There are three film adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy novel, “The Lord of the Rings.” These films were directed by Peter Jackson and produced by New Line Cinema.

1. “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring” (2001)

2. “The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” (2002)

3. “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King” (2003)

These three films were highly successful both critically and commercially, collectively winning 17 Academy Awards, including Best Picture for “The Return of the King.” They are widely considered as masterpieces of cinematic storytelling and are beloved by fans of both the book and the movie adaptations.
