In the third and final film of the The Lord of the Rings trilogy, the heroes of Middle Earth make one last stand against evil. Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen) reclaims his throne and birthright with the help of Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) and the resurrected Gandalf (Ian McKellen), but he'll need a much larger army to stop dark forces from jeopardizing everything he's sworn to protect. Meanwhile, Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) separate for the first time as the final battle looms. In the twisted cliffs of Mordor, Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) finally reach the one place where the Ring can be destroyed, but the price may be too high for a pair of humble hobbits to pay. With love, blood and sacrifice, The Return of the King ends one of the world's most famous franchises with a sweeping finish.
