The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug runtime is 156 minutes?

October 18, 2013 at 8:31 pm by Demosthenes  - 

desolation of smaug poster Amidst talk over on about The Hobbit, one user has revealed that a “For Your Consideration” booklet circulating around Hollywood for The Desolation of Smaug lists a run-time of 156 minutes.

I RSVP’d to a screening on the WB lot and it lists 156min as the runtime.

As another user there points out, the run-times in such material generally includes credits. So if credits run for about five minutes to 10 minutes, expect a film of a little under two-and-a-half hours (it seems longer when you say it that way, doesn’t it?).

If true, this would make The Desolation of Smaug 13 minutes shorter than the theatrical run of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and 24 minutes shorter than The Two Towers, the middle film of Jackson’s adaptation of The Lord of the Rings.

Could that mean that There And Back Again will therefore be a monster as long as Return of the King? Thanks to Ringer TheCoon for the heads-up.
