Thread: Why two movies?
If they make the movie good enough, people won't walk out of the theater before it's over. Hollywood is stuck on the 2 hour movie.
It's THE HOBBIT.
People read the story to their kids. Just about everyone I know grew up with it. If they do it right, they don't have to worry about how long it is and then they only need one movie.
Two movies just doesn't make sense to me.
Just my $0.02
Opinions, opinions. . .
So, in its original form (and in the original spirit of the story), it was a story that you told your kids at the end of the day by the fire.
And with most theater seating I've seen, anything past 2 hours hurts, 3 is pushing tolerance, and 4 is a torture session that should be considered criminal.
But Im still not sure, will there be one movie thats The Hobbit, and one movie that contains the story between The Hobbit and LOTR, or will The Hobbit be seperated into these two movies? Ive gotten a little confused by some newsletters
Discussion of how this should be handled is taking place on the Directors vision thread, the thoughts on the break point thread, and the other two movies thread .
