It will be in HD and it is the director's cut. Set you recorders and grab this fine film. 4 AM, Monday morning.

Watched 5 minutes of this while getting ready this morning. It's a 1.78:1 transfer, but since it was shot Super35, it is likely opened up from the 2.35:1 framing. The picture was sharper than Jackson's FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING in HD.


When I get home this evening I will do a comparison to the DVD to confirm open matted or cropped.

Just spent some time comparing it to the DVD. The transfer was definitely the same time as the 2.35:1 version. It is open matted, so nothing is cropped. There is equal new picture at both the top and the bottom of the frame for most shots, though sometimes more at the top.


Detail is high, colors are richer than on the DVD, but there is still edge enhancement. You can see it around the black robes worn at schools. Keep in mind the EE on the DVD is thicker.


This is a keeper.

It looked like the uncut version to me. But I didn't watch it all, so maybe I am wrong. The running time listed on the website was the running time for the director's cut. But I checked weeks ago, so maybe they updated it.
