  3. Peter Jackson’s Third Hobbit Film Officially Has A New Name

    There And Back Again

    Oh dammit! Just the other day we had a report on how recent trademark applications meant Peter Jackson's last film in The Hobbit series might be getting a title other than the previously announced, The Hobbit: There and Back Again. Now we've got confirmation from the horse's mouth. " 'There and Back Again' felt like the right name for the second of a two film telling of the quest to reclaim Erebor, when Bilbo’s arrival there, and departure, were both contained within the second film. But with three movies, it suddenly felt misplaced—after all, Bilbo has already arrived 'there' in the 'Desolation of Smaug,' " Jackson explained on his Facebook page. Yadda, yadda, yadda, the new title for the third film is

  4. Wish She Could Be Part of Your World: On Tauriel-hate and Original Material

    Essay

    It’s a poorly-kept secret that we here at TMS are firmly on the side of Tauriel, the original female elf character in The Hobbit franchise whose mere existence created waves of discussion across the Internet. But some do not share in our enthusiasm. In fact, if you took a look around the fan ‘net in the months preceding The Desolation of Smaug’s release, there has been a distinctly anti-Tauriel sentiment in the air. Hiding behind a desire to preserve the sanctity of the source material, many commentators objected to her addition on purist grounds. Other became concerned about her rumored involvement in a love subplot with Legolas and/or Kíli, further indicated by a secondary trailer for the feature in which King Thranduil appears to caution her against pursuing relations with his son. But now we have surer footing from which to look at Tauriel, warrior, love interest, healer, and forum discussion whipping-girl. The actual film containing her appearance has emerged, and with it, a host of questions, concerns, and a fair bit of mud that this reviewer is willing to sling back.

  5. Benedict Cumberbatch Explains How He & Peter Jackson Made Dragon Porn

    It is a gift!

    "It was motion capture, so I did roll around a bit on the carpet. He’s talking about the dragon porn that happened a little bit later, in the sort of third installment of our work together…they built the platform in the main soundstage at the post-production facility down in Wellington and it was great. It was sort of above [the floor] so I had this kind of thing of superiority. They built a wooden platform on stilts and they had this hard board that they’d padded with some foam and mats and stuff and on top of that they put this sheepskin. It was literally like 'Baum chicka baum baum,' me up on my Smaug-y platform. I was like, 'This is cool, I can slink around like a porn star dragon.'" - Benedict Cumberbatch speaking with L.A. Times' Heroes Complex about his time working on The Hobbit. Porn star dragon. This man, I swear... He went on to add...

  8. Peter Jackson Says Smaug Fans Will Not Walk Away from Desolation Disappointed

    There And Back Again

    There's one thing we all know about modern monster movies, and that is that you can never really know whether they're going to let you get a good look at the monster. Are they going to tease it in the trailers and then reveal it early on? Or just keep teasing you with it the whole movie? Are you going to get one quick reveal before it slides back into the shadows, or will you actually be able to appreciate the design work that went into it without pausing the film? The way Peter Jackson is talking about Smaug these days, it sounds like we'll be getting a nice eyefull of Smaug the Terrible this weekend.
