Hollywood one-one-one did a short insert on the upcoming movies this evening. Several comments were passed about how unusual it was for the show to run an slot on a movie only coming onto circuit in December, but that it looked like “one of the greatest stories ever told” could well turn into “one of the greatest movies ever made”.
Some stats about the number of copies of the books sold and the number of languages the story has been published in were thrown about, along with a few comments about the size of the project undertaken.
The slot showed footage from the Cannes festival along with interviews of PJ and the hobbits and film footage from the first cinematic trailer (twice!!), which was great to see again on a screen bigger than my 13″ monitor!!
The whole article gave the impression that film was definitely something worth looking forward too and had the potential be something truly great.
