THE FILM OF THE DAY

When it was released worldwide in 2003, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is one of the most profitable feature films in the history of cinema. He also received a very positive critical reception … to the point of winning the statuettes of the 11 categories for which he was nominated at the Oscars! It thus equals the Ben-hur by William Wyler and the Titanic by James Cameron in terms of Oscar wins and becomes the first fantasy film to be awarded the Best Picture Oscar.
