Third ‘The Hobbit’ Film Receives A New Title

1 hour ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Peter Jackson’s first two entries in his Lord Of The Rings prequel trilogy have both been fantastic revisits to the world of Middle Earth, and I’m sure we are not alone here at Thn in our excitement and anticipation for the upcoming final part.

Last week we reported that the third film in the trilogy The Hobbit: There And Back Again may be renamed before its December release date at the end of the year. Now Peter Jackson has officially confirmed on his Facebook page that the film has indeed changed its title to…The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies. The title is maybe a little bit wordy but it does sound suitably epic for our final big screen adventure in Middle Earth. Jackson has also revealed that last years The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug will be receiving an extended cut with 25 minutes of additional footage, »

'Arrow': What you didn't know about [spoiler]'s death

8 hours ago | EW - Inside TV | See recent EW.com - Inside TV news »

Even after the Arrow writers made the tough choice to [Spoiler Alert times a billion] kill off Queen family matriarch Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson) in the episode that aired Wednesday night, there was still one more detail to hash out: How would Slade Wilson end Mama Queen’s life?

They knew the scenario — Slade (Manu Bennett) was going to eerily re-stage the tragic death of his beloved Shadow and, in a full circle moment, force Oliver (Stephen Amell) to pick his mother or his sister. (Ultimately, Moira would take that decision out of her son’s hands.) But the actual act of killing came down »

'Arrow' Ep On Finally Having Summer Glau Kick Butt

23 April 2014 10:37 AM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

Frosty businesswoman Isabel Rochev (Summer Glau) has been supercharged on "Arrow."

In last week's episode of The CW series, Slade Wilson (Manu Bennett) saved his associate from death by injecting her with what Executive Producer Andrew Kreisberg likes to refer to as "evil juice," aka - the Mirakuru serum. And it's about to turn her into an evil superforce.

But that wasn't always the plan. Originally, Summer's character wasn't going to kick butt at all.

Deathstroke: Arkham Assassin - Fan Film

18 April 2014 8:50 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

And boy does it deliver!! Going NoWhere Productions tries it's hand at giving Slade Wilson the portrayal it deserves. Given the recent exposure that Deathstroke has been receiving due to the appearences on the Arrow TV series (Manu Bennett's portrayal of the character doesnt hurt either), his popularity has been on the rise. Already counting with a very solid fanbase this sure makes it possible that the rumor of a Deathstroke film being in the works might just come true. In the meantime, the people at Going Nowhere Productions have made this small fan-film to hold us until the film becomes a reality, or at least until the next Arrow episode airs!! Taking place prior to the events in "Batman: Arkham Origins"... A bounty is placed on Batman by crime lord Black Mask,  drawing eight of the world's greatest assassins to Gotham City on Christmas Eve...  The most formidable of which is Deathstroke, »

'Orange Is The New Black' Season 2 Trailer Released, Focuses On Ensemble Cast

17 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

The trailer for the second season of Orange is the New Black, Netflix’s popular women’s prison dramedy, was released on Thursday.

Orange Is The New Black Trailer

“I am prepared to behave like a model inmate, and I feel I no longer pose a threat,” says Piper Chapman (Taylor Schilling) in voiceover at the start of trailer. Following the events in last season’s finale in which Piper gave Pennsatucky (Taryn Manning) a bloody beat down, it appears as though she’s still locked up in solitary confinement. “Sadly, it’s starting to feel like home,” she says when the warden check in on her.

Though Piper is the protagonist of Orange is the New Black, based off the memoir writer Piper Kerman, the show’s sophomore season looks like it's going for a broader scope, giving more time to the storylines of the supporting characters. Along with »

Orange Is The New Black Season 2 Trailer Is Next-Level Crazy

17 April 2014 4:29 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

I’m really looking forward to being reincarcerated at Litchfield State Penitentiary when Netflix’s hit prison dramedy Orange Is The New Black returns for its 13-episode second season this June. The show made We Got This Covered’s list of the top 10 TV shows of 2013, and there’s no reason to think that showrunner Jenji Kohan won’t deliver the goods yet again in Orange Is The New Black‘s sophomore year.

Today, Netflix revealed the first full trailer for season two of Orange Is The New Black, and suffice to say that fans of the show may go through the roof with excitement. There’s a ton going on, from protagonist Piper’s (Taylor Schilling) imprisonment to new arrival Vee (Lorraine Toussaint), and the preview crackles with the same pent-up energy that made the first season such propulsive viewing. Check it out below:
