Box Office Numbers: Last weekend of 2013 y'all

With five or so new movies releasing to theaters on Christmas Day, I had no idea what film would reign supreme. I figured with all of that competition The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug wouldn't snag the top spot again, but I was wron...

Box Office Numbers: There and back again

Last week I had forgotten to predict a movie would win the weekend, and good thing I didn't because I would've been completely wrong here. I knew The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug had at least another week, but man did it dominate.&n...

Third trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

This newest trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is a bit different from the previous one. The footage is mostly the same (maybe two or three different scenes), but the dialogue is cut much differently. There are new speeches to...

The Simpsons also did a Hobbit couch gag

Now that I'm News Editor of this fair site, expect a lot more plugs for The Simpsons than usual (although it still won't be for just anything). For instance the last time a cough gag was featured here, it was directed by Guillermo Del Toro...

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 Desolation of Smaug, is ...
