In the original draft for ‘The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers’, Faramir has a vision of Frodo’s potential fate, should the one true ring take hold of his soul. Now, ten years after the film’s release in 2002, we finally get to see what that might have looked like in these newly released production shots.
