With Samwise Gamgee, Sean Astin, himself narrating, the film has hit cinemas across the United States and Canada, and will shortly make its way to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Germany, France, Switzerland, Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, Australia, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Latin America.
