TH:AUJ SEE: New DVD artwork details (digipak design) Can't Post

Now this I call nice. Almost as good as the LOTR SEE foldout digipaks, though there seems to be no booklet pocket.

Also, by zooming in you can finally see how the film is split on 5 DVDs.
- 2 DVDs with the film
- 2 DVDs with Appendices, Part 7 (split on 2 DVDs)
- 1 DVD with Appendices, Part 8

Wonderful [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't see why the Blu-ray won't be like that as well.

Beautiful [In reply to] Can't Post

I wonder how the standard DVD package will look - hopefully, it'll contain the same style and artwork as this one - it would really match the LOTR EEs ... Angelic

The UK DVD artwork does look like the proper design... [In reply to] Can't Post

...however, it is not clear yet if it's just an amaray keep case.

It would match my LOTR DVDs. There should also be a booklet pocket, though.

I am glad they are using the artwork similar to the LOTR EE. I love that stuff.

Hope for the same or similar for Germany. Though I like the DVD cover much more.

Wouldn't have it any other way. Even if its different, I think the Carrock artwork actually adds to the otherwise completely LOTR-esque packaging.

Yap... [In reply to] Can't Post

... today I also finally pre-ordered the German EE (with the Riddles statue in the nice box, have to get the LotR EE boxes in my shelves again... and still loving my Argonath holders).

Seeing what kind of crap WB practically forces onto customers in several ways (LotRO, Flixster - especially for Tablets and Phones -, the extra-free DVDs, etc.), I am really glad someone seems to have persuaded them that the EEs have to basically stay the same... yes, especially the missing commentaries are sad, but I was afraid the whole thing would completely change in style compared to the LotR EEs. This, however, does not seem to be the case. Thankfully.

i'm pretty sure they will still split the film into 2 discs on bluray [In reply to] Can't Post

since they split all the LOTR's EE's on bluray.

Does anyone have any idea [In reply to] Can't Post

What the second Appendice Part 7 disc is? Is it the Ultraviolet? If so, why did they call it the Appendices Part 7? It seems weird to me that Part 7 is on two discs and that there is no visible ultraviolet.

I don't think they split LotR into two blu-ray discs because of file size... [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it could have been for other reasons, such as PJ's commentary making reference to "switching discs" toward the end of disc one on each film. This would be weird on a single disc edition.

The Second Appendices Part 7 disc is, well the second Appendices Part 7 disc.

Clearly the Appendices Part 7 is a little too long to fit on one DVD - weather this is due to there being more than around 3 hours of Docs (Unlikely) or if when coupled with all the images and various extra pre-production archives its a little too big to fit comfortably (more likely)

The Blu-Ray obviously doesn't suffer from this as there is more available storage space and as such only needs one disc.

The Ultraviolet copy will surely just be a piece of paper with a download code like the other releases? It doesn't need a seperate disc. Companies seem to have moved away from digital copies on a disc. The Theatrical release was just a code.

AUJ:EE will not be split in 2D Blu-Ray as the (US) 2D BluRay is a 3 disc set. 1 = Film / 1 = App. Part 7 / 1 = App. Part 8

The movie will be split on the 3D Blu Ray as that is an 5 disc set. 2 = Film 3D / 1 = Film 2D / 1 = App. Part 7 / 1 = App. Part 8

At least the last few BR disks I have bought were that way including The Hobbit AUJ.. I would assume more cost effective

Just went back and double checked the Press Release. The UV will indeed be a code like normal, infact it'll likely be emailed a copy of it long before you get the disc.
