Finally, for the first time, all three original theatrical versions of The Lord Of The Rings come alive in high definition Blu-ray! See the epic trilogy the way it was meant to be seen with the complete box set containing The Fellowship Of The Ring, The Two Towers, and The Return Of The King!

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy tells the story of Frodo Baggins (Elijah Wood), a hobbit who battles against the Dark Lord Sauron to save his world, Middle-earth, from the grip of evil. In the films, Frodo and his fellowship of friends and allies embark on a desperate journey to rid Middle-earth of the source of Sauron's greatest strength, the One Ring — a ring that has the power to enslave the inhabitants of Middle-earth. The trilogy tells tales of extraordinary adventures across the treacherous landscape of Middle-earth and reveals how the power of friendship, love and courage can hold the forces of darkness at bay. Beside Wood, the films star Ian McKellen, Liv Tyler, Viggo Mortensen, Sean Astin, Cate Blanchett, John Rhys-Davies, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, featuring Sean Bean, and Ian Holm, with Andy Serkis as Gollum. The films also star Marton Csokas, Craig Parker and Lawrence Makaoare.

The Lord Of The Rings - The Fellowship Of The Ring:In a time before history, in a place called Middle-earth, a dark and powerful lord has brought together the forces of evil to destroy its cultures and enslave all life caught in his path. Sauron's time has come and he needs only one small object - a Ring that has been lost for centuries - to snuff out the light of civilization and cover the world in darkness…

The Lord Of The Rings - The Two Towers.: The fellowship is now divided with Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Legolas (Orlando Bloom) and Gimli (John-Rhys Davies) helping to restore some order to the land of King Theodon (Bernard Hill), whose mind has been poisoned by the machinations of Grima Wormtongue (Brad Dourif). Wormtongue is a secret emissary of wizard Saruman (Christopher Lee), now ready to unleash his army of the night on Middle-Earth. Meanwhile, Frodo (Elijah Wood) is falling deeper under the dreaded influence of The Ring, as he journeys with Sam (Sean Astin) towards Mordor…

The Lord Of The Rings - The Return Of The King:The remnants of the Fellowship marshal their forces for one final attack as Hobbits Sam (Astin) and Frodo (Wood) are led by Gollum to Mount Doom in the hope of destroying the One Ring forever..

    ozgameshop ship from the UK using standard ~2 week shipping times.

    Amazon UK have this for £18.94 including shipping which is approximately $30.

    Not a bargain.

        you missed the "including shipping" part.

        I probably should have also said "including the removal of VAT" too.

        £18.94 is the final price after all that.

          Ahh… :)

    Wish it was the Extended editions. Also, as above, not a special deal. Amazon.co.uk is cheaper.

      Crikey, the theatrical release is already ten hours! How much more do you want?

      •  

        Thats what I was thinking….

      Me too. It's just a matter of time before they released the extended cut.

      •  

        Same goes for me. Fell into that trap several years ago. Didn't know there was an extended edition even planned so bought the theatrical. Then about 6 months later out it came…

    •  

      Said the same thing myself, but couldn't resist buying the movies when Amazon had them for $USD 7.99 each as part of their Black Friday sales. I also bought a bunch of other Blu-ray's at the same time, and so with shipping, it worked out to be around $26 for the trilogy. Plus, Amazon were nice enough to upgrade the order to express shipping, so it arrived from Las Vegas to Melbourne in only 4 days (1 day delay due to customs).

      I've already watched Fellowship, and the picture quality is alright. Two Towers definitely looks better. And while they're not the extended editions, it's still the best quality the LOTR movies have ever been presented in (not counting overseas HD broadcasts and illegal downloading).

      My opinion? If you can get the trilogy for under $AUD 30 delivered, then it's probably just about worth the money.

      •  

        Storywise, in my opinion the EE for Return of the King is good. But the EEs for the first and second films just drag and drag. I have both sets as a result.

  •  

    AFAIK the extended edition is not available on Blu-ray.

      They haven't been released yet, but they will be. :)

  •  

    As above; cheaper @ Amazon.co.uk by about AUD $7

  •  

    Worst picture quality ever, DNR and edge enhancement splattered everywhere. Ive seen better picture quality from films shot 20-30 years ago. A film like this deserves only the best PQ and AQ.

  •  

    As others have said, these are the theatrical versions. The "proper" extended versions are coming to bluray soon.

    Dont buy, disappointment awaits.

  •  

    “Peter Jackson has said that the Extended Editions were in development for Blu-ray and would be released in conjunction with the planned theatrical release of The Hobbit.

    I guess I can wait 2 or 3 years until the Hobbit gets released…

      Hm. Word on amazon uk was that it was "imminent".. could all have been wrong.
