FOTR [In reply to] Can't Post

I did a page search for FOTR to see if this has been answered and didn't get any hits. I haven't read all the responses as I'm just acting as researcher. Apologies if it's been answered. Especially if it's been answered more definitively than I have here.

Some dates for news articles at TORn for FOTR:
I know you are not interested in speculation for those dates but the fact that there is speculation indicates that the firm answer was not known. The first three are speculation. The last one seems firm (although I haven't been so thorough that I can say that time was not modified later). It's hard to do a search site for the info since the articles aren't consistent in how they refer to the length of the movie. This search was for: FOTR running hours

But if a post said 'the length of the movie' then it wouldn't come up with that search. The only way to be thorough is to do a week by week search of old archives. It can be entertaining. http://archives.theonering.net/archives/main_news


New Line Suits see FOTR Rough Cut?
August 1st, 2001
Dunno if this is news or not, but I have it on good authority that New Line execs have seen a 3.5 hour director’s cut of Fellowship. Word is that it’s being pared down to 3 hours. I was only expecting 2.5, so that’s good news as far as I’m concerned.

More on the LOTR premiere in LA
August 12th, 2001
Did you know that Peter Jackson sent the latest cut of the film to New Line earlier this week? [Last week that would be, now] 2 hours 45 minutes, I believe.”
