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 battle at Helm's Deep was edited down from twenty hours of footage, shot over a three month period with the rain machine battering down on the cast.
You must understand, young Hobbit, it takes a long time to say anything in Old Entish. And we never say anything unless it is worth taking a long time to say.
When the men of Rohan are in Helm's Deep preparing for war against the orcs of Isengard, we see Aragorn calls a young boy over to see his sword. After which telling him, "this is a good sword", he brings the sword closer in to his body. But instead of the sword appearing in front of him, it appears behind him.
Just like the previous "Lord of the Rings" movie, there are no opening credits after the title has been shown.
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.
