Every year at Fantastic Fest, they hold an event called Fantastic Debate where celebrities, filmmakers, and film critics engage in a headâ€“toâ€“head battle. First, they have themselves a podium debate over a specific topic, and then they move to the boxing ring, where words are not necessary.
This year brings with it an interesting little matchâ€“up. Elijah Wood, star of everything from the new FX hit series, Wilfred, to films like Lord of the Rings, Sin City and Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, threw down a challenge to LOST star and his LOTR coâ€“star, Dominic Monaghan.
