AICN Reports on ROTK Trailer After TTT - Will we see a glimpse of the third film in theatres soon?

Harry from Ain't it Cool News spoke with Peter Jackson lately regarding the possibility of a Return of the King trailer at the end of The Two Towers.  Here's what PJ said:

As far as I'm aware the first ROTK trailer will hit cinemas about May or June.

We're not doing a ROTK trailer for the end of Two Towers like we did last year. The reason is that the TT extended DVD has been so complex this year, it would have taken too many resources away from trying to get that finished.

The FOTR extended cut had 35 extra CG shots - the TT extended cut has over 150. Weta are plowing through those, plus starting ROTK. We have a huge TT extended cut sound mix in a few weeks. It's all very complex and we deemed an early ROTK trailer as simply too much to take on this time around.

Thanks to Frank G. for the Tip.
