You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t like one of the following four movies: The Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, Independence Day or Batman. Odds are everyone likes at least one of those films (or film series), probably very passionately in fact. And if that’s the case, you’ll definitely want to hit the jump on this story. After the jump we’ve got information on the following:
- Empire Magazine has an exclusive video of Sean Astin, Elijah Wood, Domenic Monaghan and Billy Boyd reuniting on the 10th anniversary of the release of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring.
- Access Hollywood is reporting the sequel to J.J. Abrams‘ 2009 Star Trek will not be simply called Star Trek 2.
- Roland Emmerich is at it again, saying he’s talked to Will Smith about coming back for Independence Day 2.
- Christopher Nolan‘s The Dark Knight Rises won’t film at Occupy Wall Street as production hits the Big Apple.

The first trailer for Happy Feet Two was the epitome of the word “teaser.” It was little more than a bunch of penguins dancing in unison to Justin Timberlake’s Sexy Back. With the film’s release date now just over a month out, Warner Bros. has finally released a full, theatrical trailer that not only gives us an idea of the story also samples the almost mind-blowingly impressive voice cast this time around (Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Brad Pitt, Matt Damon, Hank Azaria, Sofia Vergara, Pink, Hugo Weaving). Plus, it proves that these Happy Feet movies are about much more than dancing. Don’t worry, though. There’s still plenty of dancing. Check it out after the jump. Read More »
Where do you stand on World of Warcraft? If you’re a fan of it, you’re in Dominic Monaghan‘s corner. If you hate it, you’re in Elijah Wood‘s corner. And if you have no idea what I’m talking about you probably aren’t the only one.
One of the signature events at Fantastic Fest every year is the Fantastic Debates. This is where various actors, writers, and general well-known movie people verbally debate over an issue, then really settle the matter with their fists in a legitimate boxing match. This year’s Fantastic Debates was presented by the documentary Knuckle and the main event featured Fantastic Fest co-founder Tim League fighting the star of the film, James Quinn McDonagh. The undercard featured the two Lord of the Rings co-stars debating on the merits of World of Warcraft before slugging it out in front of a packed house.

Stock in Tron — elevated in value over the years thanks to the forgiving nature of nostalgia — took a dive after the release of Tron: Legacy. But Disney isn’t giving up on the property, and is moving full speed ahead with an animated series that explores the Grid, aka the digital world at the core of the two films. A good idea, as animation could turn out to be the ideal medium in which to explore the hidden corners of the Grid.

A new trailer has been released for Happy Feet Two, the sequel to 2006′s dancing-CGI-penguin hit. Featuring the vocal talents of Elijah Wood, Robin Williams, Hank Azaria, and many others, Happy Feet Two tells the theoretically adorable tale of a young penguin who just wants to fly. The film is directed by George Miller, whose previous work includes the Mad Max movies, Lorenzo’s Oil, and the two Babe films. Watch the trailer after the jump. Read More »
At this point what more is there to say about yet another dwarf reveal from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey? (Other than, perhaps, “uh, where’s Thorin?”) Here is the latest image dispatch from Peter Jackson‘s version of Middle-Earth, featuring Ken Stott as Balin (on the left) and Graham McTavish as Dwalin.
These two guys are peers, more or less, for Thorin, the dwarf who assembles the company that travels from the Shire to the Misty Mountain. We’ll likely see Thorin next week, and hopefully a couple of the new human character, too. In the meantime, see the full new image below. Read More »
We reported on the last round of casting for Celeste and Jesse Forever just the other day, when Emma Roberts, Ari Graynor and Chris Messina joined the cast of the film that follows Rashida Jones (who co-wrote) and Andy Samberg as a couple who tries to maintain their friendship while still living in the same house during their divorce. Now Elijah Wood has signed on as well; THR says he’ll be “Celeste’s business partner, a metrosexual who tries to be her ‘saucy gay friend.’” I’m not sure if that means the character is gay, or if he’s a straight guy who tries to play that role with Celeste (Rashida Jones). Either way, I’ll be happy to see Elijah Wood do outright comedy, since we don’t often see him in that mode on the big screen.
After the break, Colin Hanks continues his hot streak and Paul Schneider breaks his lizard. Read More »

In 2006 Warner Bros. released Happy Feet, the animated singing/dancing penguin movie that was then the latest step in George Miller‘s strange career. (Mad Max –> Babe –> Happy Feet.) Now he’s back with a sequel, Happy Feet Two, and the first teaser is out. The animation looks good, but if you aren’t looking for a penguin-performed pop music mixtape, then best give this one a pass. Read More »
