    I'd like to go see LOTR:FOTR on the big screen before seeing Th e Two Towers. Anyone know if it will be generally re-released at, say, my local AMC MultiMegaPlex in the next month or two?

    I remember some discussion about this happening from early in the year, but none of my usual "upcoming movies" links seem to have any information on it.

    Thanks!

    I remember reading on Dark Horizons that it will be re-released in Australia on November 14th. [​IMG] So we are in luck.

    What would be cool is if they released the Extended Cut into theaters before TTT came out. That would rock.

    Has a story up today that say that HOYTS cinemas IS showing FOTR in November. They provided a link to Hoyt's web site where apparently more info on this can be found. I didn't follow up on it so I don't know if this is true.

    Well, Hoyt's is an Australian company, unless they specifically mentioned the US.

    November's crowded, though; I don't know how many US cinemas would have room.

    I'll be satisfied with the November 4-discer. Still, the Capital Region is dominated by Hoyts theaters, and if the do re-release the film here (as opposed to just their Australian theaters) then I'd probably go see it.

    I'm in the USA (Denver, CO). I would really like to take my family to see this on the big screen. Yes, I have the DVD (and will have the full set), but that's mostly for the extras. It's Just Not The Same as the big screen. (At least in my house).
    My parents missed it the first time, but are interested in seeing it, too.
    So -- if anyone catches word that it's going to show in the USA before TTT comes out, please let us know!

    Unfortunately, that's probably even less likely since they'd have to strike totally new prints. But they must have a bunch of prints of the original release still around that they'd just have to send out again.

    I think it would be a missed opportunity if they did not do a re-release. I think it would add several million to the gross.
