‘The Two Towers’ trailer now playing via QuickTime
By Peter Cohen
Another QuickTime event: Apple is host to the trailer for the forthcoming motion picture
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. It’s available from the Web in a variety of sizes, and it’s also ready for download.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers is the second movie in the epic motion picture trilogy adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings book series. It’s the sequel to last year’s release The Fellowship of the Ring, and while the movie isn’t due out until later this year, New Line Productions Inc. has decided to tease crowds with an advanced look at what’s to come with a “teaser” trailer.
Directed by Peter Jackson and starring Elijah Wood, Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen and a star-studded cast, this installment tells the continuing story of Frodo Baggins, who, with bosom friend Samwise Gamgee, must continue his effort to destroy the One Ring as he makes his way to dreaded Mordor.
Jackson and the cast and crew of The Lord of The Rings shot the photography for the three movies in an epic sequence worthy of the subject material, and each installment of the motion pictures is being released annually, during the holiday season.
