Lord of the Rings fans, you’re halfway there: This sprawling sci-fi spectacle marks the midpoint of the cinematic trilogy based on the enduring fantasy novel by J.R.R. Tolkien in which hobbit protagonist Bilbo Baggins traverses Middle Earth on an epic quest laden with many dangers—and a gazillion special effects. The all-star international cast features Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly and Orlando Bloom, and bonus content includes several behind-the-scenes production documentaries hosted by director Peter Jackson, and a music video for Ed Sheeran’s “I See Fire,” the movie’s theme song.
