I came to all of this really late; saw all three of the films in January 2004 (rented Fellowship and Two Towers, but thankfully Return of the King was still playing at the Uptown Theater in DC and I went back for seconds and thirds before it finally left) but I didn't have internet access at home at that time. My family helped feed my obsession by giving me the extended editions of the first two films plus a set of the books for my birthday and I mainlined it all.

Toward the end of the year I had internet at home and found some of the great collections of pictures and videos that were online at the time. I downloaded as much as my dial-up connection could handle, and over the holidays I forced my sister to watch a playlist of clips and a slideshow of pictures so she could see why I didn't only adore these films I also was completely mad for this cast. And being the nice and kind person that she is, she indulged me. (Not that it was complete torture for her; she enjoys the movies too and does get why the Fellowship of cast and crew are so special.) Some of those files haven't faired so well over the years and I've lost some others so what follows is not the complete FotR portion of that playlist. (Plus I found a couple that were new to me while tooling around youtube.) But I hope you enjoy some of these clips and have fun watching.



Clips of news coverage from the Wellington premiere

Excerpts of red carpet interviews from the New York premiere (and at the very end some brief clips from London); you have to listen out for Billy's response after Bean messes with Dom during their interview :-)

Billy and Dom being interviewed at the New York premiere (and the first clip I ever saw of them together); and once again someone messes with them while they're being interviewed, this time Orlando *g*

And here's part two

A couple of excerpts of coverage of the Fellowship press conference in Japan. As a Bean lover there's not enough Sean for my liking (but he looks great) but it does have one of my favorite Orlando moments ever.

And I posted these before but I enjoy watching them and it was during the Fellowship promotion; most of the Fellowship and Peter on BurlyTV

I have a clip of Sean Bean being interviewed by Jonathan Ross that I marked as during the London promotion. But it has no sound! I can't remember if it never had sound and I kept it because I just like to look at Sean, or if now that I have a mac I can't really play ram files or what. Anyway, if anyone's interested and wants to just stare at the loveliness that is Bean or see if they can get some sound, I uploaded it to mediafire for people to download.

I know there must be a lot more out there; what are some of your favorites?
