While looking up ROTS info at hollywood.com, I noticed that under the running time, it said "2 hours and 26 minutes".

Yeeha! that's 146 minutes of SW goodness!

According to C3 reports, The Rick said it will be 2 hrs 11 min IIRC.

Well, maybe it's 2hrs 11 mins without the credits. Either way, it's still probably gonna be the longest Star Wars movie.

I wish it was 3 hours long. It's going to be hard to leave the theater knowing that we just witnessed the final installment.

i think george wanted it to be like 4 hours long

Lucas has been quoted many times saying that he likes to keep the running times of his films as close to the 2 hr. mark as possible. If it ends up being longer than the other 5 films its doubtful it will be by very much.

New info. When I bought my ROTS tickets at the theater today, I asked the cashier how long the movie would be and she read from the computer that it would be "2 hours and 40 minutes". I honestly don't know what to believe anymore.

Its possible it could be that long but since many theaters include the trailers as part of the actual running time who knows. We'll find out soon enough though, just a little over three weeks left. :D

Well the reviews are starting to pour in and with that the actual running time seems to be 140 minutes. About what I expected.

TPM - 133 min
AOTC - 143 min
ROTS - 148 min

ANH - 121 min. (original version); 125 min. (special edition)
ESB - 124 min. (original version); 127 min. (special edition)
ROTJ - 133 min. (original version); 135 min. (special edition)

this is all according to this site:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

but it seems that ROTS has many different run times. either way, it will be over 2 hrs. darkhorizons gave it a run time of 142 min. so thats the best bet at what it will be.
