(Cbr) "Once Upon a Time‘s" version of the "Frozen" cast seems to be rounding out nicely. Executive Producer Adam Horowitz announced on Twitter that veteran actor John Rhys-Davies ("Raiders of the Lost Ark," "The Lord of the Rings") will play rock troll elder Pabbie, the love expert/wizard who helped cure Anna of the accidental ice blast when she and Elsa were children. He also helped to raise Kristoff. However, Rhys-Davies isn’t the only new addition to ABC’s fairy-tale drama. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Shameless" actor Tyler Jacob Moore has signed on to play the villain Prince Hans, whose machinations would have lea to him become king, had it not been for icy powers and love. The two join fellow newcomers Georgina Haig (Elsa), Elizabeth Lail (Anna) and Scott Michael Foster (Kristoff) for the fourth season, which premieres Sept. 28. »

I can hear the groans now. It’s kind of amazing the narrative change on Peter Jackson and his expanded “The Lord Of The Rings” hexalogy. The first trilogy, people loved and couldn’t get enough, clamoring for those extended edition DVDs, with more and more footage making for running times that were over three hours for each film. But cut to his new, not-as-well-received ‘Hobbit’ trilogy, and there’s a lot of bemoaning about the similar running times of these movies, in most social spheres. Well, perhaps that means run in the opposite direction unless you’re a hardcore ‘Hobbit’ fan, as Jackson says there’s about 25 minutes of extra footage that will probably be added to the DVD/Blu-ray version of “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.” But if you’re looking for an expanded “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” DVD, you’re probably out of luck. “The Smaug movie, »

This week: Catching waves with Noah, ogling The Other Woman, and a return to Twin Peaks. ► Like a crazy hybrid of ‘The Ten Commandments’ and ‘The Lord of the Rings,’ Noah is as implausible as it is entertaining – a biblical epic with an environmental kick not afraid to piss off purists. God is never mentioned by name (he’s called The Creator throughout), and, oh, those crazy »

We learned back in May that Anna, Elsa and Kristoff, the stars of Walt Disney Pictures' hugely successfulFrozen, are heading to ABC's "Once Upon a Time". They'll be played by Elizabeth Lail, Georgina Haig and Scott Michael Foster, respectively. Now, series co-creator Adam Horowitz has taken to Twitter to reveal two more Frozen additions: Tyler Jacob Moore ("Shameless") will play Hans while John Rhys-Davies (Raiders of the Lost Ark, The Lord of the Rings) will voice the rock troll King, Pabbie. »
The Comic-Con panel for The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies went online today, making this Monday especially delightful for those unable to attend the madness in San Diego over the weekend. “Huzzah!” Tolkien fans everywhere shouted.
The panel saw numerous cast and crew—including Peter Jackson, Benedict Cumberbatch, Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchett, Evangeline Lilly, Elijah Wood, and Andy Serkis—dole out trivia, make shocking confessions, and laugh with a costumed Stephen Colbert (seriously). Here are the highlights:

Update: Once Upon a Time has also cast Frozen's Prince Hans. Once Upon a Time has added John Rhys-Davies to its cast in yet another Frozen role.

As in Frozen, Pabbie is "gentle, wise and the source of unexpected insight." Photos Titans of Comic-Con: Stars Re-Create Classic Characters Executive producer Adam Horowitz announced the news via

Billy Boyd reprises his “The Edge of Night” theme from The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King as the hobbit Pippin in the trailer for the end of The Hobbit trilogy. He’s, of course, not in the trailer (he’s not alive yet), but he’s providing the tone for a trailer that promises an epic, emotional finale to Peter Jackson’s second venture into Middle-Earth.
There will also be dragons.
“The Defining Chapter” of the Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, will star Martin Freemanas Bilbo Baggins and Ian McKellen as Gandalf with Lee Pace, Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, Cate Blanchett, Richard Armitage, Orlando Bloom, Hugo Weaving, Billy Connolly, Christopher Lee, and Aidan Turner.

Peter Jackson‘s Hobbit trilogy wraps with the final chapter The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which he gave fans a sneak peek at over the weekend at Comic-Con. WB has now unleashed the teaser trailer seen first in Hall H, in which the heroes of Middle Earth must contend with the ferocious dragon Smaug and the fast-mobilizing forces of Sauron, the latter of which took center stage in The Lord Of The Rings. Here’s the new look at the December 17 release set to hit theaters in 3D, 2D, IMAX, and High Frame Rate 3D: Related: Q&A: Peter […] »
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 first trailer has arrived for the final chapter in Peter Jackson's trilogy adaptation of J.R. R. Tolkien's "The Hobbit". As promised, this one seems far more like "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy than either of the previous two - no more singing around the dining table, no more dwarf comedy antics. Instead there's a lot of fighting, a lot of armies advancing, and death on all sides.
Also out today is a swank new poster for the film featuring Bilbo himself.

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."

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies has a lot to live up to since Return Of The King was the third installment of The Lord Of The Rings and that film won Best Picture at the Academy Awards. While The Hobbit films have not been quite Best Picture worthy, I have no doubt that Peter Jackson plans to make this film the defining link between J.R.R. Tolkien's works on the big screen. After waiting a year since The Desolation Of Smaug, we now have our first full look at the trailer for The »

Jackson and almost all the major cast (McKellen, Freeman, Armitage couldn't be there) were in attendance to talk up the movie at a panel hosted by Stephen Colbert dressed in the outfit he wore whilst doing a cameo in "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug".
Jackson says lots of the film's effects are still being worked on and he's still doing some motion capture filming at this time. The tone of the new film is much darker, Jackson saying: "There’s a lot of sadness and tragedy. It's not as comical as the first Hobbit movie and they’re progressively getting to tone of Fellowship Of The Ring." He added that: "it’s always great when you can kill off some main characters. »

One of the briefest bits of Legendary's Comic Con panel this afternoon was the premiere of the first trailer for "Warcraft," filmmaker Duncan Jones' upcoming movie adaptation of the popular online role-playing video game which is still over a year from release.
Jones says the plot deals with the origin of the conflict in Azeroth between humans and orcs, and they're going with an origin to make what is essentially high fantasy accessible to everyone. Described as "Avatar" meets "The Lord of the Rings," the trailer then showed a lot of human vs. Orc violence ranging from sword fights to lightning shooting from people's hands in very colorful environs.
The company has also released an animated version of the logo which you can see below.

We’re still waiting for the great film based on a video game. Yesterday, there was the suggestion it might be an adaptation of The Last of Us. However, Warcraft offers up its own world (no pun intended) of possibilities. There is a rich mythology, but countless narratives. And now it’s up to Moon and Source Code director Duncan Jones to find that narrative. Last year, we got a cool announcement teaser for Warcraft. Now it was time for Legendary to up their game (again, no pun intended). Hit the jump for the Warcraft Comic-Con panel recap and the new Warcraft motion logo. Duncan Jones takes the stage to take some questions from moderator Jessica Chobot. Panel Highlights Notes that in November, the Warcraft Universe will have existed for 20 years, and there’s “a lot of stuff to draw on.” He believes the amount of material merits an origin »

It may be superhero day this Saturday in Hall H with both Warner Bros., and it’s DC Comics going up against Marvel—but the winner of Saturday morning Comic-Con has to be J.R.R. Tolkien fans. They were treated to expert moderation by the one-and-only Stephen Colbert (a supreme Hobbit superfan), shown a delightful reel of outtakes from the six films set in Middle Earth (dominated by the singular Ian McKellen), and given a full panel of actors (including Oscar winner Cate Blanchett). Not to mention a new Hobbit teaser trailer.
But that’s what they should be receiving for »

Hall H was buzzing earlier today, as Warner Bros. showcased their Comic-Con panel with Peter Jackson and The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit franchises. David Letterman's The Late Show successor, Stephen Colbert, hosted the panel and special appearances were made by a large number of The Hobbit cast: stars Andy Serkis, Lee Pace, Evangeline Lilly, Benedict Cumberbatch, Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchet and Elijah Wood. Below, is a description of the first trailer for The Hobbit The Battle of Five Armies. Then, finally, The Hobbit The Battle of Five Armies trailer played. It was a teaser. Bilbo says “I’ll remember everything that happened. Those who survived, those who didn’t.” There’s footage of Smaug blowing fire on Laketown, a decimated city, soldeirs and huge armies walking. Then, finally, Billy Boyd’s song from Return of the King hits, setting a somber, down tone. It promises the »
