The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring accomplished a feat that few films have ever been able to do: it made a believer out of me. When the movie was first released in December 2001 it proved that epic fantasy features that were not set in a galaxy far, far away could still break box office records. I didn’t see the movie during its blockbuster theatrical run because….I really thought it was going to be terrible. There, I confess. It took me until Fellowship‘s first DVD release in August 2002 to realize that my harsh pre-judging of the movie, mostly based on the simmering anger I felt towards the past few years of bloated Hollywood FX spectacles that offered fantastic visuals but little in the way of memorable stories and characters, was in haste and a huge mistake.

I remember the sweltering summer evening when I rented a copy of Fellowship from my local now-defunct Hollywood Video on the way home from work. Knowing in advance that it was a three-hour flick my initial plan was to watch the first half at the least before hitting the sack so I could get up the next morning for an early shift at the Tower Records I had been working at back then for more than three years. Twenty minutes following the start of my first viewing of Fellowship of the Ring and I was hooked; there would be no “To Be Continued” that night. Even though I risked getting barely enough sleep to pass for a member of the living the next day I watched the movie until its very end, and by the time Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee walked off into the sunset to more adventures I was a full-fledged Rings fan.

Watch Now: Hobbits Reunite For 10th Anniversary of ‘Lord of the Rings’ Trilogy

Lord of the Rings

This year marks the tenth anniversary since The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring took the global box office by storm (one month after the first Harry Potter movie debuted). To celebrate that milestone, the British film magazine Empire is dedicating a chunk of its December issue to paying tribute to the LOTR movies in typical Empire style.

The issue will spotlight a reunion of the four actors who played the brave hobbits of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s fantasy epic – Elijah Wood (Frodo Baggins), Sean Astin (Samwise Gamgee), Dominic Monaghan (Merry), and Billy Boyd (Pippin). To promote the issue, Empire has put together a short video preview of the hobbit reunion which you can watch here below, as well as an image from the reunion.

Sean Bean scored a lifelong geek following with his role as Boromir in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which excitedly followed him in bringing his fantasy skills to the excellent HBO series, Game of Thrones.

Diehard fans of the book from which the first season was based—part of George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series—and newcomers alike have praised Bean for his work bringing Lord Eddard Stark to life, and it’s likely that anytime he finds himself in some sort of sword-wielding role (you can also check out Black Death on Netflix) we geeks will watch with happy eyes.

Now Bean is carrying over his battle-tested warrior ways into real life.

Lord of the Rings blu-ray trilogy set

Earlier this month, Warner Home Video revealed the details for The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy Extended Edition Blu-ray Edition box set. At that time, no release date was given, only that it’s be out some time in 2011 or 2012, and that the set was now available for pre-order.

Now, WB has announced that this 15-disc Blu-ray set will be released on June 28, 2011.

When this set was originally announced, it was titled The Lord of the Rings: The Motion Picture Trilogy Limited Extended Edition Blu-ray Edition, and the box art reflected that name. The newly released box art (see above) shows that the word “limited” has been dropped and “The Motion Picture” added to it. Either way, it’s still a mouthful, but it’s worth it! (in my opinion).
