Extended Hobbit movies heading to cinemas in October

3 hours ago | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

You’ve read that headline correctly. It looks like Peter Jackson just can’t let it lie. Yes, extended versions of The Hobbit movies are heading to cinemas later this year.

With the release of the final ‘extended’ version hitting DVD, Blu-Ray and VOD channels in November – that’s The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies – all three will also hit U.S. cinemas in their extended form in October. We’re hearing that they will screen over separate nights starting October 5th, though it is not know if UK fans will get the same.

The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies extended version is clocking in at 174 minutes, a full half an hour longer than the theatrical cut, which was, quite frankly, long enough. Add that to the 182 minutes for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and 186 minutes for The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug, and you’ve got a nine-hour opus. »

Get ready to return to Middle Earth: Peter Jackson's extended editions of his Hobbit trilogy have been given a cinema release date.

'The Hobbit' Extended Edition Trilogy Hitting Cinemas In October

19 hours ago | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Peter Jackson's return to Middle Earth with "The Hobbit" trilogy wasn't exactly triumphant. Oh sure, the three movies earned just a shade under $3 billion at the box office, but the reception was middling, the high tech pizzazz wasn't as special this time around, and frankly, many wondered why we needed three more movies spun from a thin novella. At any rate, if you wanted even more, well, Christmas is in October this year. Warner Bros. and Fathom Events are bringing the extended editions of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," "The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug," and "The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies" to cinemas starting October 5th. Presumably it will be one film per night but it's not clear if this will be on consecutive evenings or one each week. And if you're wondering why Warner Bros. is even bothering with this, it's a pretty good way »

Say What You Will About the Academy - But Some Cool International Names Among 2015 New Member Invitees

30 June 2015 6:47 PM, PDT | Alt Film Guide | See recent Alt Film Guide news »

Academy invitee Eddie Redmayne in 'The Theory of Everything.' Academy invites 322 new members: 'More diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before' The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences has offered membership to 322 individuals "who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to theatrical motion pictures." According to the Academy's press release, "those who accept the invitations will be the only additions to the Academy's membership in 2015." In case all 322 potential new members say an enthusiastic Yes, that means an injection of new blood representing about 5 percent of the Academy's current membership. In the words of Academy President Cheryl Boone Isaacs (as quoted in the press release), in 2015 "our branches have recognized a more diverse and inclusive list of filmmakers and artists than ever before, and we look forward to adding their creativity, ideas and experience to our organization." In recent years, the Academy membership has »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced this week that the Los Angeles City Council, in a unanimous vote, approved plans for the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures. Construction will begin this summer, and ceremonial groundbreaking festivities will occur this fall.

“I am thrilled that Los Angeles is gaining another architectural and cultural icon,” said Mayor Eric Garcetti. “My office of economic development has worked directly with the museum’s development team to ensure that the Academy Museum of Motion Pictures will create jobs, support tourism, and pay homage to the industry that helped define our identity as the creative capital of the world.”

“We are grateful to our incredible community of supporters who have helped make this museum a reality,” said Dawn Hudson, the Academy’s CEO. “Building this museum has been an Academy »

Benedict Cumberbatch, Kevin Hart, Emma Stone and 319 others invited to vote for Oscar

26 June 2015 11:50 AM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

Strangely dropping a press release on a historic day where the nation's attention is elsewhere, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences revealed their annual list of new member invitees this morning.  For those who criticize the makeup of the Academy there was some good news and the stark realization the organization still has a long way to go. The Academy has spent the last eight to 10 years attempting to diversify its membership and this year's class mostly reflects that. There are significantly more invitees of Asian and African-American descent, but the male to female disparity is still depressing.  Out of the 25 potential new members of the Actor's Branch only seven are women.  And, no, there isn't really an acceptable way for the Academy to spin that sad fact. Additionally, It's important to realize the 322 people noted in the release have only been invited to join Hollywood's most exclusive club. »

Academy Invites Record 322 New Members in Push for More Oscar Diversity

26 June 2015 10:59 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences continues to push for diversity, sending membership invitations to 322 individuals, including a healthy number of people who can help change the org’s demos.

Among the invitees are David Oyelowo, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Felicity Jones, Emma Stone, Rosamund Pike, Bong Joon-ho, Justin Lin and Francois Ozon. The Academy has been reaching out to women, foreign-born artists and people of various races, ethnic backgrounds and ages.

Accusations of Academy bigotry surfaced yet again in January when the list of Oscar nominees included Caucasians in all 20 acting categories, and few women or racial minorities among the other categories. Director Ava DuVernay and actor David Oyelowo of “Selma” had seemed like strong contenders, giving many people hopes of breakthroughs. After initial anger at the Acad, activists began to shift their protests to industry hiring practices. For example, 323 films were eligible for 2014 awards — which means AMPAS should theoretically »
