The release dates of the Lord of the Rings trilogy
The version of the film saga of The Lord of the Rings that will await us in cinemas should be the remastered one in 4K supervised directly by Peter Jackson, following the following schedule:

- from 27 to 30 July: The Lord of the Rings – The two Towers
- from 31 July to 4 August: The Lord of the Rings – The Return of the King
Obviously these dates, which have yet to be fully formalized, could undergo variations given the slow return to normality and the full functionality of cinemas.
