Beautiful first teaser trailer for ‘The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies’

3 hours ago | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

The final chapter of Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy has its first teaser trailer and it is fantastic. The Battle of Five Armies promises to be an epic conclusion to the story of The Hobbit, while also being a transition to Jackson’s The Lord of the Rings trilogy, some of the greatest films of all time. Though the decision to split J.R.R. Tolkien’s 300-page novel into three movies was highly controversial for some, it happened and it is time to accept the films for what they are. Though The Hobbit was never going to reach the towering heights of The Lord of the Rings, it has been a fun and nostalgia filled return to Middle-earth. The trailer is haunting and emotional, with a fair share of beautiful imagery, and a rendition of “Steward of Gondor” from The Return of the King, as song by Billy Boyd’s Peregrin “Pippin” Took. »

Oitnb's Pablo Schreiber Is Really Hot Without That Pornstache

25 July 2014 1:44 PM, PDT | Popsugar.com | See recent Popsugar news »

Now that we've torn through the entire second season of Orange Is the New Black, we're doing everything we can to find out about season three. According to recent reports, Pablo Schreiber's infamous bad-boy character on the show, George "Pornstache" Mendez, might not be in season three. Of course, Pornstache is a hilarious presence, but we're going to go ahead and say it: we're not going to miss him. And it's not because he's so evil. It's because Pablo Schreiber looks so hot without a mustache. Maybe we never noticed before because we were so focused on John Bennett, aka actor Matt McGorry. If you're feeling a little incredulous about Pablo Schreiber's total hottie status, keep scrolling and allow us to convince you. Source: Netflix, Getty / Jamie McCarthy »

'Arrow' Season 3 Villain and 'The Flash' Crossover Details Revealed

22 July 2014 8:47 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

With just over three months left until Arrow returns for its Season 3 Premiere, the producers have yet to announce which villain Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will square off against this fall. Executive producer Andrew Kreisberg wouldn't reveal the new enemy's identity, naturally, but he did say that this season's nemesis will be much different than the revenge-driven Slade (Manu Bennett) from Season 2.

The season will be set six or seven months after the Season 2 finale, when crime goes down in Starling City and the police aren't chasing after Oliver's vigilante alter-ego. However, this year's villain will present a new set of challenges for Arrow.

"Slade had a very specific agenda-he was out for revenge and had set up this elaborate five-year plot. What's interesting about the villain in Season 3 is that he doesn't necessarily disagree with [Oliver]. He doesn't have any personal animus towards the Arrow, and he actually in some »

Arrow executive producer Andrew Kreisberg teases season 3′s new villain

22 July 2014 2:09 PM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Stephen Amell’s Oliver Queen has tussled with Malcolm Merlyn (John Barrowman) and Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) across the past two seasons of Arrow, and so far the producers of the DC superhero show have been keeping the new villain for the upcoming third season under wraps. However, that may not be the case for much longer, with executive producer Andrew Kreisberg telling EW that the new bad guy will be cast “soon”, as well as teasing their motivation.

“Slade had a very specific agenda—he was out for revenge and had set up this elaborate five-year plot. What’s interesting about the villain in season three is that he doesn’t necessarily disagree with [Oliver]. He doesn’t have any personal animus towards the Arrow, and he actually in some ways has a very similar worldview. [But] the Arrow is thinking too small. In some ways, as Oliver is struggling with »

Check Out Ian McKellen And Luke Evans In The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Image

17 July 2014 10:53 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Whatever your thoughts are on Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy when compared to the director’s Lord of the Rings trilogy, you certainly can’t fault him for casting. This new trilogy, which concludes in December with The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, has brought back Ian McKellen as the great wizard Gandalf and Orlando Bloom as archer Legolas, while starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins, Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, Benedict Cumberbatch as the dragon Smaug and Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, among many, many others. Now, we’ve got a new image from the trilogy topper, highlighting McKellen and Evans as they gaze, awe-struck, off-screen at what I can only presume is The Hobbit‘s collective worldwide box office haul.

Granted, the shot isn’t the most revealing, but it’s a nice reminder that this movie is on its way. So much attention »

Arrow Episode 2 & The Flash Episode 3 Titles Confirmed

15 July 2014 9:15 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

Following the reveal that Caity Lotz's Sara Lance will appear in the premiere, Craig Byrne over at Green Arrow TV has confirmed that the title of the second episode from the upcoming third season will be titled "Sara." What this means is anyone's guess, could we be getting some Sara-centric flashbacks? Or could something more tragic be happening to Sara? A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of meeting Manu Bennett (Deathstroke) and Katrina Law (Nyssa al-Ghul). Katrina shared with me that she would be shooting for an episode of Arrow in a few weeks, so this could theoretically be the episode she was referring to. It would definitely be cool to see what happened to Sara once she was separated from Oliver and how she eventually met Nyssa al-Ghul and the League of Assassins.  Byrne also confirmed over at Flash TV News that the title of the »
