I HAVE the LOTR Audition Scripts!
5/01/00, 16:08 EST - Xoanon
The small snippets of script that I have may not even make it into the final takes due to time or dialogue changes, yet it's still an interesting read! While I cannot post them directly, I will read them all, compare them to the two Miramax scipts I've read, as well as the books, and write something up soon! Keep an eye out!
The scripts I have are for the characters: two for Aragorn, Arwen, Bilbo, Boromir, Denethor, Elrond, Eowyn, Faramir, two for Frodo, Galadriel, Gandalf, Gimli, Legolas, Merry, Pippin, two for Sam, Saruman, Theoden, and Wormtongue

We don't often hear about the ghost stories people must have told each other in Middle-earth. Tolkien's work is permeated with well-crafted legends that are usually founded in fact (within the scope of his pseudohistory), but when you stop to consider the immense expanses of time the pseudohistory of Middle-earth covers, you have to wonder just how far-fetched some of those legends must have become.

Monday morning I opened the daily tabloid newspaper "Dagbladet" the best selling newspaper in Norway. They had a two page article about the movie. The article contained some disinformation about release dates, but it was OK. They also said something about a sweedish composer, who had made some classical work about LOTR: "Out of the wizards hat". (Warning, the following link is not in English)[More]
