Saw it 3 times already...great movie.  In my opinion better than either Star Wars trilogy (yes even the original one).  I have faith in Episode III though...

Malaysia has the bootleg...not the Screener transfer though (TTT version was excellent quality and a "steal" at $10), I think I'll wait to see if the screener comes

Ancient thread. Smell the must.

Anyway, some screencaps of the extended Return of the King.
Slight spoilers.

Cool.  Thanks Ben!  I've been meaning to bump this thread up for a while now, in giddy anticipation of the Extended Edition's upcoming release.  What's the date on that again?  I've been holding off on watching the previous two EE's for a while, just so I can watch all the EE's together in a day long marathon when ROTK finally gets released.  Can't wait to see all the added footage.  Gonna be a thing of beauty...   8)

Have I mentioned how I wished Peter Jackson had directed the Prequels?  Or how I wish the Prequels were even half as good as the LOTR Trilogy was?  Or that the LOTR Trilogy was everything that I was hoping the Prequels would be?

Yeah, I thought so...   :-\

Im drooling with anticipation like everyone else on this.  Looking forward to Christopher Lee footage the most.  On a side note, I hope all the BS about rights can be settled so Jackson can film the Hobbit some day.  It is such a great stand alone part of Middle Earth.  Plus it would look awesome with Jackson filming.

I think this will be available December 14, so I may ask for it for a Christmas gift. Just have to make sure they (my mother) gets the giftset with the Minas Tirith stashbox.

I'm going to watch the Two Towers EE tonight, in my giddy anticipation. ;D

Me too, along with the Witch King-Gandalf fight, the Mouth of Sauron, the House of Healing, etc., etc., etc.  ;)

I also hope they put Chris Lee in the credits with a drawing like they did for all the other players in the original release.  Was kind of pissed he wasn't included.  Hopefully PJ makes up for it.

Cool that they are bringing back Saruman for the extended release. I wonder if that means they'll include the "WScouring of the Shire"?

I can't wait for this one, either!

No Scouring of the Shire, and I can agree with Jackson on that decision, I can do with out seeing it.  It would probably add another hour of time to it and its not necessary

Yeah, PJ never filmed the Scouring of the Shire.  His homage to it was in FOTR when Frodo looks into the pool in and sees Hobbits (including Sam) being rounded up by Orcs.

Plus this shot is probably his homage to the wheel that ultimately ends Saruman's life in the book.

Just in case you didn't see it in the DVD thread, a 6 minute preview of ROTK: EE.
