Honestly [In reply to] Can't Post

I feel that would be a true slap in the face.

It would essentially mean that we are not getting Beorn, Mirkwood and Thranduil because the studio wants shorter movies.

I was under the impression that the three-film decision was predicated on the fact that they had too much material, and couldn't fit it all into two films.

                                It probably will. Estel78 Send a private message to Estel78 Sep 23 2012, 6:53pm
                                But it doesn't make sense DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Sep 23 2012, 6:54pm
                                    I'm just saying it will be shorter than a LOTR film. burgahobbit Send a private message to burgahobbit Sep 23 2012, 7:11pm
                                        I'd settle for 2.5 hours for AUJ DanielLB Send a private message to DanielLB Sep 23 2012, 7:16pm
