Movie Trivia/Goofs

→ View All
  • On the Extended DVD extras, Peter Jackson explains that the head of Gothmog, the Leader of the Orcs during the Siege of Gondor, was partly derived from the head of Joseph Merrick, also known as the Elephant Man. Also of influence was the alien leader from Peter Jackson's Bad Taste.
  • Movie Goof (errors made by characters, possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): As Frodo enters Shelob's lair with Gollum, Frodo can be seen visibly favoring his right foot, but in the next shot, he is walking normally.
  • Peter Jackson's first two choices for the role of Aragorn were Daniel Day-Lewis and 'Russell Crowe (I)'. Crowe was excited about the prospect of being involved with a major motion picture in New Zealand, but couldn't commit due to scheduling conflicts in America.
  • The movie tied with Ben-Hur and Titanic to win the most Oscars (11) in a single year. It is also the only one of the three to win to have won a Screenplay Oscar.
