Trivia

In the movie, Lord Elrond dispatches a squadron of Elves to Helm's Deep, to assist the Rohan soldiers. This doesn't happen in the book, since the Elves are occupied with defending their own homes from attacks by Sauron's forces at the same time. However, the decision was made to include Elves in this movie, to show their sacrifices, and avoid the suggestion that the Elves leave all the fighting in the movies to humans.


Quotes

Treebeard: Saruman! A wizard should know better!
Treebeard: There is no curse in Elvish, Entish, or the tongues of men for this treachery.
Pippin: Look, the trees! They're moving!
Merry: Where are they going?
Treebeard: They have business with the Orcs. My business is with Isengard tonight, with ...


Goofs

At times the character Gimli is as tall as Aragorn's shoulders. At other times, he is much shorter. The same error can be seen in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001) when Gandalf and Bilbo embrace.


Crazy Credits

One section of credits is for the "Hammerhands" (presumably for carpenters). This is a reference to the name of the "historical" founder of Helm's Deep, Helm Hammerhand. Also, apprentice builders are known as "hammerhands" in New Zealand.


Alternate Versions

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.

Can Ben Barnes Fix Thanos?

Ben Barnes' character in "The Punisher" sees a therapist, so obviously he's perfectly qualified to give his fellow villains Magneto, Mystique, and Thanos some much-needed therapy.
