The Hobbit: Theatrical Audiobook - Chapter 1 - An Unexpected Party (J.R.R. Tolkien)
The Hobbit by JRR Tolkien
The trilogy of films — minutes of orcs and elves — is based on a single novel by J. Tolkien that, according to my paperback copy, numbers pages. In other words, the filmmakers have wrung all they could out of the source material. Based on my estimation, the scene runs about 2 minutes, 12 seconds. I pulled the run time, according to IMDb, of 54 popular films released since that were based on novels.
