"Once in a lifetime." The phrase comes up over and over from the people who worked on Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings". The film's seventeen Oscars, record-setting earnings, huge fan base, and hundreds of ancillary products attest to its importance and to the fact that "Rings" is far more than a film. Its makers seized a crucial moment in Hollywood - the special effects digital revolution, plus the rise of "infotainment" and the Internet - to satisfy the trilogy's fans while fostering a huge new international audience.The resulting franchise of franchises has earned billions of dollars to date with no end in sight. Kristin Thompson interviewed seventy-six people to examine the movie's scripting and design and the new technologies deployed to produce the films, video games, and DVDs. She demonstrates the impact "Rings" had on the companies that made it, on the fantasy genre, on New Zealand, and on independent cinema. In fast-paced, compulsively readable prose, she affirms Jackson's "Rings" as one the most important films ever made.

“Where 'The Lord of the Rings' Films Led, Others...”

The story that this book tells is not about ‘The Lord of the Rings’ film trilogy (hereafter ‘TLOTR’) itself, but rather it is used as an example – and in some ways the originator – of the dramatic changes in cultural... More
