Continuity mistake: As Faramir holds the Horn of Gondor, the rope is attached to metal loops on the smaller half of the horn - without the mouthpiece. However, in FotR, when Boromir is hit with the third arrow and the Horn of Gondor is cloven in two, the rope is attached to the metal loops on the half with the long mouthpiece. (There are only two metal loops and they are permanently affixed.) (00:31:50)
Frodo and Sam capture Gollum and have him take them to Mordor. They are captured by Faramir, but he lets them go. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli go to Fangorn Forest in pursuit of Merry and Pippin and find Gandalf, who has been reborn. At the Battle of Helm's Deep, all looks lost until Gandalf and the Riders of Rohan charge from nowhere into the Uruk-hai and kill them. Merry and Pippin are taken care of by Treebeard the Ent. The Ents decide to attack Saruman for killing trees. They wash away all his work and renders him helpless. Arwen decides there is no reason for her to stay in Middle-earth, so she begins to leave.
Trivia: During post-production, one of the effects technicians had to transport the first effects shots to a special location, since their computer could not send them all the way to Peter Jackson. After storing them in his iPod, he walked out into the street and was targeted by two thugs. After some serious sprinting, he managed to reach a hotel and save WETA's visual effects from falling into criminal hands.
Question: Maybe I missed something, but why didn't Gandalf notice that Sam was not there? He acts surprised when Aragorn says that Frodo didn't go to Mordor alone, Sam went with him. Yet, he has already seen Merry and Pippin, and Legolas, Gimli and Aragorn are with him, and he knows that Frodo went on alone, so where does he think Sam is? Please excuse me if I missed something.
