Viggo Mortensen's movie Hidalgo (sucky, uninformative website here) has been delayed again, this time until March 5, 2004.
This does not bode well for the yummy Mr. Mortensen's post-King-of-Middle-Earth career. Pity. He hasn't been in a lot of movies, but the performances I've seen have been quite good - he did a nice turn as Lucifer, King-of-hot-unpleasant-places in "The Prophecy," though I haven't seen the two sequels [hangs fangirl head in shame].
On other Viggo-related fronts, there are stills from the extended version of Two Towers at the official site. I was thrilled to see a smiling Merry and Pippin in the restored "Flotsam and Jetsam" scene. Compared to the extended version of the first movie, TTT lacks heart. It looks like the extended version will give that back to us.
No official word when the RotK trailer is coming out, but rumor has it that it will be seen this weekend in front of "Secondhand Lions." (A movie that looks mildly worth seeing on its own merits, without the added incentive.)
Is it December yet????
