A new trailer has been released minutes ago at the LOTR Official site. The Quicktime full screen download will have you in tears.
Update: Since it's impossible to download at the moment, members can get theirs here
Looks like you will have to keep trying, the server is overloaded at this time. Lucky I was there waiting like a dog for it to be released.
I tried to download it.
The server is still down and this is 12 hours later.
Anyone got lucky ?
Try this link for now.
It's a new TV trailer.
But i want the 30 mb full screen trailer.
I'll wait till the server is back online.
I managed to get it while it was possible, so I uploaded it to one of my servers.

Thank you very much Juan.
Got it. Brilliant trailer.
Looking at the trailers which has been released,i think this will be the best movie of this year.
It should be anyway..It's a Peter Jackson movie.
While I haven't tried downloading the trailer here, I did see a new television trailer last night during the season Premiere of 'Angel'. I'm guessing it is the same one? Absolutely stunning. Interesting to note that Mr. Lee's voice was used in a short piece of the voiceover, although he did not appear on-screen. The more I see of it, the more I simply can't wait to see this film in its entirety.

Not sure Charles because I haven't seen the one on TV. Mr Lee's voice is definetly in it as a voiceover.
Well, I've viewed the trailer at http://homepage.mac.com/johnemdall/.../lotr-tv320.mov
and it is definitely not the same trailer as shown last evening on the WB network during 'Angel'. The one aired on television was 2:51 minutes in length and had Mr. Lee's voiceover in one segment saying:
"Sauron's forces are already moving. They will find the Ring and kill the one who carries it."
For those who cannot view the full-length trailer or simply wish to see a frame by frame analysis, click here to go to TheOneRing.net breakdown or just visit TheOneRing.net and look for the frame-by-frame analysis.
I really can't emphasize enough how stunning this trailer looks. I was simply in awe of the visual splendour on display. Of course, it would have been even better had we been able to see Mr. Lee in the trailer too...
There was another, shorter trailer shown on television during the MTV music awards, which I tend to avoid, due to sheer boredom. It has been posted online at Ain't-it-cool-news.com, and I have a copy of it, if anyone should want it. It's quite good, but obviously not as spectacular as the new trailer. And it was wonderful to hear Mr. Lee's voice on it. It's going to be grand fun watching him as Saruman The White, though I believe he's only in two of the three films.
Unfortunately, I can't get the WB, so I wasn't able to see the trailer when it opened on Monday evening. I knew it was coming out, though, from Imladris.net. It's on the official LOTR website, of course, in small, medium, large, and full-screen versions, depending on how many MB you want to download.
Charles is right. I was in tears watching this trailer. I have waited so long for somebody to make a live-action LOTR, it's a dream come true to see how it's turning out. To have Christopher Lee in it playing Saruman is going to make it even better. When they show the part where the Fellowship is drifting down the river past the Argonath and I saw the huge foot of the statue, *sigh*, it simply took my breath away. (I know, that probably sounds silly, like the Frodo groupies swooning on Imladris). Truly epic stuff!
I was very, very impressed by the new trailer and based on everything I have seen and read I feel very confident that The Lord Of The Rings trilogy will forever change our expectations of what fantasy movies can be. Too often in the past this genre has been treated with contempt by the film industry. But now, at last, it looks as though we will finally see something of real quality, integrity and depth. Crucially, the performances all look to be of a very high calibre, especially Ian Mckellen as Gandalf. Of course, we haven't had an opportunity to see much of Christopher Lee yet (but his few lines heard in the trailer bode extremely well!).
I can't remember anticipating a movie with more enthusiasm and genuine excitement!
The hairs went straight up at the back of my neck and had a tingling sensation in my spine when I watched the newest trailer. I think this film is going to rock! Only 3 months to go and it can't go quicker for me.
The trailer was breathtaking. It certainly makes me more eagerly
to want to see it.
This is my first post, this site looks very good - very cosy. Every LOTR trailer that has come out has made my jaw drop further and the new one is one of the best trailers I have seen for any film. I read that Mr Lee was dropping into the WETA workshops where they do the fx and grilling the lotr fanatics there with questions about tolkien which had them stumped, that made me laugh. I'll probably have to watch the film around 10 times in succession when it comes out.
PS I cant believe that I have to wait for 50 posts before I can get my wee pic up beside my name
Don't know if anyone caught it, but they showed half (why only half!!!?) of the new trailer on Film 2001 on the BBC here in the UK last night (October 4th). Looked even better than before!!
I would be surprised if Mr. Lee isn't in the first film, as one of the earlier posts worried. Saruman does play a role in the first novel--albeit in flashback--during the Council of Elrond. I'm sure Saruman's attempt to seduce Gandalf--and then imprison him in Orthanc will show up in this film.
Of course, the most emotionally charged scenes I look forward too are in the end when Saruman faces Frodo--and is killed by Wormtongue.
I haven't looked at the trilogy--but I don't recall Tolkien being emphatic about Elves and Hobbits having pointed ears. They seem odd on the hobbits, though...
Have no fear, it has been officially confirmed that Christopher Lee does indeed appear in the first movie.
Indeed he will most definitely be in the first movie. Gandalf's encounter, imprisonment and (invented) duel with Saruman is shown in FOTR. Also, I believe that he may be more present as the visible "villain". I may be wrong on the last point.
Does it sound to anyone else like CL is saying "rings" in the line "they will find the ring"? I know the plural is not what is meant, it is just how it sounds in the trailer.
He said "rings" clearly and on being questioned, he mentioned that there are about 20.
"Ash nazg durbatuluk,
ash nagz gimbatul,
ash nazg thrkutuluk
ah burzum-shi krimpatul!"
"Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie"
The 9 were taken, and those are the Nazgul,
the dwarf lords were killed,
and the three are hidden.
The one ring...found by Bilbo, of course.
It may sound as though he says rings, but it makes no sense both grammatically and in the context of the story.
Firstly he says "they will find the ring, and kill the one who carries it". Surely if he means rings, he would have to say "find the one( who carry(ies) them."
Secondly, I am well aware that there is more than one magical ring, but Sauron and so the Ringwraiths are only trying to find "The One Ring".
They will find the rings and kill the one who carries "it".
To me, it sounds grammatically correct. "It" as in one ring, the ring. They might not want to kill everyone that has a ring? how can they tell which is which until they see it?
I have no idea really, I'm just saying what he told me.
Part of the Ringwraiths' power that they get from Sauron is the ability to be "drawn" by the power of the One Ring. The Dwarves were killed because they wouldn't give them up, tortured to death by Sauron in revenge. The 9 kings, including the Witch king were all evil men who desired power, and who are classified as Dwimmerlaik, much like the one in the Barrow in Fellowship of the Ring who attack Frodo, Merry, Sam, and Pippin at the Barrowdowns, but who are far more powerful. They "smell" for the ring, but it is when Frodo puts on the ring that he's in danger, because then he is in their world; he can see them, but they can see him better, too.
SPOILER. I didn't notice the s added to Mr. Lee's wording, but he is referring to the One Ring there, as he is trying to wheedle Gandalf into revealing where it is.
Well I have to say, having just listened to the extract from the trailer several times in a row, it sounds to me like he says 'find the ring'. There is some background noise as he finishes saying 'ring', which could possibly hide the sound of the s, but if it's there it's almost impossible to hear. Also, it makes far greater sense to me if Saruman is saying 'find and the ring and kill the one who carries it'. Anyway, that's the way I've heard and understood it.
I wouldn't get too worked up about the grammar in the trailer. Hollywood is notorious for lifting material out of context and using it wherever they think it helps beef up the trailer.
In fact, the audio of Mr. Lee may not even end up in the film. It could have been lifted from some work reel. We'll have to wait and see the scene with Gandalf.
I'm curious about the music for the trailer--whether it is in fact from the soundtrack--or is as more usually the case with Hollywood, stuff they ripped off from another movie or a Classica music CD.
I can't tell you how many times I've seen movie trailers pirating the music of Patrick Doyle which he composed for Kenneth Branagh's Henry V. It's so tacky...
The music in the trailer is definitely not from the film itself. There is a breakdown on several of the Tolkien/movie related sites of where the music is derived from (a couple of existing movies and an original piece that has featured on most of the LOTR trailers).
Personally I'm very excited about Howard Shore's music and have great hopes for it. I re-watched Cronenberg's remake of THE FLY a few days ago and was once again enormously impressed by Shore's music (as well as the film itself).
As some of you know I am as excited as the next one about this movie and hopefully going to the premier. Is there any way of warning others who have not read the books that you are going to give the plot away, or the ending, as I have just found out when browsing through these and discovered what happens to Saruman at the end!!
I had noticed some put Spoiler in front but not all.
The way to post spoilers without people having to see them, is to put a warning before posting it and making the text the same colour as the background, in this case white.
I wouldn't worry too much from what has been posted here so far, they are just rumours. What happens to Saruman at the end of the third film, only those involved in the production know as nothing has been finalised yet.
