If you believe all that was needed to improve Peter Jackson's bloated The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies was a few more buckets of blood, then this bonus footage featuring more Middle-earth slaughter will be just your cup of red-tinged tea.  The brutality-bolstered R-rated Extended Edition version of Battle of the Five Armies is set for Blu-ray release next week, and we've got 15 furious minutes of the epic final battle scene, with orcs, elves, dwarves, hobbits, wizards, wargs, war-goats and were-worms clashing amid these enhanced sequences.  

Take a look and let us know whether you think the MPAA's R rating was warranted or not.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Extended Edition marches into stores on Nov. 17, 2015.
