In 2001, Peter Jackson took on the monumental challenge of bringing J.R.R. Tolkien's epic fantasy books, The Lord of the Rings, to the big screen, starting with the first volume, The Fellowship of the Ring.
Jackson's work was met with great success, highly acclaimed by critics and fans alike, who considered it to be a landmark in film-making. It had a profound impact on the fantasy genre, completely reviving it as a profitable concern, and has continued to be featured on critics' lists of the greatest fantasy films ever made since.
The Fellowship of the Ring earned over $871 million at the box office, becoming the second highest-grossing film of 2001 worldwide, falling just short of Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone.It also won four Academy Awards out of a mammoth 13 nominations including Best Cinematography and Best Original Score, to go alongside a slew of accolades from elsewhere within the industry.
