      TBA according to Amazon.
      On that link they have a comparison chart of the various releases.

        I sure hope they cleaned these up. The first set on Blu-ray was very disappointing.

        In many cases, the HDTV copies pushing a decade old had better PQ.
        Most posts made under this account probably influenced by "kool-aid". Done drinking what Chase is offering, and my current views have significantly changed.

          Last I had heard, they were holding these until after the Hobbit released, so I wasn't sure if there was new info out there...

            Funny, I thought the first set on Blu-ray was pretty good. FOTR wasn't great, but TTT and ROTK were noticeably improved over the DVDs. The only really crappy parts were the movies themselves. :D

            (I'm a huge fan of the LOTR novel, not a big fan of the movies.)

              I wonder if these will just be the movie or have all that extra stuff the DVD's did. On a related note, I HATE it when the companies do the "Combo Pack" and add a digital copy and a DVD I will never use and raise the price. Just give me the Blu-Ray and call it a day.

                  FOTR was a mess, TTT was better but still had DNR, and ROTK was very good.

                  Here's an example from FOTR of a nearly decade old HDTV transfer mopping up the Blu-ray: http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/34450

                  TTT: http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/34461

                  Even ROTK has it's rough parts: http://screenshotcomparison.com/comparison/34459

                  There's just no excuse for not doing this right. Especially a second go-around... fingers crossed.

                    Very interesting.
