Waiting in the Star Wars line with Frodo and Sam

Imagine if you were a Star Wars Fan and a LOTR fan and by some incredible coincidence both your favourite things got combined in one experience.

That’s exactly what happened to Peter: “I thought you might be interested in some of our photos from the opening day of Star Wars when Elijah and Sean came and sat behind us in line for the evening.

“On the middle of this page you’ll see some of us and Elijah. He came over to our group to say hi to us. [More]

“Here’s a pic of Sean when he arrived. I’m the guy on the left. [More]

I was the first to see Sean and say hi and introduce myself to him and show him the way to Elijah. They were both so cool to everyone. By the end of the night and in the theatre, I was sitting near them and Sean knew me by name already and I chatted with both of them for a bit. Here’s another pic from someone else’s camera of Elijah. This one has me smiling, on the right.” [More]

Pre-ordering the FOTR DVD

People wrote in suggesting other options for pre-ordering the FOTR DVD if you don’ t like shopping online. You can pre order the video or DVD of FOTR at Woolworths in the UK and in the US, “Blockbuster may take pre-orders eventually, but the Warehouse is taking pre-orders NOW (did it myself yesterday), and you get a $3 off coupon when you do.” Also in the US, Warehouse and Hollywood are taking pre-orders. Thanks to Matthew, Kerry and Rachel.

Pre-Order DVD’s In Canada Too

Adrienne writes: I’m writing after reading the Pre-order DVD front page article about Blockbuster. I was just in the Blockbuster in my town (Toronto area, Canada) where I know some of the employees, and I was informed that the DVD will definitely be available to pre-order, and that as soon as mid-June (I actually think he said June 6th…but I can’t remember 100% for sure…). Regardless, I guess that’s some sort of confirmation that it WILL be available to pre-order soon! I don’t know about give-aways with it, but they did it in Canada with Harry Potter too, so I would think they’ll do it for this.

Orlando On MTV Movie House

Mor’loki Twilight writes: I was watching MTV Movie House and I noticed a particular blond elf (Legolas of course). The announcer mentioned what Orlando Bloom (Legolas) did in his spare time. It was pretty funny. It showed shots of Orlando sky diving, snowboarding, and bungee jumping. They’re probably going to show it again.
