‘RING’ LEADER

Wizards and jewelry and elves, oh my! The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring continued its reign over the Middle-earth of video rentals and DVD sales for a second consecutive week. Peter Jackson’s adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic tale trounced the chart premieres of four other titles, including the Eddie Murphy-Robert De Niro buddy comedy Showtime and the Oscar-nominated In the Bedroom. Lord have mercy!
