Woo-hoo! New ROTK pictures on Lord of the Rings.net!

[Edit, 5/23/03: On second thought, don't bother going there. Go here instead for new high-resolution versions! Sweet!]

Including...

Aragorn in stars-and-white-tree-of-Gondor regalia!

Sam with the star-glass!

Frodo attractively draped with spiderwebs!

Eowyn being snuggly!

Faramir looking good!

Pippin looking feisty!

Legolas giving Aragorn a neck rub! (Well, that's what it looks like...)


I am deeply stoked. And have exceeded my quota of exclamation points for the day.

Think I'll try to see Down With Love this weekend, in other movie news. Not quite ready for the new Matrix yet, since I don't remember the first one well enough and should probably re-watch it first. Also...I'm sorry, but I have to say this:

You know those tie-in commercials where Matrix characters are serving beer and then kicking butt in a cheesy advertising-whore kind of way? I would just like to point out that you will never see hobbits doing that.

Thank you; that's all.

Hobbits would be more likely to flog merchandise at Victoria's Secret, no?

Yes...the Diamond Collection, to judge from Frodo's sparkly mithril undershirt.

Though, Legolas really has the better figure for a V.S. model.

I'm stoked too!

Mmmm, Eowyn being snuggly. And I had the exact same reaction to the Legolas/Aragorn picture... ;D

The citizens of Minas Tirith must have talked him into it. "Okay, look, you can wear the ancestral armor, but only if you take a shower first..."

The photo of Legolas giving Aragorn a neck rub...

"With Arwen safely on her way out of Middle-earth forever, Legolas decided that his time had come. Subtly, he began making the moves on Aragorn..."

Hehehe... that makes Aragorn's confused facial expression even funnier.

Thank you for posting these. I've had friends trying to send me the links all day and for some reason they haven't worked! Love the Legolas/Aragorn massage shot.

You're welcome - glad they worked for you. Seems Legolas is finally repaying Aragorn for all those manly shoulder-grabs in the second movie...

Not that I mean to be so obvious, but it there something in that Aragorn/Legolas picture to you Molly that makes you snerk uncontrollably? And I'm not talking about the neck touching.

But seriously: Eep, those pictures are amazing.

Hmm, could you possibly be talking about the way Legolas is holding his weapon?

Aragorn: Um...is that your bow against my left shoulder, or are you just happy to travel the Paths of the Dead with me?

More pictures
Hiya!

There are quite a few ROTK pics floating around the net lately and all of them just serve to make me even more anxious to see the damn movie! LOL Aragorn and Faramir really look yummy and Eomir is easy on the eye too...My gosh, A. washed his hair! *faint*

Another wonderful site for all those pervy LOTR fans: http://www.warofthering.net/photos/

Re: More pictures
Oh yeah, I've seen that site before. Looks like they reorganized it lately, though. Cool.

Hehe...everyone seems to be noticing Aragorn's clean hair. Well, it would be hard to be kingly when one is so greasy.

*squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee* I especially love the 'Legolas giving Aragorn a neck rub!' picture. Slash heaven!

I am dying for this movie to come out. Those pics made me want it even more.

May. 17th, 2003 01:10 pm (UTC)
Slash heaven, indeed. When I saw that picture, I thought, "Are they're trying to get us to write slash?"

Well, I'm sure that wasn't their intention, really. But it's so much fun to make those comments while we wait in agonizing impatience for the actual movie to get here.

SQUEE! SNUGGLY EOWYN!
Oh, I'm not a fangirl or anything. ^_^ She needs hugs. I shall supply them. Tackle-hugs, at that.
And about the tie-in commercials- maybe the hobbits would never do ordinary ones, but I think they could be convinced to do Canadian beer commercials. Shall try my very hardest, anyway.

World Tour, Media Whore
You know those tie-in commercials where Matrix characters are serving beer and then kicking butt in a cheesy advertising-whore kind of way? I would just like to point out that you will never see hobbits doing that.

Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. I saw Miss Piggy doing a Denny's commercial the other day and all I could think of was Damn that media whore of a swine! You'd never see Fozzie Bear or Gonzo sell out to the Man like that. They're staying true to their cred and are keepin' it real. Unlike that little money porker, you won't see them frontin' for a chance to cop a couple of Gs from ole Mr. Money Bags... no way... and man, don't get me started on that James Earl Jones dude...

Just you wait - Viggo will be doing Exxon commercials wearing a shirt that says “Money for Oil and My Chicks for Free”. Sean Astin's future will be pitching insurance policies on TV, a la John Astin, once all this hullabaloo blows over. Your other beloved hobbits will be wishing they had kicked some butt media-whore style...

P.S. - And, I hope you know I'm just fooling with you, Lemon. :)

Re: World Tour, Media Whore
Hehe...oh, I'm sure the actors are open to being media whores - Viggo especially. I just meant that, as far as I can remember, for the last two films, they haven't done any LOTR-themed commercials for unrelated products, with the actors in character. (There was a car commercial - Kia, I think - involving the car being chased by Ringwraiths, but I don't think those were the actual actors. But I admit it's hard to tell under those robes.) So, chances are they won't for the third film either.

I'm just waiting to be proven wrong, of course. I can see it now: Frodo and Sam reach the top of Mt. Doom, dying of thirst and fatigue, and an eagle swoops in and drops...a bottle of Pepsi.

*shudder* Please, Lord, no...

A New Thought
In response to the Aragorn/Legolas pic, I have one word:

SHAWIIIING!!!

Matrix Reloaded
Treat yourself and go see the Matrix Reloaded...it is dying to be parodised, gurl!!!

I work for an IT company and knowing the industry had me killing myself laughing in the movie at certain points. I can think of one scene that has a great potential for a Lord of the Rings tie-up with the Matrix - several lovely possibilities, which had me crawling laughing. (If Neo only opened ONE more door, I am sure he would have found the nine companions, or Elrond...lol)

Don't worry if what I say sounds like Greek. I know if you see the movie you will know what I am talking about...let me know if/when you've seen it as I would love to hear your opinion!

Re: Matrix Reloaded
I'll certainly consider a parody, when/if I see it. Though, really, parodying Keanu Reeves is easier than falling off a park bench.
