What impact is this film's reception going to have on the next two films? Can't Post

You know the story now. RottenTomatoes is in the 60s; virtually every review (even the good ones) is moaning about the length of the film, (and the 48fps, but I think it's the length that the reviewers hate more than anything).

We are officially through the looking glass people - the unthinkable has happened, and a Peter Jackson Middle-earth film is getting a significant number of bad reviews, mostly whining about the length and/or the pacing, and it's only 2 hours and 40 mins! Less than any of the LotR films!

Does this give Warner Brothers the license to lay down the law? Are we going to get short-changed with the next two films? Will they be only two hours long each? What does this mean for the extra shooting that is scheduled for next year - is it even needed now?

Is this the death of 48fps?

Will this whole sorry situation cast a grey cloud over Peter Jackson's mood for the duration of the trilogy's production?
