Thanks. At least now, I have an idea.

All I get from Amazon is "Availability: NOT YET RELEASED: The studio is currently not producing this title on DVD, but to be notified when it is available, enter your e-mail address at right. You'll also be voting for this release; we'll let the studio know how many customers are waiting for this title."

I even went to New Line's website to contact them...no contact form, no email, no nothin'.

Yep, all I can find is December, however I did find a few spoilers as to what's extra...

Spoiler:
MAJOR EE SPOILERS BELOW

- Shots of Saruman on top of Orthanc, saying things like "something festers in the heart of middle-earth" , "you are all going to die", " I want no pity or mercy!", saruman shooting flames from his staff (I know this sounds kinda hokey but I thought it looked pretty good)

- Frodo/Sam/Gollum approaching the crossroads. we see sam looking at something and then there is a closeup (pics of which have already appeared online) of the statue's head and it's crown

- frodo/sam in orc costumes marching with orcs, big orc yelling "move on!"

- Merry saying "I know there isn't much hope, I know I can't do much. I'm just a hobbit. But I want to help"

- Mouth of sauron rides out, there is a closeup on his mouth (which looked pretty gross) as he says " I have a token I was bidden to show thee" and then he reveals frodo's mithril vest and throws it down to the ground. then there is a closeup of pippin who says "frodo..."

- Eowyn in bed at edoras, Aragorn is walking away from her but before he can get too far she reaches out and takes his hand.

- eomer grieving for eowyn (seen in theatrical trailer)

- sam in mordor looking at the dark, red lit sky telling mr. frodo that he sees a light.

- aragorn picks up flaming palantir and says something, the only word I caught was "Elendil"

- gandalf riding up to witch king making threats, something about sending it into the abyss, witch king responds with his own threat while his sword becomes enflamed.

- misc. new shots of the siege of gondor, orcs using small battering ram, fell beast swooping in and picking up soldiers

- eowyn fighting gothmog (the one eyed orc captain)

- faramir telling pippin about his childhood, boromir, and his father. pippin says that faramir has " a different kind of strength" and that his father will see it eventually.

- Eowyn and Faramir hold hands and nuzzle at the houses of healing (women in the audience went especially nuts for this scene.)

- aragorn/legolas/gimli run away from an avalanche of skulls in the paths of the dead



Can't wait, anyone else going to try watch all 3 extended editions in one day then , I reckon I can do it if I start around 7 in the morning, taking in food and piss breaks along the way...

I am definatly going for the all 3 extended versions fest when this comes out.

Though what this does need is more Undead vs Orc fighting.

I have the other two extended versions. Obviously I'm getting this one as well.

Go read a book without pictures

I wasn't too happy with the extended version of the first movie. The extended beginning of it was absolutely boring, at least I found it boring. My friends liked it, but then again, I've read The Hobbit and the LotR books and they haven't, so I already knew all those facts about Hobbits.

Haven't seen the extended version of the second movie, though.

The beginning makes perfect sense (especially to a person who hasn't read the books), so later when Biblo talks about finishing his book, you're not thinkin' "When did he start writin' a book?" The scene where he started A Hobbitt's Tale wasn't in the theatrical release.
