I don't remember if it is given in the theatrical edition of FotR, but in the extended edition, Bilbo's introductory monologue ends with the date and year with the year given as TA 3000.

You are a bit off on Aragorn's age. In both the books and the films Aragorn's age is given as 87 years old. Even if it is not directly mentioned in the main text, Appendix B reveals that Aragorn's birthdate is March 1, 2931 (TA), meaning that he was 87 when Frodo and his companions first met him in Bree. In the films, Aragorn tells Eowyn his age at a point that might follow his birthday in the second year of the War of the Ring (at that point in Tolkien's timeline, Aragorn would be 88). I don't know where you get '90' from.

I said .... [In reply to] Can't Post

'About 90' (didn't have my calculator with me so relax) and i was just curious where the TA3000 came from (and not questoning your authority sheesh ) because its 3017 in the books they started.

See no reason for PJ to alter the timeline so drastically is all .... a short explanatory line about Gandalfs travels researching the ring and hunting Gollum would easily make that time lapse clear

I didn't know what you meant with the @ sign... [In reply to] Can't Post

I really didn't know what you meant by "@90". I've never seen @ used that way.

It was Jackson's decision to introduce Frodo's hobbit companions at Bilbo's party and to compress the events leading up to the War of the Ring. Those decisions have (or should have) consequences that reach all the back to Aragorn's birth. That includes how Aragorn could or should be portrayed if he is added to the Hobbit film trilogy. Theoretically, even the year of the Quest of Erebor should be pushed back to 2940. (Would it have been so hard, Peter, to fact-check Bilbo's birthyear? Altering the year of his birthday party was completely unnecessary.)
