I'll See You in Line...

Love your pages. I've just got some additional info on the release date of the movie. I contacted several major cinemas in the largest cities in Norway and got the official release date for the movie in Norway. It's (as it is in Sweden) December 19th, 2001. I guess Scandinavia will have the same release date, and maybe the rest of the world as well??

The Herald got good pics of TWO helmets. One of which looks like the Viking one on my copy of 'Beowulf,' but I'm no expert on armour details so don't read too much into that. (more)

CinéBobine sent in this item reported by the French press which is good news for trailer fans: "In order to attribute the by-products licences, French firms were invited on the 3rd of November to watch some minutes of footage from "The Fellowship of the Ring". A publicity campaign took place which gave some important information: It was confirmed a new trailer will be on the Internet on December (as will footage from a press conference in New-Zealand), whilst a big launch of some sort will take place at the Cannes Film Festival in 2001 which will also premiere footage from the second episode "The Two Towers". The definitive full trailer for the first movie will be released in fall 2001".

"And it will be another 13 months before his magnum opus premieres on screen at The Embassy, followed by 8,000 to 10,000 other screens around the world."
Oh boy. We THOUGHT we heard that in the Holmes interview but it was sort of off-the-cuff.... could this be confirmation? The premiere...not in some famous cinema in Hollywood or New York, but at the grand old lady of Courtenay place, the Embassy?
Wow, I'm overjoyed. Wellington's hosted the production, let it enjoy the party!

John Doe Reveals all
11/15/00, 6:45 pm EST - Xoanon
The dead thing that everyone is discussing is indeed an Oliphaunt. I was speaking to a mate who watched the filming of the scene. It has a small house like structure on its back and carries a number of dwarf actors. The scene he described to me was of the creature being killed. Can't remember who kills it, but it's defiantly an Oliphaunt.

The reason for the story is that it's Hat Day, and Melanoma Awareness Week, so Turia was doing her bit to promote the coolness of wearing hats, and the film company was doing their bit for the public good. We can't post the Dom's pics, but we have our own one of a Rohan helmet here
