At the very end of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Peter Jackson teased our first look at Smaug the Dragon. This sculpture that was recently erected in the foyer of a cinema in Wellington New Zealand could very will be our first full look at the dragon that we will see in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
Apparently, this space is usually reserved for the statue placement of characters from the films of Jackson, such as TinTin, Gandalf, Gollum, etc. Here's a note from The One Ring...
So, we went to the new Star Trek movie last night at Roxy Cinema here in Miramar, Wellington and when we came out a statue was sitting in the middle of the foyer which either we missed or was put there during the movie. Not saying it’s Smaug or anything, but I took a picture for you to make your own mind up about it! »

We’ve been reporting that Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) had been cast as the lead in Universal’s Dracula Year Zero, and while the film still maintains the plot of following Prince Vlad (Evans) through his descent the film has dropped the Year Zero to be just Dracula. It has also added a co-star.

Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone—tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness.

Earlier this week Relativity Media finally found its leading man for the long-gestating remake of The Crow when Luke Evans (Immortals, Fast & Furious 6) was announced as having secured the role of Eric Draven in the latest retelling of comic book creator James O'Barr's supernatural revenge tale.
Evans secured the role ahead of rumoured candidates such as James McAvoy (X-Men: Days of Future Past), Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood), and the Welsh actor has wasted little time in discussing the forthcoming remake, which sees him stepping into the shoes of Brandon Lee, whose life was tragically cut short during the making of the original.
"[The Crow] was a very poignant film from my childhood, which I remember vividly," Evans tells ComingSoon. "The soundtrack, also. It was such a solid performance that Brandon Lee gave. It was a very tragic end for somebody that probably would have had a very promising career. »

Luke Evans certainly has a busy time ahead of him. Not only will he play Bard The Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug and the lead role in the new Dracula movie, but he's also signed on to star as Eric Draven in the upcoming remake of The Crow. When this remake was first announced, there were rumors that it would not follow the exact same plot as the original (and of course the original comic from James O'Barr) and veer off into new territory. But while talking to Shh about it, Evans says that although the character will undergo a bit of refreshing, we will be getting pretty much the same story. "[The Crow] was a very poignant film from my childhood, which I remember vividly. The soundtrack, also. It was such a solid performance that Brandon Lee gave. It was a very tragic end for somebody that »
After a ton of rumors and potential men taking on the role of The Crow, including Tom Hiddleston and James McAvoy, it’s the new Dracula who is taking the reins from Brandon Lee. That would be Luke Evans, who clearly has become a big name in Hollywood.
F. Javier Gutierrez’s film from Relativity Media will delay its start date to accommodate Evans, who has to work publicity on Fast & Furious 6 and The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug in the coming months. Luke Evans was their original choice, so they got their man. The Welsh actor, who recently signed onto Dracula Year Zero, has a big couple of years ahead of him.

Though last month brought news that Tom Hiddleston was in talks to take the lead in F. Javier Gutierrez's remake of The Crow, a deal was never finalized. Alexander Skarsgard was apparently also tapped for the part, but that never came to fruition either. Now Deadline reports Relativity Media has landed on Fast & Furious 6 villain Luke Evans to play Eric Draven, who's resurrected as The Crow to avenge his wife's murder so he can reunite with her in the hereafter. Evans is currently negotiating a deal, and it sounds like this will be the one that comes through for a film that has gone through several potential leads. More below! Evans was just recently given the lead in Dracula Year Zero and he also has a substantial role in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug later this year. Combine that with his bad guy turn in the aforementioned summer sequel, »

Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug) is a busy man. We reported mid April that he had been cast as the lead in Dracula Year Zero and now we hear that he’s taking on the lead, played in an earlier version by Brandon Lee, in the new version of The Crow directed by F. Javier Gutierrez.
Apparently while Luke Evans was the first choice, because of his busy schedule promoting The Hobbit sequel and starting his production on Dracula Year Zero, the team in charge for The Crow briefly looked into Tom Hiddleston (Thor) and Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood). Rather than going with either of these actors, however, they instead moved production to next year. This according to Deadline.

Almost a month ago Luke Evans was cast to play the lead character in Universal's Dracula, a film that has been in development for quite a long time, once attracting Sam Worthington in the lead role with Alex Proyas (The Crow, Dark City) directing. Proyas' project fell apart and now Universal is putting it back together with Evans as the first aboard to tell the story of a young prince who, when the lives of his wife and child are put in danger by a bloodthirsty sultan, risks his soul to save them, and in the process becomes the first vampire. First time feature director Gary Shore is helming the project, which should give you some idea of just what exactly Universal is putting together. Shore first came to the attention of most for his non-commissioned trailer for The Wolverine, which you can watch to the right. By the looks »

Starring as the head of a villainous gang of international car thieves in Justin Lin's upcoming Fast & Furious 6 , actor Luke Evans is gearing up to take on a slate of upcoming projects that should certainly interest genre fans. He's set to play Bard the Bowman in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again , take on the title role in Gary Shore's Dracula and, just announced over the weekend , Evans will play the lead in F. Javier Gutierrez's reboot of The Crow franchise. ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to catch up with Evans at the press junket for Fast & Furious 6 and, while we'll be running the full interview shortly, here's what he had to say about the projects rapidly filling up his calendar. "[The Crow] »
After rumors of James McAvoy, Tom Hiddleston, and Alexander Skarsgard taking on the lead role of Eric Draven in The Crow remake, Relativity Media has ended up casting Luke Evans in the movie. Evans starred in The Immortals, plays the villain in Fast & Furious 6, Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, and was just cast as Dracula in Dracula Year Zero.
Out of everyone that's been recently rumored to have the role, I think he might be the best choice. This time around James O'Barr's gothic comic book will be directed by F. Javier Gutierrez. The story follows a man brutally murdered who comes back to life as an undead avenger of his and his fiancée’s murder.
Whether you like it or not, a new Crow movie has willed itself into existence. All we can do know is hope that it turns out good.

Hey guys, remember a couple weeks ago when we mentioned that Tom Hiddleston was in talks to play the lead in the upcoming reboot of "The Crow?" Considering Hiddleston is still hot as hell thanks to his turn as Loki in the record smashing box office blockbuster "The Avengers," and that he was aggressively pursuing the role, it seemed like pretty much a done deal, right?
Well, not so much apparently, because according to Deadline, the folks at Relativity Media have decided to pass on Hiddleston after all and instead are planning to sign up Luke Evans to play the undead goth superhero.
In a way, of course, this isn't actually a huge upset. Evans, you see, was their first choice to play the role originally. But he was just so darn busy filming things like "Fast & Furious 6" and "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug" that he didn't have room »

After a lengthy search which has seen a host of actors linked to the part, Relativity Media has finally ended its search for the lead in the remake of The Crow, with Deadline reporting that Welsh actor Luke Evans has signed on to play Eric Draven in director F. Javier Gutiérrez's (Before the Fall) adaptation of James O'Barr's comic book series.
Since making his feature film debut in 2010's Clash of the Titans, Evans has racked up a number of roles, with appearances in Robin Hood, Tamara Drewe, The Three Musketeers, Immortals and The Raven. He will soon be seen as the bad guy in the action sequel Fast & Furious 6 and is also set to appear as Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and The Hobbit: There and Back Again as well as taking on his first lead role in Universal's Dracula reboot.
