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

47 minutes ago | 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.

Simon Pegg Seems To Hint That It'll Just Be His Voice We Hear In Star Wars: Episode VII

56 minutes ago | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

During a Sdcc interview, Benedict Cumberbatch kinda sorta seemed to imply that his Star Trek co-star Simon Pegg might have been cast in Star Wars: Episode VII. This, and the fact that Pegg had been glimpsed on the set, led many to draw a forgone conclusion -- but all may not be as it seems. When asked about all of this by Vulture, Pegg actually doesn't come right put and deny it, but seems to try to throw people of the scent by using some very specific wording. Have a read for yourselves and see what you think: "Well, J.J. uses me in different roles, and we’re good friends. I feel like my face in Star Wars would pop people out of the movie. Look, I love Star Wars, and I don’t want people to watch and go, Oh, there’s Simon Pegg’s face. The film »

Simon Pegg Plays Coy on Star Wars Rumors

1 hour ago | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Simon Pegg is no stranger to keeping sci-fi secrets: For the better part of a year, he contented to refute the rumor that his Star Trek Into Darkness co-star Benedict Cumberbatch was playing Khan, even though that turned out to be the case. Now, though, turnabout is fair play, because at Comic-Con this past weekend, Cumberbatch seemed to imply that Pegg is an unannounced part of the cast of Star Wars: Episode VII (which, like Star Trek Into Darkness, is directed by J.J. Abrams). We caught up with Pegg last night at an East Hampton screening of Hector and the Search for Happiness hosted by Serena & Lily, and when asked about the rumors, he got … well, let's just say very cagey.Here's the whole exchange, if you'd like to parse it for clues: Regarding Benedict Cumberbatch’s recent comments about you being on the set of Star Wars, are you »

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

1 hour ago | 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.

15 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Caped Crusader has made his mark on Comic-Con.

Warner Bros. left the San Diego fanfest on Sunday on a very high note, with “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” the most talked about film on Twitter, according to new data provided to Variety by research firms Mashwork and Way to Blue.

Around 73% of all emotional reactions to the trailer for the film, which will feature Batman and Superman on the bigscreen for the first time, considered it “amazing,” Mashwork said, while the reveal of Gal Gadot in costume as Wonder Woman was one of the biggest moments on Twitter, with the official photo from the studio retweeted over 7,000 times.

The first teaser of Batman lighting up the Bat signal and looking up to see Superman hovering in the distance with glowing red eyes, received 248,960 mentions and 24,550 (10%) intent-to-view mentions over the course of the convention, Way to Blue said.

Jesse Ehrman and Racheline Benveniste will oversee for the studio.

Comic-Con 2014: Hollywood’s Highs, Lows and No-Shows

20 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As the place where Hollywood now launches the marketing campaigns around its upcoming films, TV shows and videogames — like “The Avengers: Age of Ultron” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice” to smaller films like “The Giver” and “Horns,” along with new and returning TV shows “Game of Thrones,” “Flash” and “Gotham” — this year’s Comic-Con revealed the runaway successes and upcoming headaches for the industry’s marketers.

Here are the biggest takeaways from the fanfest that wrapped Sunday:

“Jupiter” Descending: Warner Bros. had a bigger problem beyond the need to complete special effects sequences when it made a last minute decision to move sci-fi actioner “Jupiter Ascending” from the summer to February 2015: a lack of interest in the movie. A trip to San Diego’s Comic-Con won’t help. A presentation in which star Channing Tatum’s mic didn’t work and the Wachowski siblings weren’t present, »

Empire's The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Covers Are Here

20 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Luke Evans' Bard the Bowman was left in a pretty difficult spot at the end of The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug. A particularly angry dragon is about to light him up, and chances are the rest of Lake-town may end up a little on the crispy side. Now, we're putting you in a similarly awkward, although slightly less perilous predicament of having to pick one of the two new The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies covers shown below.Your pickle is definitely prettier than Bard the Bowman's but it's still one well worth thinking about: will you chose Benedict Cumberbatch's vengeful wyrm, or be seduced by the sheer ruggedness of one of fiction's most famous arrow despatchers?

20 hours ago | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

If you’ve read our big breakdown of the various stories emerging from Comic-Con, you probably know that Peter Jackson showed up with a teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, the final chunk of his latest big Tolkien trilogy. While not everything shown at Hall H is here, the trailer has at least arrived via the sorcery of the Interwebs.As the title suggests, there’s a massive great scrap in the offing, especially given that the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) finished off the second film with a promise to go all scorched earth on Lake-town.And Five Armies picks up the story quickly, showing us the conflict everyone has been waiting for since Jackson announced his intention to turn The Hobbit into three films. If you don’t already know, the title refers to goblins and wargs (one army, supported by scary bats) facing off against dwarves, »

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

21 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. »

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies Trailer and Poster: Peter Jackson’s Trilogy Concludes in Epic Fashion

21 hours ago | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Warner Bros. has released the first The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies trailer for the final chapter in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy.  This is the trailer they showed us at Comic-Con on Saturday, and it's interesting to see how the prequel trilogy is trying to pull into The Lord of the Rings by using "The Steward of Gondor", which was sung by Pippin (Billy Boyd) in The Return of the King.  The song still works here because it's sad and somber, but the line that sticks with me from this trailer is when Thorin asks his company, "Will you follow me one last time?"  It's a line that's really directed towards the audience, but there's a weariness to it that's surprising.  It's almost like saying, "Well, we've already come this far.  May as well finish it out."
