Amazon is PMing Walmart. I went with the former to avoid paying tax. Unless I'm mistaken, this is almost exactly the lowest the Extended Edition for An Unexpected Journey was priced last year, so this may be the best price point for awhile.

 

Information on what's included can be found here. The most significant aspect is the 25 minutes of added footage (186-minute runtime now).

I am sorely tempted to just gift my copy of the first movie to someone and just buy the EE's of both the first and second.

Should just wait for the inevitable box set.

I just saw this movie a couple days ago for the first time.  It was the worst of the 5 movies so far released.  I'm not sure it's even worth owning...

Aside from that Best Buy exclusive steelbook that didn't come with a 2D blu ray, I don't think the extended 3D version has gone that low has it?  In hindsight I probably should have just gotten that, but I thought the extended 3D/2D version would hit $20 at some point and AFAIK it hasn't.

I can't wait to watch this movie again, especially with all the new footage, but I will wait until the 3D Extended version drops from that $39.95 price... probably on release week?

If it's going to be Blu-ray 3D + UV (i.e., no regular Blu-ray, 3D only) again, I'll pass.

Not this version:

http://www.bestbuy.c...obbit&lp=1&cp=1

 

Which is a steelbook,

 

whats odd is UK has exact same one here: http://www.amazon.co...keywords=hobbit

 

and it does include a 2D disc, but of course is practically double in cost.

Wait, they actually cut some footage from this movie? I hope it's an actual conclusion where they kill the dragon!  An extended version of a film based upon a bloated version of a story from 70 years ago. Sounds torturous. RIP Tolkien.
