First Nissan, now Guiness?
9/16/01, 6:57 pm EST - Xoanon
I saw the advert again the other day - have any of you seen a Guiness Advert, its in black and white, and there are several surfers and they are trying to ride this huge wave and on the crest of the wave are loads of white stallions just like in FOTR, it was just a thought that came to mind, perhaps LOTR was an inspiration there?
Of course, you all know, we are kidding :)

Angel and LOTR May Move
9/14/01, 8:34 am EST - Xoanon
Just wanted to make you aware that because of the terrible events this past Tuesday, the Warner Brothers Network is considering shifting it's Fall premiere dates. If this does occur, the premiere of "Angel" could be affected, which in turn means that the "LOTR World Premiere Preview" would not air on Monday, September 24, but instead air the following Monday, October 1st. Remember that this is all dependent upon if they do decide to shift their premieres.

Easter Eggs on Bakshi DVD?
9/13/01, 5:38 pm EST - Xoanon
I recently got the Bakshi version of Lord of the Rings on DVD. They advertise the original trailer on the back, but I can't find it anywhere on the menus.
Could this possibly be hidden? Who knows, anyone that can help him out, drop me a line.

LotR Trivia Hits Cinemas
9/13/01, 1:22 pm EST - Strider
I went to my local Carmike theater tonight to see a movie, and LOTR was featured not once, but twice, in the slide show that is presented before the previews begin (you know, the one that has various ads, movie facts and trivia, etc.). One "Movie Trivia" screen said (and I'm paraphrasing from memory here), "Andalusians, the breed of horses that are used as models for carousels, appear prominently in THE LORD OF THE RINGS." Another said, "Location scouting for THE LORD OF THE RINGS began a whole year before the start of filming." You know the movie release is getting close when the advertisers take it for granted that the general viewing public know what "Lord of the Rings" is without any need for explanation.

If you live in anywhere in the US this is something you can do that might save a life. Blood stocks in NY will be low so they will be calling on reserves from elsewhere.
Help out if you Can!

On behalf of TheOneRing.net and its staff, I offer our deepest prayers and sympathies to everyone who is affected by this tragedy. Unfortunately, it seems our world is a lot darker today, and it is days like this, when I long for places like the Shire to escape this madness.
Please donate blood, volunteer, send money, do whatever you can to help the hundreds and thousands of families worldwide that will be affected by this tragedy.
Tolkien fans come from a wide range backgrounds and financial standing, so please help out with this cause if you are able.

9/10/01, 1:47 pm EST - Strider
Hiya! Not really phenomenal, but the Fellowship Trailer (from May) was on E!'s show "Coming Attractions" this morning. The show airs again at 2pm (Pacific Time), though of course it's not necessarily going to be the same package of trailers, but it's still good odds for folks to nab a VHS copy of the trailer.
UPDATED From Yoohoo Baggins: The fellowship trailer will continue to show all this week it will repeat Friday, Saturday, Sunday & very early Monday morning 3:00 am or so. After that there will be a new lineup which may or may not include the Fellowship trailer.

Just checked out some of the cast pages. Sala Baker also played Lurtz. After a break in the shooting of Lurtz, Lawrence Makoare wasn't available (shooting The Broken Earth, I think) so Sala took over the role.

I know nothing about LOTR and the hype surrounding it but I was completely blown away with the sequences that I saw and with the music. It was fantastic...
Thats a pretty good endorsement from a non-LOTR fan.
