    As first reported here by Aaron, ROTK is coming out May 25th and I think we should plan a trilogy party! Here's the full article......

    The King makes his return in filmmaker Peter Jackson's stunning conclusion to The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, arriving on DVD and VHS on May 25, 2004. The home video debut of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King will follow the groundbreaking success of the multi-tiered platform releases of both The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers, and will be available on a two-disc DVD and VHS for $29.95 and $24.97, respectively. A special extended edition of The Return of the King will be released at a later date.

    "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is the crowning glory of a truly unparalleled filmmaking achievement," said Stephen Einhorn, president and chief operating officer of New Line Home Entertainment. "The two-DVD edition includes the award-winning theatrical epic as well as hours of behind-the- scenes bonus materials."

    Based on J.R.R. Tolkien's epic adventure of good versus evil, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King will be released separately in both widescreen and fullscreen versions, each including a second disc offering hours of additional content. Disc Two will feature behind-the-scenes specials, featurettes, theatrical trailers, TV spots, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy supertrailer, a preview of the upcoming The Lord of the Rings- based video game from Electronic Arts and a link to exclusive online content about the motion picture trilogy.

    If I'm here and available I vote to have this at my place. I'm currently working on my home theater remodel in my garage which will include a 9' diagonal viewing screen. There will be couch/theater chair seating for 7 and I'll probably pick up some of those video game rockers for a few folks up front. Let me know what you guys think.

    Might be a slight change of plans. :( Theater is still under construction and a May 25th deadline may be unrealistic. In fact I know it is. So I'll have to do a different release party.

    Very understandable Jake, Thanks for offering to host the party in the first place. Maybe we could have the Star Wars DVD release party at your place, That would be cool. :)
