I’m going to get abuse for this, I know I am, but what the hell…
If there’s one thing the world doesn’t need, it’s an even more extended cut of Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings prequel trilogy, the wildly stretched out already The Hobbit. Nevertheless, it looks like they are on their way.
It seems that anyone with a free 542mins – or nine hours – this October over three nights has something to fill the time.
Check out the info below:
Fathom Events and Warner Bros. are partnering to present the extended editions of all three Hobbit movies. Shown over three nights, the epic Peter Jackson trilogy will be the first time the extended editions have ever been released in theatres. Also included will be an exclusive introduction by director Peter Jackson. First night showing starts Monday, Oct. 5, 2015, at 7:30 p.m. local. Tickets will be regular-admission price for each movie.
Here are the running times compared to the original releases, according to Geektyrant
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey – 182 minutes (theatrical: 169 minutes)
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug – 186 minutes (theatrical: 161 minutes)
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – 174 minutes (theatrical: 144 minutes)
So yeah… anyone up for this? Count me out…
