The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Don’t buy The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers when it comes out in VHS and DVD this summer. As with The Fellowship of the Ring, the theatrical version will come out first, then a version with a lot of restored footage will come out in November. Why don’t they wait and release both versions at the same time, instead of letting people buy one and then find out about the other? I love LOTR, but what a rip off!

The Two Towers is now one of the all-time biggest box office hits, and will probably perform as well on VHS and DVD. Of course, by the time
The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King comes out on DVD, VHS might no longer exist. We’ll see.
