New Lord of the Rings
Trailer on TV
I've been receiving word from many visitors that there is a
new Lord of the Rings teaser trailer running on some isolated television
Jesse has this to say:
THERE WAS A NEW LORD OF THE RINGS TRAILER!! It was on
MTV during the Video Music Awards. It wasn't very long, but showed Gandalf talking
more. Different Narration. That's about all I can remember.
Chris actually sent me a description of the trailer:
Just wanted to run this by you....I was just watching
Judge Judy on NY55 in New York. There was a commercial for FOTR that I have never seen
before, i.e., Gandalf saying "It must be destroyed," Sam screaming in fear, a nice
shot of a troll, new orcs-charging-the-camera shots, Frodo grasping the ring out of the
air (he seems to be laying on his back), etc. This was fantastic. Some of the images we've
seen before, but I was surprised at the amount of fresh content. The only potential downer
is I am pretty sure that I saw Liv Tyler drawing a sword or pulling back on an arrow.
It was shorter than the most recent trailer.
I don't know if I just missed this, and you guys
already know about it, or whether this is new, but I am fairly sure it is new because 1. I
keep up on this stuff ALOT, and 2. some of the CG images were the best we've seen so far.
I don't know if this is the new trailer that is
coming out in Oct/Nov, or if it is a shortened version, or what, but let me assure you
will want to see this.
The only weird thing is that NY55 is an obscure,
low-budget local channel. I was flipping around during the commercials, so I may be wrong
about the channel, but if it was NY55, that would be strange. I would think I would see it
on a major network.
Just wanted to let you know. Keep up the
You can check out other descriptions at The Palantir.
Well, I'm eager to get a peek at this. If anyone managed to
tape it or knows when it will be coming on again, please don't hesitate to contact me!
