one R-ating to rule them all

move over, Smaug. Middle-Earth has a new enemy: the MPAA. Warner Bros. has confirmed that the extended cut of Battle Of The Five Armies will receive an R-rating when it’s finally released on DVD in mid-November (though the die-hard fans will see it a month early when it screens at various theaters across the US on October 13). so what’s the reason for the rating upgrade…is it Gandalf’s excessive pipe smoking? do the Orcs curse up a storm? do Tauriel and Kili go all the way? no, it’s due to “some violence*.” well, that’s not very descriptive considering 3/4 of the theatrical film consisted of the titled battle.

*i know what it is, but i’m keeping quiet.
