Is it midnight yet?? Dang it, I wanna see the screenshots! :D
I've decided to not go for the 5-disc gift set. I'll get the theatrical cut and the 4-disc SE. I don't really need the NG special, and while the Argonath bookends are cool as hell, I wouldn't really have much use for them.
I wish all marketing-driven release were as consumer-minded as this one. You know what would have sucked? If both the regular and SE releases had the same extras. Instead, we get brand-new material with the SE, thus more value for our money.
1. Regular theatrical cut, xcoming in August 6th. It's available in anamorphic widescreen (YEAH BABY!) and P&S. 2. Extended cut, coming sometime in November (the 12th, I think.) It'll be available in two forms: A box containing the movie and the extras, and a deluxe set containing the movie...
