First reactions and reports are beginning to come in about the screening of Return of the King today. I've already read massive spoilers for it . . I can confirm that the VOS is not in the film and neither is HOH.
Reaction I've heard is that it is emotional.
More later . . . I'll try to be careful with the spoilers.
Comment from Film Critic David Poland who 'thankfully' seems to have seen the movie:
I’M THANKFUL YET AGAIN FOR Peter Jackson’s unquenchable passion and proficiency.
