to prep for the premiere. There's a lot that happens when a film is finished.

Pretty massive achievement if you ask me... [In reply to] Can't Post

considering all of the adversity this movie adaptation has undergone...

Congrats to PJ and Co.!!! Here's to an incredible premiere and a movie(s) for the ages.

Nah [In reply to] Can't Post

Y = X, X = Y

And Z doesn't exist. That's just my opinion and it could be wrong, but I think it's right. Peter Jackson has said that they don't film scenes for the extended editions, and that the only reason the EE's exist is that "at the end of the day you end up with a film that's too long."

So instead of EE's, this time they took the two "too long" films and spread the footage across three films instead. Thus, I think they will use all of the good quality scenes for the theatrical editions, and have nothing left over to make extended editions with.

Not necessarily [In reply to] Can't Post

If the commentaries are to be believed, many of the EE scenes were cut for reasons of pacing rather than total runtime (and regardless of how much I may like the cut scenes, I generally agree with the editing decisions they describe that way).

But any particular reason to assume "all"? [In reply to] Can't Post

That was rather my point.

Alright [In reply to] Can't Post

I haven't watched the commentaries, but since they say that, I suppose there could be an EE for The Hobbit. I think that if there is one though, that it will be much much shorter than the LOTR ones.

@Lacrimae Rerum I assumed "all" because that's the way Peter Jackson explained it at comic-con. It seemed to me as if he was saying (and this is not at all his quote): "We use all the good scenes we can, and if the film is too long then we cut out what we must and add those scenes to the extended versions."

Well, time will tell...
