:: I suppose you all know about the ROTK trailer TORn made available. Before you start e-mailing me about it, TORn has taken it down [they didn't leave it up for very long] after newline requested it. Apparantly it'll be released with the Extended TTT DVD, but for now, here are a few caps ;)
             
:: And here are some ROTK stills
:: Just something to add to Autumn's post about Collectormania 4 - Billy Boyd won't be attending. And anyone who is lucky enough to be going.. i want lost of scans when you get back ;)
:: Lots of pics from Dominic and Elijah's appearance on the G-Phoria Awards [most of these are from the Bagendinn] - It will air on G4 on August 8th at 8pm. Thanks to everyone who sent those in.
:: There's a mention of Elijah [and a small Frodo pic] in September's issue of Empire mag (UK): [Thanks Cat]
Q: I read it on Ain't it Cool News that Harry Knowles convinced Elijah Wood to take the role of Frodo on the set of the faculty. is that really true?
A: Did Harry convince him to take the role? I don't Know, but i know that Elijah was interested in doing it. And a friend of mine, George Wang, shot the footage that he ended up sending in. Now Elijah's got bodyguards and stuff. I said, "what happened to you, you can't even walk around anymore" (laughs) He's like the Beatles.
:: Added some more pages of Comic Con pics, including some awesome pics taken by Lilith :)

:: Anna sent along a little review from 'Spy Kids' -- Part of the plot of the movie was a quest for "The Guy", kind of a messiah-type figure, who would help save all these kids from mental imprisonment in a video game. Well, at first all the characters thought "The Guy" was Juni Cortez, the boy of the 'Spy Kid' team. But finally, when all the kid characters (there's about 5 of them) arrive at the final level that they have to beat to save themselves and the rest of the world, Elijah appears, portrayed as at least twice as tall as everyone else, (Hooray! Finally, and probably for the first and only time in his life), in a (kinda) flattering video-game-esque uniform, speaking very elegantly and inspirationally about the beauty of working together, and the wonderment of what it will be like to win together, etc, etc. Well, he then proposes to lead all the kids on into the next level, and so he opens the door, walks into a great big room, says, "See? Cake." And then gets zapped by the game, loses 99 lives faster than you can say 'jiminy-cricket', says, "Woops", and vanishes--back into the real world, where we don't see him again. :(
:: Midnight sent me the link to the collectormania site where you might find more info bout Elijah attending.. it doesnt seem to mention Elijah, but it does mention Dom :)
:: Another article from the BBC site.. thanks Carrie!
:: For anyone living near a FYE store.. Kristy sent this along.. There is a store called FYE (Music / DVD store) and they are stocking life size stand up things..of Legolas and Frodo for 20 bucks...and they are giving Gollum action figures that you get when TTT comes out if you reserve it now..
:: Well Elijah definately was in Sydney a couple of weeks ago! Belynda sent this.. a guy i know from work went on for hols up to hang out in sydney with his g/f. AND THEY MET ELIJAH!! his g/f kept saying, when they were in a coffee shop 'that's elijah wood!' To which he kept replying 'no it's not!' But it turns out she was right, and she kept buggin him till he got her an aughtograph for him! So he walks up to Elijah, and says 'Scuse me mate, but can she get your autograph?' And he's like, yeah, sure!' And signs the coaster! He's there for bondi- been surfing he says.

:: Liz sent me this.. My name is Liz, and i am starting a book of fan messages for Elijah. I was wondering if there was any way at all you could post a message on your site somewhere telling people that they could e-mail me at Llizzie16@aol.com if they wanted to add a message to the book. My friends and I are making books for many members of the cast of Lord of the Rings, and we are trying to get as much help as possible. We will be seeing the guys at the ROTK premier and will give them the books then.Thanks a lot for your time.

:: Celeste [lovely owner of frodoandsam.net] sent me details about a cool fundraiser she's running:
We are raising money to help bring Elijah as a guest to The Gathering of the Fellowship, a Tolkien convention which will take place in Toronto this December. It is rather expensive to pay for the cast members to attend, so the Gathering folks are accepting sponsorships from folks for the cast members, and frodoandsam.net and west-of-the-moon.net are raising the money for Elijah. To raise money we are raffling Sting and an original drawing of the fellowship by a Tolkien artist.
I have a page up about it on my site here: FrodoandSam.net/gathering and here is some info about the Gathering: Tolkiengathering.com
BTW, Celeste has lots of new clips up at her site, so check them out too [after you donate of course ;)]
