Blu-ray Alert Update: Put a Ring Around This

Roadshow Entertainment will release The Lord of the Rings movies on Blu-ray on April 21.

As tipped on ScreenScribe.tv, each will be sold in separate editions comprising two discs: one will be a Blu-ray of the theatrical version of the movie (with HD movie and Aragorn’s Quest game trailers), the other will be a DVD of SD extras.
