The Air New Zealand team has always taken pride in the fact that Peter Jackson filmed his 'Hobbit' and 'Lord of the Rings' trilogies in their homeland, but they've taken it one step further for 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.' While some of the trailers have refrained from showcasing the evil dragon in his full form, the airline has plastered him all over their new 'Hobbit'-themed plane.

If you're like us, you may have been a little underwhelmed by the first 'Hobbit' movie, but the latest trailer for Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' seems not only action packed, but lacking in any scenes featuring long meals or songs.

'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug' is now just over a month away, bringing back Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Ian McKellen and that bumbling band of dwarfs to continue their journey to face down the evil dragon Smaug. But who are the new warriors we'll meet along the way? If you still don't know your Tolkien mythology, Warner Bros. has released seven new 'The Hobbit 2' character posters.

A few weeks ago saw 'The Simpsons' giving rise to one of its most elaborate couch gags yet, tasking horror master Guillermo del Toro to craft a glorious 'Treehouse of Horror' homage, but this time 'The Simpsons' has in mind to go a bit more epic. See the Simpsons family reimagined as 'The Hobbit' in an unexpected adventure across the map to reach "The Comfy Couch" in the latest parody!

In similar fashion to the marketing for the first 'Hobbit' film, Warner Bros. has revealed the latest Smaug-sized banner for Peter Jackson's second installment, 'The Desolation of Smaug.' But can it help pick fan interest back up after a less-than-stellar first go?

Is there a better voice for the evil dragon Smaug in 'The Hobbit 2' than Benedict Cumberbatch (aka the 'Star Trek Into Darkness' baddie)? If you couldn't get enough of his milky voice in the latest trailer, Warner Bros. has featured him again in two new TV spots.

For as long as producers and fans have touted the idea of 'Lord of the Rings' magnate Peter Jackson directing an episode of 'Doctor Who,' very little seems to have been set in stone, despite eagerness on either side. Most recently, another rumor broke this weekend that Jackson would finally direct Peter Capaldi in an episode of the upcoming series, though the rumor seems to have thoroughly been debunked.

Though it seems that Peter Jackson doesn't appear in 'The World's End' as he did in 'Hot Fuzz' -- he must have been a little too busy with those 'Hobbit' movies -- he's still friendly with director Edgar Wright, and stars Simon Pegg and Nick Frost (they did all work on 'Tintin' together). For the release of 'The World's End' Jackson has sat down with the three to have a chat about the movie.
