Peter Jackson and his crew are returning to Middle-earth one last time, according to a new post the director wrote on his Facebook page. Jackson unveiled a lighthearted photo of himself and Ian McKellen, dressed as Gandalf, on the set of the "Hobbit" series.
Jackson wrote the following message to accompany the photo:
Back on set for our last Hobbit pick ups. Our last ever Tolkien pick ups, in fact. It's going to be an intense few weeks, but we're looking forward to shooting some powerful scenes with our great cast. Our next blog is coming soon!
Jackson and the gang are presumably filming scenes for the third entry in the "Hobbit" series, "There and Back Again," which bears the subtitle of the relatively short novel upon which the bloated trilogy is based. Both "There and Back Again" and the series' second movie, "The Desolation of Smaug," are currently in post-production. »

The Hobbit has begun shooting again in New Zealand.
Peter Jackson announced on his Facebook page that pick-ups had commenced earlier this week, on what are thought to be scenes for the final film, There and Back Again.
"Back on set for our last Hobbit pick ups," Jackson wrote. "Our last ever Tolkien pick ups, in fact. It's going to be an intense few weeks, but we're looking forward to shooting some powerful scenes with our great cast."
Once the second episode of the BBC drama has wrapped, its production will take a hiatus in order to allow Freeman to finish shooting The Hobbit.
Digital Spy recently spoke to several cast members about The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, who teased the second film's "darker" tone.

Two new posters have been released for Edgar Wright (Scott Pilgrim vs the World, Ant Man) and Simon Pegg's (Star Trek Into Darkness) new film, The World's End, ahead of a second trailer to be released later today. And you know where you can watch that? Why, right here on Flickering Myth, of course... *cough* cheap plug *cough*.
The film's villains, potentially aliens, can be seen in the posters' backgrounds. They're the ones with the evil Led eyes.
Best part about the above poster? "The Nick Frost". There must be imposters.
The World's End is the final installment in the 'Three Flavours Cornetto' trilogy. Here's the official synopsis:

Unused Goblin Designs - Andrew Baker Goblin Designs That Were Used Goblin King Designs From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” the first of a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The three films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.” The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their »
Well, all good things must come to an end, even in 48 frames-per-second. And Peter Jackson and his cast and crew have reassembled in New Zealand for the last few weeks of reshoots on "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" and "The Hobbit: There and Back Again," the last two entries in his "Hobbit" trilogy that began this past winter with "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
This is it. The end of Middle Earth and all of the funny wigs contained therein. To celebrate, Jackson updated his Facebook page, complete with a selfie of the director and a particularly worn-looking Ian McKellan (in full-on Galdalf mode). Pretty great way to announce the conclusion of production on a historic film series.
In addition to the photo, Jackson said a few words about the production: "Back on set for our last Hobbit pick ups. Our last ever Tolkien pick ups, in fact. It's »

After topping box offices around the world, and taking north of $175m. in its opening Us weekend, it very quickly became a question of not if, but when would Shane Black’s Iron Man 3 reach the $1bn. mark?
We’ve been expecting Iron Man 3 to become the latest member of that elusive club for some time now, and its early numbers across the globe confirmed that it was well on its way from the early stages of release. And now, twenty-three days later, it has officially joined the club and passed the threshold.
Black’s Iron Man 3 becomes the sixteenth member of the $1bn. club, joining the ranks most recently added to by The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Skyfall, The Dark Knight Rises, and (of course) The Avengers.
The latest blockbuster in the Marvel Cinematic Universe took the second-highest opening of all time in the Us, second »

At this rate, Marvel might be just as rich as “Iron Man 3′s” fictional billionaire playboy/philanthropist/part-time superhero Tony Stark, with the comic book threequel officially surpassing the much-ballyhooed $1 billion worldwide box office this week, making it just the 16th film to do so. (Though “Jurassic Park”, thanks to its recent 3D re-release, is threatening to make it the 17th film.) It’s looking likely that “Iron Man 3″ will overtake Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight”, which currently sits at #15 in all-time worldwide box office with $1.004 billion. It’s also not out of the question that ol Shellhead’s third outing could potentially catch up to #14′s “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” ($1.017 billion) and “Alice in Wonderland” (at $1.024 billion). As of today, “Iron Man 3″ has earned just a shade over $300 million domestically and nearly $700 million worldwide, thanks to the film bowing overseas first. The people most »
We have today learned that Iron Man 3 has officially grossed over $1 billion worldwide. It now joins the likes of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Toy Story 3, The Dark Knight Rises, Skyfall, and Marvel's The Avengers as one of only 16 films to accomplish such an impressive feat. The Shane Black helmed threequel has grossed $697.8 million overseas since being released and $301.9 million in North America. With Star Trek Into Darkness, The Hangover Part III and Fast And Furious 6 all set for release this month, the movie will start to drop lower and lower down the charts, but there's still a long way to go and many believe it will ultimately earn upwards of $1.2 billion. For now, we'll just have to wait and see. How many times have you seen Iron Man 3 so far? Marvel Studios’ Iron Man 3 pits brash-but-brilliant industrialist Tony Stark/Iron Man against »
Revenue nearly tripled to $481.7 million from $179.5 million.
In a report released Thursday, the privately held studio cited strong box office for “Skyfall” and “The Hobbit” plus the home entertainment release of “Skyfall” and James Bond library promotions.
The two films generated theatrical revenue of $139.5 million; home entertainment revenue amounted $201.7 million.
“In addition, we generated higher revenue from television content due to the domestic delivery of ‘Vikings,’ and higher net revenue from co-produced films as these films progressed through their distribution cycle,” the company said in the report.
MGM said the results did not recognize theatrical revenue for two titles it co-financed — “Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters,” released in January, or “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” released in March by Paramount.
“Skyfall,” a Sony co-production, has generated $1.1 billion in worldwide box office. »

The numbers do the roaring for MGM. In the first three months of this year it generated net income of $57.4M, +150.7% vs the period last year, on revenues of $481.7M, +168.4%. It shouldn’t be a surprise. With the late 2012 release of the James Bond film Skyfall, and a 50% stake in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the studio had $139.5M in worldwide box office revenues, up from $0.5M last year. The company says that it has to wait for costs to be covered before it can recognize revenue from two films it co-financed: Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and G.I. Joe: Retaliation. Home entertainment also was way up — to $201.7M from $36.2M — with the home video release of Skyfall and piggy-back promotions for its James Bond library. But worldwide television licensing was -3.2% to $109.3M. MGM’s 19.1% stake in Epix delivered $5M to net earnings, +16.3%. The results “exceeded our expectations” and “position »
