Updates from Sean Astin: “The Lord of the Rings” is an epic fantasy adventure film, made from the novel written by JRR Tolkien. Sean Astin took on the role of Sam Gamgee in “The Lord of the Rings” and he gained 35 to 40 pounds for this role.
He recalled recently how the film’s initial marketing “missed the mark.” It was as if the marketing had fallen flat and had no idea.
Austin recalled, “I remember the initial marketing campaign kind of missed the mark, treated it as sort of a thematic Dungeons & Dragons approach, and missed the classic atmosphere,” Astin told Deadline. in an interview celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Fellowship of the Ring.
Everyone in the production of the film felt terrible because the marketing was really down. The film seemed to be very risky and was very scared of the release.
What did Sean Astin share about the Lord of the Rings?
The magic happened at the Cannes Film Festival during which the marketing really improved. Astin said: “The Cannes Film Festival showed what we know, that the film is spectacular and that we have created something that will stand the test of time.”
The film was directed by Peter Jackson. The film was based on a fantasy novel written by JRRTolkien, an English author. The story was written in 1948 and published in the children’s book “The Hobbit”. It took 12 years for Tolkien to write history.
The film was released between 2001-2003. It was a series of three titled The Fellowship of Ring (2001), The Two Towers (2002) and The Return of the King (2003).
Newline Cinema produced the film with WingNut Films. The film had an incredible cast with Elijah Wood, Liv Tyler and many other stars. The film was able to win numerous awards and nominations even though it had to deal with many breakouts.
