Lord Of The Rings


At the end of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, following the death of Boromir (Sean Bean) and the plunge into the pit at Khazad-d?m by Gandalf The Grey (Sir Ian McKellen), The Fellowship disbanded. Though splintered into three groups, the members of the original nine-member assemblage are no less determined to fulfil Frodo's heroic quest. . .
