In case you felt "The Hobbit" films weren't long enough (each clocked in around three hours), the extended editions of the three movies are coming soon to theaters.



Fathom Events and Warner Bros. Pictures Wednesday released a trailer for the extended editions, which arrive in theaters for a one-night only engagement in October. Watch the trailer below:



Each film will include a special introduction from director Peter Jackson. And here are the dates for when you can go back to Middle-earth:

"The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" – Monday, October 5

"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" – Wednesday, October 7

"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" – Tuesday, October 13


Note that 20 minutes of additional footage means that the "The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Extended Edition" will be rated R. (Even more orc beheadings!) And "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition" includes "fleeting nudity." (Fleeting Nudity is the name of our new tone poem collection, actually.)

"Five Armies" will also hit Blu-Ray and DVD on November 17.


Tickets are on sale now here at the Fathom site. Sadly, there doesn't seem to be package price if you want to see all three films on the big screen, as tickets are only being sold individually.
