It was the second part of the epic trilogy that really raised the stakes, so where can fans watch The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers online? Prior to The Lord Of The Rings trilogy, Peter Jackson made a name for himself as the director behind gory horror comedies like Braindead. Jackson was initially torn between developing a Lord Of The Rings adaptation or directing a King Kong remake and ultimately opted for the latter. When that project was canceled in 1997, Jackson turned back to working on a two-film Rings adaptation with Miramax.
Miramax later attempted to shrink the entire saga down to a single, two-hour movie, something Jackson felt was impossible. The director then shipped the project to other studios, with New Line Cinema agreeing to make a three-movie Lord Of The Rings adaptation. This was seen as a big risk on the studio’s part since if the first movie bombed, they would have been left with two movies that either would have been shelved or sent straight to video. Luckily, the gamble paid off and the entire franchise proved to be a critical and commercial triumph.
Jackson would later return for The Hobbit trilogy, which lacked the acclaim that greeted its predecessors but still proved a financial success. Fans often debate which entry of the original trilogy is the best, and a strong case could be made for The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers. It fully introduced Andy Serkis’ iconic Gollum, it expanded the scope of the Middle Earth and it ended on the famous Battle of Helm’s Deep. It’s a great movie, simply put, so where can fans who want to revisit it – or seek it out for the first time – find The ord Of The Rings: The Two Towers online?
Sadly, it appears The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers currently isn’t available to stream on platforms like Netflix or Hulu. The movie is available to rent or buy from a number of services, however, including iTunes, Google Play, YouTube, Prime Video, and Vudu. Rental prices typically start from $3.99 while it can cost anywhere between $9.99 to $17.99 to purchase a copy online.
UK fans are in luck, with the entire Lord Of The Rings trilogy currently available to stream on Netflix. With Amazon’s Lord Of The Ring’s series currently in development, it’s likely their streaming service will be the next place to host the movies in future. For fans seeking The Lord Of The Rings: The Two Towers online, it appears renting or buying is currently the only option in the U.S.
