Spindrift: Big News for Middle Earth

Some big news was announced today for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies!

The extended version of the movie will be rated R!

We have never had this high of a rating on a movie based in Middle Earth and I’m super excited to see why this one earned it. If I had to guess I think that the movie will be gorier and the death scenes may be more gruesome. The extended edition of the movie will even be played in theaters, October 5 and the Blu-Ray will come out sometime in November. There will also be nine hours (!) of extras that I can’t wait to see.

I just hope the movie isn’t rated R because we’re going to get a glimpse of Gandalf’s ‘staff’ or Thorin’s ‘oakenshield.’

On a more serious note this news is actually very good knowing that Warner Brothers won’t filter the movie in order for all audiences to watch it.

Sorry for the short article this week but there really wasn’t much to talk about and I’m on vacation right now.

Thanks for reading.
