Peter Jackson talks 3D in the latest production video from The Hobbit

Friday, November 4th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant It has been quiet in the world of Hobbit-dom lately.  After a flurry of images from the set, an then the individual photos of the 13 dwarves, things have slowed down.  But today director Peter Jackson released another production video from the set and this time, the talk was on the […]

Peter Jackson will direct the sequel to The Adventures of Tintin

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

Posted by: Zack Bruce After Peter Jackson gets done with THE HOBBIT, he will move on to another mo-cap effort– the sequel to THE ADVENTURES OF TINTIN. The plan for the trilogy went as follows: Steven Spielberg directs the first film, then Peter Jackson takes the second, and the third goes to, well, an unnamed […]

Peter Jackson releases a group photo of the Dwarves from The Hobbit

Thursday, July 21st, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant I know a lot of people out there are super-hyped about THE HOBBIT films and they’re especially excited about all the dwarf news that has been coming out. Since I haven’t read The Hobbit and am not in the know, it’s hard for me to hop on the bandwagon and get […]

The 13 Dwarves in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Now that all 13 Dwarves have been revealed, I thought it would be a good idea to recap everyone we’ve seen so far.  Obviously, the Dwarves play a very important part in THE HOBBIT and each one has a specific role.  Click the names to go to the post that details […]

Peter Jackson shows us the final Dwarf; Thorin Oakenshield

Sunday, July 17th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant If you’ve been keeping track, Thorin Oakenshield was the 13th and final Dwarf that had yet to be revealed.  But saving (arguably) the best for last, Peter Jackson revealed today the first look at Thorin and the goblin cleaver Orcrist.  You can click this link to see all of the images […]

Two more dwarves show up from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Friday, July 15th, 2011

Posted by: Zack Bruce Wow. There has been an overwhelming amount of dwarf photos from Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY. While I appreciate each and every dwarf as they are important to the overall story, I wish that they would have done a group photo or something. Today’s look is at Balin (Ken Stott) and Dwalin […]

Peter Jackson reveals the first look at Bombur, Bofur and Bifur from The Hobbit

Thursday, July 14th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant How many characters are in THE HOBBIT?  I’m just asking because I haven’t read the books in almost 15 years, but I’m trying to guess how many more of these “first looks” we’re going to get.  The credits for this movie are going to be 20 minutes long if we keep […]

More Dwarves; Peter Jackson reveals Kili and Fili from The Hobbit

Tuesday, July 12th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Is it possible to be overloaded with promo images and marketing propaganda that you’re sick of the film almost 18 months before it’s due to hit theaters?  I think Peter Jackson is running that risk with the slow release of images of minor characters from THE HOBBIT, not to mention the […]

Peter Jackson sits down with Andy Serkis in another production video for The Hobbit

Saturday, July 9th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Web production videos typically don’t work very well because the people involved don’t want to be there and then when they get there, they usually don’t have anything interesting to say.  But Peter Jackson is the exception and he seems to enjoy doing the web videos and keeping everyone appraised of […]

A First Look at the dwarves Oin and Gloin in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

Friday, July 8th, 2011

Posted by:Zack Bruce The latest photo release for THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY has me the most excited right now. In this first look, we get to see Oin (John Callen) and Gloin (Peter Hambleton). Gloin is the father of one of my favorite LOTR characters, Gimli. The film is due to release December 14th, […]

First image of Dori, Nori and Ori in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Warner Brothers has released another promo image from THE HOBBIT, this time giving us a look at the dwarves Dori, Nori and Ori, played by Jed Brophy, Adam Brown and Mark Hadlow.  I’m not very good at writing in a sing-songy vernacular, so I’ll let the official press release tell you […]

Top Ten reasons to do a Lord of the Rings Blu-ray marathon this Fourth of July weekend

Saturday, July 2nd, 2011

by Brad Sturdivant I’ve been looking forward to this July 4th weekend for quite some time now.  No, it’s not because I’m looking forward to eating hotdogs and potato salad with a group of old friends, it’s because the Extended Edition of the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy hit Blu-ray this past Tuesday and that […]

More images of Ian McKellen and Martin Freeman in The Hobbit

Wednesday, June 29th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Well, if you’re a true LOTR fan, then you picked up the Extended Edition collector’s set yesterday and are eagerly anticipating doing a 14 hour marathon this weekend of the trilogy.  But if you’re yearning for something new to the Tolkien universe, then allow me to present to you a couple […]

Evangeline Lilly and Barry Humphries join The Hobbit

Sunday, June 19th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Peter Jackson hopped on his Facebook page today to announce that two more cast members have joined his epic two-part film THE HOBBIT.  Evangeline Lilly (‘Lost’) and Barry Humphries (voice of Bruce in FINDING NEMO) join the already stellar cast.  I could paraphrase for you, but it’s best to let the […]

Luke Evans and Benedict Cumberbatch confirmed for The Hobbit

Thursday, June 16th, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant With THE DARK KNIGHT RISES hogging all the casting announcements, I had almost forgotten that another huge tent-pole film from the folks over at Warner Brothers was also finishing up its casting.  As many fans are eagerly anticipating THE HOBBIT, today comes news that future A-list actor Luke Evans has signed […]

Peter Jackson reveals the titles and release dates of The Hobbit films

Tuesday, May 31st, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Although I’m not terribly excited for THE HOBBIT, it’s safe to say there are many, many people out there that are waiting on the edge of their seat to return to Middle Earth.  Peter Jackson knows this, so he and the marketing strategists at New Line/WB have done a fantastic job […]

Orlando Bloom is definitely returning to Middle Earth in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Surely no one is surprised by this news, but since it is now confirmed I must report that Orlando Bloom, who played the ridiculously attractive elf Legolas in THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, will indeed be reprising the role in THE HOBBIT. Of course we don’t yet know to what […]

Saoirse Ronan no longer attached to Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Friday, May 6th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant In a bit of sad news, it’s been reported that Saoirse Ronan will definitely not be in the upcoming films THE HOBBIT, she was rumored for some time to be set to play the elf Itaril. There are too many other projects that interest her right now and it wasn’t going […]

Hugo Weaving will return to Middle Earth in The Hobbit

Monday, May 2nd, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Since everyone who was involved in Peter Jackson’s THE LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy appeared to be coming back to THE HOBBIT (if they were intended to have a role), I still find it surprising when an actor is confirmed because I just assumed that they would be coming back. However, […]

Ian Holm will join Elijah Wood and Ian McKellen in returning to Middle Earth for The Hobbit

Saturday, April 23rd, 2011

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant The original Bilbo Baggins (or “OBB” as his friends call him) himself, Ian Holm, will in fact be returning to Middle Earth to reprise his role as the elder Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT.  At this point in the casting news, I think anyone who appeared in any of […]

Peter Jackson shoots a video on the set of The Hobbit

Thursday, April 14th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant One thing I like about Peter Jackson is that he really likes communicating with his fans. Whether or not you are excited to see THE HOBBIT PARTS 1 & 2, it’s still always fun to see what happens behind the scenes. It appears that Jackson will be shooting videos here and […]

Flight of the Conchord’s Bret McKenzie will return to Middle Earth, but not as Figwit

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Last week it was reported that Peter Jackson wanted Bret McKenzie (of ‘Flight of the Conchords’ fame) to do a small role in THE HOBBIT. Little did we know, he had appeared in the original LORD OF THE RINGS: THE FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING and RETURN OF THE KING as the […]

Flight of the Conchords Bret McKenzie may reprise his role as Figwit in The Hobbit

Thursday, March 31st, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant I’ve never claimed to be a huge LORD OF THE RINGS fan, but now that I’ve learned that one of my favorite television characters was in the film and may reprise his role in THE HOBBIT, I may have to revisit the franchise sooner than I intended. Bret McKenzie, best known […]

Photo of Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins on the set of The Hobbit?

Wednesday, March 30th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant The spy who was sneaking around the set of Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT earlier this week has revealed another couple of photos, and this time it looks like we’re getting a first (blurry) glance of Martin Freeman who plays the lead hobbit Bilbo Baggins. We also get another backside shot of […]

New set photos from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Tuesday, March 29th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Some new photos have cropped up from the set of THE HOBBIT and although they are really blurry and hard to make out…well what do you expect? I don’t think the guy taking the photos is professional spy or anything, he did the best that he could and he even labeled […]

Neil Gaiman’s American Gods being adapated and coming soon

Monday, March 28th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Neil Gaiman fans can collectively squeal, as we have learned that his famous 2001 novel AMERICAN GODS is being adapted into a feature length film. The story follows an ex-convict named Shadow, who upon being released from prison discovers some terrifying secrets about his wife and the world he now lives […]

Peter Jackson on the set of The Hobbit

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant Some new photos of Peter Jackson on the set of THE HOBBIT have been released, and as it was the the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, it’s a beautiful scene. Too bad it’s Peter Jackson in the shot, he’s not really the person I would like to see on the set, […]

Set photos from The Hobbit

Monday, February 21st, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant So below are a couple of set photos from the upcoming Peter Jackson film THE HOBBIT and to be quite honest, I don’t think there is anything too exciting to show. However, I know how much my readers are looking forward to their trek back to Middle Earth so I just […]

Even with Elijah Wood and Ian McKellen, I’m still not looking forward to The Hobbit

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

Posted by:Brad Sturdivant After the rousing success of the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, some fans started asking for Peter Jackson to make Tolkien’s other Middle Earth book, ‘The Hobbit’, into a movie that would rival the greatness of the LOTR trilogy.  Even then, I couldn’t count myself in the camp that actually wanted to […]

Saoirse Ronan still not confirmed for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Tuesday, February 15th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant I’m guessing since Peter Jackson had that hiccup with his stomach, maybe things aren’t moving along as smooth as he’d like which is why Saoirse Ronan is not completely signed on for THE HOBBIT. Or maybe all this talk from the casting director Ros Hubbard was just wrong. Either way, she’s […]

The Hobbit cast gather together for a group shot

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant When I first found this story I was so excited to see a group shot of the cast for the upcoming Peter Jackson epic THE HOBBIT.  Then I realized that it’s just Martin Freeman (who plays Bilbo Baggins) and a bunch of people I’m not familiar with who are going to […]

Saoirse Ronan will join Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit

Friday, January 28th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant It has been confirmed by a casting agent, Ros Hubbard, that Saoirse Ronan has joined the cast of Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT.

Warner Bros will distribute The Hobbit

Friday, January 7th, 2011

Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant With all of MGM’s financial issues, they went ahead full force supporting Peter Jackson and his upcoming film THE HOBBIT.  They financed it but weren’t going to be able to distribute it, lucky for them Warner Bros. has come in to save the day. Warner Bros. has taken over international theatrical […]

Today we learn that British actor James Nesbitt (known for his roles in MILLIONS and televisions Cold Feet) will play Bofur.  Bofur is described as “a disarmingly forthright, funny […]

Watch the teaser trailer for The Wind in The Willows

Sunday, July 18th, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant I really think my parents should have made me read more when I was a kid.  It seems like every week there’s a classic children’s book that’s being turned into a movie and I have no idea what the book is about.  The first time I ever heard of RAMONA AND […]

Warner Brothers and MGM begging Peter Jackson to direct The Hobbit

Tuesday, June 15th, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant When Guillermo del Toro decided not to direct the two HOBBIT films, fanboys around the world fell into a deep depression that the their only worthy candidate to replace Peter Jackson was now out of the game.  But today we learn that both MGM and Warner Brothers are now pushing hard […]

Guillermo del Toro leaves The Hobbit, Peter Jackson looking for replacement

Sunday, May 30th, 2010

Posted by: Brad Sturdivant Although I originally wasn’t excited about the prospect of bringing J.R.R. Tolkien’s ‘The Hobbit’ to the big screen, I was becoming more and more excited about the project as details started to emerge.  I liked that Peter Jackson was producing but not directing and I loved the idea of Guillermo del […]

The Lovely Bones

Wednesday, January 20th, 2010

Like many people, I love THE LORD OF THE RINGS TRILOGY.  Peter Jackson has proven he has the capability to do anything.  I will give anything he directs a shot.  THE LOVELY BONES is a great, heart wrenching story that I think under the right care could be a favorite of mine.  However, as emotional […]
