Tolkien Online reports that the
remastered version of 2001: A Space Odyssey playing in select theaters right now
is preceeded by the latest LotR trailer (the one that ran with "Angel").
"chelseagirl" at Tolkien Online has discovered a new listing at Amazon.com named
Lord of the Rings Soundtrack. It can't be the Bakshi CD, because that already
exists elsewhere. Rumor has it that this might be the FotR soundtrack. If so, the stated
release date of Nov. 13th puts it a full month ahead of the theatrical release of FotR,
which makes sense. The listing is here.
Xenite.org reports that a limited supply of LotR action
figures have hit the toy shelves and that they "look great". Toys-R-Us ho!
According to Billboard Magazine,
Bakshi's animated LotR
DVD was the thirteenth best-selling DVD last week.
Kerm Vader over at Tolkien Online has done some research regarding the music used in the
LotR trailers. Click here for that.
Rumor has it that the BBC in Great Britain will be re-broadcasting their 1981 dramatized
production of The Lord of the Rings starting January 2002. This BBC production is
considered by many to be the best dramatization of Tolkien's work that has ever been made.
It features Sir Ian Holm as Frodo.
Tolkien Online has some pics of Sarah McLeod, who plays Rosie Cotton in LotR. Take a
gander by clicking here.
