Secondhand Lions looks awesome!!! What could be better than too old guys sitting on a porch and shooting at salesmen?? I think it will be similar to Grumpy Old Men and that movie was great. I can't wait! I can't wait! :Bounces off the walls:

I'm going with Eruwen and HCIsland here. Shelob shouldn't be shown except in the movie itself. It's the one thing that we <I>have</I> to wait for. If we don't, what'll be the big (moving) special effects thing? Sure, you've got Mt Doom, you've got the palantir, but you don't get any living characters (to my memory). <P>This shouldn't be seen yet, and if it's in any movie trailer, I'm covering my eyes. ~_^

yeah, it does spoil a lot, but they did do a good job concealing gollum and treebeard until the release i thought. But you gotta see it from their point of view: they're out to make a lot of money, and trailers are a part of the advertising strategy. I doubt they'll show a bunch of Shelob, so they can get people to come see the movie to see Shelob. Well, there's also plenty of websites that it'll come out on shortly after being released in theaters. If you want to know a good one, just PM me.

They might put it like they put Gollum and Treebeard: I remember that Treebeard was only shown as legs (when he scooped up Merry after already grabbing Pip) and that Gollum was only shown from the back (I think) as he climbed down the wall to sneak up on the nasty hobbitses. I sure hope they only put Shelob as bits and snatches, because that will make me want to see it even more!!

I don't mind seeing a <I>little</I> Shelob because I have waited like 3 years to see the most amazing part of the book displayed on screen. But I do hope that all they show is maybe a foot, or an eye. Nothing but a little taste.<p>[ September 10, 2003: Message edited by: Gorwingel ]

Just an FYI - the film (Secondhand Lions) was originally going to show on 9/26, but the release date has been moved up to 9/19. The ROTK preview will NOT be on the 9/19 release, but rather on the 9/26 release. <P>This is from the <A HREF="http://www.theonering.net/spyreports.html" TARGET=_blank>Spy Reports</A> section on ToRN.

The fact alone that there is so much talk about Shelob is a shame. My brother has enjoyed the first two movies, but never read the books, so he is really curious about what is going to happen. At the end of TTT, Gollum says: "We will let her do it." My brother was wondering who "she" might be, and then, it is all over the newspaper that she is a giant spider and all, he was really dissapointed about that.

I totally agree with Gorwingel. Or, just not show her at all. The more surprised and scared I am the better. But I agree about it being all over the news and stuff. It's just like Gandalf the White. Everyone knew, and it could have been an awesome surprise the way they showed it, with the voice sounding like Chris Lee's. At least they're keeping Mount Doom under wraps... *crosses fingers* I hope I didn't just jinx that...

If it's the same trailer I saw a week ago (internet, not exactly officially released), in that one they showed a few of her legs (which were quite nasty) but no smile-for-the-camera full portrait of Her Ladyship. It was pretty dark, as well, so someone who doesn't know who Shelob is, while they'd get the idea of something spidery and nasty, wouldn't necessarily have the whole ghastly surprise blown for them. This could be a different trailer, though.

Shelob is pretty real to me through the books, lets hope that PJ and his incredible staff have come up with something special.

For the past two movies I've been getting at as many spoilers as I could. But Shelob is a very special scene for me (mostly cause sam gets to kick butt) so I want it to be a total suprise.<P>I don't think we have to worry about Shelob not being scary enough. Supposedly PJ is a big arachnaphobic and they designed her to scare his pants off.<P> Be afraid! Be VERY afraid!

Hmmm... if the movie looks interesting enough to my mom we'll probably go, but I don't think I'll bug to see this one like I did with Pirates. (the one movie I was looking foward to besides RotK)<P>I decided to tag along to Hulk because there was a PoC trailer on it and there wasn't So I ended up sitting though a mediocre movie. *sigh* Maybe if I hear <I>for sure</I> that the trailer is on it, I'll go, but I can probably watch it on the internet once it's out. <P>I'm also sceptical about getting a glance at Shelob, although I really don't care. That'll be a very painful scene for me I'm looking forward more to poor Sam's reaction. I thrive on all this emotional stuff <p>[ September 17, 2003: Message edited by: Shy Hobbit ]

Aw, c'mon, we KNOW this trailer will show up on the internet before long, just like the TTT trailer they stuck on the end of Fellowship.<P>Still, someone go see this movie, okay? I don't wanna blow my money on a movie just for a trailer. Besides, I don't go to see too many movies anyway, and I only see the GOOD ones. (Not to offend any fans of this, this...WHATEVER movie...)

Gah, sorry, I forgot to warn you... don't bother reading the comments under the downloading link; only about 10% are intelligible and 1% are helpful. They need some moderators on that site... The downloads are fine, though; I didn't get any viruses.

I really think PJ's going to hold Shelob's true identity a secret. Like <B>Horse-Maiden of the Shire</B> said, they only showed bits and pieces of Treebeard and Gollum. On the other hand, they did completely ruin the surprise of Gandalf the White, so I don't know what to think. I can only <I>hope</I> that most of Shelob will be a surprise... *crosses fingers* <P>Hmm... here's a question... how is it that this guy's friend saw the trailer at all? Did I miss where it said what special circumstances allowed for him to see it while it's locked under vault and key from the rest of the public viewing audience?

I am really anxious about seeing Shelob but, like most people, I want it to be a suprise too. It probably is great and it was good how they hid Treebeard and Gollum from everyone. They probably won't show too much of Shelob. I hope<p>[ September 20, 2003: Message edited by: Blue_Punk_Dragon ]

Does anyone know if the trailer that is coming out with Secondhand Lions this Wednesday (I think?) is also going to be put on the official website? Because I heard that the trailer if finally coming out (after a lot of waiting) like this week, but then I have heard nothing about it since.

I saw a TV spot for RotK after a "Lions" preview today. I recorded it and watched the fifteen second clip in super slow-mo, and here's what I've gotten. <P>Be warned, this contains spoilers.<P>Aragorn is seen running on a field, then fighting orcs. This means that he gets to the Battle (you know which one I'm talking about).<P>Gandalf is seen up on some sort of battlement as orcs climb over a nearby wall. This is not a good sign. I have a feeling that the drama element is going to drive Minas Tirith to the same fate as Helm's Deep. Sadly, this is evidence supporting that.<P>One very good thing is a head-shot of Eowyn pulling off a dirty helmet and having the strangest looking smile on her face. One scene at least is guaranteed to be incredible, even if the first four circles fall.<P>Also, there is a brief shot of Arwen running up to Elrond and hugging him, and one of Frodo, Sam, and Gollum standing near the entrance to an odd looking cave... <P>I live in fearful joy,<BR>Iarwain<P><BR>P.S. Yes, it was implicitly stated that the trailer will be played.<p>[ September 23, 2003: Message edited by: Iarwain ]

The trailer will definately be attached to Secondhand Lions on September 26 and will be available on-line Semptember 29.<P><A HREF="http://www.theonering.net/perl/newsview/8/1064347657" TARGET=_blank>Link</A><P>Editted to add: Also at OneRing is a rather vague description of the trialer.<P><A HREF="http://www.theonering.net/perl/newsview/2/1064418201" TARGET=_blank>Link</A><P>Will have to see the trailer for myself, but Galadriel visiting Frodo (likely in a dream) seems interesting. My guess is that this is after Frodo has been captured. I also find the Arwen/Elrond scene interesting. I'd have to see it before I can take a guess at where it fits.<P>H.C.<p>[ September 24, 2003: Message edited by: HCIsland ]

I have read the discriptions of that tralier. And Oh my Gosh! It sounds absolutely amazing. I can't wait to see it. I especially want to see the end of it though, I never thought they would put a part of that scene in it

Another description of the trailer.<P><A HREF="http://www.theonering.net/perl/newsview/2/1064529509" TARGET=_blank>Link</A><P> <BLOCKQUOTE>quote:<HR> Some of the bits I remember:<P><BR>Shot of Frodo and Sam climbing to the top of a very high building... <P>Frodo getting to the top and Gollum suddenly seeing the Ring on Frodo's neck... <P>Arwen talking to Elrond about Narsil/Anduril and Aragorn needing it... showing the sword reforged... <P>Aragorn talking to Gandalf with Gandalf doubting Frodo's survival... <P>Aragorn making Gandalf feel stronger by asking what he 'believes/feels in his heart' (Sorry, I was so mesmerized I didn't take in the words properly)... <P>Aragorn making a speech to the army before the battle making them shout and cheer (you hear him but don't see him until right at the end of his speech)... <P>Eomer holding (possibly) King Theoden in his arms... <P>Frodo running up a passageway holding his light (from Galadriel) being chased by Shelob (I know this was in other reports of <BR>trailers)...<P>Lots and lots of other bits and all the time the same quotes as already mentioned in other trailers. 'For every victory' etc. <P>It looks absolutely fantastic and we sat there stunned. Whether the trailer is being shown with any other films showing at Cineworld I haven't a clue. It may be with all films being shown or only with Underworld. Perhaps they shouldn't be showing it at all yet? <HR></BLOCKQUOTE><P>H.C.

This scene was my absolute favorite of what E showed. I can't wait to see it in the full tralier. It is a very dark scene, but the colors they use are amazing, and something is glowing in the background.<P>The next part begins with a small scene of Arwen saying something and then it goes to Elrond giving Aragorn Anduril. It is absolutely amazing the way he whips out that sword, it is so quick. The colors too seem different in this scene too than in the other films. It is darker but with a very bright warmpth, and they are in a tent.<P>I can't wait to see the tralier. I am going to be seeing it this Sunday in the theater.<P>Additionally, here is a link to Harry's from Ain't it Cool news review of the tralier. I will warn you it does have some profane language, but he absolutely loved it, and it is well worth a read...<BR><A HREF="http://www.aintitcool.com/display.cgi?id=16175" TARGET=_blank>Ain't it Cool News</A><P>

No offense to the fans of LOTR movies but the Two Towers blows...it's the most exciting episode of the tale of the Third Age but what happened to the movie? I'm sure the script writer was sick in the head when he wrote it because there's very little resemblance between the book and the film. i'm not saying they should follow every word there was in the Two Towers but they could've atleast gotten rid of the not so interesting love story between 'him' and 'her' and focused on the adventures of Sam and Frodo or atleast the journey of the three others who searched for Merry and Pippin and came across the Riders of Rohan...I wouldn't be quibbling over this trifle if they had let us see a glimpse of Shelob at the end but there was not even the slightest hint that Frodo and Sam would be meeting such a magnificent ancient beast...

Now, back to the thread....<P>FaramirFan sent me this QuickTime link.<P><A HREF="http://img-nex.theonering.net/movies/092503_rotk_sm.mov" TARGET=_blank>The Sneak Preview On E!</A><P>Most excitting bit for me.<P>It isn't Arwen bring Anduril to Aragorn. It's Elrond.<P>I am so pumped.<P>H.C.<P>Editted to add: One bit I found a little strange is the shot of Frodo climbing towards Gollum. This seems to be the long stair leading towards the tunnel but what is the green glow below them? Any thoughts?<P>Never mind. I just got an e-mail from FaramirFan saying, "wasn't the glimps of Minas Morgul in the background cool?"<P> <p>[ September 26, 2003: Message edited by: HCIsland ]
