From www.dvdanswers.com :

Just a quick bit of news concerning The Two Towers DVD. It appears that we might be seeing the release of the theatrical version a little earlier than last year with Fellowship of the Ring. Virgin Megastore are taking preorders for the disc and list the date of release as the 30th June. That would be well over a month earlier than before. We'll keep you posted.

This seems to refer to the R2 release, but...who knows?

I was referred to this tidbit from www.theonering.net , where they imply that some online sites have listed the title for pre-order.

Seems a bit early, eh? (Not that I'd complain!)

I would not be surprised at all if this date is about right for a worldwide release, although the region 1 release date would be July 1st instead, seeing as June 30th is a Monday.

By releasing it a month earlier they're giving some more breathing space between the two releases, which will perhaps make people who would have waited for the EE buy the theatrical release as well.

(I'll buy both releases even if they were released on the same day, but there are several other threads concerning people's reason for buying both or for buying only one of the releases so I won't comment on that here)

I thought the August release date of Fellowship last year was kind of late.

Aye, I expect that'll probably be the international date, or at least very close to it. The UK don't tend to get things much earlier than the US, though we had Minority Report a month earlier so you never know Posted Image Still, can't wait for it, though I'll probably hold out for the extended version because I thought some of the editing in the theatrical cut was rubbish!

I'll get them both, as I did with FELLOWSHIP and will do for RETURN OF THE KING.

We can only hope this means an earlier releae of the Extended Edition of The Two Towers.

I'll probably end up buying both. I was only going to get the EE of Fellowship, but when the 2 disc came out and it was only $16, I just couldn't wait any longer to see it. I'm sure it will be the same way with TTT.

The PR company that deals with EiV (the distributor for Two Towers in the UK) has confirmed with us that the 30th June is the current releasedate, so I would expect the region 1 release around the same time. Goodo!

My only hope is that the Two Towers extended release be at the very least on par with the Fellowship of the Ring extended release in terms of breadth and quality.

I thought so, too, but now that I think about it, wasn't FOTR still playing in first-run theatres in March of last year? I think I remember that they started the TTT preview thing on the end of FOTR in mid-March--only five months before the 2-disc theatrical DVD was to be released. . .

Same here but I may buy the two disc and then sell it by the time the extended cut comes out. I'm just wondering if they're going to be able to fill out the supplements as much as they did with Fellowship.

I just wish it came out on Tuesday this week

The only way I'll get the 2 disc in August if it's for free, something like the Blockbuster Rental Card deal. Otherwise, I can wait. And I love the movie, don't get me wrong, I just can't see paying for the theatrical when I know I will only re-watch the EE.

Thanks to those Oscar screeners, DVD-rips of Two Towers are already all over the Internet.
