Filming was progressing on The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) in the location of Queenstown when suddenly the town was hit with massive floods, and exterior filming had to be suspended. The only available indoor facility that could be used for a studio set was the squash court in a local hotel. Thus, the next day, the next scene to be filmed was the intense moment from this movie when an obsessed Frodo sides with Gollum and sends Sam on his way. Elijah Wood and Sean Astin balked at having to do such a pivotal scene without preparation (Andy Serkis had not been cast at this point, so someone from the crew filled in for Gollum) but filming went ahead as planned. Astin's scenes were all successfully completed. The next day, however, the sun came out and the floods abated, so exterior filming could resume. The intent was always to return to the squash court (where the set remained standing) to do Elijah Wood's scenes, but for the next five weeks, there was no rain to interrupt exterior filming. At the end of that period, the crew had moved to a new location. Elijah Wood finally got to do his side of the scene one year later in the same location; the squash players of Queenstown had been without a court that whole time, as the set had remained in place on the court the entire time.

When Gollum throws the Lembas bread over the cliff, we see it breaking apart, the wind blowing the parts away. However, when Sam finds the bread again, the pieces are all rather neatly assembled at the foot of the cliff. See more »

I've just re-watched The Lord of the Rings trilogy for the 1000th time tonight... nearly 15 years since the Fellowship of the Rings was released... I still haven't seen a movie that's better, nor close, to any of these three films. The casting is perfection as well as the incredible acting by everyone in the movie. I can still watch these movies back to back and not get bored. They are a light to this world and wouldn't be the same without them.
I miss the good old LOTR's days. The best movies ever created. The Return of the King was the best way to end a thrilling journey through middle earth!
