The Fellowship's journey is coming to an end. Sauron's forces have attacked Gondor's capital of Minas Tirith in his final siege against mankind. Watched over by a fading steward, the once great kingdom has never been in more desperate need of its king. But will Aragorn find the strength to become what he was born to be and rise to meet his destiny? As Gandalf desperately tries to persuade the broken forces of Gondor to act, Theoden unites the warriors of Rohan to join in the fight. Even in their courage and passionate loyalty, the forces of men with Eowyn and Merry hidden among them are no match against the swarming legions of enemies raining down on the kingdom. With each victory comes great sacrifice. Despite their great losses, The Fellowship charges forward in the greatest battle of their lifetime, united in their singular goal to give Frodo a chance to complete his quest. Travelling across treacherous enemy lands, Frodo must rely increasingly on Sam and Gollum as the Ring continues to test his allegiance and, ultimately, his soul. This is the third and final installment of the most critically acclaimed and notable fantasy film of all time.

"This is a movie that, purely and simply, has visions and excitement to blow us away once again."
