For as much as popular culture loves the classic fantasy works of John Ronald Reuel Tolkien, such as The Lord of the Rings, The Hobbit, The Adventures of Tom Bombadil, and so many others, little focus have ever been placed on the author behind the worlds that has captivated readers (and viewers) for nearly a […]
With the holiday sugar highs and tryptophan lows now faded, family members who over-stayed their welcomes heading back – but kids still home from school – it is understandable if some of you are more than a little done with the whole "Christmas Spirit" thing. If the thought of one more Christmas movie gives you indigestion, […]
Apparently we'll be getting a Hobbit in space, because Dominic Monaghan has just been revealed as part of the Star Wars: Episode IX cast. Monaghan, of course, has done more than just playing one of the Fellowship in Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy of films — he was also one of our favorite tv show musicians on LOST, Charlie […]
By now, we all know the headline: in November 2017, Amazon Studios spent $250 million to outbid Netflix for television series rights to J.R.R. Tolkien's world-renowned Lord of the Rings fantasy series. Produced in conjunction with the Tolkien Estate and Trust, publisher HarperCollins, and New Line Cinema, the project will explore new storylines preceding The Fellowship of […]
Dominic Monaghan, one of our favorite Hobbits and actors from LOST, stopped by for a cross continental chat ahead of the kick off of Los Angeles's Screamfest film festival. Dom is an ambassador for 2017's Screamfest, which is the largest female-run and longest running horror film festival in the U.S. They run from Tuesday October 10th […]
After five years of court battles, Warner Bros and the estate of J.R.R. Tolkien have settled an $80 million rights dispute over the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. The suit was filed by the Tolkien estate in November of 2012 against the studio and their subsidiary New Line and the rightshoulder Saul Zaentz […]
There is a rumor that the first teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice may be out as soon as next month. That would seem like a long time before the movie's release date of March 25, 2016, almost too early to do a teaser. But if you think about it, normally a […]
Did you see the evil jester? Surprise. Nicely done, Peter Jackson.
Kind of a mouthful, but I guess it sounds a bit more exciting than its first name.
When do we get a trailer for the next Hobbit film, whatever it's going to be called?
Warner Bros. have recently registered that name and while it's not clear why, it's doubtful that they'd be doing it 'just because' at this stage of the game.
Some unexpected anecdotes, quick meet-and-greets with members of the movie's orchestra and explanation of Howard Shore's thinking behind this picture's cues and tunes.
I like The Hobbit and I like Lego, but which one is best? There's only one way to find out...
A year from now this film is suddenly going to be a whole lot better than it is now. Well, from one point of view at least.
Thanks to Lucy Keeler…
And, ultimately, I think I actually like it this way.
The Master of Laketown seems to have become a wonderful creation, Stephen Fry's behaviours crusted over and soaked in corruption.
The man behind Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit will be the focus of the latest Hollywood biopic.
In some ways, we've come on a lot since Myst. In other ways... not so much.
