    I'm sure I heard something about a big announcement of the LOTR details today a few weeks ago.

    Was I dreaming?

    Does this mean The Digital Bits site will be operational again? All I keep getting is "The Digital Bits is moving!"

    Pointless tangent: If it said "The Digital Bits ARE moving," it would sound right but but be incorrect.

    Try refreshing the Digital Bits' website. I definitely do not just get the "Moving" message.

    Man I can't wait to see this! It's gonna rock! As for the TTT trailer...actually and this is from a reliable source..it's not really a trailer...the last reel of film is to be changed on all LOTR Fellowships and a total of 3.5 minutes of footage from TTT will play at the very end of the Fellowship. I have a friend who works in a theater and that was the information that they got! Sounds like to me what will happen will be it will extend the end of the movie by 3.5 minutes and will show the beginning of TTT.

    If you're interested in the TTT footage being added to FotR this week, you may want to pop over to AICN, where Harry & Moriarty have both seen and reviewed it. It sounds spectacular.

    I will bet all of you a year's worth of DVD purchases that the LOTR: FOTR announcement will include both Widescreen and Fullscreen versions of the disc, a la Harry Potter!

    Any takers? :p)

    I hate rumours, but I have read several places that a VHS only release will happen in July followed by a massive special edition DVD in November.
    PLEASE dont let it be true. I will take a bare bones edition on the same date as VHS.[​IMG] [​IMG]
