Some good announcements I've heard: the regular DVD release of The Two Towers is set for August 26. I'll be skipping that and waiting for the special extended version of "The Two Towers" set to debut on November 18. According to this website, the extended DVD has 44 minutes of additional footage, bringing the running time of The Two Towers to three hours, 42 minutes.
I'm actually salivating.
Also, photographs from Return of the King suggest that they're going to stick pretty closely to the arrangement of the Battle of Pelenor Fields. Aragorn, Legolas and Gimli will be heading down the Paths of the Dead. With luck, the movie will end at the Grey Havens.
