Two new clips from The Two Towers!
Your friendly neighborhood spoiler hoarder updates The List just prior to the expected news leaks from this week's TTT preview screenings. Which of these reports and rumors about how the film differs from the books will prove to be true -- and which will turn out to be false?
Ferrago.co.uk have teamed-up with Vivendi to giveaway a deluge of free T-shirts and other LoTR goodies.
New Line Cinema has partnered with movie theater owners to begin advance domestic ticket sales on "The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers" Friday, four weeks ahead of the film's Dec. 18 North American release.
IMDb reports, "Britain's primary movie censorship body, the Board of Film Classification, has given Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers a 12A ratings certificate, barring any child under the age of twelve from seeing the sequel unless accompanied by an adult. Last year's The Fellowship of the Ring was released with a less restrictive PG certificate. The BBFC also noted that the film clocks in at 50 seconds less than three hours. It is due to open in the U.K. on Dec. 18."
Peter Jackson has been quoted as saying that Shelob won't appear until the third film, but a picture of Shelob's lair, along with a few other clues, makes Harry think that TTT might end in her sticky web.
The film will make its North American bow in New York on December 5, followed by the European premiere in Paris on December 10 and the UK premiere on December 11 in London. On December 15, the film will premiere in Los Angeles and in Copenhagen, with the Queen of Denmark attending. A special screening in Seattle follows on December 16. The film premieres in New Zealand, where The Lord of the Rings trilogy was shot, in Wellington on December 18, and in Sydney, Australia on December 19. (Update: The Toronto premiere is December 6).
A British cinema chain publicist is a little red-faced after saying the second Lord Of The Rings film would be surprisingly saucy.
We've been reliably informed that New Line is in the process of getting an approval for a second Two Towers poster. (The first poster received a unanimous "thumbs down" from fans). This new poster will be a completely different format from the first one, and it will include characters that were not included on the first. It, however, will only be released to theaters in the LA/NY areas. There is no word yet on whether Peter Jackson has approved this new poster.
TORN ran this announcement, independently confirming Tolkien Online's earlier report about TTT's running time: "We, down here in New Zealand, have noticed that there has been much speculation about the running time of THE TWO TOWERS ....... it's exactly 2hrs, 59mins & 9secs, including the credits. So there you have it!"
