The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey
When I walked out of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first thing I said to someone was “After they release the other two movies, some fan will edit a cut of the three films into a great three hour movie.” Its funny how things change — with the Lord of the Rings films we were clamoring for extended editions, but now we think less is more (it may have something to do with the fact this is one and a half books stretched to three movies vs. three books adapted into three films).

We still haven’t gotten the third chapter of Peter Jackson‘s Hobbit adaptation, but some fan has edited the first two movies into a trailer for a mash-up movie titled The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey. Lets hope that once The Hobbit: There and Back Again is released, a good editor will combine the three adaptations into one three-hour-long movie cut. For now, you can watch the epic mash-up The Hobbit: The Desolation of an Unexpected Journey embedded after the jump.

Construct is a short film created by Kevin Margo, CG Supervisor and director of Blur Studio VFX. You at have seen some of his work in the Batman Arkham and Halo trailers, or you may have seen his previous award-winning short film Grounded.

VOTD: How Much Does Captain America Cost U.S. Taxpayers?

Robert Redford in Captain America: The Winter Soldiuer

Many a comic book movie has contemplated the emotional cost of being a superhero. You’re constantly in peril. You regularly have to put your civilian life on hold while you go battle baddies. All your loved ones are at risk of being captured by the enemy at any moment. And it can really sting when the public you’ve worked so hard to save doesn’t seem all that grateful for your help.

But then there’s also the dollar cost of being a superhero. Sure, Steve Rogers may have started out as an middle-class kid from Brooklyn. But super-soldier serums and cutting-edge equipment don’t come cheap, and — since S.H.I.E.L.D. is a government agency — we taxpayers are the ones footing the bill. So how much does having a Captain America cost the U.S., really? After the jump, a video breaks down the total price tag.
