies with a brave hobbit, Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood - "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind"), who, accompanied only by his loyal friend Sam and the hideous, wretched Gollum, ventures deep into the very dark heart of Mordor on his seemingly impossible quest to destroy the Ring of Power. Also starring Academy Award-nominee Viggo Mortensen ("A History of Violence"), Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Ian McKellan ("X-Men"), Orlando Bloom ("The Pirates of the Caribbean” trilogy), Liv Tyler ("The Strangers") and Academy Award and Golden Globe-winner Cate Blanchett ("Elizabeth"). Winner of 11 Academy Awards including Best Picture and Best Director!
