Here's a gathering thread for all stuff LotR that's interesting or special in one way or another.

I'll start with a trivia collection about all three films:

"... he did not wish to disappoint diehard fans of the book trilogy."
lol, so ten years later he is just like "f*ck it, I'm gonna make my own hobbit movies with Azog and giant worms"?  8-|

Well, according to this unspecified magazine article that is not directly quoted, yes.

You rather he'd added Blackjack and Hooters? :P

Bender showing up at the end of the movie would've been just as believable as some of the crap they threw in there like the troll with no arms or legs

Regarding Helm's Deep, I read that the scene of the arrival of the Elves was the most difficult one to shoot, choreographically speaking.

Also, there are a lot of scenes that were completely deleted and that are thus unedited;
they were shot, for example, some sequences about the Goblins chasing the Fellowship at night, entering Lothlórien and being killed by the Elves.
Or some other footage, in which Elrond and Arwen go to Lothlórien to discuss about the war, and a dialogue between Arwen and Galadriel.


PJ still has many secrets to reveal :)

I thought I'd give my own inner poet a shot. Turns out it wasn't too bad, since you seem to know where I'm coming from xD

Blackjack and Hooters would've made everything in these movies so much more enjoyable... [ugly]

Enough OT from me ;)

I'M MAKING MY OWN LOTR TRILOGY! WITH BLACKJACK AND HOOTERS! :D
and to be fair... something that completely gets ignored most of the time: PJ didn'T want to direct the Hobbit movies... but after the whole crap that delayed production happened del Toro jumped off so PJ HAD to take over

It was at the Survivor Series that the dark path of the Undertaker was born. It seems like an eternity ago that the demons of hell passed judgement on the mortal world and unleashed a creature of the night so powerful that the mention of it's very name sends shivers down to the spines of who oppose him

just a bit of interesting trivia I've heard about the LotR trilogy. Originally, Arwen was supposed to go with the Elvish army to Helm's Deep and fight with Aragorn (I shudder to think of the love triangle we'd have been forced to sit through a great deal of in Return of the King).

Less annoying would have been Sauron's battle with Aragorn at the Black Gate. Quite a departure from the books (but then again, so was the Elvish army at Helm's Deep, the Army of the Dead appearing at Pelennor Fields instead of Gondor's armies and the Evenstar - which is, apparently, a jewel from Aman that Olorin gave to Galadriel who had Celebrimbor forge it into what it is - shatter so easily, and other things), but it would have been interesting to see the battle.

Found this beautiful picture of a young Frodo with the best friend a Hobbit boy could have.

Yes, very good.  :D At some points i thought the next screen is "The End", everytime the story went on till the evil was finally defeated. :o

Danke an Sauron der 5000. fürs Banner :)

Another fun/interesting fact: do you know that initially, for the role of Galadriel, PJ and the other Writers chose Lucy Lawless instead of Cate Blanchett?  :)

Lucy Lawless is a popular New Zealand actress, who is mainly known for having played the part of Xena, the Warrior Princess, in the TV serie of the same name  8-)


Furthermore, the actor who plays the part of Celeborn, Marton Csokas, was present too in the Xena serie, playing the part of a War Lord  [ugly]


I like very much Lucy Lawless and absolutely love Xena, as a part of my own childhood; but, knowing how Lucy Lawless acts and what roles she is very good at, I have to say that I'm glad that they eventually have chosen Cate Blanchett for the part (also because Lucy Lawless got pregnant before the start of the shootings for LOTR)  :P

But I'm sure that we would have had a definitely fiercer and more warrior-type display of the Lady of Light.
We could try to imagine how it would have been like  xD

''In time of ancient Valar, Dark Lords and Kings, an Elf in toil cried out for a Hero.
She was Galadriel, a mighty Noldorin Princess, forged in the heat of the War of the Jewels.
The Silmarils, the Love for Valinor, Morgoth...
Her Courage will change Arda''.
