It looks like Peter Jackson had a few things to say about the second film in the LORD OF THE RINGS series, while talking to a bookstore crowd in New York recently.

According to Moriarty, an Ain't It Cool news tipster who attended the event, Jackson said by mid-March the trailer for THE LORD OF THE RINGS: TWO TOWERS will be spliced onto the ends of the already released prints of THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING. What's more, the trailer will be almost twice as long as normal movie trailers, clocking in at three and a half minutes.

Jackson also said he's heading back to New Zealand in June to shoot more scenes with Elijah Wood and Sean Astin and the creepy Gollum, played in semi-CGI form by Andy Serkis. According to an interview in the NEW YORK POST, Serkis said about his role, "I play him as if he's a junkie and his fix is the ring. I've tried to make him as human as possible in that way."
