Peter Jackson's never been one for brevity, and it seems he's proud, as he released this deleted scene from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which will appear in the extended version of the film.
Featuring the hobbit himself, Martin Freeman, as he attempts to cross some treacherous (and rather trippy) waters:
Bewitched by the dark magic of the forest, the gang begin to lose their sense of direction, and as this clip shows, their wits too.
The clip is just a few of 25 extra minutes included in the extended edition, which is released November 4th.
Die hard fans will be treated to never-before-seen footage of Bilbo's journeys, much of which had to be cut from the theatrical version of the film, which clocks in at a whopping 161 minutes.
The third and final film in the franchise; [The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies](movie:512312), comes out at Christmas time. Have some pity on our bladders, Mr Jackson.
Watch the deleted scene below.
