9781550228908: The Lord of the Films: The Unofficial Guide to Tolkien's Middle-Earth on the Big Screen

First popularized in Tolkien’s classic and bestselling series, The Lord of The Rings has garnered millions of fans around the world. The stunning film trilogy by Peter Jackson was groundbreaking, beautiful, and, as expected, hugely successful. The Lord of the Films is a unique scene-by-scene guide to all of the Lord of the Rings movies, with lots of games, puzzles, and interviews with the filmmakers tossed in. In this book, each scene in each movie is tackled on four different fronts: a closer look at the plot and the action, a look behind the scenes, a reveal of mistakes that slipped through, and audiences’ reactions. In addition to the famous live-action trilogy, other related films (such as the animated adaptations) are covered as well. As an added bonus, the author reveals details about the prequel films currently in production and due out in theatres in 2011 and 2012, as well as a foreword by Cliff Broadway, a staff member of TheOneRing.net a member of the inner circle of those who worked on the films. After reading this book, fans will feel like they’re watching The Lord of the Rings for the first time all over again!

About the Author:

Review:

"It's a ton of fun, well put together and has a great softback design. I highly recommend." -- Book Legion (added by author)

"I would say that this book is a must for every Ringer. Braun's research is extensive, his interviews with artists and extras are delightful, and his facts are far from repeats." --Megan Hayner, TheOneRing.com (added by author)

"Author J.W. Braun, an eminently qualified aficionado of the movies, offers readers a dragon's lair of information about the creation, production and marketing of the films as well as the cultural zeitgeists surrounding each theatrical release."  —Scene Magazine



"The Lord of the Films is one of those cases where the back cover bumpf is actually true . . . after reading this book, you'll go back and watch the trilogy again with a fresh pair of eyes, as if it's the first time you're watching it."  —TheOneRing.net



"Braun has somehow managed to capture every little additional detail you could ask for from The Lord of the Rings films every step of the way. The book is wonderful as either light reading for fans of the films looking for more LotR content and deeper appreciation, or as a companion guide while the movies play on the television."  —Buzzine
