Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies - Extended Ahead
The last Hobbit movie, The Battle of the Five Armies, is currently hitting cinemas worldwide. With a runtime of 144 minutes, it is the shortest of the whole cinematic universe taking place in J.R.R. Tolkien's Middle-earth. But that could change soon as there is already info regarding the extended edition that awaits home video collectors down the line.
Peter Jackson himself said at the press conference after the film's world premiere that a longer version of the film will most certainly follow. After An Unexpected Journey was prolonged by 13 minutes later on and The Desolation of Smaug got additions of 25 minutes, the final film is supposed to be extended by about 30 minutes of footage.
We'll have to check this statement when the time comes since Jackson wasn't very accurate with the first film. In 2012, he said that the extended version of the first movie would be 20-25 minutes longer when 13 minutes were eventually right. It is to be expected that the release strategy for the third film will be identical to that of its predecessors, which means that the theatrical version will hit the home video market in multiple editions and that the extended edition will most likely follow around November 2015.
