The Hobbit: There and Back Again

  1. 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

  5. Desolation Of Smaug Synopsis Explains How The Second Hobbit Movie Will Fill 3 Hours

    Questions! Questions That Need Answering

    Just the other day I was having a conversation with my brother about Peter Jackson's The Hobbit. The only exposure he'd had to the story was the Rankin/Bass animated feature we grew up on and he was surprised there would be three whole films from Jackson. "But aren't they already up to the dragon?" he asked. Yes. Yes they are. Thanks to a new official, and in-depth summary, we now know exactly what to expect from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Take a look.

  6. The Hobbit Finally, Definitely Wrapped Filming. For Real This Time.

    There And Back Again

    Middle Earth has already released the likes of Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, and Orlando Bloom back into the real world, and now, finally, even director Peter Jackson is saying goodbye to the The Hobbit sets. Filming for the final Hobbit film concluded on Friday, assuming, of course, that Jackson does not decide to split the book up further into six or twelve movies, at which point it will officially have more installments than Sherlock. Regardless, it was a melancholy day for Jackson and his crew as they wrapped up shooting, and Jackson shared photos of his final hours on the franchise that has been part of his life for 15 years on his Facebook page.

  16. New Hobbit Photos Get Us Up Close & Personal With Dwarf Hair (Among Other Things)

    There And Back Again

    We're still a few months away from being able to enjoy Peter Jackson's first Hobbit film in theaters so I, for one, am thankful to have more pictures to tide us over. Most of these new ones come via a new app Warner Bros. has released called "Hobbit Movies" (couldn't come up with anything more creative, guys?), while some are just better looks at promotional shots we've already seen. From the app description, "View a selection of animated character portraits, travel through a detailed map of Middle-earth and explore the stunning narrative imagery of 'The Scroll' artwork to immerse yourself in the world of Hobbits, Dwarves, Elves, Orcs, deadly Wargs, giant Spiders and fearsome Dragons." Basically, it just gives us some nice close-ups of dwarf hair, or lack thereof. Enjoy!

  17. The Hobbit Trilogy Watch: Part 2 Gets a Name, Part 3 Dated

    As everyone already knows, Peter Jackson has split up his production of The Hobbit into a trilogy, instead of just two movies like he initially planned. That's old news. Now that he's ripped that band-aid off, Jackson has released the new trajectory of the trilogy, including names for both the second and third parts of the series, and the release date for the last movie.  Not much has changed about the first two movies; both films are coming out the same day as Jackson originally planned. Not everything about the second movie is as it was, though. Now that it isn't the final movie in the series, "The Hobbit: Part Deux" has a new, Smaug-ier name.

  18. The Hobbit Movies Get Name Changes, New Release Dates

    There And Back Again

    Noelle Stevenson's reimagined elf king Thranduil as Legolas' speciesist party dad is here to tell you that the three Hobbit movies now have updated names, updated release dates, and updated swagger, now that his character design has been revealed in the form of Lee Pace in a shiny tunic. We were already pretty certain that the first installment of the story The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey would be December 14th. Sure, Peter Jackson and Co. managed to get permission to stretch the story across three films since San Diego Comic Con. But that decision was unlikely to impact a movie that's already in the can. And, as expected, Unexpected Journey isn't getting any changes. It's the next two movies that will be shaking things up.

  19. Peter Jackson Discusses Guillermo del Toro’s Version Of The Hobbit And What He Kept

    My Precious!

    Remember that time, way back when, when Guillermo del Toro was going to direct The Hobbit? My first reaction was, "Blasphemy! No one but Peter Jackson must do this film(s)!" But then I got to thinking, "What would a del Toro Hobbit look like?" For one thing, I knew it would scare the crap out of me, much like the original novel and Rankin/Bass animated film, and well, part of me wanted just that. Like myself and many others, io9.com was curious about del Toro's version so they went ahead and asked Jackson what, if anything, of del Toro is left behind in his new trilogy.

  20. Will You Have To Pay 3D Prices (Or More) At The Theater For The 48 FPS Hobbit Showings?

    Not all that glitters is gold

    I'm gonna go ahead and guess most of us would pay anything to see Peter Jackson's Hobbit films but when it comes to theater trips these days, not all of us have Smaug's gold collection. When you decide to see a 3D film, things get get even worse. So what about this new technology that Jackson is using for his trilogy? Will you be paying more at the door?
