Harry Potter vs LOTR.....again
3/02/01, 9:05 pm EST - Xoanon
I can't believe no one has reported this yet, but yesterday the BBC showed the trailer for 'Harry Potter', but placed some scenes from the Lord of the Rings teaser in the report, saying
"..Harry Potter will face strong competition from another film adaptation of a Children's classic featuring wizards: The Lord of the Rings"
(cue scene from the teaser, The One Ring enlarging to show armies of Mordor, all the way to Liv Tyler sleeping on the bench in her funky red frock).
I hate the media for trying to make it look like a competition between the two films. That said, my sister, who has never had much interest in Tolkien was rather psyched to start reading LOTR after seeing those teaser shots...
Still, I really could care less about the whole competition dealie.
Same here Sean, same here...

"The UK's Total Film magazine has a "2001 Films" section, with a four-page spread of LOTR, and a little interview with Cate Blanchett. Images and interview aren't new -the large images are Gandalf at Moria, and the shot of Arwen which was in Entertainment Weekly, I believe."
