Gandalf and Aragorn lead the World of Men against Sauron's army to draw his gaze from Frodo and Sam as they approach Mount Doom with the One Ring.
To get enough extras for the Battle at the Black Gate, a few hundred members of the New Zealand army were brought in. They apparently were so enthusiastic during the battle scenes that they kept breaking the wooden swords and spears they were given.
Smeagol, I've got one! I've got a fish, Smeag. Smeagol!
Smeagol: Pull it in. Go on. Go on. Go on. Pull it in.
Right after Éowyn and Merry saying "to battle", there's a scene where a trebuchet is throwing a fiery rock into Minas Tirith. You can clearly see that the rock won't fly for more then a dozen feet or so, thus there's no way it made it over the walls of Minas Tirith like seen in the next shot, unless the trebuchet stood right at them.
The credits are accompanied by preproduction sketches that appear along the left and right sides of the screen. The final sketch, in the center of the screen, is The One Ring.
