Will Moviegoers Show Up One Last Time for 'The Hobbit'?

4 hours ago | Box Office Mojo | See recent BoxOfficeMojo.com news »

Beginning on Wednesday, fans of Peter Jackson's Middle Earth saga will have an opportunity to visit the fantasy world "one last time."Playing at 3,875 theaters, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies could earn as much as $100 million over its first five days. If it winds up near that level, that will put it on pace to earn well over $250 million total, which would be a solid result for this franchise finale.Meanwhile, two family titles*Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb and Annie (2014)*should do decent business when they open nationwide on Friday.The final Hobbit movie is opening almost exactly 13 years after The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, which began a trilogy of movies that earned over $1 billion at the domestic box office and nearly $1.9 billion overseas, while also winning a whopping 17 Academy Awards. Over a decade later, director Peter Jackson »

Latter-Day Sons of Anarchy Spun Its Wheels, But It Was a Ride Like No Other

10 December 2014 12:00 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Hey, did, you watch that two-hour block of Mercedes-Benz ads on FX last night, interrupted by bits and pieces of the Sons of Anarchy finale? I kid, sort of. The final chapter of Kurt Sutter's biker drama played, perhaps inevitably, like an extended denouement, at times like a batch of deleted scenes unwisely affixed to the real end of the season's main story: Jax Teller figuring out that his mom, Gemma, impulsively killed his wife, Tara, then blamed it on the Chinese, sparking a bloody war. That story line effectively ended last week, in a lovely, horrible sequence that was drawn out in that distinctively quiet, menacing, Sons of Anarchy fashion, reminding us again that creator and executive producer Kurt Sutter got his start in live theater and, artistically speaking, never entirely left it.It started at a retirement home where the suddenly spiritual Gemma had gone to reconnect »

Film Review: ‘Iraqi Odyssey’

1 December 2014 5:58 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Revolutionary hope, coups and counter-coups, then exile: Such is the distressingly common pattern for millions of middle-class Arabs from the mid-20th century until now. Single-monikered helmer Samir uses members of his extended family as archetypes of this diaspora in his overlong yet surprisingly engrossing docu, “Iraqi Odyssey,” designed to capture the vicissitudes of Iraq’s troubled history via one clan’s personal take on the last century. The perfunctory use of 3D and excessive running time won’t attract more viewers, but fest programmers understanding the need to demystify a nationality often seen only in one-dimensional form should take a look.

Two versions of the multi-lingo pic exist: one with Arabic narration and English subtitles, the other with English voiceover and Arabic subtitles. Unfortunately, the grating delivery of the actors hired to do the English voiceover, spoken as if part of a theater production for children, requires considerable mental »

Cameron Diaz hosts 'Saturday Night Live' this weekend -- talk about it here!

22 November 2014 3:00 PM, PST | EW.com - PopWatch | See recent EW.com - PopWatch news »

It pains me to write this, but: Cameron Diaz has had a rough few years, career-wise. For the past half-decade, she's starred mostly in films that failed critically, commercially, or both. The role call: Sex Tape, The Other Woman, The Counselor, Gambit (which wasn't even released theatrically in the Us), What to Expect When You're Expecting, The Green HornetKnight and Day, and The Box. (A few exceptions: Bad Teacher, which got mixed reviews but grossed over $100 million—enough to inspire both a quickly-canceled CBS sitcom and a sequel, which is still in development—My Sister's Keeper, which landed more »

Good Look at The Necromancer From The Hobbit Trilogy

16 November 2014 9:00 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

The mysterious and dark character known as “The Necromancer” has been kind of a haunting character in the first two Hobbit movies. He’s just preparing to strike when the time is right. As I’m sure you already know, this is actually the Dark Lord Sauron from The Lord of the Rings. The character will be voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch in The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies, and today we have an image that gives us a good look at the character. We got a half a second glimpse of him in The Desolation of Smaug. I happened so fast I'm sure a lot of people missed it. In case you missed the last trailer for The Battle of Five Armies, you can watch it here.

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. »

Till I Can Get My Satisfaction: Kurosawa’s Striking Psychosexual Marathon

Past traumas hopelessly infecting the present factor significantly in Kiyoshi Kurosawa’s monolithic psychosexual thriller, Penance, a five part made-for-television miniseries that premiered back in 2012 for North American audiences at the Toronto Film Festival, now receiving a limited theatrical release. Like many of Kurosawa’s best known works, he explores the ripple effects of tragic circumstances and their continually endless warping effects, perhaps sometimes seen as a metaphor for cultural tendencies at large. His latest plays like a tangential murder mystery of crossed paths, finally looping back to a finale that leads to more complicated depths, not unlike something David Lynch would do in this similar format of impressively orchestrated subplots and characterizations that makes for viewing in one sitting a head spinning ordeal.

Peter Jackson details the great battle in the final Hobbit film

24 October 2014 7:17 AM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

The final chapter in Peter Jackson's Hobbit trilogy hits theaters in just under 2 months and as the title subtly hints at . . . there may be a battle involved. Jackson recently spoke up about the intricacies involving such a large-scale battle that I'm sure is going to eat up some serious screen time. What we have here is some concept art, followed by a rudimentary map by Jackson that lists the location of said armies and where they'll be coming from. Below that »

What are the Most Expensive Movie Trilogies of All Timec

22 October 2014 12:37 PM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

One of the most talked about pieces of news today surrounds the report that Peter Jackson's The Hobbit trilogy, which will come to a so-called "definitive" end on December 17 with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies has already run up a $745 million price tag when you take into account the production budget on all three movies. Make no mistake, that's a lot of money, and it really calls into question the so-called $281 million budget for the first three Lord of the Rings movies, but that's what's been reported, though I have seen it as high as $310 million. Taking all this into account I decided to start doing a little research so I hit up Box Office Mojo (and Wikipedia when necessary) in an attempt to find out just what exactly are the most expensive movie trilogies of all-time and I have a list of 50 of them directly below. »

Watch Benedict Cumberbatch Give One of His Most Menacing Performances

21 October 2014 4:00 PM, PDT | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

This video is either A) Benedict Cumberbatch in a motion capture suit performing a scene for The Hobbit or B) The. Most. Intense commercial for acne spot treatment you’ve ever seen. If you answered A, congratulations… you have no imagination/are correct (however you wanna look at it). In this b-roll footage for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, we see Cumberbatch not just lending his rich baritone voice to the menacing dragon Smaug, but bringing a physical performance as well. 

The middle film in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit trilogy has been available on Blu-ray and DVD for some time, but the 3D release on those formats will be hitting shelves November 3rd. The final chapter, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, hits theaters December 17th.

In 2007, Eddie Murphy earned an Oscar nomination for his dramatic turn in Dreamgirls. In the years since then, he’s spent his time getting terrible reviews (Meet Dave, A Thousand Words), voicing a donkey (Shrek the Third, Shrek Forever After), or planning sequels to old hits (Beverly Hills Cop 4, Triplets).

Revisiting Buck Rogers In The 25th Century

19 October 2014 11:48 AM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Andrew time travels 35 years back to revisit the theatrical release of the Buck Rogers In The 25th Century film...

Once synonymous with science fiction, the phrase ‘That Buck Rogers Stuff’ once called to mind everything the average person thought about Science Fiction - ray guns, rocket ships and robots. Certainly in the 1928, when the then-christened Anthony Rogers made his debut, he was something pretty unique in Sci-Fi - the space adventurer as swash-buckler. Given the nickname ‘Buck’ by John F. Dille, the novel, Armageddon, was adapted into the comic strips in 1929 and then in 1932, Buck Rogers became the first major Science Fiction radio drama. 1939 saw Larry ‘Buster’ Crabbe take on the role for a 12-part serial. All of this is to say that Buck Rogers was around for quite a while before many people of my generation discovered him.

Buck Rogers In The 25th Century arrived on UK shores via the medium of cinema. »

Resident Evil TV Series In The Works

13 October 2014 3:34 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

It seems we just can't escape this franchise. After the next Resident Evil movie, German production house Constantin Film is planning to put out a TV spin-off. No word on whether it'll use the same cast/characters, but since Constantin also produce the films it's definitely a possibility. A show based on Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes is also on the cards after the big-screen adaptation of the first novel in the series, City Of Bones, bombed at the box office. Filming on the next Resident Evil movie ("The Final Chapter") was delayed recently when star Milla Jovovich announced that she was pregnant, and there is currently no release date. Will you be glad to see a tv show? Or were you hoping this next film would be the final nail in the Resident Evil coffin? Sound off below. »

Funds ponder future in digital age

9 October 2014 8:41 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

White paper unveiled at Power to the Pixel sets out six challenges facing funds in the digital age.

Funds need to re-think how they operate if they want to remain relevant in the digital age, according to a white paper unveiled at Power to the Pixel’s Cross-Media Forum.

The study, entitled “Understanding Funders”, is a joint venture between the Canada Media Fund (Cmf), Quebecois cultural agency Sodec and Power to the Pixel.

“The digital technology boom has unbalanced international content production and distribution markets and has also upset our industries’ economics,” said Cmf CEO and president Valerie Creighton, who spearheaded the study alongside Sodec chief Monique Simard and Power to the Pixel CEO Liz Rosenthal.

The paper, she said, grew out of a discussion between Simard and Rosenthal at Mipcom last year over how funds like Sodec and the Cmf, and their counterparts around the world, could stay relevant in “an ever-growing, ever-changing content »
