Question: Who are the inhabitants of the planet we see at the beginning (the first to fall victim to Unicron)? Are they transformers or just normal robots?

Chosen answer: The planet was called Lithone. According to a comic book adaptation, the race that dwelled there were an offshoot of the Transformers who were more emotional. The limited information given on the only two characters named in the movie, Arblus and Kranix, shows that they can transform even though this is never shown.

Question: What's the name of the song that plays when The Bride cuts Sofie's arm? It starts right when The Bride cries out O-Ren's name, and lasts all the way until the actual fighting begins. I have the soundtrack, but it's not there.

Chosen answer: "Death Rides A Horse" by Ennio Morricone.

Question: What exactly are bore worms?

Chosen answer: Since one meaning of "bore" has to due with digging tunnels and they are used in the torture scene, one can assume that they are worms that eat holes into your flesh.

Question: Darth Vader doesn't know he has a daughter (until the end of ROTJ). How did he know that he had a son? One may think that when Obi Wan hid Luke with his uncle, they'd have changed his last name from "Skywalker" to something else so that Anakin couldn't find him. Or did Vader just realize it when he was chasing him in SW (when he says "the force is strong with this one..."). This has always confused me.

Chosen answer: Vader initially became interested in Luke after seeing him both in the Death Star after Vader killed Obi-Wan, and during the Death Star's destruction. After discovering him to be a powerful force user, he went to great lengths and used many Imperial Intelligence resources to identify him, eventually learning his surname of Skywalker, and realising that Luke was his son. He later learned the name Luke, but at that point it was redundant.

Question: Did James Cameron ever express how he felt about judgement day occurring at the end of this movie, considering he chose to have nothing to do with this production.

Chosen answer: James Cameron has stated in interviews that this film has nothing to do with him. So basically as far as he is concerned, judgement day never happened and life went on as usual. If the makers of T3 felt judgement day should happen, then that is their decision, as it is their film now. James has told his story, others can tell theirs.

Gavin Jackson

Question: Are there any hidden extra's on the DVD and if so, how do you get to them?

Chosen answer: No one has found any at the moment but keep checking on the Easter Eggs page to keep up to date with any extras found.


Question: What is the name of the music that starts playing in the final trailer just after the narrator says "our last hope will be one of them"? Where can i get the music?

Chosen answer: This is an excellent track called "Gothic Power" by Christopher Field - most famously used in trailers for the Fellowship of the Ring. It can be found here -

Question: What role does Paris Themmen play in this movie? ( only lists him as "uncredited".).

Chosen answer: Themmen plays a background bowler in pretty much all of the bowling scenes. I don't know if this is necessarily worth a credit, but I guess his agent disagrees with me.

Question: What was that phone number that they listed of that guy that lied about having an 800 number?

Kirill Ostapenko

Chosen answer: (202) 225-2536. It's not that major a revelation in the film, as his number's publicly available on a variety of sites.

Question: Kind of random, in the MTV Movie Awards 2004, when they announced Lord Of The Rings: The Return Of The King as best film a song was played for a few seconds, does anyone knows what song it was?

Chosen answer: The song was 'Bright Lights' by Matchbox Twenty.

Question: Is there any indication that we will see Sam put the Ring on to hide at Cirith Ungol, as he does in the book, in the extended version?

Chosen answer: It would appear to be unlikely. The way that they dealt with Sam taking the ring it would appear that they wanted to let the audience think that the orcs actually had taken the ring from Frodo, not that Sam had it. If they were to show Sam using the ring, that whole thing would be undermined.

Question: What happened to Cole in the room that he got locked in at the party? We hear the ghost but as far as we saw during the movie, none of the ghosts actually hurt Cole, physically at least, so what could've happened to him?


Chosen answer: Near the end of the movie, when Cole tells his mother his secret, he is explaining to her about the ghosts, and says "They're the ones that used to hurt me". This informs us that the ghosts are responsible for his injuries in the movie, and that this problem has stopped. In this specific case, however, Lyn removes Cole's unconscious body from the closet. The movie does not specifically answer your question, however it seems reasonable speculation that he was injured by the ghost inside the closet with him, and that he thrashed about violently trying to escape. Since the hospital checked him for signs of seizure, I expect he lost consciousness not from physical trauma, but because the experience was too much for him and he, for want of a medical term, fainted.

Question: At the moment of Theoden's death, the last thing he says to Eowyn is 'I go to my fathers, in whose mighty company I shall now not feel ashamed. Eowyn...' What exactly is he ashamed of?

Chosen answer: He's ashamed of the way he fell under Saruman's influence. It also appears, from his conversation with Eowyn earlier, that he feels a certain amount of shame that he did not lead the victory at Helm's Deep.

Question: What is the name of the song at the beginning of the credits?

Chosen answer: The song is "My Generation" performed by The Who.


Question: When Frodo, Sam and Gollum reach Minas Morgul (The dead city), a massive green and white tower of light comes out of the city. (It frightens Gandalf, Pippin and the Gondorians back at Minas Tirith). What is it for exactly?

Chosen answer: In the book, this happens in response to a similar signal (albeit red) from deep within Mordor (probably from Barad-Dur) - it seems to be a rather dramatic signal for the armies of Mordor to advance. In the book, Sauron's forces make multiple assaults - both Lothlorien and the dwarven kingdom of Erebor (in the north) come under attack - so a powerful signal, visible for great distances, would be required to ensure a simultaneous assault. Although the Barad-Dur signal is not seen in the film, the Morgul flare can still serve the same purpose of signalling the advance on Gondor. Plus, as you observe, it has the handy side-effect of scaring the hell out of the Gondorian forces - Sauron is a master of manipulation and psychology, so it's exactly the sort of thing he'd do.

Question: If the company knew about the Aliens from the start and coveted them as a bioweapon, why did it take 57 years and the reappearance of Ripley for someone from the company to make another effort to get one? In the intervening 57 years, wouldn't the company have sent someone out to the derelict spaceship wreckage?

Chosen answer: The company doesn't wait 57 years, they built a colony on the planet over 20 years prior to finding Ripley. The company was apparently unaware of the exact location of the derelict spacecraft. After finding Ripley and obtaining information from her, Burke was able to send the Jorden family to the precise location of the derelict spacecraft.

Question: Well into the movie, Seth's computer, which uses voice recognition, can no longer recognize his voice due to his transformation. How then, did he hook up the three telepods and execute the final sequence if he couldn't get into his computer?

William Bergquist

Chosen answer: He just used the keyboard. We see him typing on it several times before this scene, so the computer is not voice command only.

Grumpy Scot

Question: What is the name of the Black and White movie that Caine and his Grandparents are watching in the house after Caine has been shot?

Chosen answer: It's a Wonderful Life.

Question: How come Numbar uses a microphone with a Z on it, since on all of his posters he has a froofy looking person (In no way resembling Selena) and Selena is the supposed goddess of the moon, and the festival is on the moon, wouldn't he have an S?

Chosen answer: There was a "find the hidden Zs" contest on the website for the movie. The Z on the microphone is part of the contest.

Question: This applies to all three films: does anyone have a link to a website showing Peter Jacksons different cameo appearances throughout the three films?

Chosen answer: lists all the cameos in the trivia sections for each film.
