This week’s Saturday Night Live host was Martin Freeman, star of The Hobbit trilogy, AMC’s Fargo television series and BBC’s Sherlock. One of the best sketches on Saturday night involved Freeman returning to The Office, the 2001 BBC television comedy series which spawned the NBC hit. But Freeman did not reprise his role as Tim Canterbury, instead playing his The Hobbit starring role as Bilbo Baggins in a sketch which imagines what The Office would have been like featuring the characters of J. R. R. Tolkien’s Middle Earth saga. Watch the SNL Office Hobbit mash-up sketch embedded after the jump.

Disney has released the first look at concept art for Jon Favreau‘s new “live-action” version of The Jungle Book. I use quotation marks around live action because the film will seamlessly blend live-action with photorealistic CGI animals and environments, “using up-to-the-minute technology and storytelling techniques to immerse audiences in an enchanting and lush world.” So basically imagine how James Cameron shot Avatar with some live-action elements but mostly a computer created world populated with photo realistic animals of Life of Pi or Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.

Peter Jackson has spent about fifteen years all told in Middle-Earth, and his dual set of massive Tolkien adaptations is coming to an end in just a couple weeks with the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Well, almost an end, as there will still be the inevitable extended edition blu-ray release. The end of the series is protracted enough at this point that what was once billed as the final Hobbit trailer really was not, in fact, the last one. This UK trailer is (maybe) truly the final Hobbit trailer, and (much like the recent fan-made effort) it offers a sweeping overview of the whole Hobbit series so far. Read More »

Adapting a popular property is always a dicey prospect, and Antoine de Saint-Exupéry‘s The Little Prince is one of the most beloved children’s classics of all time. Director Mark Osborne has a lot to live up to with his new film adaptation, and whatever he’s come up with is bound to come under intense scrutiny from fans of all ages.
So it’s with a great sigh of relief and (not gonna lie) a few nostalgic tears stinging our eyes that we can tell you the first The Little Prince trailer looks freaking fantastic — sweet, inventive, and almost as lyrical as the book itself. But don’t take our word for it. Hit the jump to watch The Little Prince trailer. Read More »
Since the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, I’ve been saying that once Peter Jackson‘s Lord of the Rings prequel trilogy is released some fan will edit together an awesome epic three hour movie using all the footage. Well with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies gearing up for release, we are already beginning to see what this might look like.
Los Angeles-based editor Joel Walden has edited together a trailer for what he calls The Hobbit: The Complete Journey, which yes combines footage from all three films into one epic film. Watch the trailer embedded after the jump.

Peter Jackson has never quite been sure how many movies based on the world of J.R.R. Tolkien he was going to make. In his initial pitch, he combined the three Lord of the Rings novels into two movies. He then ended up making three. And even though those movies were long, he released extended editions of each. He then decided he didn’t want to tackle The Hobbit, and passed the job to Guillermo del Toro. Del Toro dropped though and Jackson jumped back into the directors chair to make two movies based on the one book. As he was shooting though, he realized he had enough for three movies, and now we have both a Lord of the Rings Trilogy and a Hobbit Trilogy.
Both of those trilogies used information from Appendices Tolkien wrote later to add meat to the bone and that begs the question, is he really done? Well, at the press junket for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies that point was discussed. One actor seems to think more Lord of the Rings movies are possible but logistically, it’s probably not. Read the quotes below. Read More »
