If the film is true to the book, you won't see it happen. [In reply to] Can't Post

Not that I expect the filmmakers to be faithful, but in the book, the fatalities that concern you are tossed off as an afterward in just one sentence. An impressively brutal move on Tolkien's part. I don't think Jackson & Co. have the guts for that.
