"The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" is a 2002 epic fantasy film directed by Peter Jackson, based on the second volume of J.R.R. Tolkien's novel "The Lord of the Rings." The story follows the divided fellowship's journey, with Frodo and Sam's attempt to destroy the One Ring, and Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli's efforts to rescue the hobbits Merry and Pippin from the clutches of the evil wizard Saruman. The film's ensemble cast includes Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Viggo Mortensen, and Sean Astin.

The Two Towers picks up where "The Fellowship of the Ring" left off, as Frodo, Sam, and Gollum continue their journey to Mordor to destroy the One Ring. Meanwhile, Aragorn, Legolas, and Gimli track Merry and Pippin's trail into the Fangorn Forest, where they meet the Ent Treebeard, who convinces them to fight against Saruman's forces. The forces of the wizard Saruman and the Dark Lord Sauron are on the rise, and the battle between good and evil is escalating.

The film received critical acclaim and was a box-office success, grossing over $950 million worldwide. It was praised for its direction, cinematography, performances, special effects, and music. The Two Towers was nominated for six Academy Awards, including Best Picture, and won two for Best Sound Editing and Best Visual Effects. It remains one of the most iconic and influential fantasy films of all time and helped establish Peter Jackson as a visionary filmmaker in the genre.
