Overview

A unique scene-by-scene breakdown of all of the Lord of the Rings movies, this guide provides in-depth analysis of the live-action trilogy and other related films, alongside games, puzzles, and interviews with the filmmakers. Each scene is explored in four different ways: a closer look at the plot and the action, a look behind the scenes, a reveal of mistakes that slipped through, and audience reactions. In addition to covering the stunning Peter Jackson trilogy and other adaptions (including the animated adaptations), details are also revealed about the prequel films currently in production, making this an essential volume for any Lord of the Rings fan.

Reviews

"Author J.W. Braun, an eminently qualified aficionado of the movies, offers readers a dragon`s lair of information about the creation, production and marketing of the films as well as the cultural zeitgeists surrounding each theatrical release."  ?Scene Magazine

"Braun has somehow managed to capture every little additional detail you could ask for from The Lord of the Rings films every step of the way. The book is wonderful as either light reading for fans of the films looking for more LotR content and deeper appreciation, or as a companion guide while the movies play on the television."  ?Buzzine

"The Lord of the Films is one of those cases where the back cover bumpf is actually true...after reading this book, you`ll go back and watch the trilogy again with a fresh pair of eyes, as if it`s the first time you`re watching it."  ?TheOneRing
