Ringer Spy Thorin sends in some news regarding the possible LOTR DVD release, and what rating it may get IF there is any added sticky bits. Thorin is in the know, yet still, take this as RUMOR with enough salt to kill an elephant.

I was chatting with you a month or so ago, and mentioned that I had heard of a DVD release version of LOTR- I did some checking up on it, and it does seem to be true! It has been said that the release will be R18 – due to somewhat graphic scenes (described by some of the actors as “Disturbing”). I am rather good friends with a couple of people who were involved in the production.
