Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring has become Canada’s second-highest grossing film of all time, notching up C$50.2 million ($32 million). But it couldn’t sink Titanic which pulled in US$43 million north of the U.S. border. The fantasy-adventure is the highest-grossing film ever released by Canuck distributor Alliance Atlantis. Lord of the Rings is on 125 screens in Canada, but Alliance Atlantis will boost that on Friday when the film will have three minutes of footage from sequel The Two Towers added to the final reel. “Towers” is set to be released Dec. 18.
No more $15/month plan for LOTRO later this year.
