The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Extended Edition Coming in November

25 August 2015 11:04 AM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Fans of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit films have been anxiously awaiting the release of the inevitable extended version of The Battle of Five Armies, and today Warner Bros. have officially revealed when fans can pick it up, along with which new special features are included.  Come inside to take a look!

I think I've made it clear over the last few years, that I haven't exactly been a fan of Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy (for a variety of reasons).  However, I have felt that the extended edition versions of the movies have been more enjoyable for me as I watched them.  Perhaps that will be the case with Battle of the Five Armies, which hits blu-ray on November 17th, with 20 extra minutes of footage.  

And yes, as rumored/revealed a little while ago, this new version is in fact rated R.  Take from that what you will, »

Christopher Lee 1922-2015: Entertainment world pays tribute to acting icon

11 June 2015 5:14 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

The world of entertainment has been paying tribute to Sir Christopher Lee, who has died at the age of 93.

The prolific British actor was best-known for his work with Hammer Horror as well as The Wicker Man and The Lord of the Rings trilogy, and many stars and fans have paid tribute to the star on Twitter today (June 10).

It's terribly when you lose an old friend, and Christopher Lee was one of my oldest. We first met in 1948.

Sir Roger Moore (@sirrogermoore) June 11, 2015

I'm saddened by the deaths of Sir Christopher Lee and Ron Moody. Both starred in films that are treasured by millions.

— David Cameron (@David_Cameron) June 11, 2015

The great, always criminally underrated Sir Christopher Lee has left us. A Titan of Cinema and a huge part of my youth. Farewell.

Mark Gatiss (@Markgatiss) June 11, 2015

An extraordinary man and life lead, Sir Christopher Lee. You were an icon, »

The epic conclusion to Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy – and his Middle-earth series – The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has become just the second film of 2014 to cross $800 million at the global box office, with the fantasy epic pushing its global haul to $803.1 million this past weekend.

The Battle of the Five Armies remains the lowest-grossing instalment of the Middle-earth franchise behind The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring ($869.3 million), and is the second-biggest movie of last year after Transformers: Age of Extinction, which sits on $1.087 billion.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies crosses the $700 million mark worldwide

4 January 2015 11:15 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has become the eighth movie of 2014 to cross $700 million at the global box office, with the epic conclusion to Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy pushing its worldwide haul to $722.9 million this weekend.

The Battle of the Five Armies is now the fifth-highest grossing movie of last year, and looks like it should go on to overtake X-Men: Days of Future Past ($746 million), Maleficent ($757.8 million) and Guardians of the Galaxy ($772.6 million), which would leave it trailing only Transformers: Age of Extinction, which pulled in $1.087 billion.

In terms of Jackson’s Middle-earth saga, the final Hobbit movie remains in sixth place and will need to reach $870 million if it is to overtake The Lord of The Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which earned $869.3 million back in 2001.
