BREAKING MOVIE NEWS
Elijah Wood is back to celebrate The Hobbit: The Battle Of Five Armies, and this is how he's done it! Put your seat and tray table in its upright position, and proceed to watch this video safely.
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.
Just when you thought The Hobbit couldn't fit any more cast members from The Lord Of The Rings, one more has jumped aboard for one last song.
The legendary actor was present on the school’s campus to celebrate “the tremendous work the Equalities Team [has] been doing for more than a year now in promoting human rights, opposing bullying and in particular challenging homophobic language and behaviour in school,” according to the Chew Valley Web site.
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.
There’s no update on the ebaums page, so we don’t know for sure whether the dating couple in the Lord of the Rings video stayed together, or even got married. If they did, I hope this guy updated his material.
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.
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.
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.
This winter will see the final installment of The Hobbit film series released in theaters with The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. But with Comic-Con hitting this week, Peter Jackson is eager to start sharing some images from the highly-anticipated completion to his latest trilogy.
The Cinema Blend offices have been buzzing these past few days as we all get ready for one of the biggest events of the year in our industry: San Diego Comic-Con. The massive geek-fest will be kicking off on July 23rd, and just like every year we will once again have a team on the ground (including myself) covering the expo.
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.
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.
While Into The Fire may seem like a totally generic subtitle, the name could be borrowed from the sixth chapter of Tolkien's book, which is called "Out of the Frying Pan, Into The Fire" and tells the part of the story when Bilbo and the Dwarves has just escaped from the Goblin caves and start getting hunted by a pack of Wargs.
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is the second of a planned trilogy of movies based on J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Despite the fact it only covers a few chapters from the famous novel, the movie offers plenty of action and a striking ending that makes it a vast improvement over the first segment.
