Our mailbox was flooded this evening with email about excited LOTR fans who were surprised to see a semi-new LOTR:FOTR commercial during a break of Game 3 of the World Series and an NBA Game. Take a Gander at some of them:

Just wanted to let you know that there was a new LOTR trailer shown at about 10:30 p.m. Eastern between innings of the World Series…maybe a new shot or two (I saw some amazing looking trees in a super-fast Lothlorien clip) but otherwise just snippets from the previous two trailers.

I was gonna go hit the sack right away after Work, but I had this urgency to turn on the tube and watch MJ play against the NY Knicks. Maaaaaaan, it was Awesome. Not the game, but the LOTR TV TRAILERS they aired during commercials!!!! It’s slightly different from the Angel premiere, but very Impressive. The game is Live on TNT, and I’ve had 3 fixes of the addictive trailers so far

Hi, I dont know if this has already been reported but during the NBA game on TBS there was a new LOTR trailer. Maybe it has been shown before but some of the stuff looked new to me. Some new dialog from Elrond describing the fellowship, and a great new Moria shot, etc. This is the first time I have ever written in, so I also want to thank you for a great site.

A possible new trailer (i don’t know if it’s already been seen) was shown on TBS tonight during the Wizards vs. Knicks basketball game. It showed the fellowship pledging their weapons to Frodo, Gimli fighting with an Orc, and the fellowship approaching the Pillars of Argonath. All in all the trailer was outstanding, especially the force Gimli demonstrated fighting the Orc, and the beauty of the Pillars of Argonath.

We were just watching the Knicks-Wizards basketball game and they showed a new LOTR trailer. It was about a minute long and had many new images. Just thought I’d pass that on!

I just saw a new preview for FOTR during the Wizards v. Nicks game. It was very short, maybe fifteen seconds, but had a couple new scenes. One of Elrond speaking, another of the fellowship in boats, and a very short fight scene which I don’t believe I’ve seen before.

Just writing to tell you I saw a 30-second preview for FOTR just now, 10:10 pm EST on TBS during the season opener between the Washington Wizards and the New York Knicks! It was very similar to the MTV video music awards preview, with some of the same text messages and shots, but with several things i had not seen, like gimli fighting in a forest and a shot of the fellowship riding the Anduin before they get to the pillars! It was short and sweet! I wasn’t taping unfortunately!

Trailer just played on TBS during the Wizards game. Just thought you’d like to know.

I was just watching the Wizards vs Knicks NBA game and a Fellowship of the Ring trailer played during a commercial early in the 2nd quarter. When they came back from the commercial, FotR was listed on the screen as one of tonight’s game sponsors.
