If you’re a regular listener to the official Thn podcast The Hollywood Booze (online every Friday folks), then you will know that I’m not the world’s biggest fan of The Hobbit. I saw the first film in the planned trilogy (Zzzzz) a few weeks ago, and I cannot remember the last time that I experienced a cinema outing as an endurance exercise. However, I know that there are millions of Hobbit and Lotr fans out there, and I can’t wait to meet some of you this summer at Comic Con.

The news this morning is that the Peter Jackson directed The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has just passed the $1 billion point in box-office sales, so I guess we can consider the movie a success for Warner Brothers…?
