LOTR News: Japan

January 17, 2003 at 2:44 am by Tehanu  - 

Bruce writes in to tell how the buzz for LOTR is building up this time in Japan. “There is only five weeks plus until the opening of TTT in Japan! The local Warner Brothers – MyCal cinema group will have some special showings in early February (probably around the 7th, 8th and 9th). Ticket sales begin on January 25. Can’t wait. On another development in Japan, a regional entertainment weekly magazine, Tokyo Walker, has a special section on The Two Towers. Included is a DVD with scenes from the movie (13 in all, including one of two new ones not seen here before), interviews with many of the lead actors, the most recent trailer, and a preview of the TTT game,
about 30 minutes in all.”

There certainly seems to be a lot more awareness this time round, even if the Japanese are still having to put up with the delayed release policy.
