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.

World Tour, Media Whore

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...
