Today, March 11th, marks the seventh month in the shooting process for LOTR. A seven month shoot is particularly long, and considering they have another 5 or 6 months to go, it’s only about half way through.

What do we know they’ve done this month? Up to and including today we know for certain they’ve shot and completed scenes from The Last Alliance and The Black Gates, both in and around Mordor. They’ve also completed scenes in Chetwood Forest and at the Vale of Morgul, Emyn Muil West, Foot of Mount Doom, and the Gorgorath Plains.

Filming meanwhile at the Haywards Hill set has resumed; this time we shall see Gandalf fighting in and around Helms Deep taking place in the very near future.
