The Hobbit 2 Just Got An Epic Middle Finger From This Honest Trailer
It’s pretty easy to make fun of The Hobbit. Each of the films, including the original Lord of the Rings trilogy, come in at around three hours long, while they’re also slightly pompous and filled with moments that are borderline ridiculous. Still, even though it’s easy that doesn’t mean that it shouldn’t be done.

5 Big Hobbit Things You Have To Know Before Seeing The Battle Of The Five Armies
Much like the books they are based on, Peter Jackson’s Middle-earth movies are rather dense films. There’s not only an impressive number of characters to follow and plots to keep up with, but J.R.R. Tolkein also established a world with a full and rich history – and Jackson has worked to try and stay true to as much of it as possible.

The Hobbit Trailer, If The Franchise Was Condensed Into One Movie
The Hobbit was never planned as just one movie. Even in the years before the adaptation became a trilogy the plan was always to have the story unfold in at least two parts. But what if that wasn't the case? The trailer for that epic production might have looked something like this.

This Hobbit Music Video Is The Perfect Ending To The Trilogy
Next month, a 13-year-long cinematic journey will be coming to an end. Following in the footsteps of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, the Hobbit films will soon be concluding with an epic finale, and we have high hopes for a satisfying end that will provide an emotional conclusion for the big screen version of Peter Jackson's Middle-earth. Certainly an auspicious sign that it will succeed is this brand new music video for Billy Boyd's "The Last Goodbye."

The Hobbit's Final Battle Will Be Way More Insane Than We Thought
When Peter Jackson and the folks at Warner Bros. announced that The Hobbit would be split up into three movies instead of the announced two, many fans were outraged. But rather than just being a simple cash grab, it turns out that what is actually planned for the new trilogy's finale, The Battle of the Five Armies, is the most epic big screen Middle-earth war we've seen yet.

The Hobbit Trilogy Cost An Insane Amount Of Money To Film, Find Out How Much
The Hobbit film series is poised to be one of the highest grossing franchises of all time. And it better be considering how much Warner Bros has shelled out to make the trilogy: three times the cost of making Lord of the Rings.

Meet The Dying Man Whose Last Wish Is To See The Hobbit 3 With His Family
A Midwestern family have created a heart-wrenching video for their terminally ill father that will hopefully result in them all watching The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies before he dies. They don’t believe he will live to see it in the cinema, so they are hoping that they can get the attention of Peter Jackson and Warner Bros., who will then allow them to watch it together, which is something they have done for the past Hobbit films.

The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug Extended Edition Clip Has Bilbo Crossing A Dangerous Swamp
The scene shows Bilbo being used as a guinea pig for the group's safe passage, only for the dwarves to fall prey to the cursed waters of the darkened forest. Fans will remember that similar waters plagued the journey of Frodo, Sam, and Gollum through the Dead Marshes in The Two Towers.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Trailer Teases The Start Of An Epic War
Death and destruction are coming to cinemas this December. When we last left Middle-earth in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the titular dragon had been wounded by Bilbo and the band of dwarfs, but was still on its way to Lake Town - which he planned to burn to the ground. As a result, we can expect that things in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies are going to start off on a very dark note, and that's very much reflected in this new trailer.

Stephen Colbert Just Showed Up At Comic-Con Dressed Like This
Now that’s a handsome, nerdy devil having the time of his life. Humorously, looking around Hall H, there seems to be quite a few handsome nerdy devils having the time of their lives here too, as Stephen Colbert is absolutely killing it on the microphone, while simultaneously dropping the nerd knowledge hammer. Even Tolkien himself would have loved it.

Pirates Of The Caribbean: At World's End Was The Most Expensive Film Of All-Time
At $341.8 million before prints and advertising, it just barely laps the $339.5 million used by 1963's Cleopatra (which, before inflation, cost a then-preposterous $44 million). Not only does At World's End come in with that obscene total, but Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest rings in at $263.7 million.

The Third Hobbit Movie Is Now Called The Battle Of The Five Armies
So rest in peace There And Back Again, and long live The Battle Of The Five Armies. It feels as if Jackson is being diplomatic in taking partial credit for the change. While The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey was a billion dollar hit for Warner Bros., The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug “only” grossed $953 million, and was the first film in this series to gross less than $300 million domestically.
