well i just wanted post a few things about the upcomming DVD release of this movie ...

on 8/8/02 they are releasing the orginal Theatrical version of LOTR on DVD and VHS, DVD will be 22.99 and the VHS will be $16.99

now some time in November they will be releasing a "Special Edtion" 4 disc DVD set which will run for 59.99 (as of right now)that will include the following:

-1 hr of extra footage that was cut from the theatrical release
(pretty much makes the running time 4 hrs)
-collector's edition Statue.
-and much much more.

heh i cant wait for the special edition myself ... that movie 0wned me ... speaking of which i still need to finish the books.

IGN did a preview (or maybe it was just a news story) about the two editions a few months back. I'm holding out until the special edition is released in November (right around my birthday :)).

I hate it how dvd companies release bare bones version of movies, and then a "special" edition a few months/years later. I'd rather they just eliminate the special editions and wait until their product is finished before releasing it.

I agree with Gabriel. Nothing pisses me off more than buying a DVD and then 2 months later you see the "special edition".
I will wait for the special edition this time. Even though this is one of the best movies I've ever seen based on the best books I've ever read!!
