Okay Frodo fans, you asked for it and you're going to get it - a theatrical screening of The Lord of the Rings™ trilogy. These are the remastered director's cut versions, which means each film will have an additional hour or so of deleted and extended scenes (Maybe it's just us, but weren't those films awfully long to begin with?). Director Peter Jackson has taped introductions to each of the films from the set of The Hobbit, which he's currently filming.
We're hoping the extra scenes will include lots more Orlando Bloom and not any more shots of those huge, hairy Hobbit feet.
There's only one screening per film (The Fellowship of the Ring screens June 14, The Two Towers screens June 21 and The Return of the King screens June 28). All of this is in anticipation of the late June release of The Lord of the Rings™ The Motion Picture Trilogy (Extended Edition) on Blu-ray. The package includes 15 discs with 26 hours of extras, including interviews and behind-the-scenes documentaries, in addition to the more than 11 hours of movies.
