The Lord of the Rings Movies You Don’t Want Are Coming to Blu-Ray


?Yes, Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy is coming to Blu-ray in April. Now, I know a lot of you have been waiting for this, and I certainly understand that unlike so many other Blu-ray offerings, a truly hi-def Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and Return of the King would likely be fantastic. So what’s the problem? The problem, Tolkien nerds, is that New Line is only releasing the theatrical cut of the movies, not the extended versions — which are obviously going to be released later in 2010 (or worst care scenario early 2011). And since the movie set is currently $69 — on sale at amazon, as opposed to a suggested retail price of $99 — that’s a hell of a lot of money for a movie box set you know you’ll have to buy again when those extended versions come out. The trilogy hits in April, but if you can wait a while longer, I’d say you’d be wise to do so. (Via Crunchgear)
