Whether the “erroneous mention” was intentional or not, fans have been agitating for confirmation. For legal reasons I cannot ‘confirm’ the release but I can authoritatively confirm that the there are reports from trusted sources that although Warner Bros. Home Entertainment calendar puts release of the Extended Edition at fourth quarter 2013, it could come way much earlier. How much earlier? As early as April!This is a real way that people will get to be entertained by the movie that has all the essence that comes with it.

So the cat is out of the bag, update your player for this summer’s release of the movie, shot in 3D 48 frames per second. Dont be left behind on this as its worth you. According to, it will be released in High Frame Rate (HFR) 3D, IMAX, other 3D formats and also 2D. If the official trailer released is anything to go by, this is the best summer yet. Additional filming is currently taking place at Stone Street Studios in Wellington and on location in areas of New Zealand.
