The_Hobbit_Desolation-smaug_1

While initial trailers for The Hobbit have some footage that will likely be in the second chapter, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug (as the trailers were crafted before the adaptation was split into three parts) the first “official” look at the second movie came via a live web event for those who bought The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey on Blu-ray or DVD.

Now Peter Jackson has posted a condensed version of that live event for everyone to see, and the six-minute clip has the writer/director answering questions about the film, as well as some behind-the-scenes views of scenes from The Desolation of Smaug. You’ll see Luke Evans as Bard the Bowman, and Evangeline Lilly as the elf Tauriel, among other things

And there are even appearances from Stephen Colbert, who asks a pretty hyper-detailed question about Jackson’s Middle-Earth, and Lord of the Rings actor Billy Boyd. Read More »

Peter Jackson‘s abiding affection for J.R.R. Tolkien‘s works is well established at this point, and as such it’s probably safe to expect his three-part adaptation of The Hobbit to remain relatively faithful to the source material. But no story goes from page to screen without getting a few tweaks along the way. One of Jackson’s is the addition of a Tauriel, a Woodland Elf created specifically for the movie and portrayed by Lost actress Evangeline Lilly.

Since the character has no counterpart in the novel, up until now it’s been anyone’s guess what she’d look like in the movie. Thanks to the upcoming onslaught of product tie-ins, however, we now have our first peek at the new character. Check it out after the jump.

Paramount’s Jack Ryan reboot has had its share of false starts, but the fact that it’s finally begun casting in earnest can only be a positive sign. Chris Pine‘s been attached to play the beloved Tom Clancy creation for years, but he’s been all alone in the spotlight.

That changed a few weeks ago when director Kenneth Branagh (who got the helming gig back in March) cast himself as the villain, and now he’s narrowing down the possibilities for the female lead role as well. On that short list are Keira Knightley, Felicity Jones, and Evangeline Lilly. More after the jump.

Ten years ago this week The Fellowship of the Ring was released. Peter Jackson‘s first Tolkien adaption silenced a great many naysayers who said J.R.R. Tolkien‘s novels could never be properly translated to film. It also fostered a mainstream interest in fantasy movies that continues a decade later.

The development of a film based on Tolkien’s original Middle-Earth novel, The Hobbit, was the subject of speculation as soon as Jackson started work on The Lord of the Rings. Actually making the movie was a terrifically complicated process that involved rights deals, the financial solvency of MGM, a long period of development under original director Guillermo del Toro, and the eventual return of Peter Jackson to the director’s chair.

Now the first teaser trailer — a long teaser, at that — has been released for the first of two films based on the novel. Get the first look at footage from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, after the break. Read More »
