The Lord Of The Rings: Return Of The King: We recently reported the rumors that a preview for Return Of The King would not be showing up on the end of the theatrical release of The Two Towers. Well, as it turns out, the rumors are true. Harry Knowles, over at Ain't It Cool, received an e-mail from director Peter Jackson today, where he talked about the reason why we wouldn't see any sort of preview, as well as some details about the extended release of The Two Towers on DVD! Check it out:

Hi Harry,

None of these stories have any truth.

As far as I'm aware the first ROTK trailer will hit cinemas about May or June. We're not doing a ROTK trailer for the end of Two Towers like we did last year. The reason is that the TT extended DVD has been so complex this year, it would have taken too many resources away from trying to get that finished.

The FOTR extended cut had 35 extra CG shots - the TT extended cut has over 150. Weta are plowing through those, plus starting ROTK. We have a huge TT extended cut sound mix in a few weeks. It's all very complex and we deemed an early ROTK trailer as simply too much to take on this time around.

I am loving cutting ROTK! Very happy.

Cheers,

Peter J
