The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King - Extended Edition

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 move the broken forces of Gondor to act, Theoden unites the warriors of Rohan to join in the fight. Meanwhile 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 extended version includes 48 minutes of new and extended scenes, new score by Howard Shore and over 350 new digital effects shots.
