Now then… first up today, it looks as if the street date for Warner’s as-yet-unannounced The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – Extended Edition is going to be 11/10 or 11/17. The U.K. release is already listed on with a date of 11/16, so you can bet the U.S. release will confirm fairly closely to this. We expect an official announcement soon, possibly around San Diego Comic-Con which is just two weeks away. [Read on here…]
