Return of the King, Extended Edition.
50 minutes of additional footage.
I literally got teary-eyed watching the trailer: link, 35mb, 6 mins
I am SO looking forward to this.
oceanic, it's coming out on the 14th. I assume you'll be up for watching it while you're here?

Vital scenes that were added:
# Gandalf/Saruman rematch at Orthanc
# Aragorn reveals himself in Palantir of Orthanc
# Gandalf confronts Witch-King at Minas Tirith
# Voice of Sauron at the Black Gate
# Aragorn taking the Black Ships
# Lots more in the Paths of the Dead

*happy sigh*

Oh, MAN. I can't think of anything better than hunkering down with you two and this movie. :) I'm up for it like 500%.

I dunno, 500% would be, like, 20 hours of movie.
That's a bit much...

hey, man, speak for yourself. I spent an entire weekend once watching the two extended versions (FOTR, TT) and the regular version of this one back to back. ;) The real problem is anticipating what kind of snack food you'll want 17 hours in advance.

# Voice of Sauron at the Black Gate

it's about damn time.

I was pissed that they left that scene out of the theatrical release.

December 14th can't come soon enough. :-)

Now they just need to redo it again and make Sauron into Sauron instead of a damn floating eye-thing.

Not in the books.

One of the oddest changes from the book is that Sauron doesn't have a body; Saruman tells Gandalf that he isn't yet able to 'take physical form'. It's hard to see how this could be true - what use would the Ring be to Sauron, if he didn't have a finger to wear it on? The book makes it very clear that he does have a physical form - 'He has only four [fingers] on the Black Hand, but they are enough', says Gollum in The Two Towers, and this is confirmed explicitly by Tolkien among his letters. Actually, this does seem to be a misinterpretation rather than a deliberate change, because Peter Jackson has himself described Sauron in at least one interview as being no more than a floating eyeball.
