All six films from director Peter Jackson's 'The Lord of the Rings'
and 'The Hobbit' trilogies. Set in Middle Earth 60 years before
events in 'The Lord of the Rings', 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected
Journey' (2012) follows the adventures of hobbit Bilbo Baggins
(Martin Freeman), who, at the instigation of the wizard Gandalf
(Ian McKellen), suddenly finds himself co-opted into joining a
company of 13 Dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage)
to help reclaim the dwarves' lost kingdom of the Lonely Mountain
from the clutches of a dragon. After setting out on their quest
from the safety of Bag End, the band of travellers soon find
themselves pitted against a range of strange and fearsome
opponents, in addition to a small, slimy creature known simply as
Gollum (Andy Serkis). In 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'
(2013), while Gandalf heads south on his own, Bilbo, Thorin and the
dwarves enter the treacherous Mirkwood Forest on their way to the
mountain. When they reach Lake-town Bilbo has to perform the role
he was assigned at the start of the quest - to find a secret door
that will lead him to the lair of Smaug the dragon (voice of
Benedict Cumberbatch). In the final instalment, 'The Hobbit: The
Battle of the Five Armies' (2014), Bilbo, Thorin and the other
dwarves have unintentionally released Smaug from the Lonely
Mountain and endangered the residents of Lake-town. Bilbo has to
make a difficult decision when Thorin puts his desire to find the
royal jewel Arkenstone before his loyalty to his friends.
Meanwhile, Gandalf discovers that the evil Sauron has returned,
commanding a horde of Orcs to attack the Lonely Mountain. Bilbo and
his friends must fight for their survival as five armies meet in
battle. In 'The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring'
(2001) Frodo (Elijah Wood) is a hobbit living in the Shire, a
quiet, peaceful part of Middle Earth. When it turns out that his
elderly relative Bilbo (Ian Holm) is harbouring the ultimate Ring
of Power and the evil Nazgul riders of Sauron are coming to find
it, Frodo is entrusted by wizard Gandalf to deliver the Ring out of
the Shire without it falling into their hands. Frodo leaves the
Shire aided by his cousins Merry (Dominic Monaghan), Pippin (Billy
Boyd) and trusty friend Sam Gamgee (Sean Astin), but they soon
realise that the agents of Mordor are everywhere and that their
trip is far from over. Once they reach the Elvish realm of
Rivendell the hobbits form part of the anti-Sauron fellowship,
which includes Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Boromir (Sean Bean),
Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Gimli (John Rhys-Davies) and Gandalf.
Together they must battle across Middle Earth to destroy the Ring
by casting it into Mount Doom, the fiery chasm in the centre of
Mordor. In 'The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers' (2002) the
Fellowship of the Ring has now divided and Sam and Frodo are lost
in the hills of Emyn Muil. They are also being followed by Gollum,
a creature who promises to help them travel to Mordor. Meanwhile
Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli search for the hobbits Merry and Pippin
in the Kingdom of Rohan, which is currently being attacked by
Saruman's orc armies. Gandalf returns as Gandalf the White to
remind Aragorn of his destiny to unite the people of Rohan with
Gondor. Whilst the Fellowship is not travelling together they must
unite against the powerful forces coming from the Two Towers:
Orthanc Tower in Isengard where Saruman has bred a deadly army of
10,000, and Sauron's fortress at Barad-dűr. Finally, in 'The Lord
of the Rings: The Return of the King' (2003), Gandalf manages to
rally Gondor's fallen army with the help of King Theoden of Rohan
(Bernard Hill) for the biggest battle in the history of Middle
Earth. Meanwhile, Aragorn finally faces up to his noble
responsibilities. Although outnumbered, Gandalf's army are
determined to keep Sauron distracted in order to enable Frodo to
complete his quest to destroy the Ring by throwing it into the
fires of Mount Doom.
