Ringer Spy Thorin sends in the following:

“I have a few friends who were part of a filming session as orcs down in the Ruapehu area a few months ago. Aparently there is 2 versions being filmed, one for cinema release, and a DVD release, the latter sounds to be somewhat more gory!

I am told that during the filming of a particular scene (a fairly serious battle) the make-up techs were busy spreading blood and KY jelly over the actors, and the action began… the filming was then stopped, and the scene “topped up” with somewhat what has been described as “buckets-full”,of blood and KY… the latter they were told, for a DVD version.”

If this is true, we could very well have a very cool DVD indeed!
