At long last, the sequel to Disney’s massively successful, if narratively weak, Alice in Wonderland is starting to roll cameras, with James Bobin replacing Tim Burton in the director’s chair. It took a suprisingly long time for this next chapter of the planned franchise to get off the ground, considering the first film broke $1 billion at the box office, but a press release indicates that filming is now underway.
Officially titled Alice in Wonderland: Through the Looking Glass, the follow-up finds the original actors returning to their roles, with a bevy of new stars joining both the live-action and voice casts. What the sequel is exactly about is still foggy, but the story is said to “revisit Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories with an all-new new tale that travels back to Underland—and back in Time.”

Johnny Depp returns to the big screen »
Disney met with some success in their live-action version of Alice in Wonderland (with Johnny Depp as the Mad Hatter), and since the film released, talk of a sequel has been on-going. Now, it's finally moved into production as the cast and crew have gathered together in anticipation of it's May 2016 release. Disney announced cameras have started rolling with a new cast list confirming both old and new members of the cast coming to the production.
I wasn't all that thrilled with Alice in Wonderland when it released. Not that it was a bad movie, I just didn't find it all that special or great. So it's tough to muster up much enthusiasm for this sequel, despite the impressive cast coming back for it. From the press release:

First seen in the hallowed halls of Comic-Con, the first teaser trailer for Peter Jackson’s final movie set in Middle Earth, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, has hit the wider world. Get ready for some nostalgia.
The trailer, which finds everyone suiting up for a final confrontation with the dragon Smaug, promises a climactic end to the three-part series. Gandalf, Biblo, Legolas, and others prepare for war, while we get brief glimpses of Smaug’s power—and even a wink from Sauron. Most notably, the teaser features “Edge of Night,” which was sung by Billy Boyd »

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. »

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."

San Diego — Saturday is traditionally the biggest day for Hollywood in Hall H and that means kicking off with Warner Bros. and ending the day with Marvel Studios. WB scheduled three panels for their two-hour block, which meant lots of room for surprises. 20th Century Fox psyched us out yesterday with no big revelations. Did WB deliver what fans were hoping for? Let's find out! 10:04 Am - Warner Bros. likes to go bigger and their huge full screens from left to right are unveiled to dramatic music. And this year...they go even bigger across the entire convention walls! 10:14 Am - Hardwicke then brings out "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" director Zack Snyder, who just flew in from set.

Today marks the anniversary, in the year 2941 of the Third Age (by Shire Reckoning), of Bilbo's departure from Beorn's Hall for Mirkwood, in the company of 13 dwarves and a surly wizard in Jrr Tolkien's literary classic The Hobbit. Today also marks the release by Warner Brothers of remastered, deluxe editions of the Rankin-Bass animated classics The Hobbit (1977) and The Return Of The King (1980). Sadly, Beorn does not appear in the Rankin-Bass The Hobbit (though he's played to the hilt by Mikael Persbrandt in Peter Jackson's version), but that is no reason not to celebrate these overlooked classics, all but forgotten in the post-Peter Jackson's Middle-Earth world. For all their flaws, they remain enthralling manifestations of Tolkien's created universe. The films hosts a wealth of phenomenal voice...

After the curious case of Edge Of Tomorrow’s surprise critical popularity, Rob investigates a strange Hollywood happening…
The release of Edge Of Tomorrow - which opened in the Us this past weekend, following its bow in the UK a week earlier - has brought, not for the first time, a strange Hollywood trend to light. And it's this: do we trust big stars to make decent movies anymore?
Many people, this writer included, took a lot of convincing to venture out and see Tom Cruise in a hugely expensive sci-fi spectacular (notwithstanding the fact that Cruise has fine form in science fiction). The film in question, Edge Of Tomorrow, is directed by Doug Liman of The Bourne Identity, and based on a graphic novel with a cool title. So surely this should have been a movie which audiences were enthusiastically anticipating? Yet It didn’t seem that way, »

"Frozen" not only won the Oscar for best animated film, but recently cracked the $1 billion mark at the worldwide box office. While we're focusing on such movies as "Godzilla" and "X-Men: Days of Future Past," "Frozen" continues to perform well and just became the fifth highest-grossing film of all time. "Frozen" has now grossed a whopping $1.22 billion, easily surpassing "Toy Story 3" ($1.06 billion) to become the highest-grossing animated film. But it has also just passed "Iron Man 3" ($1.21 billion), "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" ($1.12 billion) and "The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King" ($1.12 billion). The four films still ahead are way in front of "Frozen."

Thirteen years since the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, star Viggo Mortensen isn’t holding back in expressing his true feelings for the Peter Jackson trilogy. In a candid interview with The Telegraph, the 55-year-old actor calls the process of making the epic films an epic disaster.
Mortensen, who portrayed Aragorn in the trilogy, says Jackson and producers “were in a lot of trouble” before the first film proved to be a massive hit with both critics and moviegoers. “Officially, could say that he was finished in December 2000 — he’d shot all three »

‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’ trailer: New trailer for 2014 ‘Planet of the Apes’ film shows humans are the most dangerous apes of them all (image: Caesar in ‘Dawn of the Planet of the Apes’) The new Dawn of the Planet of the Apes trailer is out. Caesar and his fellow genetically modified apes enjoy a peaceful existence until created-in-God’s-image apes — that’s self-delusional humans — discover the Gmo apes’ hiding place in a lush forest. Much like gays were blamed for the AIDS virus a few decades ago, the virtuous and righteous humans (Gary Oldman among them) blame the Gmo apes for a virus that all but wiped out humankind. Enter the military, ever eager to save the world for peace and happiness by way of some heavy-duty weaponry. Needless to say, I’m ardently rooting for Caesar (Andy Serkis) and his fellow Gmo apes.

Today is "Star Wars Day." You know, "May the fourth," because it sounds like "May the force (be with you)." Get It??? There has been plenty of "Star Wars" discussion this week as the people threatening to give us a seventh film in this storied franchise dropped a few casting details on the world. People like Oscar Isaac and Max von Sydow and Adam Driver will be joining old timers Mark Hamill, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher for "Star Wars: Episode VII - Whatever Nifty Subtitle They Give It," and we'll probably be hearing about it constantly as the film forges on through production and post-production. To mark today's occasion, director J.J. Abrams and screenwriter Lawrence Kasdan offered up a video howdy, which you can watch below if these movies are your thing. In case it's not readily evident, they're certainly not my thing, but I can't very well be »
