How do you stretch an awesome epic three hour movie into a four hour broadcasting slot? Happily, according to BBC America, not just by adding an hour of commercials. When they broadcast The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers this Sunday, they’re bringing along a few familiar faces to chat about the movie:
Join PETER JACKSON, ORLANDO BLOOM & SIR IAN MCKELLEN this Sunday, June 23 at 6pm ET as they host a special presentation of THE LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERS, only on BBC AMERICA.
Immediately followed by the premiere of the All New Season of COPPER at 10/9c
They’re taking a break from the filming of the sequel to THE HOBBIT for some candid conversation and inside stories from the filming of THE LORD OF THE RINGS.
Here’s hoping we’ll get a bit of Hobbit news as well. Speaking of which, earlier this week Peter Jackson posted this on his Facebook page:
Any day you can cover the wonderful Jimmy Nesbitt and his fellow dwarves in cobwebs is a good day! Work continues on pick ups here in Wellington, with a new video blog in the final stages of post and out very soon!
We will OF COURSE post that video blog as soon as it’s available.
The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, hosted by Peter Jackson, Orlando Bloom and Sir Ian McKellen, airs Sunday at 6/5c on BBC America.
