5 New Photos & Poster For The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Arrive

29 July 2014 6:58 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Warner Bros. Pictures has released five dazzling new images from The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies.

Hard to fathom that this is our final journey to Middle-Earth since the original film, The Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring, was in cinemas in 2001. In case you missed the teaser trailer, check it out below.

From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

The film brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, »

The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies teaser trailer analysis

29 July 2014 3:47 PM, PDT | Shadowlocked | See recent Shadowlocked news »

The first teaser trailer for the final instalment of the Middle Earth saga, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, debuted at Comic-Con, and now Warner Bros have made it available online.

While the trailer contains some nice shots on a visual level, very much in keeping with the Lord of the Rings trilogy, about 80% of the trailer's awesome is provided by the song. Pippin's mournful song from Return of the King, that plays intercut with the doomed mission that Faramir leads on his father Denethor's orders, accompanies this trailer to great effect, lending it a dignified, elegiac beauty. It's a sad song, but sad is just happy for deep people...

According to Wikipedia (which has spoilers, in case you somehow haven't seen the Lord of the Rings trilogy yet), the song is called Edge of Night, with a melody composed by Billy Boyd himself, with lyrics adapted from Tolkien's »

Andrew Dice Clay Signs With Gersh (Exclusive)

29 July 2014 1:45 PM, PDT | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Continuing his career resurgence, Andrew Dice Clay has signed with Gersh for U.S. representation, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. The stand-up comic earned critical admiration last year for his turn as Cate Blanchett’s blue-collar brother-in-law in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine. He’ll continue to work with high-profile talent as a cast member in HBO’s untitled rock ‘n’ roll drama pilot, from producers Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and The Wolf of Wall Street’s Terence Winter and starring Bobby Cannavale.

Watch Stephen Colbert's Heartwarming 'Lord of the Rings' Speech

29 July 2014 9:05 AM, PDT | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

Stephen Colbert delivered a hilarious, heartwarming speech about his relationship with J.R.R. Tolkien's masterworks of Middle-earth and Peter Jackson's film adaptations of the Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit at Comic-Con this weekend. In classic Colbert fashion, he did it dressed as the Laketown Spy, his memorable, landmark cameo from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, bringing out his similarly dressed son to complete the adorable bit ahead of a panel on The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

New The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Images: Luke Evans Prepares for War

29 July 2014 8:44 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Fresh off yesterday’s teaser trailer debut, Warner Bros. has released a few new The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies images for director Peter Jackson’s final installment in his J.R.R. Tolkein saga.  This third Hobbit film will obviously cover the concluding events of the book, but will also likely cover much more ground from Tolkein’s appendices, as we glimpsed some truly epic footage of Lee Pace’s Thranduil doing battle and Ian McKellen’s Gandalf in a rather precious position in yesterday’s trailer.  I still don’t think the Hobbit films are near the quality of Jackson’s masterful Lord of the Rings trilogy, but during the Hobbit panel at Comic-Con last weekend, I did get the sense that Jackson really aims to go out on a high note with this one.  Here’s hoping he succeeds.

Curio: Suspect and Fugitive

29 July 2014 8:01 AM, PDT | FilmExperience | See recent FilmExperience news »

Alexa here with your weekly arts and crafts.   Nathaniel's banana Bond boredom from last week reminded me of a project that Seattle-based artist Kris Garland/Rakka Deer did back in 2008.  Titled Suspect and Fugitive, the series involved making one item a day from suspect (questionable) and fugitive (non archival) materials. This involved Rakka combining pop culture portraiture with food (and sometimes other materials) in new and clever ways every day for one year.

Like this pancake Cate Blanchett...

Maybe Nathaniel should try this.  Favorite actresses and foodstuffs maybe?  In any case, here is some more inspiration courtesy of Rakka from Donnie Darko to Doris Day after the jump »

The Comic-Con panel for The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies went online today, making this Monday especially delightful for those unable to attend the madness in San Diego over the weekend. “Huzzah!” Tolkien fans everywhere shouted.

The panel saw numerous cast and crew—including Peter Jackson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchett, Evangeline Lilly, Elijah Wood, and Andy Serkis—dole out trivia, make shocking confessions, and laugh with a costumed Stephen Colbert (seriously). Here are the highlights:

Cate Blanchett on unleashing Galadriel's dark side in 'Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies'

28 July 2014 4:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

San Diego - As Cate Blanchett warned during the "Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies" panel at San Diego Comic-Con over the weekend, fans should prepare for Galadriel to "lose her shit" in Peter Jackson's forthcoming finale. As a matter of fact, they should probably prepare for pretty much anything. "As Pete [Jackson] says, there's a lot of invention in this film and augmentation," said Blanchett. "So no one necessarily comes out unscathed or alive or dead or anything can happen." Indeed, Galadriel wasn't even a character in J.R.R. Tolkien's 1937 novel - though given the "invention" and "augmentation" Blanchett mentions, it sounds like the Elf leader will get quite a showcase in the fantasy threequel. "You get a sense in the very, very first 'Lord of the Rings' film that Galadriel has this dark side of her," said Blanchett of her character's journey. "I mean, things are only good if they've been tested. »

28 July 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Cineplex | See recent Cineplex news »

Billy Boyd reprises his “The Edge of Night” theme from The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King as the hobbit Pippin in the trailer for the end of The Hobbit trilogy.

There will also be dragons.

“The Defining Chapter” of the Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will star Martin Freemanas Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellen as Gandalf with Lee Pace, Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Cate Blanchett, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Hugo Weaving, Billy Connolly, Christopher Lee, and Aidan Turner.

Peter Jackson promises the biggest of big finishes in 'Hobbit: Battle of Five Armies' teaser

28 July 2014 1:20 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

"Will you follow me one last time?" It was interesting how different my reaction to Saturday's panel for "The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies" was to the reaction Greg Ellwood had. I agree with him that Cate Blanchett was positively radiant and that Stephen Colbert couldn't have been funnier in his unbridled nerd enthusiasm for all things Tolkien. I think everyone on the panel was great. I love these people, no doubt about it. And as I've written, I think the "Hobbit" films so far are good at what they're doing and getting better, while still not as great as the work he did on "Lord Of The Rings." What I had a problem with on Saturday was that the panel was at least twice as long as anything else Warner Bros. did. I guess at this point, financially speaking if nothing else, Peter Jackson and company have »

Cate Blanchett Proves She's a Time Traveler in Perfect '50s Look—See Her Throwback Style!

28 July 2014 12:31 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We knew Cate Blanchett was incredible, but we had no idea the Academy Award winner could transport herself from here to the past or that she owns a classy soda shop back in that other era where she exists! Her designer friend Fausto Puglisi was super sweet to create such cute little uniforms for the ladies of Blanchett's Burger Joint. Or does this cotton candy look have more of a Cate's Candy Castle feel? We love the idea of both, but we can't get behind this sock hop chic for a Comic-Con event circa 2014. Sure the style is light and airy for a hot summer day, but the capped sleeves and long length make a better fit for dumping potatoes in the fryer than signing autographs on the red carpet. So »
