'The Hobbit: There And Back Again' Moved Back To December 2014

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]
