LORD OF THE RINGS UPDATE

Getting ready for The Two Towers? Here’s an early look from Time Magazine, which notes that “Fellowship was often quiet and deliberately paced. Two Towers is an unabashed action film.” They predict that we’ll like it even more than the first film.

There’s no introduction in The Two Towers, no prologue to remind you where the first film left off. The new “extended” DVD edition of Fellowship of the Ring is available now, with an additional thirty minutes of footage. (You didn’t get fooled and buy the original DVD release a few months ago, did you?) The extended edition is spread over four discs, and it includes a free movie ticket to The Two Towers if you see it before December 31 – which makes it a steal for $26.
