Two Towers footage
You may have heard that LORD OF THE RINGS director Peter Jackson wanted to attach a four-minute preview of the next installment in the series, THE TWO TOWERS, to copies of THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING as a "thank you" to fans. The original date of the preview's release was to be March 22nd but that date has changed slightly. The new footage will now premiere in theaters on March 29th. LOTR will still be "re-released" to over 2,000 theaters on the 22nd (before the Oscars) but won't have the TWO TOWERS preview until the 29th (after the Oscars). THE FELLOWSHIP is approximately $10 million away from breaking the $300 million plateau.
