While we can’t yet show you some things from that panel, such as the great blooper reel that opened the event, we can show you the Hobbit Battle of Five Armies teaser trailer now. After watching this, check out our coverage of the panel, which features a video presentation of the whole event. (Well, the whole event minus any film clips.) Read More »

Peter Jackson took the stage at Hall H at Comic-Con for potentially the last time as a maker of Middle-Earth to present the first footage from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Co-stars Andy Serkis, Lee Pace, Evangeline Lilly, Benedict Cumberbatch, Orlando Bloom, Cate Blanchet, Elijah Wood and others joined the writer/director to promote the third and final Hobbit film, scheduled for release December 17.
Stephen Colbert hosted the panel, in full kit from his cameo in The Desolation of Smaug, and debuted the first teaser trailer. He also talked about the Middle-Earth saga as a whole. Read about the Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies Comic-Con panel and trailer description below.

Peter Jackson’s third and final Hobbit film has officially been renamed. It was first called The Hobbit: There and Back Again and now it’s officially been changed to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. It still opens December 17.
Below, read Peter Jackson’s reasoning behind the change. Read More »
At one point Peter Jackson‘s adaptation of The Hobbit was going to be two films, with one subtitled An Unexpected Journey and the second called There and Back Again. Now, with the series standing as three films, the final chapter is still called There and Back Again… but perhaps not for long. Rumors say that the third film will be given a new title, The Hobbit: Into the Fire. Read More »
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.

Rest assured that when The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits Blu-ray on April 8, there will be hours of behind the scenes footage to illustrate in exhaustive detail the process of creating the film. But of all the possible views on the process of building The Desolation of Smaug, the one we’re perhaps most keen to learn about is the process of bringing its titular dragon to life.
A new featurette shows a bit of that process, including just a bit of footage of Benedict Cumberbatch in a mo-cap suit doing some all-in physical performance for Smaug. Oh, and in case you need some size reference for Smaug, one of his creators explains that he’s twice the size of a jumbo jet. Check out the video after the break. Read More »
