    According to the Digital Bits! Look under the daily column for 2/11. [​IMG]
    p.s. If this comes about, I wonder what we'll find to complain about?[​IMG]

    Why don't we just skip a step and
    start the "It won't play on my player list" now?

    Im glad I bought my 5-Disc changer! [​IMG]
    But Im wondering why 4 discs. I expected a 3-disc. 2 for the movie and one for extras. If its 4, this means 2 discs full of extras. Now thats awesome!

    Could be that DVD-5's are being used to allow 10 GB to be split up between two DVD's instead of one 9 GB DL disc
    Hey...who is to object to New Line upping the quality? [​IMG]

    Two DVDs to rule them all
    One DVD to find them
    One DVD to bring them all
    And in a cardboard foldout case bind them

    I will happily purchase both the movie only (for my 2 month quick fix) and the SE versions of this title. [​IMG][​IMG]

    My friend and I were discussing the fact that by the time RotK comes out on DVD, we will definitely be bankrupt and own ~100 versions of the film, hehe.

    Yay, this is surely going to be one great disc. But let hope the extra are not a virtual tour of Moria or play with dolls with the Balrog ^^. Just kidding to both Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter, but still hehe.

    We're just so spoiled... soon we're going to complain when movies are released only as 3-disc sets. [​IMG]

    Will they put the movie on 2 discs? It should be able to fit on one disc. If it will be 1/2 an hour longer, that is less than 3 1/2 hours. Why shouldn't they be able to fit it on one disc? I hope it is on one disc so I don't have to change a disc just to watch the rest of the movie.

    It probably can't fit because of commentaries and audio mixes, etc.

    I'd rather have the film on 2 DVDs than
    have them try to cram it all on one DVD,
    along with commentray tracks and various
    audio formats.
    But, I have a 5 disc DVD player. [​IMG]
    At some point convience must be sacrificed
    to preserve the quality of the presentation,
    and keep the DVD glich-free.
    (Both Lawrence of Arabia and
    The Bridge Over The River Kwai do
    lock up on my other player, which is a lesser model,
    and I have to wonder if it isn't because both
    DVDs push the RSDL to its limits...in fact,
    The Bridge Over The River Kwai is
    just "DL" and not "RSDL" because they could fit
    a bit more data if they didn't "RS" it.)
