First official trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

I love how they're claiming The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is "The Defining Chapter" in the story since the book itself is only a fraction of all of this. In what is most likely the most bloated title of the serie...

Here's the plot of The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies

You might think you know what The Battle of Five Armies is about, but do you really? The Hobbit is only a short children's book after all and yet there's another 2-plus hour long epic coming that takes its plot and ...

Desolation of Smaug trailer reveals Smaug's voice

I actually came out of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey really enjoying it, but I do admit it had its flaws. One of which was that it felt really stretched over a thin plot. I don't think the second film, The Desolatio...

These Hobbit PSAs advocate equal treatment for Balrogs

Dorkly has mocked up a few PSA posters for the folks of Middle Earth and the results are pretty funny. My favorite is in the header, but a close second has to be the "No Elevensies" poster (a reference to that heart stammerin...

New Hobbit banners continue tradition of Hobbitness

Four new banners for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey have recently shown up, each one sufficiently Hobbity and depicting various moments from the book. No surprises here, though I think I prefer the super-long banner for Th...

Peter Jackson may turn The Hobbit into three movies photo
Peter Jackson may turn The Hobbit into three movies
by Hubert Vigilla

During the Comic-Con, Peter Jackson showed off 12-minutes of footage from The Hobbit, the first part of which (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey) comes out this December. Even though principle photography wrapped more than a week ago, Jackson indicated that he may shoot more footage and make a third Hobbit film.

There's no word on what The Hobbit III: Elevenses with a Vengeance might entail. It probably won't split the Battle of Five Armies into its own movie. Jackson's hinted at an extended edition of The Hobbit, so the choice additions to the fight will appear in that. It might be a movie that connects The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings, but that seems superfluous -- a sort of third film as third nipple. Expect updates on this as we learn more.

In the gallery is the Comic-Con poster for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The film hits theaters on December 14th.
