There’s just two weeks to go until prequel The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and hype levels… well, let’s just say that they’re high. Very high. Since the prequel two-parter became a prequel trilogy back in July, people have predicted that An Unexpected Journey would be a fair bit shorter than the three-hour plus epics that were the Lord of the Rings films. And today, the BBFC revealed the run-time of the first in the trilogy – a whopping 166 minutes (two hours and forty five minutes). Bring a comfy chair, and enjoy the multiple breakfasts on-screen.
They’ve also given the film an unsurprising 12A rating in the UK for ‘moderate violence’, which means that any one aged 12 and above can watch it, and anyone below can sneak into the cinema looking a bit shifty.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits cinemas on December 14.
