The Hobbit- I'm waiting for the Extended Edition
From the LATimes
Middle-earth fans who buy “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” when it is released on Blu-ray and DVD March 19 will be privy to a sneak preview of “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” — the second movie in Peter Jackson’s planned trilogy based on the book by J.R.R. Tolkien. But those hoping for an extended edition of the first film will have to wait until the holidays.
“An Unexpected Journey” will go on sale March 19 in three different combinations — a Blu-ray combo pack ($35.99), a Blu-ray 3-D combo pack ($44.95) and a DVD two-disc special edition ($28.98) — but all of them will feature the 169-minute theatrical version of the film, Warner Bros. announced Tuesday, adding that an extended edition will be available in time for the holidays.
I don't know about you, but I'm waiting for the Extended Edition. Was The Hobbit a perfect movie? Nope. But I loved this movie and can't wait for the extra footage. Maybe I'll get it from the Redbox or Netflix if I just can't wait until the holiday season. Just think, once all three movies come out with extended editions, we can all meet up for a mind numbing 19 hour LOTR and Hobbit marathon. Who's with me?
