In what is seen as a pioneering move, New Line Cinema, producers of the Lord of The Rings (LOTR) series of movies have released a special DVD Box Set that provides an index of all the other LOTR materials available.
Super fan, Ryan Jenkins agreed there was an urgent need to address the problem, ‘I’ve got the original DVDs, the same DVDs as a box set and then the separate DVDs in Blu-ray format as well as the latest Blu-ray box set. I also have every version of DVDs issued with a plastic figure which is 34 DVDs alone. I have the cinema release editions, the director’s cut editions and the ones with that short movie by Sean Austin. I have the WETA workshop special DVDs, the New Zealand Tourist Board special editions, the 2005-7 Thanksgiving Special Editions and the Andy Serkiss ‘How to be Gollum’ DVDs. I thought I had the lot, properly arranged in chronological order, but I can’t be sure now. A DVD Box Set Index would be perfect as it would catalogue every LOTR product and when it was issued.’
New Line Cinema could not confirm if this was the final LOTR box set. ‘Once the Hobbit trilogy is finished we’ll need another index, then probably an index of indexes’ said a spokesman.
