The Hobbit: The Battle of The Five Armies' extended edition has got an R rating... for some reason

26 August 2015 8:01 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

For those who thought The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies was too tame, Middle Earth will soon be bringing additional - and violent - content to the Blu-ray and DVD Extended Edition.

The final instalment of the adventures of Tolkien's characters will include an additional 20 minutes of footage which bumps up the rating from PG-13 to R.

As well as additional footage cut from the film, the Extended Edition will also include a whopping nine hours of special features content (that's 2.15 Return of the King extended editions), including audio commentary from director Peter Jackson and a behind-the-scenes documentary on the film's production.

It will be released digitally on October 20, and is slated to be released on November 17 in the Us - but there's no UK release date yet.

Hobbit extended editions set for big screen

26 August 2015 4:16 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Peter Jackson’s movies are to return to Us multiplexes with extra footage, despite complaints that the original cuts already contained enough padding

If you’ve ever sat in a cinema wishing Peter Jackson’s Hobbit movies were just that little bit longer, your dreams are about to come true. Variety reports all three films in the trilogy are to return to Us multiplexes in extended form.

The longer editions of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, The Desolation of Smaug and The Battle of the Five Armies have been put together for DVD releases. But with the film saga having scored close to $3bn (£191m) at the global box office, studio Warner Bros clearly believes there will be demand for more Hobbity fun on the big screen.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Extended Edition Coming in November

25 August 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Fans of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit films have been anxiously awaiting the release of the inevitable extended version of The Battle of Five Armies, and today Warner Bros. have officially revealed when fans can pick it up, along with which new special features are included.  Come inside to take a look!

I think I've made it clear over the last few years, that I haven't exactly been a fan of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy (for a variety of reasons).  However, I have felt that the extended edition versions of the movies have been more enjoyable for me as I watched them.  Perhaps that will be the case with Battle of the Five Armies, which hits blu-ray on November 17th, with 20 extra minutes of footage.  

And yes, as rumored/revealed a little while ago, this new version is in fact rated R.  Take from that what you will, »

MGM Earnings, Revenues Decline Despite ‘Skyfall’ Success

12 August 2015 12:31 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

MGM Holdings has reported a 9.1% decline in second quarter earnings to $37 million, on a 13% slide in revenues to $274.3 million, despite the success of James Bond’s “Skyfall.”

The privately held company blamed lower home entertainment sales, which slid 36.8% to $85 million, as international revenues for “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” were lower than “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.”

MGM also cited the strong dollar and last year’s release of “RoboCop” as reasons for the decline. The studio also noted that it has a “strategic moratorium” on James Bond releases to help a promotion planned for the upcoming Bond film “Spectre,” which opens November 6.

TV licensing rose 15% to $159.6 million, thanks to the initial free U.S. availability of “Skyfall” and the continued licensing of “Skyfall” and “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.”

“Skyfall” is the most successful Bond film, having grossed $1.1 billion in worldwide box office.

'The Hobbit: Battle Of The Five Armies' Extended Edition Earns R-Rating

6 August 2015 6:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Earlier this week we learned that Peter Jackson's extended edition version of his "The Hobbit" trilogy would be coming to theaters for a limited event screening in October. Audiences have already seen the padded out versions of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," however extended version of "The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies" isn't due to hit home video until November. And now there's an intriguing new twist. Rope Of Silicon reports that the 'Battle Of The Five Armies' extended cut has been stamped with an R-rating for "some violence" by the MPAA. This is a bit surprising given that the ratings board tends to be pretty soft on violence if there's no blood, and while Jackson's fantasy films have their share of massive battles, and various showdowns, I can't recall any being particularly gruesome. It seems that has changed for 'Armies, »

'The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies' Extended Edition is Rated R

5 August 2015 2:09 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

It was recently announced Warner Bros. and Fathom Events would be releasing the extended versions of The Hobbit trilogy in theaters beginning October 5. The three films would be shown over the course of three nights and will include an exclusive introduction from director Peter Jackson. One new and rather interesting piece of information regarding the upcoming extended release of The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies is that the MPAA has awarded it an "R" rating for "some violence". The movie was added to yesterday's ratings bulletin after I had already posted it, but the rating is official and Battle of the Five Armies is listed as rated R on the MPAA's official site. The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies (Extended Edition) Rated R For some violence. Note: Edited Version. Content Is Different From PG-13 Rated Version, Bulletin No. 2351 (12/3/14).

Extended Hobbit movies heading to cinemas in October

5 August 2015 12:44 AM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

You’ve read that headline correctly. It looks like Peter Jackson just can’t let it lie. Yes, extended versions of The Hobbit movies are heading to cinemas later this year.

With the release of the final ‘extended’ version hitting DVD, Blu-Ray and VOD channels in November – that’s The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies – all three will also hit U.S. cinemas in their extended form in October. We’re hearing that they will screen over separate nights starting October 5th, though it is not know if UK fans will get the same.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies extended version is clocking in at 174 minutes, a full half an hour longer than the theatrical cut, which was, quite frankly, long enough. Add that to the 182 minutes for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and 186 minutes for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, and you’ve got a nine-hour opus. »

'The Hobbit' Extended Edition Trilogy Hitting Cinemas In October

4 August 2015 8:25 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Peter Jackson's return to Middle Earth with "The Hobbit" trilogy wasn't exactly triumphant. Oh sure, the three movies earned just a shade under $3 billion at the box office, but the reception was middling, the high tech pizzazz wasn't as special this time around, and frankly, many wondered why we needed three more movies spun from a thin novella. At any rate, if you wanted even more, well, Christmas is in October this year. Warner Bros. and Fathom Events are bringing the extended editions of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," and "The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies" to cinemas starting October 5th. Presumably it will be one film per night but it's not clear if this will be on consecutive evenings or one each week. And if you're wondering why Warner Bros. is even bothering with this, it's a pretty good way »
