Elijah Wood Interview
Elijah appears to be hitting all of the major television shows today. First, he did an interview with Good Morning America. After that, I was pleased to see him appear on Regis' show as well. An AVI clip of the GMA interview is available at the link above, but I have not yet seen an online video of the Regis interview yet, which is dissapointing, especially since they played a clip from LotR during the interview. I don't have the technology right now to capture the segment for posting on TolkienMovies.com, but here's a description of the scene:
Frodo and the Hobbits are in the woods. It is night. Frodo says, "Sam and I must get to Bree." Merry nods and says, "Buckleberry Ferry!" The hobbits leave the bushes they were hiding in and start to run. A Black Rider appears from between two trees and pursues them. Jumping over a fence and dodging through the trees, the hobbits run to the ferry, with Frodo close behind. Frodo jumps onto the ferry just in time as the Black Rider skids to a halt behind him.
It was a very exciting scene and I look forward to seeing it in the theater in... less than a week now! I can hardly contain my excitement. Anyway, if someone digitizes this segment and uploads it, please do me a favor and let me know.
