Hey folks, Harry here... When TheOneRing.Net got a rumor about a trailer being stuck on the end of TWO TOWERS in two weeks, I decided to contact Peter Jackson to see if the rumors were true. Would we be getting a special RETURN OF THE KING preview like we got of TWO TOWERS on FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING? Here's the response I got...
None of these stories have any truth.
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.
I am loving cutting ROTK! Very happy.
So there ya have it...
