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."
