Peter Jackson News - The Hobbit, Lord Of The Rings Blu-ray, District 9, The Lovely Bones

Collider: Thursday night at Comic-Con was insane. For some reason, all the studios decided to throw massive parties and hold insanely cool stuff on the same night. I was invited to about 7 things that would normally be a fantastic night, but due to time and schedule, I could only do a fraction of what I was offered. So what ended up winning out? Some guy named Peter Jackson.

So if you're a fan of his work, after the jump you can read some updates on "The Hobbit", the "Lord of the Rings" Blu-rays, "District 9?, and "The Lovely Bones".

Before the evening started tonight, I was one of the early people at the informal gathering. Since I knew I wouldn't have much time with Peter on my own, I asked the one thing every fan of "Lord of the Rings" wants to know - when are his amazing movies going to hit Blu-ray, and would the extended editions be included with the theatrical or would they be a separate purchase.

Here's the bad news.

He told me the first editions to hit Blu-ray are going to be the theatrical versions and a year later we'd get the extended editions. The only good news is he told me the studio has started talking to him about doing some new extras for the Blu-ray extended editions. No word on exactly what the new stuff might be.

And i'll have to continue to wait because i want the Ext/DC version of the LOTR on blu-ray as well...

I'll definitely be downloading the theatrical versions, once released, though.

I love LoTR, but 9 hrs is enough for me. I dont need the extended editions or anything. I will live with the theatrical versions.

trust me the extended two towers makes the movie so much better!

No "Hobbit" until 2011? Crap. My kids will be sad. My oldest read the book a few months back and just asked me yesterday about the movie.

Ah, well. At least it'll probably be good.
