In our civilization, and under our republican form of government, intelligence

is so highly honored that it is rewarded by exemption from the cares of office.

A Peak Behind the Scenes of ROTK SEE

If you liked my last Lord of the Rings: Return of the King Special Extended Edition post, you will likely find this one interesting as well. The following links are for clips taken from the Appendices of the upcoming Special Extended Edition of the Return of the King. Enjoy.

Paths of the Dead

There is also a clip on Pippin's Song on the official movie site.

Lest We Forget

If you're old enough, remember. If you're too young to remember, learn.

December 7, 1941.

A day of infamy.

A day to remember.

Never forget their sacrifice.

For those of you who don't speak geek, the long version of this entry's title is, "New Lord of the Rings: Return of the King Special Extended Edition Teasers."


(The following links have been out for a few days. I've been busy at work and with preparing The Impudent Finger for public display.)

The first teaser is the same one that is on the official LOTR site, but this link is more reliable. The preview is almost 7 minutes long. If you have a dial-up connection, you may want to start downloading it before you go to bed. ;-) The next two trailers are much longer versions of scenes shown in this trailer.

The second teaser is shorter. It is from the TV show Extra website and is an extended scene of Saruman's defeat at Orthanc. Just click on "Exclusive: Saruman's defeat: the complete scene" on the right side of the page.

The last teaser I have to share is a new scene featuring a character who did not appear in the theatrical release of the Return of the King. Those who have read the books may recall the Mouth of Sauron, the Dark Lord Sauron's spokesman. He is definately an argument against socialized dentistry. By the way, after you follow the link, you will need to scroll down until you get past the review of the EE. Then look for the link "Mouth of Sauron Video".
