    "Well, Peter Jackson has said many times that Helms Deep WILL be 45 minutes of uninterrupted footage, so I'm not too skeptical."

    Nope, thats internet bollocks!! PJ recently dismissed all that. He has stated that Helms deep will be seen in the last 1 3rd of the film, and takes up 15 minutes, while being intercut by other things.

    Honestly 45 minutes of non stop helms deep would be rather boring!

    Good that PJ clarified this early so people wont be dissapointed when it doesnt happen!

    Peaaaaaaaaaace outtttttt mon!

    Actually, he said that the fighting will take up 10-15 minutes, but the actual scenes in Helms Deep - from the time they arrive until they leave - will be about 30 to 45 minutes.

    Helm's Deep in the last 1/3 of the film - I tihnk that's some more Bollucks! Helms deep is in the first half of TTT (book) - He (PJ) can't lengthen the start and cut the end off to put on the ROTK. He's already taken the Amon Hen fight away.

    Helm's Deep wont be in the last 1/3 of the movie!!!!!!!

    Helms Deep won't be in the last 1/3 of the movie?

    Uh, yes it will. In case you haven't noticed, some things have changed in the movie adaptions.

    oh ok, I guess we only have to wait a month and a half to really find out :D

    I called into the Whitcoulls store in West City and the girl there looked blankly at me for like 10seconds after I said I wanted to put my name odwn for a pre-order for the LOTR special edition DVD.

    She then clicked and pulled out a skungy half ripped piece of paper and said put your name and phone number on this and we'll call ya.

    I was like: "right, this can't be it!"

    So I then asked if it was gonna be $199.00 and she said the one with the bok ends was and the other without the bookends was going to be like $79.00. So I said I wanted the expensive one.

    I heard there was also a set of the Decipher LOTR Trading cards in the pack too.

    But it's a 5 CD DVD set with the National Geographic thing aswell - so I'm happy. And these weta workshop book ends of the Argonaths sound pretty cool.

    How much did you pay?

    far out that's expensive

    Atlantic Dvd

    127.95 plus shipping sounds better, esp if you buy more than one thing at the same time.
