UPDATE 02/01/01:

  • Added a small commentary from Ringer fan Rallas on the Saruman/Gandalf image. (page 04, image 05)

UPDATE 01/31/01:

  • Ringer fan Jeff sent us some very HIGH quality full screen video captures of the trailer. I have replaced all the images with the ones he sent.
  • We've added an .mp3 of the 'One Ring rhyme' in the first couple frames. Thanks do Dys for sending us this edited and clear version of the speech.
  • Thanks to Dune, PipeSmoke, Thorongil, Gandalf, Berendir, Narvi, Pippin Took and Tinuviel for the help with the frame by frame descriptions.

UPDATE 01/20/01:

  • I have swapped out all the old images with new ones. They should be a lot clearer.
  • Added a few new images to page 01. Before, we didn't have images of the hand reaching for the ring.

UPDATE 01/14/01:

  • Clearer picture of Meriadoc in front of King Theoden (page 02, 4th image)
  • Cleaned up the 5th image and added 2 more screen shots of Gandalf thrusting his staff onto the bridge. (page 02, 5th, 6th and 7th images)
  • MUCH clearer image of Gandalf and Saruman? Does anyone else see that 'head' in the upper middle?? (page 03, 5th image)
