The Pelorus River will feature in a scene from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey showing barrels plunging down the river during a perilous journey undertaken by Bilbo Baggins and the dwarves.

    The chapter featuring the barrels floating and plunging down river is just over halfway through The Hobbit book and as this article reports, it will screen for the first movie “The Hobbit and Unexpected Journey”.  There have been a lot of discussions about the length of each movie. 

    I think this debut film will run its course probably close to 3 hours and 30 minutes and end when the dwarves are freed from their ‘bumpy ride’
