The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King
Official MP4 Trailer


The film returns to following Frodo, Sam and Gollum as they journey ever closer to the foreboding land of Mordor. They pass by the terrifying dark city of Minas Morgul, watching as the dreadful army of the Witch King sets out for the human strongholds in Gondor, and move on to the rocky stairs to Cirith Ungol, where an even darker enemy lies in wait. Meanwhile, the rest of the Fellowship reunites in Rohan, having defeated the wizard Saruman on two different fronts, at Helm's Deep and Isengard. They are not together for long, though, since the hobbit Pippin gets into trouble, making it necessary for him and Gandalf to hastily depart for Minas Tirith, capital of Gondor. Once there, they find the steward of Gondor, Denethor, in an unstable mental state and the city preparing for battle against the amassing forces of Sauron. In another realm, elf Arwen begins her journey to immortal life in the Grey Havens, on her way to leave Middle-earth -- and Aragorn -- forever, but has a vision that causes her to once again reconsider her decision. Back in Rohan, the men are preparing to ride to Gondor's aide. Aragorn is met there by the elf Elrond, who brings him the re-forged Sword that was Broken (in the ancient battle with Sauron) and urges him to take a different route to Gondor. Heeding Elrond's advice, Aragorn, along with elf Legolas and dwarf Gimli, takes a cavernous path through the mountains, where they meet ghoulish ghosts who betrayed Aragorn's ancestors and are doomed to eternal unrest unless they fulfill their broken oaths by aiding him. All but Frodo, Sam, and Gollum will meet on the massive battlefield of the Pelennor before the gates of Minas Tirith. The former three instead engage in a battle of wills between each other and the One Ring as they head toward the fires of Mount Doom to destroy it. -- Dana Rowader - All Movie Review

Six Disc Trilogy Set

A six disc Trilogy set in a slipcase, of the theatrical version of all three films, is available for about $20us, 20#. 17eur or $40nz.

The Blu-ray Trilogy Set

The three "The Lord of the Rings" films are 1080p Blu-ray in their original aspect ratio of 2.40:1 using dual-layer BD50s and a VC-1 codec with DTS-HD Master Audio 6.1 ES matrix English or Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo Spanish. There are both English and Spanish subtitle options with the ntsc region A version.
The theatrical-version Blu-ray trilogy set includes nine discs: three high-definition Blu-ray discs of the films, three standard-definition DVDs of special features, and three standard-definition digital copies. Here's a rundown on what's on each of the discs.
Disc one contains "The Fellowship of the Ring" in Blu-ray, along with forty scene selections; BD-Live; two teaser trailers; one theatrical trailer; one super trailer for the Trilogy; and video-game trailers for "The Lord of the Rings: Aragorn's Quest" and "The Lord of the Rings: War in the North" in HD.
Disc two is a DVD containing the bulk of the special bonus features for "The Fellowship of the Ring," presented in standard definition. First up is a sixteen-minute featurette, "Welcome to Middle-earth: Houghton Mifflin In-Store Special," dealing with the books' publisher and their adaptation to the screen. Next is a Fox TV special, "Quest for the Ring," a twenty-one minute promo. Following that is a forty-one minute Sci-Fi Channel special, "A Passage to Middle Earth," that essentially repeats a lot of what the first two featurettes cover. Then, we find fifteen brief featurettes from lordoftherings.net, each of them about two-to-five minutes each. Finally, we get six TV spots; a music video, "May It Be Music," with Enya; a preview of the movie's extended DVD edition; and a preview of "The Two Towers."
Disc three contains "The Two Towers" in Blu-ray, along with fifty-three scene selections, a teaser and theatrical trailer, trailers for the Trilogy and video games, and BD-Live access.
Disc four is a DVD containing the majority of the bonus features for "The Two Towers," presented in standard definition. First up is "On the Set of The Lord of the Rings," a fourteen-minute STARZ Encore Special. Next is "Return to Middle-earth," a forty-three minute WB special with the stars of the film. After that is "The Long and Short of It," a seven-minute short film directed by Sean Astin, followed by "The Making of The Long and the Short of It," eight minutes. I think it's amusing that the making-of film is longer than the film it's discussing. Then, there's another lordoftherings.net featurette gallery, this one highlighting the technical aspects of the filmmaking, that includes eight brief segments at several minutes each. Finally, we get a music video, "Golum's Song," with Emiliana Torrini; a special Extended DVD edition preview; and a behind-the-scenes preview of "The Return of the King."
Disc five contains "The Return of the King" in Blu-ray, along with sixty scene selections, a pair of theatrical trailers in HD, a Trilogy trailer in HD, a special Extended DVD edition preview in HD, two video-game trailers in HD, and BD-Live access.
Disc six is a DVD containing the greater part of the special features for "The Return of the King," presented in standard definition. First is "The Quest Fulfilled: A Director's Vision," twenty-three minutes with the director, cast, and filmmakers. Next is "A Filmmaker's Journey: Making The Lord of the Rings," twenty-eight minutes of more of the same, with an emphasis on the technical aspects of the filmmaking. After that is National Geographic's "Behind the Movie: The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King," forty-six minutes, the best of the documentaries because it delves into some of the historical background of the story. Then, there's a gallery of six brief featurettes from lordoftherings.net highlighting the film's breakthrough special effects and character detail. The disc ends with thirteen TV spots of about thirty seconds each and a special Extended DVD Edition preview.
Discs seven, eight, and nine contain standard-definition digital copies of the films for iTunes and Windows Media, the offer expiring April 4, 2011.
Discs one through six, the Blu-ray movie and DVD special features discs, fit into a single Blu-ray keep case, and discs seven through nine, the digital copies, fit into another. An embossed, hard-cardboard slipcase encloses both cases, and an informational insert of disc contents is included within the set.

NOTE: The Blu-ray version version in Australia and New Zealand is either a Trilogy set at $90-100nz, or as separate 2-disc PAL Region B/C sets of Fellowship of the Ring, The Two Towers and Return of the King at $35-40nz each. The feature technical specs are the same as the Trilogy region A version. The only extras are some trailers.
