    "Lords of the Rings Middle-earth Midnight Madness" Celebration to Take Place in Los Angeles on June 27th - Theater screenings will be held to promote the June 28th DVD release

    On June 28th, Warner Home Video will release all three of Peter Jackson's visual masterpieces on Blu-ray in a 15-disc stunning collection entitled The Lord of the Rings The Motion Picture Trilogy: Extended Edition. To celebrate the occasion, Warner Home Video has announced a count-down to "Middle-earth Midnight Madness" celebratory event at Best Buy's West Los Angeles location, 11301 W. Pico Blvd., where fans can join in the anticipation of the magic moment when they'll finally be able to own the new extended edition trilogy on Blu-ray.

    Brimming with enthusiasm, fans from all over the country (and possibly worldwide) will be encouraged to arrive for the festivities at 12:00 PM on June 27th -- dressed as their favorite Middle-earth characters. The Aragorn, Frodo, Gandalf and other look-alikes will be eligible to win one of several exciting prizes, with one lucky contestant capturing the Grand Prize of a VIP "Tour of Middle-earth," which is an all-expense-paid trip to New Zealand (Auckland, Wellington, Queenstown), courtesy of Air New Zealand and Weta Workshop! What a prize!

    Other highlights of the Grand Prize package itinerary will include a VIP tour hosted by Hobbiton Movie Set Tours, visits to The Lord of the Rings movie locations, a SKYCITY Grand Hotel VIP experience in Auckland and being hosted at the Weta Cave by the crew from Weta Workshop. Two Second Prize winners will receive an Official 10k Solid Gold version of The One Ring from Noble Collections (consumer value $495 each). Three Third Prize winners will receive a life-sized replica of The Sting Sword, Frodo's sword used throughout the Trilogy, also supplied by Noble Collections (consumer value $295).

    All attendees will be winners, as they marvel at the specially created atmosphere, with autographs from celebrities, and themed give-aways, topped off with the choreographed countdown to midnight and the satisfaction of being the first people in the world to get their new Blu-ray copy of The Lord of the RingsT The Motion Picture Trilogy: Extended Edition.

    It's going to be a fun-as-hell event, so if you are an LA local, we suggest you go, go, go.

    Are you a The Lord of the Rings fan?
