Default LORD OF THE RINGS Extended Due 2010

In an interview with Collider.com, Peter Jackson announced that the extended editions of the Lord of the Rings trilogy will come out a year after the theatrical version comes out later this year.

Like many of you, I refuse to double-dip on this purchase. Yes, I can wait a year for the extended editions.

Wow, only a year. New Line really wants to make some extra cash.

I'd rather have the extended versions, so I'll pass on the regular ones. At least it's only a year...

as odd as it may seem, i'm kind of looking forward to having both the theatrical and extended versions in my collection

but the theatrical probably won't get nearly as much play

I know there are other members here who can make sense of it but..WHY WOULD YOU ANNOUNCE THE DOUBLE DIP BEFORE RELEASING YOUR FIRST RELEASE??!!!?? I was looking to get the theatrical versions but with this statement from Jackson, I will not be buying the theatricals at all and, easily, wait for the EE's. Glad to hear the EE's are coming much sooner than later.

PJ/New Line announced the Extended Edition DVD before the theatrical cut was released on the format, and it worked out pretty well for them. If I remember it correctly, announcing the double-dip in advance earned them a lot of good will from the home-theater enthusiast crowd.

All it's doing is saying, "Hey, if all you want are the movies in the theater, that's fine, here they are, but if you're also interested in behind-the-scenes stuff and want more of Middle Earth, there's another option."

I'd rather get the extended versions of everything so I think I'll wait for those to come out rather than buy the theatrical blurays when those come.

I always planned to wait, but I will rent them at least to watch this year. Just like they did on DVD, I bet they will do a trilogy gift set with both editions maybe by 2013. I'll probably buy that, but def getting the EE's next year.
