Let’s just start with the bad news and get it out of the way. Since the third movie was first announced back at the end of July 2012, we’ve been telling you about the Hobbit trilogy. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hit theaters on December 14, 2012. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be released Dec. 13, 2013; the third installment in the series, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, will hit theaters July 18, 2014.

Well, not so much any more, as far as that last bit goes. Deadline broke the news that the third movie has been pushed out a bit. New premiere date: December 17, 2014. Sorry, friends.

So let’s move quickly on to the good news: The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be out on Blu-ray and DVD this month! March 19, in fact! And if you get yours home before March 24, you will get the access code to see a live »
