Amazon’s new Lord of the Rings series needs to be in production by next year, so who better to kickstart the process than Peter Jackson? The film franchise director is reportedly involved in pitching for the expensive new drama, but may not get the gig.
Yes, it’s easy to decry the permeation of film marketing and our obsession with trailers and posters and previews, but let’s just be honest with ourselves here: The ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ trailer is going to an event that rivals the release of most movies. Think back to the good ‘ol days of 1998 (”A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away...”) and remember how fans would buy tickets to ‘A Bug’s Life’ and ‘The Siege’ just to watch the teaser trailer for ‘Star Wars: Episode I.’ If you’re one of those people and want to replicate that experience, you’d better pre-order your ticket for ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies’ pretty soon.
We heard the rumors that the third of Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit' trilogy would be undergoing a title change and today, it came to pass. What was once 'The Hobbit: There and Back Again' is now 'The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.' What was once pleasant and sentimental is now battle-hardened and filled with promises of action. Take from that change what you will.
Yesterday was the premiere of the teaser trailer for 'The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug'. Fans around the world were treated with lots of cool new footage, including the first good look at Smaug the dragon. Sisters Kelli and Alex from theonering.net, who go by Happy Hobbit on YouTube posted a very excited reaction video to the trailer yesterday.
Peter Jackson's two-part film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's 'The Hobbit' is now going to be a trilogy. It was confirmed today after rumors have been circulating about Jackson making the film a trilogy.
Today, director Peter Jackson confirmed that they have wrapped principal photography on the two part film adaptation of 'The Hobbit'. The first part, "An Unexpected Journey" will be released this December on the 14th. The second part, titled "There And Back Again" will be released a year later on December 13th, 2013.
There's been quite the anticipation for the prequel to the Lord of the Rings movies, The Hobbit. A two part series that brought back director/producer Peter Jackson. He debuted 10 minutes of the movie, in which some loved it, and others...not so much. The mixed reviews come after Jackson shot the 3D movie in 48 fps (frames per second) instead of the industry standard 24 fps. See what some folks ha
