The final film in Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkein’s The Lord of the Rings came to a conclusion twenty years ago this month. Following the success of the first two films, the question remained whether the third could meet the expectation - and the hype - in the days leading up to its release. Needless to say, the film was a hit on an epic scale, coming in as the top film of 2003 and the first film to cross the billion-dollar mark since Titanic. Aside from financial success, the film was hailed as one of the greatest cinematic achievements of all time, delivering a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy and earning praise on every level of production. At the 76th Academy Awards, the film took home an Oscar in all eleven categories for which it was nominated, including Best Picture. Only one film can wear the crown of greatest fantasy epic ever made - is it The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King?
