Fatty has another "Two Towers" film still to whet your appetities.

It IS a very nice chess set to gaze upon. It looks like pewter and bronze, I'll grant that. However, the pieces are some sort of plastic; which, at first, made me regret my purchase, (at this point, I was still expecting pewter and bronze!)

Ringer Spy Padfoot sent TORN scans and a translation from Germany's Cinema magazine, which described some of the new footage shot earlier this summer.
"Well after Drudge made his premature declaration on his site that the 2nd LORD OF THE RINGS film had leaked online - without checking it out for himself it seems - I contacted various unsavory barbarians in the cyber trenches.
