First of all, if you haven't yet seen the Two Towers trailer, attached to the end of FOTR, see it now. Best. Trailer. Ever. Now, onto the DVD news, (the link is here). There will be two editions of the DVD, one normal edition, and one super special edition, in November. The latter will contain the extra footage: A new addition to the opening sequence in which Bilbo provides background on Hobbits and their history in voice-over as he writes his memoirs. A new introduction to Samwise Gamgee, seen in his capacity as a gardener. A scene taking place at the Green Dragon Inn, which introduces us to the camaraderie of the Hobbits (we see them singing together) and sets up the geopolitics of the story. The Hobbits witnessing the departure of the Elves from Middle Earth on the way to Bree. Aragorn watching over the sleeping Hobbits, singing the ballad of Beren and Luthien to himself in the night. Aragorn at his mother's grave, in which we learn that he was raised by Elves and that Sauron has long hunted him. Two new moments during the departure from Rivendale, one in which we see Arwen's emotional reaction to Aragorn's leaving, and another in which Elrond sees the Fellowship off. A scene with the Fellowship in the mines of Moria, in which we learn how the Dwarves themselves unleashed the fire-demon that eventually destroyed them. A scene at Lothlorien, where Galadriel bestows upon each of the Fellowship a gift which will play an important role later in the Trilogy. And finally, more footage of the battle at Amon Hen. This is not particularly bloody footage, but its addition will likely result in this cut of the film receiving an R-rating. I'll certainly be buying both, but I think most people will probably wait until the SE. Your thoughts?
