    I've just about worn out my FOTR disk waiting for TTT to be released.

    Then I checked www.videoeta.com and they tell me I wont see it until June! I may be mistaken but I thought FOTR was available earlier in the year than June... are they listing the 4 disk EE for TTT?

    Anyone have any info on when TTT will be released? I've held off asking this question as long as I could. :b

    Actually, I think you'll have to wait until August, just like last year for FOTR.

    Well, if you're an Academy member you wouldn't have to wait until June.

    (I'm going to forego the obvious reference to bootlegs since you'll just have to trust that whoever is in possession of a Two Towers screener is actually an Academy member [​IMG])

    June 30th for the 2-disc is the rumoured date.
    the 4-disc is still set for some time in November.

    This date for TTT is at least a few days earlier than the 2-disc FOTR release. That came out in August. [​IMG]

    I held out for the 4 disc set last time and by gum I'll do it again this year! It'll be hard, but I can do it. I know I can and I just have to keep telling myself that. Not literally of course.

    Whoa! My receipt was dated August 1, 2002 but I could have sworn I preordered more than 5 days in advance! (which is why I was guessing the 30th)

    Guess I must have waited until the "last minute"... [​IMG]

    I have some kind of anti-rental gene that prohibits me from renting DVDs. I can't explain it, but I hope to be cured of my ailement eventually. No rush though. I just go cold turkey until November when I bum rush that shweet TT 4 disc set.

    An on-screen reminder below the widescreen horizon that appears about every 15 minutes on a free DVD currently in the loop(of course we're talking optimum screener here, not VHS junk) vs. waiting until June or November.

    I guess it depends on how you weigh your appreciation of the LOTR movies, but screeners never hurt me none. [​IMG]

    Impatient as I am, I will end up with both versions again. No biggie though, I already have 6 different copies of Star Wars Trilogy, why should the best fantasy trilogy of all time be any different. Sigh... my poor wallet....

    Well, they're really two different movies, if the distinction between the theatrical and extended versions of FOTR is any signal. I'm happy to own both, and just revisited both of them within the last month.

    I bought the theatrical release of FOTR in August and sold it to a local shop when I bought the EE. I'll do the same with TTT.



    Gary,

    We must be related, because I have that gene too. Maybe it's just an anti-Blockbuster gene which is the only rental joint in town.
