The Hunt for Gollum

anyone who has read The Lord of the Rings knows that once you have finished reading the third book, there are still many pages of Appendices to wade through. They continue to fill out the story. For instance, the Main Arwen/Aragorn love story is only touched on a bit in the main books, while the bulk of it found in the appendices.

The story of Aragorn's hunt for Gollum is never found in full, but it is laid out within the "Tale of Years" as well as some mentions in the main text. It appears that some fans are working on a 30 minute film that focuses on that hunt, and below you will find a trailer. Those people who are only a fan of the movies will probably balk at the sight of different people playing well known roles such as Gandalf and Aragorn, but for an independently made film, this looks like it will be of very good quality, with a healthy devotion and admiration of the books to guide it.

The website says it will probably be released after February, so we will see how well they did then!
