By now you're well aware of the controversy surrounding Peter Jackson's decision to shoot 'The Hobbit' in 48fps, a higher frame rate that has given the movie, at least in the early going, a sped-up and slightly disorienting appearance. (Read our review right here.) It has almost exclusively dominated the conversation regarding the highly-anticipated prequel, and today we have Warner Bros. weighing in to assure us that, contrary to some reports, 'The Hobbit' in 48fps will not make you nauseous. Always nice to know!
Read the studio's full statement on the matter after the break.
Midtown Manhattan became Middle Earth today as the cast and crew of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' came to the Waldorf=Astoria hotel (yes, that weird equals sign is the correct way to spell it.) Film writers, bloggers and gurus were in attendance and ready to hear the well-rehe

Fair or not, we had better get used to this being the main topic when it comes to 'The Hobbit', at least during the first few weeks of release.
However, while the world at large must wait for the chance to make up its own mind regarding the film, we have six clips from the epic adventure to hold you over until it comes out. Check them all out after the break.
‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ is only two weeks away from release, and we're about to get word on the film.

'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' the first in Peter Jackson's movie trilogy based on the epic J.R.R. Tolkein prequel to 'The Lord of the Rings,' is one of the most hyped movies of the year. Fans of Bilbo's first great adventure will finally get to see it (at least part of it) on the big screen starting December 14, after we all have been teased by trailer after trailer after TV spot. As if you couldn't be even more amped for the movie, we're giving away what we're calling the "ultimate 'Hobbit' prize pack" that would drive any Tolkien fan mad with excitement.

But how is life-long Tolkien fan Stephen Colbert preparing? With a full week of 'The Colbert Report' dedicated to the film, and spotlighting its cast as guests! Who will be in attendance?
Meet Jeremy Telford. The Utah balloon-enthusiast (who, yes, has a handlebar mustache) recently spent approximately 36 hours over three days recreating Bag End - Bilbo Baggins' house from 'The Hobbit' - in his living room using over 2,600 balloons. Because, why the heck not.
