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.
