All right, there’s been no Hobbit announcement yet, but we expect it any time. Meanwhile, we do have one update concerning the running time of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies – Extended Edition. It is official 164 minutes – some 20 minutes longer than the theatrical cut. We’d previously reported 180 minutes, which we got from studio sources, but as is often the case the studio was incorrect. The 164 minutes comes directly from WingNut Films and the German ratings board is indicating the same. So please take note.  [Read on here…]

All right, we have a couple bits of news for you today but first this...

Go see Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation. Seriously, don’t even hesitate. I saw it last night up at the Chinese Theater and Hollywood, and it’s terrific. It’s one of the best spy action thrillers I’ve seen in a long time. Way better than Kingsman, slightly better than the last Mission: Impossible film (Ghost Protocol), and I think better even than some of the recent Bond films. The action, pacing and suspense are all excellent and very old school, there’s good moments of humor, the villain is great, the female lead is great. It’s just a damn fine time at the movies. You’ll really enjoy it, I think. [Read on here…]

Okay, first things first: You may have noticed that we’ve added a new Amazon graphic to The Bits homepage (above right, in the sidebar column). What that widget allows you to do is to see the best of the day’s Blu-ray and DVD deals on Amazon. You can scroll through them and new ones are added all the time. Shopping through that widget helps support The Bits. We’ll be adding more such widgets gradually, as we see what you find useful, so please e-mail us or message us on Facebook and let us know what you think. We really do appreciate it.  [Read on here…]
