Two Towers poster Can't Post

The main Two Towers film poster has a large moon in the background. I have always wondered why as it seems to have nothing to do with the film.
Any ideas why its used?

The moon originally had a larger part in the film. [In reply to] Can't Post

As I recall Jackson meant to show correct and distinct moon phases, not only to give a sense of the passage of time. but also to show how and when the separate threads of narrative coincided in time. However, that concept was abandoned during editing.

Because Minas Morgul used to be called Minas Ithil - [In reply to] Can't Post

- which translates as 'the tower of the moon'? I don't know.
