As I'm sure most of you know they'll be releasing a special edition DVD of the Fellowship Of The Ring with an extra 30 minutes of deleted footage around November. Now since I heard that I’ve been very curious to know what scenes they’d be adding.. well this site seems to reveal quite a lot of that with many LARGE pictures.

There looks like they'll be quite a few good scenes which were from the book but cut off in the movie that we'll finally get to see on the DVD. Namely the gift giving scene with weapons and other gifts, and the scene where the elves of Lothlorien take on the pursuing Orcs in the forest.

Is it really worth adding in another 30minutes of footage to an already long film?!

I hope when they release it they do it as a seamless branching version, so you can choose to watch the standard theatrical release, or the "extended" version, without having to buy two actual different products. They did that very well on The Abyss:SE and Terminator 2:SE.

No, Funky, two different products it will be.

Regular in August and Special Edition in November.

That's shit then isn't it. If you want to watch the film as it was in the cinema, you have to buy version 1 for 25 quid. If you want to watch the "directors cut" version, you have to buy version 2 for 40 quid, EVEN THOUGH the technology exists to run both versions from one disc.
How much of a money-grabbing consumer-stitch-up exercise is that?!
