Now that Warner Bros already released "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
" in December and went on to gross almost $1 billion, it's now time to look forward to the sequel, called "The Desolation of Smaug," which is set to hit theaters on December 13th. Now comes word that the studio decided to move the third installment, called "The Hobbit: There and Back Again," from its July 18th, 2014 release to December 17th, 2014. The move is likely to maintain consistency and have all "The Hobbit" movies be released in December. It's also likely that Warners doesn't want to go up against all the summer blockbusters, like "X-Men: Days of Future Past." In related news, "Kick-Ass 2
" has been moved from its July 28th release date to August 16th. And "2 Guns," starring Denzel Washington
and Mark Wahlberg
, has been moved up by two weeks to an August 16th release.
