The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King is returning to movie theaters 20 years after its theatrical release, this time in the form of the extended edition.
Peter Jackson's fantasy adaptation continues to be celebrated as an epic and satisfying culmination of J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved novels.
It received 11 Academy Award nominations and won in every single category, including Best Picture, which is a rarity for fantasy blockbuster films.
Regal Cinemas and Cinemark have confirmed that they will be playing the extended version of The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King in theaters on April 13.
Attendees will also be treated to an introduction from Frodo actor Elijah Wood discussing the impact of The Lord of the Rings trilogy.
It remains to be seen if Regal Cinemas and Cinemark will extend the showings beyond April 13 or if other theaters will feature it as well.
At four hours and 20 minutes, the runtime for the extended version is significantly longer than the already lengthy three hours and 20 minute runtime for the theatrical version.
