2021 is the 20th anniversary of the premiere of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the first of three original adaptations of the works by JRR Tolkien what Peter jackson brought to the big screen in the early 2000s. Years later he would do the same with his The Hobbit trilogy, although with much less impact. Naturally, the film industry wants to celebrate this anniversary in style, including reruns of films in theaters.
According to the data collected by ComScoreMovies, this weekend, the queen of the Spanish box office has been The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, the central film of the trilogy in which we would see the incontestable battle of the Helm’s abism.
With 52,853 spectators and more than € 287,000 raised, the revival of The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers has surpassed the most recent premiere films, and that the figures are far from what they could have been if we did not have the pandemic on our hands.
The impeccable workmanship of the lord of the rings trilogy took Tolkien’s stories to a new level, bringing them closer to a whole new generation of fans who fell in love at first glance with the Middle Earth forever, good proof of them is that almost 20 years later, and with a pandemic on their hands, one of his films continues to dominate the box office in this way. In fact, last weekend it was The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which rose to the crown.
Will we soon have The Return of the King repeating the success?
