Sky Cinema Middle-earth: All “The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” films on one channel.
Between March 25 and April 5, 2021 (Easter Monday), Sky viewers immerse themselves in the fantastic world of JRR Tolkien. During this time, the pop-up broadcaster Cinema Mittelerde will show all six films in the “Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” series around the clock. The blockbusters run in the extended version, the three parts of “The Lord of the Rings” even in the special extended version. You can see between 30 and 45 minutes more per film than in the theatrical version. Spectators can accompany the heroes Frodo, Bilbo & Co. on their adventures for a total of around 20 hours.
“The Lord of the Rings” and “The Hobbit” on Sky
Speaking of fans: since Peter Jackson brought the first part of the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy to cinemas in 2001, the followers of JRR Tolkien’s novels have been at his feet. With enormous production efforts, Jackson brought the huge epic to cinematic life in his native New Zealand. “The Lord of the Rings – The Companions” (2001), “The Lord of the Rings – The Two Towers” (2002) and “The Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King” (2003) grossed almost three billion dollars worldwide well over 10 million cinema viewers in Germany alone. This makes them one of the most successful films of all time. Together with “The Hobbit – An Unexpected Journey” (2012), “The Hobbit – The Desolation of Smaug” (2013) and “The Hobbit – The Battle of the Five Armies” (2014), Jackson’s Middle-earth blockbusters were nominated for an incredible 37 Academy Awards. “The Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King” won eleven Academy Awards alone. No film has ever won more Oscars.
