The Fellowship Of The Ring

THE LORD OF THE RINGS:
THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING
Peter Jackson gave one of the rings used in the movies to both
Elijah Wood and Andy Semis as a gift when the shoot was
finished. They both thought they had the only one
When Bilbo drops the ring before leaving Hobbiton the floor was
magnetic to prevent the ring from bouncing. This was done
to demonstrate the importance and weight of the ring
units
Orlando Bloom did most of his own stunts and broke a rib in the process
Viggo Mortensen also did his own 'stunts. He insisted on using only the real steel
sword, instead of significantly lighter aluminum sword or safer rubber sword
which were manufactured for battle scenes and stunts
Eight of the nine members of the Fellowship got a small tattoo of the word 'nine'
spelled out in Tengwar, which is the Elvish script created by Tolkien. They got them
at a tattoo parlor in New Zealand, to commemorate the experience of the movie
Elijah Wood' s tattoo is on his lower stomach. Sean Astin and Billy Boyd have
the tattoo on their ankles (to commemorate all those hours in the hobbit feet).
Orlando Bloom, has his on his forearm. Ian Mckellen' s and Dominic Monaghan' s
are on their shoulder. Sean Bean, has his tattoo on his right shoulder.
Viggo Mortensen has his tattoo on his left shoulder
When Pippin is being hit with the a
it' s Viggo Mortensen throwing the apple at his head. They had to shoot the
scene 16 times to get it just right, and Billy Boyd says he believes Mortensen
enjoyed himself immensely
While filming, Viggo Mortensen got so into character that during a conversation
Peter Jackson referred to him as Aragorn for over half an hour without him realizing it
wrt l
Hobbiton was made a year before production began to make it look like
it was a natural, place, complete with real vegetable patches. The
greens department regulated the length of the grass by having sheep eat it
In one take of the Ferry scene, Elijah Wood overshot
his jump and ended up in the river instead of on the Ferry
Viggo chipped a tooth while filming a fight sequence. He wanted Peter
Jackson to superglue it back on so he could finish his scene, but the
director took him to the dentist on his lunch break, had it patched up
and returned to the set that afternoon
When the trailer was released on the Internet on 7 April 2001
it was downloaded 1. 6 million times in the first 24 hours

Also fun fact just before being hired as Legolas, Orlando bloom  fell 3 floors through a friends apartment and broke his back. Doctors were pretty sure he would never walk again but 12 days after an operation, he walked out of the hospital on crutches.

"through a friend's apartment"
Was he standing in the attic when the floor just decided to disappear?

I have no idea, but I've seen the interview where Orlando says it and he didn't specify either i think. I'm guessing weak floor or from a window but who knows?    
 not his fan site that's for 			******		 sure

In all fairness, it would probably be easier to act out realistic swordsmanship with a sword of realistic weight, provided your arm didn't get tired.   
Really, though, I just wanted to post this gif.

This one isn't quite as long. I remember seeing another LOTR one that was about double the length of the Truth or Dare one. It had captions that made it seem like they were an MMORPG.

Gimli, what's the deal with not getting a tattoo?
#15 to #8 - spoileralerts (05/12/2014) [-]
"You think I'm going to be tattooed by some drunken Maori with a dirty needle? Think again. If I had a bloody tattoo for every film I'd done, I'd be a walking billboard."
-John Rhys Davies

Also, it should be noted that John sent his stunt double to get tattooed, so technically one of the Gimli's got the tattoo.

If you watch the commentaries you see how he is arrogant as **** .

John Rhys Davies is a badass nonetheless  if you consider him not getting a tattoo nonbadass  When they were filming his fight scenes he would just tell the big mean 			*************		 who played the Orcs: "How many are coming at me? 6? Ok. First I'll hit you, then you, then you!" and then continue to smack the 			****		 out of anyone coming at him with an orc costume.

Yes, hitting stuntmen that don't hit back is incredibly bad ass.

another fun fact. when Aragon kicks the orcs helmet in the 2nd movie, Viggo Mortensen broke his toe, thus the very visceral scream we hear.
User avatar #147 to #7 - whenuleastxpect ONLINE (05/13/2014) [-]
Actually he broke two toes...
User avatar #9 to #7 - psychadelicace ONLINE (05/12/2014) [-]
I didn't mention that because im sure most people already know
#121 to #9 - whyamiloggedin (05/13/2014) [-]
I thought you didn't include it because that happened during the filming of the second movie? By the way aren't you going to make compilations for The Two Towers and The Return of the King?
User avatar #122 to #121 - psychadelicace ONLINE (05/13/2014) [-]
I sure am and if they do well enough i'll do all three hobbit films
#133 to #122 - anon (05/13/2014) [-]
I think most people would prefer you just doing characters. Just a suggestion though, I'll be happy to read it either way
User avatar #134 to #133 - psychadelicace ONLINE (05/13/2014) [-]
i'll ask who should be done in the next post?

All of these facts can be found in the behind the scenes.

 There are probably videos with better quality, but I'm to lazy to look it up.
