In the aftermath of last month’s 74th Annual Academy awards, Peter Jackson has slipped something extra into his Oscar winning “Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.” Starting last weekend, moviegoers were given another incentive to see the epic. A four minute teaser of the forthcoming “Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” was added in as the last reel of the film before the final credits.
The added reel is a mouth-watering treat of what is to come this December when “The Two Towers” hits theaters.
This extra reel begins spinning immediately after the final shot showing Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee descending the rocky cliffs into Mordor. After a fade to black, the tease begins. Without spoiling the contents of the teaser, viewers will be treated to myriad shots from the second film in Jackson’s trilogy. The teaser also serves to introduce viewers to new characters altogether. If the teaser is any indication, “Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers” will be as good, if not better than “The Fellowship of the Ring.”
