While Frodo and Sam edge closer to Mordor with the help of the shifty Gollum, the divided fellowship makes a stand against Sauron's new ally, Saruman, and his hordes of Isengard.
The shot of Frodo, Sam, and Gollum looking down at the Black Gate mirrors a similar shot in The Wizard of Oz (1939), featuring the Tin Man, the Scarecrow, and the Cowardly Lion. Both sets of heroes find their destination heavily guarded, with new armies arriving. Later in both stories, one of the characters (Dorothy, Frodo) is captured, and in order to move around in the enemy's territory, all the heroes must dress in enemy uniforms.
Eowyn: Lord Aragorn... where is he?
Gimli: He fell.
During the battle with the Warg riders, a Warg and Orc fall across Gimli. Visibly struggling to lift them off, there is no change in effort or position when a second Warg puts its weight on Gimli. This should be an addition of several hundred pounds.
On the extended edition, John Noble, who plays Denethor, has his name typoed as John Nogle.
In the extended edition, the scene where Frodo and Sam are first captured by Faramir uses a different take. In the theatrical version, after giving the order to bind their hands, Faramir turns and walks away from camera. In the extended edition, after his extended dialogue and order to bind the hobbits, he walks towards camera.
