    New Line plans to release the 208-minute long Fellowship of the Ring Dec. 5 on 100-150 screens in the top 10 U.S. markets. The 214-minute long The Two Towers will unspool in theaters the week of Dec. 12. A one-time-only, daylong marathon will take place Tuesday, Dec. 16, when all three films will be shown back-to-back beginning at 3 p.m. in 99 theaters across the U.S. According to the studio, one ticket for the marathon will admit moviegoers to all three movies.

    The plan, dubbed "Trilogy Tuesday," was devised by the studio as a way of promoting the third and final installment of the Lord of the Rings trilogy. But what started off as a simple marketing strategy has turned into somewhat of a cultural phenomenon.

    Advance tickets for "Trilogy Tuesday" went on sale Oct. 9 on exhibitor Web sites and movie ticketing sites, but theaters have been selling out at such a rapid pace, many fans are turning to eBay for tickets. Tickets to the three-movie marathon are selling at the online auction house for as much as $150.

    New Line, however, has no plans to expand its "Trilogy Tuesday" beyond 99 theaters despite requests from exhibitors such as AMC Theaters and Regal Entertainment.

    "We've been asked to make more theaters available, but the problem is we can never provide enough," New Line's president of distribution David Tuckerman told The Hollywood Reporter Friday. "This was originally done as a marketing initiative to pay back the fans who want to see it all in one swoop. It was never intended to be a moneymaking deal for us






    i have no problem admitting that i am a geek and want to see this!

    get that matrix crap outta here.
    The graphics make that movie.
    A good story is whats carrying
    LOTR. Graphics are just helping
    bring the story to life. I cant wait
    to see them all in one shot.
    I watched part 1 and 2 back-to-back
    during my vacation, and it left me fiending
    for more. Im itchy to see part 3 now.



    Legolas and the dwarf are ill characters.

    not to destroy this thread but...

    ^you sure you aint get that mixed up, the matrix has the most indepth plot in any movie ive ever seen, the graphics are ill no doubt but thats not what pushes the movie, maybe to the younger audiences, but if you truley understood the story behind the matrix youd understand, it goes way deeper than some elves and a ring, upon watchingt the first lotr i walked out of the theater, ive only done this for 2 movies ever, the first was some john travolta movie about saving contaminated water or some shit, how ever i did sit and watch the 2nd one, which was again so boring i returned it to blockbuster like the second after i finished watching it, the matrix is a movie for all viewers, its a love/action/sci-fi/philisophical movie where after watching it leaves you thinking, even if its only thinking for like a minute, as the lotr is just D&D like dhaz said, when matrix came out i didnt like it, i thought it was stupid, great effects but stupid, but thats before i understood it...

    ...now back to your normally scheduled thread broadcasting
