One of the many little tidbits of information we picked up at DragonCon this weekend involved the highly publicized tiff between New Line Cinema and Regal Cinemas, the largest theater chain in the United States. According to sources, Regal had threatened to NOT show Fellowship of the Ring in their theaters. (They had already followed through on their threat to boycott other New Line films, like Rush Hour 2)
We have a small bit of news to add to the discussion. According to the booking sheets of a certain Regal Cinema, FOTR is on for December 19th. Maybe they finally came to the realization that FOTR will be breaking some box office records. Thanks to Ringer Squid for the tip.
