    I went to Blockbuster recently to rent ROTK (who didn't) and was told by the lady behind the desk that her manager said that the Extended Edition came out with the movie. Is this a rumor or is it really out?

    That is definitely a rumor. The lady must have been misinformed. The extended edition won't be out for several more months.

    I heard the Extended Edition wasn't coming out until November like the first two. There's so much extra footage and being the final film PJ wanted to make sure it was perfect.

    Maybe they got just confused by the Special features disk that comes with the RoTK movie DVD in the 2-disk set?

    The extended edition WON'T come out until November, later this year. So says the rebate certificate that came with my copy of RotK.

    In recent interviews people from New Line are indeed indicating that the EE DVD set won't be out until December, there being now "the next movie" coming out for the need to get the hype up, and PJ and crew being away now on various different projects and also during the awards season to do the commentary and all the other extra good stuff... and obviously as stated above, they don't have to rush it out for the next movie the were coming out the previous two years.

    But the EE cut is done, as discussed in this thread. So that's comforting news. What's not so good to hear is that it's not really the final cut of the movie that's taking time, but all the extra stuff that goes into the set.
