Gather ’round my fellow Hobbits and Dwarves! Soon we will get to return to the Shire and spend a little bit more time on our adventures!
Peter Jackson‘s trilogy adaptation of The Hobbit will be returning to the big screen this Fall with the extended editions showing various nights starting on October 5th. For those of us who don’t purchase Blu-Rays and haven’t had the chance to see the extra footage, this will be yet another new experience for us!
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, October 5th, 2015 at 7:30pm local. Tickets will be regular admission prices for each movie. (x)
For anyone who might want to know how long the extended editions are, there has been a list released which you can see below:
- 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)
There has been a lot of complaints about the film being too long for such a short book so this might not be so enticing for people feel that way. For me, however, I am beyond excited to get to return to the theater one more time with my friends to end our Hobbit viewing tradition on a high note!
