Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire has a running time of 156 minutes and 54 seconds, according to the British Board of Film Classificationopens in new window. That's a mere six seconds shy of what we reported earlier this month based on a reliable source (who apparently rounded up).

Veritaserum reportsopens in new window that the final 13 minutes, which contain the film's credits, are worth sitting through to get some extra laughs.

This length makes it the second longest Potter film after Chamber of Secrets, which clocked in at 161 minutes, even though the book is twice as long.

The BBFC recently rated Goblet of Fire 12A, meaning no one under 12 years old may see the movie without an accompanying adult. The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) rated the film PG-13 in the U.S. which places kids under 13 under the same restriction.
