Winner of 11 Academy Awards including "Best Picture" and "Best Director," The Lord of the Rings trilogy came to a stunning conclusion with the theatrical release of The Return of the King.

The final battle for Middle-earth begins as Frodo and Sam, led by Gollum, continue their dangerous mission toward the fires of Mount Doom in order to destroy the One Ring. Aragorn struggles to fulfill his legacy as he leads his outnumbered followers against the growing power of the Dark Lord Sauron, so that the Ring-bearer Frodo may complete his quest.

Based on J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure of good versus evil, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is the ultimate achievement by director Peter Jackson in his acclaimed film trilogy.
