Screenwriter Philippa Boyens Talks The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Bridging the Film to Lotr, the Extended Edition, Deleted Scenes, and More

22 December 2012 9:42 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey now playing around the world, it's time to post the last interview I did at the NYC press day and it's with screenwriter Philippa Boyens.  While Jackson gets most of the credit for the Lord of the Rings, Boyens has been an absolutely crucial part of the adaptations, having co-written Fellowship, The Two Towers, Return of the King, all three Hobbit films, and also acting as a co-producer on The Hobbit trilogy.  She's a key player in helping to bring J. R. R. Tolkien's work to life. During my extended interview we talked about the themes of The Hobbit, the differences between Hobbit and Lotr, setting up the Lotr movies in the beginning of The Hobbit, the eventual Blu-ray extended cut, deleted scenes, whether The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug will be the same length as An Unexpected Journey, what they »

13 December 2012 7:41 PM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

With Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opening this weekend, I recently got to interview some of the cast and filmmakers in New York City and all week I've been posting them.  Here's Andy Serkis, Richard Armitage, who plays Thorin Oakenshield, son of Thráin, son of Thrór, King Under the Mountain, and Weta Digital’s Sr. Visual Effects Supervisor Joe Letteri. During my very fun conversation with Martin Freeman (Bilbo Baggins) we talked about his reaction to seeing The Hobbit for the first time, whether or not he is looking forward to the additional filming next year, is he ready for the fame that comes with being the lead in a major movie trilogy, and more.  However, while talking about The Hobbit was great, the best part of the interview was discussing how he got the nickname "Little Martin" on the set of Edgar Wright's The World's End »

'The Hobbit': Billy Connolly cast as dwarf warrior Dain Ironfoot

8 February 2012 10:36 PM, PST | Pop2it | See recent Pop2it news »

Scottish actor-comedian Billy Connolly has been cast in "The Hobbit." He'll be playing dwarf warrior Dain Ironfoot, who is Thorin Oakenshield's cousin. Director Peter Jackson said in a statement, "We could not think of a more fitting actor to play Dain Ironfoot, the staunchest and toughest of Dwarves, than Billy Connelly, the Big Yin himself. With Billy stepping into this role, the cast of "The Hobbit" is now complete. We can't wait to see him on the Battlefield!"

If you'd like to geek out for a moment, here is the info on Dain. He's one of the Dwarves greatest warriors. He's the son of Nain, the grandson of Gror, the youngest son of Dain I if Durin's folk. Following his grandfather's death, Dain was created lord of the Dwarves of Iron Hills. After the death of Thorin Oakenshield, he succeeded Thorin as King Under the Mountain.

DVD Release: The Devil’s Rock

20 January 2012 1:45 PM, PST | Disc Dish | See recent Disc Dish news »

DVD Release Date: Feb. 14, 2012

Price: DVD $24.98

Studio: Entertainment One

Nastier than my ex: Gina Varela is a Nazi demoness in The Devil's Rock.

A shapely Nazi demoness ignites a bloody World War II battle from Hell in The Devil’s Rock, a 2011 action-horror war movie from New Zealand.

The film has a pretty straight-ahead albeit colorful story: On the eve of D-Day, two Allied commandos (Craig Hall of 30 Days of Night and Joseph Tane of TV’s  Spartacus: Blood and Sand) are sent to destroy a German gun installation. Moving forward on their mission, the pair uncover a secret occult lair housing a mysterious Nazi officer (Matthew Sunderland, Under the Mountain) and his beautiful but devilish captive (sexy Gina Varela). Well, it turns out the Nazis are actually hiding a deadly she-demon, whom they plan to use to turn the tide of the war.
