Briefly: For a moment, after Peter Jackson revealed The Hobbit would be three films, the series’ third installment was scheduled to be the first of his Middle-Earth films released in summer. That moment has passed. Warner Bros. has moved the conclusion to The Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: There And Back Again, to winter. The new date is December 17, 2014 specifically. It’ll come two years after The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and one after The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, which is out this December 13. [Deadline]

Not surprisingly, today’s tidbits begin with Star Trek Into Darkness. After the jump:

  • Simon Pegg is laughing at your Star Trek fan theories
  • You can count out Danny Boyle for Bond 24
  • Clerks III already has a 70-page outline
  • Andy Serkis talks The Hobbit and Apes
  • A Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy sequel is coming 
  • Barbara Hershey will return for Insidious 2
  • Wolverine, X-MenApes, and Percy Jackson go 3D

Yesterday we saw an image billed as the first from The Hobbit: There and Back Again, which is the third film in Peter Jackson‘s trilogy adapting J.R.R. Tolkien‘s short novel The Hobbit. I wondered if that might have been a mistake in billing, and that the still might actually have been from the second film, The Desolation of Smaug. After all, we hadn’t seen anything from the second movie yet, and so to see a still from the third seemed odd.

But that was indeed from the third movie. And now we’ve got the first pic from The Desolation of Smaug, and the guess is that it comes from the very end of the film, just as Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) is coming face to face with the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch) for the first time. See that, and a new pic from the first Hobbit film, below. Read More »

Things are going into overdrive for Peter Jackson‘s first film adapting The Hobbit, but before the film opens on December 14 we’ve got a great behind the scenes look at the production of the film. This 13-minute featurette features a lot of film footage you probably haven’t seen yet, and has some good interviews, to boot.

Plus, we’ve got the first official still from the second Hobbit movie (or is it from the third?) after the break.
