Next week, ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY presents its annual Holiday Movie Preview, a special double issue packed with buzz on all the big-screen offerings for the coming season. This year, New Line’s “Lord of the Rings” trilogy (the first installment, “The Fellowship of the Ring,” opens Dec. 19), is spotlighted on 5 collectible covers of the issue, including:

ELIJAH WOOD as Frodo
IAN MCKELLEN as Gandalf
VIGGO MORTENSEN as Aragorn
CATE BLANCHETT as Galadriel

…and a CAST COVER, displaying all of the above: Mortensen, McKellan, Wood, and Blanchett.

The issue also features a 10-page behind-the-scenes story on “Lord of the Rings,” with quotes from director Peter Jackson, stars McKellen, Wood, Mortensen, Sean Astin, and others. Entertainment Weekly correspondent Gillian Flynn travelled to Middle-Earth stand-in New Zealand and traces the fantasy series’ epic journey from page to screen, revealing elements that were excised or changed from the books, how the principal performers were cast, why Jackson was the choice to helm Frodo Baggins’ journey to Mordor, and much, much more.
