The Digital Bits has a big write-up today on what's going to be on both LOTR discs.

The big news is that the quick release version of the DVD in August will have the theatrical cut of the film and the expanded 4-disc set in Novemeber will not. The November set will have the director's cut only.

Some will say it's double dipping. But for this, I don't mind. It's not like Almost Famous, where the first DVD was made entirely superflous by the Bootley DVD.

I don't mind this setup at all. I'd go nuts if they made me wait until Novemeber to get any version at all, and I do want to be able to show people the theatre version so they can see what the hubbub was all about. Then for the hardcore geeks we can have nirvana in November.

In fact, it was announced that the august 2dvd version will have the theatrical cut and a bonus disc with behind the scenes stuff.

The november 4dvd version will only have the extended version (added scenes include galadriel giving the gifts to all of the fellowship, her deal with gimli, more stuff in the shire and so on)
The three additional discs will contain none of the stuff that is on the 2dvd set. There will be very different behind the scenes stuff, including the national geographic dvd that is out now i believe..

So, they try to go out of their way to make both versions appealing and different. Fans ofcourse will have to get both..Or the gift box of the 4dvd set which will include some art and stuff like that.

Anyone heading back to the theatres this weekend to see the selected scenes from the Two Towers? I'm going to try.

Hell yes. I have a hunch there's going to be more than a couple of people doing that, as it's being promoted hard. They took a full page in the Chicago Sun Times weekend section to advert the Two Towers scenes being added.

Edit post-viewing: GO SEE THIS NOW! I want someone to knock me out and put me in a coma until December when Two Towers comes out, as it looks so insanely good I don't know if waiting and maintaining my sanity will be available options for me.

I went to see LotR for the 4th time last night, just for enjoying the movie and the extra footage of Triple T.

THe movie still rules, yet I don't wanna be put into a coma till end of the year. I NEED to buy myself a copy of the dvd sets in august and november (tie-in to the original subject)

On the subject of the Two Towers footage, nice to show lots of cool shots but not give away anything.
All characters that we didn't know yet from the first movie look extremely good.

Actually that is something that I loved about the first movie as well. All characters look pretty much like I always imagined them, maybe obvious as they used the semi-official LotR artists, yet very cool still.
