Nerds ahoy! 1671000 people worldwide downloaded the LOTR movie teaser in the first 24 hours of availability – more first day downloads than any other film marketing footage in history, and easily shattering the previous record of 1 million held by Star Wars Episdoe 1. For those whose eyes haven’t glazed over, our film writer Garry Maddox reports that LOTR trilogy is being filmed in NZ at the moment, with the three films being shot simultaneously.

This explains why we have to wait 20 months for episode 1 as post production can’t start until all three films are done. Back to the computer now boys.
