In the third and final instalment of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the ultimate battle for Middle Earth continues as the war between the forces of good and evil rages on in the Pelennor Fields, Minas Tirith and the Black Gates as Sauron wages his last war against Middle-Earth.

Will the forces of good succeed in fending off Sauron's attack until Frodo reaches Mount Doom, where the ring can be destroyed? Is the destruction of the One Ring even going to turn out to be possible?
