LEGO Dimensions Discontinued

It goes without saying that /Film is not a video game site. But whenever there’s news regarding video games with ties to our favorite movies and TV shows, we think it’s worth reporting. That’s why we’re here with a disappointing update from The LEGO Group regarding their building block multiverse in the video game LEGO Dimensions.

After creating a video game that combined the worlds of Ghostbusters, Gremlins, Doctor Who, Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Jurassic World, E.T. The Extra Terrestrial, The Simpsons, Back to the Future, Knight Rider and many more, The LEGO Group, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and TT Games have decided not to create anymore new expansion packs for the video game. Find out more below. Read More »

Lord of the Rings Reunion Photo

This past December marked the 15th anniversary of Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, the first chapter in one of the greatest film trilogies of all time. Since that’s not exactly a celebratory, milestone anniversary, there wasn’t much pomp and circumstance. But a little over a month later, a mini-reunion of some of the members of the fellowship has taken place.

In what appears to be an impromptu reunion, Aragon (Viggo Mortensen), Frodo (Elijah Wood), Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Merry (Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin (Billy Boyd) all got together for a meal, and they took some time to snap a few pictures of the occasion as well. Check out the Lord of the Rings reunion photo after the jump. Read More »
