Peter Jackson Reveals ‘Hobbit’ Run Time, Plus Win a Trip to New Zealand –

Guess what? The first film of The Hobbit trilogy is going to be 2 hours and 40 minutes long. Don’t say you weren’t expecting it to be so long, because if you know Peter Jackson’s recent films, then you should know that he probably doesn’t understand the meaning of “under 2 hours.”

“It’s looking like it’s going to be about ten minutes shorter than Fellowship was,” Jackson said. “So it’s going to be officially our shortest Middle-earth yet. I mean, Fellowship was just under three hours and this is about 2 hours, 40 minutes at the moment.”

Also, you’ll be happy to know that Fandango is hosting a sweepstakes that gives you a chance to go to the world premiere of The Hobbit in New Zealand!
