Daddy Twofoot sends us this text from USA Today’s promo for the Weekend Edition.
Exclusive USA WEEKEND /Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers poster This one-of-a-kind collectible introduces three new characters and depicts a key scene in the continuing epic adventure of Hobbit Frodo Baggins’ heroic quest to destroy the all-powerful One Ring – and with it, the evil Sauron’s rule over once-idyllic Middle-earth.
The poster is styled after what the film industry calls a “one-sheet,” an image designed to give a movie an identity. Unlike the official theater one-sheet for The Two Towers, our special poster not only features warrior-princess Éowyn, her downtrodden uncle, King Théoden, and the shifty, One Ring-obsessed Gollum (characters who will be seen for the first time in this sequel to last year’s Oscar-nominated The Fellowship of the Ring), but it further reveals an image not used in any other Two Towers marketing materials: that of soldiers guarding the city of Osgiliath, where Hobbits Frodo (Elijah Wood) and Sam (Sean Astin) are taken after being captured.
There are 10 characters from the first film, including Frodo, Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Arwen (Liv Tyler) and the wizard Gandalf (Ian McKellen). The poster is bordered with verse from the original Tolkien books, a portion of which is rendered in Elvish, the language of Elves.
