Lord of the Rings Extra Footage!

Most of you know that next week, Lord of the rings will be released on DVD. What some of you may not know is that in November, they will be releasing a 4 disc special edition with 30 minutes of extra footage worked back into the original film such as Frodo and Sam seing the pilgrimage of the elves at night.

Now there's a trailer on line, if you'll simply follow this link, you can experience some of the new footage for yourself.

Click here!

Click on the extended DVD trailer and prepare to wait.

There are three different releases planned.
1. The double disc that's going to be released August 6th.
2. The four disc box set with the 30 mins of new material which will be released November 12th.
3. The collector's boxset which will contain the 30 mins of new material plus the Aragonath bookends and other, not yet specified, surprises. This edition will also be released November 12th.

The third edition will be the most expensive one at about the double price of the double disc. The price difference between the first and the second edition will not be that big though.

I was over at nationalgeographic.com a while back and I was surprised to see them promoting their documentary.

It had to do with the languages that Tolkien invented, which he didn't really, having based them on little known languages.

four disc box? why do they release the film on 4 disc if there's only 30min extra?
does it really take that much space?

I have a special hope for the eventual release of a boxed set which covers all three films...

But with a little something extra, which could even be hinted at in the trailer for the extra-footage DVD set...

Imagine purchasing the deluxe DVD boxed set of all three films, and when you open it up, there lies an extra DVD which is titled 'The Hobbit'...!

And when you play it, it IS 'The Hobbit', filmed in secrecy during the filming of the trilogy!

Think about it...

It shouldn't be impossible that they get enough money from the trilogy and finance The Hobbit that way. I mean, the first movie did really well in the boxoffice, and the next two will most likely do very well too. Probably better, considering it will be even more action and fx in parts 2 & 3 (which is what the public likes )

The likelyhood that they will make it, if they get the funds needed, is another matter. I won't hold my breath...

Cost 300 million to make all 3 movies

fellowship made 300 million domestically alone

so that right there covers the entire trilogy

internationally i think it pulled in another 200 mill
so there your advertising fees

so basically the next two films are pure profit

By our estimates, the LOTR trilogy will have brought around 3.5 - 4.0 billion dollars in, between Box Office, rentals, purchases, and product tie-ins/licencing to New Line and any other rights holders...

Not bad for half billion investment.
