Lord of the Rings All Day Marathon

Home > Sydney > Cinema
Considered to be one of the biggest and most ambitious movie projects ever undertaken, the entire project took eight years, with the filming for all three films done simultaneously and entirely in New Zealand.

The trilogy was a great financial success, with the films collectively being among the highest-grossing film series of all time. The films were critically acclaimed and heavily awarded, winning 17 out of 30 Academy Awards nominated in total. The final film in the trilogy, The Return of the King, won all 11 of the Academy Awards for which it was nominated, tying it with Ben-Hur and Titanic for most Academy Awards received for a film.

The trilogy appears in many “Top 10” film lists, such as Time Magazine’s All-Time 100 Movies, and in 2007 USA Today named the trilogy as the most important films of the past 25 years.
