Rings footage previewed at Cannes

Wed 6th Jun 2001

Rings footage previewed at CannesThe world got a first substantial look at the forthcoming movie adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's epic Lord of the Rings earlier this month, when director Peter Jackson previewed a 25-minute montage.

The central piece of the montage was a 14 minute scene depicting Gimli's return to Moria. This was followed by fight scene featuring a cave troll and a glimpse of the Balrog.

By all accounts the screening was well received and has generated much anticipation. The bad news is that The Fellowship of the Ring, the first part of the trilogy, is not due to open until December 19 with parts two and three scheduled to open in December 2002 and 2003 respectively.
