Any news regarding the original Trailer release Dates for The Return of the King
If you're referring to the trailers to be shown in theatres, according to TORn it's due to be first seen on September 25th .. this was their latest report.
thanks for your info
As yet I've not read anything about it being on the internet .. no doubt officially or unofficially it'll be around the same time.
I thought the cinema trailer for ROTK was to be syncronised with the Special Edition DVD of T2T.
Not quite, as far as I know.
With FoTR the trailer for TTT was on the first, 'theatrical', edition of the DVD released last August .. based on that, everyone expected the RoTK trailer to appear on the TTT first release this August..
However PJ made it known back in March/April time that work on the RoTK cutting and also the extra footage for the TTT:EE version had delayed work on the RoTK trailer and so it wouldn't appear on the TTT theatrical DVDs. I think the "RoTK preview" on the TTT DVDs was sort of to make up for the lack of the 'real' trailer.
Whether the trailer will apear on the TTT:EE I've not read.
I also read that PJ didnt want to have a presence in the media too early on. It would be too easy for marketting to take the thing to town. Christmas would be the best tie to start things off.
Also, I think that Sept 25th was denied.
Just spotted this posted on TORn:
"USAToday is reporting that the first theatrical trailer for The Return of the King will, as previously reported by TORN, show up before New Line Cinema's 'Secondhand Lions.' The twist is that 'Lions' opens this week and the trailer will not show with the film until September 26th. The promotion for 'Secondhand Lion's' states that it is the best 'family film' since Finding Nemo, so I imagine we won't be seeing anything too graphic as far as the 3 minutes Return of the King trailer is concerned."
Methinks USAToday probably got confirmation before printing this.
Return of the King trailer will be avalable to download from www.lordoftherings.net from Monday 29th September.
UGC cinemas are showing the trailer with certain films this weekend according to www.theonering.net
I just saw saw this thing in front of Matchstick Men. Gave me chills.

Yeah I just watched Once Upon A Time In Mexico and the ROTK trailer was on. Was well chuffed.

They now have a japanese version of the trailer. Even better than in the cinema despite being crap quality.
