The Asylum is an L.A.-based studio with  a loud and proud history of distributing "mockbusters," low-budget rip-offs of Hollywood films, at the same time as their big-budget counterparts. For example, earlier this year they released 'American Warships' right before Universal's 'Battleship.' And while not often taken serious, they've gotten into legal trouble before with the major studios in town ('The Day the Earth Stopped' comes to mind), but this time they're facing their mightiest foe yet in the form of studios Warner Bros., New Line Cinema, MGM and producer Saul Zaentz, who are all looking to halt the release of the Asylum's 'Age of the Hobbits', starring Bai Ling and a host of little people.
Guess which movie that one was inspired by.

'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' the first film in Peter Jackson's 'Hobbit' trilogy, is hitting theaters in just  a month and a half now, and that means it's time for more promotional goodies to start popping out, including the official track list for 'The Hobbit' soundtrack. Back in the summer when Warner Bros. released the 'Dark Knight Rises' soundtrack list, it gave us some hints at what we could expect to see in the film. So, with the one for 'An Unexpected Journey' now available, what does it reveal about Bilbo and his band of merry dwarfs?

In J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit,' Bolg is one of the villainous creatures to inhabit Middle Earth, and wreak havok on Bilbo and his comrades. He's said to be the mightiest of the Orc Chieftains, so it only makes sense for Peter Jackson's team, in the movie adaptation, to model this guy after one of the most terrifying cinema villains of all-time: 'The Exorcist' demon.
