The general thinking is that they'll hit with the theatrical/DVD/Blu-ray release of The Hobbit.

Would be nice if they also provide some more definitive statement about when the EE version (or better yet, an improved EE version) would come out too by the time this set arrives.

That's a good point considering they did give notice when the theatrical DVDs were released. But given that New Line Home Home Entertainment is now under new stewardship I'm not going to hold out too much hope.

Judging from the description at WBshop.com, it sounds like this will be a 7 disc set. 1 for each movie. Digital copies of each movie. And then a bonus disc featuring the relevant material from the three original 2-disc theatrical releases. No word on the technical specs yet.

It'll take a lot for me to part with more $$$ for this material. I already bought it twice. I'll need BD EE. Then that'll be IT.

No way I'm springing for the theatrical versions. My SD copies will do fine until the EEs come out.

It'll require some self-restraint and discipline. But that'll be my plan of attack, too.

I understand about "future searches" and all...but I LIKED the original title, too! Posted Image

There's Jessie the yodeling cowgirl. Bullseye, he's Woody's horse. Pete the old prospector. And, Woody, the man himself.Of course, it's time for Woody's RoundUp. He's the very best! He's the rootinest, tootinest cowboy in the wild, wild west!

First up, a cool bit of Blu-ray release news: Warner Home Video has apparently leaked the street date for The Lord of the Rings Trilogy on their Warner Shop site.

If these dates hold true, look for the Rings box on 11/3 (SRP $99.98) featuring the theatrical editions of all three films. Extras will reportedly include some of the LOTR.net featurettes, as well as trailers and TV spots.

Each film will also offer 2-3 documentaries, including Welcome to Middle Earth, Quest for the Ring and A Passage to Middle Earth on Fellowship, Starz' In the Set and Return to Middle Earth on Two Towers and The Quest Fulfilled: A Director's Vision, A Filmmaker's Journey and the National Geographic special on King.

You can pre-order the set from Amazon (for just $69.98)

At a $70 street price, it will be easier for me to pass on this release and wait for the Extended Editions. The price needs to drop quite a lot to consider a purchase. I will plan on renting these instead.

I am in a quandary here. I had every intention of passing on the purchase of this set but renting it and waiting for the EE, as many are doing. But I really want the special features this set is advertising if they are also in high def. i particularly liked the "Quest for the Ring", and, huge fan though I may be I believe I actually have not seen a couple of these. I might want to have them, too.
I guess my big question would be, what is the possibility of the "mega set" that Jackson has talked about for the EE in blu to actually include EVERYTHING concerning these movies, including these features again? I know they didn't do that with the SD--you had to buy both to get all the special features. But it wasn't called the "mega-set". I've no need for digital copies, and I would hate to buy the theatrical ( as someone on Amazon said "abridged") versions of this movie just for the features. That's just too much cash on limited incomes. Wonder if the Costa Bates documentaries will be on the mega set too. (rhetorical question--unless someone's actually read something....?)

No. I can't do it. Money is tight, but MUST have the complete scenes of hobbits in Hobbiton and the gift-giving scene and some glimpses of the Houses of Healing. The tale is just incomplete without that.

Obviously I don't know for sure but at $100 MSRP for these three movies, it doesn't seem like they're charging more for the digital copies. If they were available separately and had no digital copy, I can't imagine that they'd only be charging $30 MSRP for each one when it's probably the crown jewel of the New Line catalog and a guaranteed seller.
