Hey, everyone. "Moriarty" here with some Rumblings From The Lab.
It’s funny... running LOTR stories at this point almost feels like overkill. I agree with the philosophy that New Line is taking on their RETURN OF THE KING ads: not yet. Not for a while. Yes, I’d love to see footage, but we’re about to launch into one of the craziest geek summers on record, and there’s no reason for them to start the ball rolling too early. After the last few years, I think awareness is running pretty high for this last chapter of PJ’s epic saga, and as a result, they can kick back this year and just sort of let us simmer.
One of the things that is going to help is the release of THE TWO TOWERS Extended Edition. I know someone who’s seen this now, which means that I hate someone I know now. At least I have a date on which to pin all my hopes and dreams in the meantime:
From Ringer Sylvan:
I work in a small independent rental video retailer, and was quite pleased upon arriving at work today to find we had received an official release date for The Two Towers!
This came in the form of a CD-ROM "Digital Announce Kit" which contains everything from upcoming TV & radio promos, ad slicks and product images (including packaging art and DVD menu images), to computer wallpaper and icons, as well as two "countdown" screensavers. It also had a hi-res poster scan, very clever interactive menus "hosted" by Gollum featuring a 3 minute retailer trailer outlining the upcoming Merchandising Campaign, and most importantly, all of the pre-order and release date information. Release date for the Theatrical Edition will be August 26th, and the Extended Edition will be November 18th. I have uploaded a few of the images for your perusal. Enjoy!
