The third and final installment in Peter Jackson's epic cinematic retelling of J.R.R. Tolkien's Lord of the Rings novels, The Return of the King takes us deep into a Middle Earth under siege. Hobbits Frodo and Sam inch closer to Mordor and to their objective: the heart of Mount Doom, where they must cast the One Ring back into the fiery depths. Meanwhile, the world of men, led by Aragorn fight against a seemingly endless army of orcs, beasts, and canonfire, to keep Minas Tirith — aka ''The White City' and the last stronghold of men — alive and free from evil Sauron's grip. Frodo's heart-stopping encounter with Shelob the spider, and the sweeping, tragic portrayal of the battle of Minas Tirith are only two of the many highlights in director Jackson's "meticulous and prodigious vision."
