Check this crap out... From NZ's http://www.stuff.co.nz/inl/index/0,1...714a11,FF.html Peter Jackson told The Evening Post this week the special edition - "I don't really want to call it the director's cut" - would follow the release of a DVD and video version in August. These will be the same length as the cinema version. The extra footage wouldn't mean more blood and gore as some Lord Of The Rings fans had speculated. "It's all drama. There is this thing on the Net about all this gory stuff I was supposed to have shot, but I didn't. We were going for a (censor's rating) of PG13 and you can't waste time shooting stuff that you know is going to get cut," he said. "It will tee everybody up before the release of The Two Towers (in December)." The special edition DVD is also likely to include the first part of a documentary by Wellington film maker Costa Botes on the making of the $650 million project. So does this mean we can't buy the DVD right when it comes out? We have to wait for the longer version? I don't want the theatrical version! Bring on the length!
