fuckyeahbehindthescenes:

In the scene where Frodo is leaving everyone behind at Emyn Muil to take up the quest on his own, divers went into the water to make sure it would be free of any sharp objects or debris for Sean Astin to run into when Sam goes chasing after him. Although they gave the OK, Sean ended up stepping on a piece of glass that completely pierced his foot from top to bottom, requiring a helicopter to transport him to the nearest hospital and several stitches.

Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring (2001)

no okay everyone shut up i’m going to tell you about my crazy ass hobbit/lotr dream

last night i had a dream there was this middle earth game show/dodgeball tournament or some shit and basically we’ve got maybe ten representatives from each race in a fucking gymnasium

naturally i’m with the dwarves idfk i think i was fili or kili or something

bUT ANYWAY THE CHALLENGE IS TO OPEN THE HIDDEN DOOR TO EREBOR which is just fucking sitting there in the middle of the gym like they cut the door out and there it is????

so naturally we, the dwarves, go wild all fuCK YEAH IT’S A DWARF DOOR WE GOT THIS YO and we try to decide which dwarf will represent us and try to open the door

it comes down to gimli and thorin don’t ask why they’re both there i’m just as confused

and i go “well, which one of you is better at opening doors” because i’m a logical dwarf apparently i’m probably fili and gimli goes “well last week i was beaten up by the elves because i couldn’t get through a door fast enough, so not me”

and we basically flip our shit fucking elves it was probably just legolas/gimli fun time that got out of hand but fuckIN ELVES 

so thorin’s elected anD WE’RE CHEERING WE’RE SINGING WITH OUR BASS NOTES HE STANDS UP

I SEE THRANDUIL ACROSS THE GYM, LOOKING AT US. HE’S BEEN ELECTED AS WELL. SHIT’S GONNA HAPPEN

FOR A SPLIT SECOND I THINK ”hey maybe we should’ve tried to get that hobbit fellow on our team he’d be good at opening doors” bUT IT’S TOO LATE THORIN AND THRANDUIL ADVANCE WITH SOME HOBBIT AND MAN OFF DOING IDFK

THORIN APPROACHES THE DOOR WE’RE STILL CHEERING WE GOT THIS I KNOW WE GOT THIS 

and i wake up
