Viggo Mortensen broke a tooth during the shoot. He immediately wanted to continue filming and requested super glue to reattach the broken tooth, so he could use the pain for his character.

In the extended edition, in the stable at Edoras, Aragorn tells the stable hands to set the horse Brego free. When the horse Brego comes to Aragorn at the riverbank, he is wearing a halter and rope. A good horseman would never leave a halter on a horse when he is loosed into the wild, as it could get hung up on a branch or other obstacle and cause the horse injury. Likewise they would not leave a lead rope dangling off a halter even if turning the horse into a pasture. The lead is so long that it drags between the horse's legs; this would be a hazard.
Just like the previous "Lord of the Rings" movie, there are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
In the US theatrical and DVD releases (both versions), the New Line Cinema logo at the beginning says "An AOL Time Warner Company" underneath it. For the US Blu Ray release (both versions), the logo has been changed to simply say "A TimeWarner Company" underneath it.
