HBO to premiere LORT's 'The Two Towers' on Asian television

MUMBAI: HBO has treat in store for its viewers. The English news channel will be premiering The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers for the first time on the Asian television, on 29 August at 8 pm.

As a special treat for the die-hard LORT (The Lord Of The Rings) fans as well as for film and special effects buffs, there's going to be a behind-the-scenes documentary on 21 August at 8:15 pm.

The second book of JRR Tolkien's epic trilogy comes to life with the filmmaking and production process as much of a masterpiece as the film itself. A detailed commentary by the cast and crew echoes their unparalleled dedication to the film, claims a company release.

With two Academy awards and four Academy award nominations, the Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers is the second instalment in director Peter Jackson's motion picture trilogy.

In addition, The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring will be shown on 29 August at 5 pm, followed by the Asian television premiere of The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers at 8 pm.

Tolkien's trilogy chronicles the epic struggle for possession of the legendary One Ring. If returned to its creator, the Dark Lord Sauron, The Ring will give him the power to enslave the world.

Picking up from where The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring left off, The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers follows the perils of the members of the Fellowship, who have been split up. Frodo the Hobbit (Elijah Wood) and his devoted friend, Sam (Sean Astin) are on their way to the Black Gates of Mordor to destroy the all-powerful Ring of evil and rid the world of its dark powers when they realise a mysterious creature called Gollum (voiced by Andy Serkis) has been following them. The split-personality Gollum promises to guide the hobbits to their destination in order to destroy the Ring and its evil powers, in what would later be a key role in the epic quest.

With an all-star cast of recognisable names from Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Liv Tyler to Cate Blanchett, the rest of the fantastic cast remains unchanged from the previous film, leaving no distractions or possible inconsistencies.

A remarkably expressive computer-generated character that raises the profile of using computer technology in today's movies, Andy Serkis also wore a motion-capture suit while on the set, resulting in the first character of its kind - an entirely performance-based digital creation that "acts" as much as any actor in the film.

Enchanting from beginning to end, this film is truly a cinematic masterpiece that will undoubtedly be remembered as a milestone in movie history, says the release.
