    OK, OK, almost everything mentioned here is almost assuredly in the extended version. As for Gandalf's staff and vs. the Witch-King, that encounter is as he's on his way up to Denethor's pyre (the only time Pippin is behind Gandalf on Shadowfax).

    Probably the same way all the hobbits get new cloaks and pins - movie magic? Well, we don't know exactly what happens to Gandalf's staff during the encounter. He may have just dropped it and not had time to get it since he was on his way to save Faramir and had already been delayed by the Witch-King.

    5 hours would be a long movie, not that I'd complain about it

    Ian McKellan said it was five, Peter Jackson said it was at least 4.5. I'm hoping for as long as possible! :D

    yea but the fact that i know the scouring of the shire won't be there makes it a bittersweet EE. at least we get some MoS

    Well. I am glad Im not the only one! I thought I was just confused at first but the more I thought about it.........there was quite a lot cut that was in the trailer and I was sure I was paying attention to the movie so hopefully this stuff will all/mostly be in the EE. I am glad I didnt imagine Cirdan though, as someone said he wasnt in it, it would be nice to see a bit more of him. If like me you watched the trailer several times before seeing the movie you will understand the confusion. But the EE should be terrific if all this goes back in.

    In a recent interview, Peter Jackson said it was going to be 4 hours and 15 minutes long. The 50 minute long version came from an interviewer who later wrote back saying he got the two mixed up.

    That's also possible. I just don't picture him having such a raw emotional reaction to Gamling's death. The look on his face seems more like it's Eowyn IMO.

    It wasn't Eowyn, it was Gamling

    cuz i am enlightened on the matter, and : Gamling will die on the Pellenor, and the guy Eomer holds while bawling his eyes out doesn't look like Eowyn or Theoden.

    If you look closely I think it is eowyn because it doesnt look like the person has a beard
