The LA Times has a few articles about LOTR in Cannes. This one is mostly about the economics of hyping the films. Interestingly it mentions that journalists including Harry Knowles of AICN were flown to the LOTR wrap party last year as part of the hype-building exercise. One of the first things Harry said to me at that party was that he’d got there under his own steam. I hadn’t even asked.
