New Line Cinema’s The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, the central film in Peter Jackson’s epic trilogy based on the J.R.R. Tolkien classic, is set to debut in premiere showings around the world, it was announced today by Rolf Mittweg, New Line Cinema’s president and chief operating officer, worldwide distribution and marketing.

The film will make its North American bow in New York on December 5 and in Toronto, Canada, on December 6, followed by the European premiere in Paris on December 10 and the UK premiere on December 11 in London. On December 15, the film will premiere in Los Angeles and in Copenhagen, with the Queen of Denmark attending. A special screening in Seattle follows on December 16. The film premieres in New Zealand, where The Lord of the Rings trilogy was shot, in Wellington on December 18, and in Sydney, Australia on December 19.

"The opening of this film has truly become a global event," Mittweg said, "because The Lord of the Rings has been embraced by so many different cultures. The first film has shipped 35 million DVD and VHS units worldwide, a testament to the popularity of the trilogy and how widely the fan base has broadened. Multiple premieres of The Two Towers around the globe are a fun and appropriate way to celebrate both the universality of Tolkien’s themes and the excitement and anticipation that is building among moviegoers."
