Since the release of the second 'Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' trailer hit the airwaves during Tolkien Week, Peter Jackson and his crew at Warner Bros. have been light on the promotional material for the upcoming book-adapted flick. The director recently gave us a look at one of the new 'Hobbit' posters, which featured Bilbo holding his trusty "Sting" sword, but new images or sneaks at the film were scarce.
But now with the latest poster, some other characters from the highly anticipated December movie get their time in the spotlight.
For all the overseas talent that doesn't get its due recognition at award ceremonies like the Emmys, 'Doctor Who' has long been one of our favorites. Recently, 'Doctor Who' and 'Lord of the Rings' fans alike were delighted to hear that interest had been expressed back and forth for director Peter Jackson to helm a New Zealand-based 'Doctor Who' episode, but could it actually happen? And when would the episode shoot?
So we're exceptionally curious about 'The Hobbit' films now that Peter Jackson and company have decided to transform two pictures into three. We have no idea if this was a good decision, or just a chance to take advantage of audiences that fell in love with the first three films. What we do know are the titles of the trilogy and their release dates.
Now that we know Peter Jackson plans on diving his upcoming adaptation of ‘The Hobbit’ into three distinct chapters, fans are going to want to grab a pair of nerdy unique 3D glasses that no doubt will contribute to the wondrous experience of venturing back to Middle Earth again and again (and again). RealD 3D has you covered.
While you were getting pumped about the Olympics (yeah, no one does this), we were reporting on the week's most ridiculous news. From a 'Battle Royale' TV series on -- wait for it -- the CW to Martin Scorsese trying to convince us he uses Siri, we've got a breakdown of the worst and most absurd news from this week, in case you weren't paying attention.
Word out of Comic Con 2012 was that Peter Jackson is thinking about turning 'The Hobbit' - his two part prequel to the 'Lord of the Rings Trilogy' and adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic - into a trilogy. This was not just idle talk as he and the studios are now in "deep negotiations."
