    I really can't say either of us were right, cause we both didn't know. The boss of the house also gave me a humorous verbal thrashing for not knowing, she is a LOTR nut and is a bit fanatical about it.

    PJ wanted a little more time for TTT, but New Line said that it needed to be done by Christmas, so that is the release date as of now.

    Heh. My "boss of the house" (who is also a LOTR fanatic)was doing yoga at the time and annoyed that I interupted for such a silly question.

    Isn't the five disc set exactly the same as the 4-disc set with just the National Geographic documentary added in?

    Oops, didn't read the opening of this thread I thnk the five disc set will be the version I go for; but if I buy the super-deluxe versions of every film I am definitely not going to want to buy a collected edition trilogy later on.

    This is intresting. I don't remeber if anyone else recalls, but back before Fellowship of the Ring opened, you could join the official fan club at a premium price, and get your name added to the credits of the DVD release. I believe it was 150.00 for Fellowship, 200.00 for Fellowship and Two Towers, and 250.00 for all three. Well, someone over at HTF.com posted the email he received:

    Dear Charter Member:

    I am pleased to report that the 19-minute credit scroll of Charter Members names was so impressive that director Peter Jackson wanted to expand it by placing original scored music behind the names as they scroll on-screen. Members names are ordered alphabetically by last name and integrate seamlessly into the format and style of the rest of the production credits. (Just for your information, the scroll of Charter Members names is twice the length of the credit scroll for the films production team!) This exciting addition will certainly reflect the Charter Member name scroll as an important and integrated part of the films credits.

    As always, there is a cost to making something bigger and better and this situation is no exception. The space needed to add a 19-minute musical score to the name scroll and the time required for Howard Shore to score and produce additional music -- means that neither space nor time was available to place the Charter Member name scroll on the first Theatrical Release DVD (due August 6th). When New Line Cinema and Jackson originally approved the project, neither realized these space/time constraints would occur. Everyone regrets this, but also promises that the final result will be far more impressive than first planned. As promised, the enhanced-format name scroll with music will appear on all domestic and international versions of the Special Expanded Edition DVD and the Collectors DVD Gift Set -- both due November 12th

    The first DVD is a two-disc set that contains the theatrical release of the film and a selection of special footage and features including: interviews with cast members; an exclusive 10-minute behind-the-scenes preview of The Two Towers; and a sneak peek at the two DVD releases coming in November. Due August 6th for $US29.95. (Does not contain Charter Member name scroll.)


    Can you believe that, 19 minutes of names that required a special score to be produced. And that the scroll is twice the length of the film's production credits scroll. That's just crazy, I wonder how many people ended up taking advantage of this offer, and how many will be appearing on all three.

    That's amazing. I guess in August I'll just rent the DVD then, (since I've never even seen the movie) and watch its paltry special features...then in November I'll buy the Special Edition along with the DVD of AOTC.

    I'll pass on spending an extra twenty dollars for bookends.

    Only small problem is if you want all the extra features for the movie, you have to buy both DVD sets. None of the special features on the August 6th release, will appear on the November 12th release.
