The main door of Helm's Deep was built so heavy, and so well, that the real battering ram, that was built to knock down the gates, failed to do so until the door was weakened. Someone had built the door a little bit too well, and Director Peter Jackson can be heard on the Extended Edition DVD commenting that if they had to defend a castle, he would want the WETA workshop guys to build the door.
Three hundred lives of men I have walked this earth and now I have no time.
Just after Sam says "How could the world go back to the way it was when so much bad had happened?" we cut to a shot of Aragorn which is a reversed shot - the scar on his lip is on the wrong side.
Two lines in Maori (wishing all the best to their land and people): He maungärongo ki te whenua He whakaaro pai ki ngä tängata katoa
When Frodo, Sam, Gollum and Faramir arrive at Osgiliath in the Extended Edition, Minas Tirith can be seen in the background. It was removed from the theatrical version to avoid confusion with Helm's Deep.
