Last week, we reported that The Hobbit: There and Back Again, director Peter Jackson's final installment of his three-part J.R.R. Tolkien novel adaptation, may be re-titled The Hobbit: Into the Fire. Earlier today, the filmmaker revealed on his Facebook page that the title is being changed, not to The Hobbit: Into the Fire, but to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Here's the director's full statement, where he explains why the title change was made, less than eight months before its release, and teased details about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug's extended cut arriving later this year.
Our journey to make The Hobbit Trilogy has been in some ways like Bilbo's own, with hidden paths revealing their secrets to us as we've gone along. There and Back Again felt like the right name for the second of a two film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, »
Over the past few months, some of the actors who stopped by the set of Terrence Malick's "Knight Of Cups" have shared their unique experiences working on the movie. Joel Kinnaman described having to deal with a seventeen-page monologue, Cate Blanchett called it a "quasi-religious" experience, Teresa Palmer talked about Malick's method of "torpedoing" the actors, and Antonio Banderas thinks he's made the final cut, though some of the material he doesn't even remember shooting. And now another actress reveals that she too has probably survived the editing process, but adds that we'll perhaps be waiting much longer to see the finished product.Yesterday we ran into "Electric Slide" actress Isabel Lucas and her director on that film, Tristan Patterson, as they made their rounds at the Tribeca Film Festival. We couldn't help but ask what she had coming up next, partially because we were kind of curious if »

Not every animation perfects that balance of a film that spans the audience generation, but 20th Century Fox’s How To Train Your Dragon 2 looks set to continue its trend of finding a niche in the market and making it utterly accessible to all. Today you’ll get to watch the first five minutes of this second outing for Hiccup (voiced by Jay Baruchel) and Toothless five years after the events of the original.
Now we have dragons and vikings on the same side, what else can they bring? Well, it seems from this brief look that we’re due to expect a whole lot of adventure, humour and a definite connection that alters from your usual outing. While Astrid, Snoutlout and the rest of the gang are challenging each other to dragon races (the island’s new favourite contact sport), the inseparable heroes are going freefall skydiving, charting »

Remember back in 2011, when Terrence Malick released the literally indescribably powerful film “The Tree of Life” and let it be known that he had no less than three more films on their way? For a man whose entire, near-40 year career had so far yielded only four movies, it was thrilling to learn that it might take just four years to get as many again...…and then everything got strange. Malick's next release, “To The Wonder,” was poorly reviewed (though not by us), his mysterious documentary “Voyage of Time” met legal roadblocks that have since been resolved, and his next drama, “Knight of Cups,” continued shooting with its extraordinary cast—Cate Blanchett, Isabel Lucas, Antonio Banderas, Wes Bentley, Imogen Poots, Freida Pinto, Teresa Palmer, Ryan O'Neal, Jason Clarke, Joel Kinnaman—but appeared to get no nearer to completion.Increasingly, it has become clear that “Knight of Cups”, as is standard practice for Malick's work, »

The 2010 Dreamworks feature How To Train your Dragon, based on the books by Cressida Cowell, garnered both commercial and critical acclaim for the animated studio, with many fans interested to see where the story would go next.

Prepare for the welcome return of Hiccup and his loyal steed Toothless in the sequel to 2010′s epic How To Train Your Dragon.
Returning to the now harmonious Viking dwelling of Berk five years after we left it in the original story, we now find human and dragon working together happily. Astrid and Hiccup’s peers now use their dragons for racing instead of game, while his father Stoick has his sights set on his son inheriting Berk’s leadership after him. Of course Hiccup has other plans, mainly spending his days exploring unchartered territory with his scaly friend.
The new acceptance of dragons as friend not foe allows Hiccup and Toothless to roam the lands freely, providing ample opportunity for the story to move to new lands and importantly, new dragons. Now minus a leg as the result of the last film’s show down, »

Oscar 2015: Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will return as Oscar show producers (photo: Craig Zadan and Neil Meron) Craig Zadan and Neil Meron will be back as producers of the 2015 Oscar ceremony, Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences president Cheryl Boone Isaacs announced yesterday, April 21, 2014. This will mark Zadan and Meron’s third consecutive year as Oscar producers. In the United States, the 87th Academy Awards ceremony will air live on ABC on Oscar Sunday, February 22, 2015. Last March 2, the Zadan- and Meron-produced 2014 Oscar telecast brought back Ellen DeGeneres, whose performance as Oscar host drew mixed reviews — some loved the pizza; others hated it. Besides pizza delivery, the Oscar telecast also featured the presence of veterans Kim Novak and Sidney Poitier; musical performances by U2, Pharrell Williams, and Idina Menzel (aka "Adele Nazeem," as per John Travolta); in addition to a tribute to The Wizard of Oz performed by »

Yahoo Movies has posted the first 5 minutes of this summer's How to Train Your Dragon 2 and it appears as if the good folks over at Dreamworks Animation have another home run on their hands. The voice talent, score, and visual animators are all going big here and I can't wait to see the rest of the movie. 2010 was a great year for animated movies (Toy Story 3, Tangled, Despicable Me) but I'd say that the first How to Train Your Dragon was the biggest surprise of them all. It was a largely original story, had an epic scope, and contained flying sequences that rivaled anything James Cameron did in his masterful Avatar. Few movies, whether animated or not, have been able to pull off telling an epic story while also having a real and relatable dramatic feel. The first movie was a resounding success and all indications are that »

Welcome to the new era of movie marketing, where studios aren't just content to show you a couple of trailers and hope you'll show up. Nope, they will pour on the clips, TV spots and in this case, serve up an opening chunk of the movie, all in the hopes that through sheer advertising exhaustion (or genuine interest) you will show up and fork over some cash for tickets and popcorn. So it goes for "How To Train Your Dragon 2." DreamWorks has thrown the first five minutes of the film online, with Jay Baruchel's distinctly voiced Hiccup introducing viewers to the sequel and cluing them in on what has happened since 2010. Picking up five years after the first movie, Gerard Butler, Craig Ferguson, America Ferrera, Jonah Hill, T.J.
