Fatty from War of the Ring has posted some great pics from The Sunday Times today, including the entire article accompanying it.
I had NO idea that Old Man Willow was such a murderous and bloodthirsty tree. I've had nightmares about Balrogs and Nazgul for many, many years; now you can add Old Man Willow to my list of personal demons. I have Universal Interactive to thank for my new terror dream. Thanks, guys.
Our crack spies, the Crebain of Pasadena, report that they've heard that the running time for The Two Towers is just one minute short of three hours, and that the film is WONDERFUL. Also, our feathered friends recommend that you NOT pay to see FOTR on Pay Per View next month just to see the accompanying TTT preview. Most, if not all the clips are from the trailers. The only thing that may be of interest is the brief cast interviews (Elijah, Viggo, Liv, Miranda, Sir Ian, and Christopher Lee), and a few behind the camera shots. There really isn't anything that new or interesting.
How can it be that a movie that finished principal photography in December 2000 is still in post-production? Strangely enough, it has to do with all the accolades received by the first "Lord of the Rings" early this year. Its 13 Academy Award nominations, its multiple British Academy awards, plus other honors resulted in major time commitments for director Peter Jackson. And that, explains Osbourne, "made us start editing the second film late, and that made the pickup shooting we did go late, and everything else went late."
For an article about how the film=makers of the second installments of Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings face even greater expectations, Peter Jackson discusses The Two Towers.

I was blessed by Eru for I successfully defended the wall on my first attempt. I was grinning like one of Queen Beruthiel's cats when it was over, and I wiped the perspiration from my hands and face. But that elation was not to last very long: the next mission nearly drove me to madness. As the women and children are quickly ushered back into the Glittering Caves and the door is closed and barred, you are left, alone, to defend it. They are coming.
Helms Deep! Merry and Pippin held captive! Wormtongue creeping out Eowyn! Faramir's refuge! Elrond and Arwen!
The Two Towers soundtrack title list announced by Soundtrack.net today provides many clues about the order of scenes in the film. Here's what our messageboard posters were able to determine!
Nimrandir from the Message Board sent this along: "I just picked up a Starlog related magazine called Fantasy Worlds. This issue features articles on Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings. There are one page interviews with Karl Urban, Miranda Otto, Brad Dourif, and Bernard Hill. There is also a five page interview with producer Barrie Osborne, a four page interview with John Rhys-Davies and a two page interview with Liv Tyler." Find out what Producer Barrie Osborne has to say about a possible Boromir flashback in The Two Towers...
Fatty writes, "Some great stuff images plus video, garnered from EA's game. New TTT scenes etc, very cool indeed."
