The Two Towers: We've all been waiting for things to start heating up on this one! Coming Attractions, is running a very interesting story. And since they generally have good info, July 2nd cannot come fast enough! According to CA they have learned that the first full theatrical trailer for Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers will be shipped with every copy of the upcoming Men in Black II. No word yet as to what will actually be in the trailer, but I'm sure it will be well worth the price of admission. Check out our Lord Of The Rings section for more!
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines: Not only will the Two Towers trailer be attached to all the Men in Black II prints but apparently so will the very first teaser trailer for Terminator 3. They, Warner Bros, will be posting the T3 teaser on their site starting July 2nd as well. Attaching both these trailers to the MIBII prints is a definite way to increase revenue on what would have already been an immensely profitable movie.
