frodo-cirith-ungol This Saturday at 6pm ET, Hall of Fire finally cracks open Book 6 of The Lord of the Rings as we examine the events of The Tower of Cirith Ungol.

Sam roused himself painfully from the ground. For a moment he wondered where he was, and then all the misery and despair returned to him. [...] He wondered what the time was. Somewhere between one day and the next, he supposed; but even of the days he had quite lost the count. He was in a land of darkness where the days of the world seemed forgotten, and where all who entered were forgotten too.

The Return of the King: Book VI, Chapter I: The Tower of Cirith Ungol

Sam awakes by the under-gate to the orc stronghold in Cirith Ungol. (more…)

The teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is here!

bilbo looks Moments ago, the teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies went live on the internet.

One minute and forty-eight seconds of epic, set to Billy Boyd heartbreaking tune from The Return of the King, The Edge of Night. At this point we think it’s worth reminding you of what one of our spies said to us just a couple of weeks back: “it’s going to make us [all] cry!”

The best line? There’s only four, but for mine it’s:

““Will you follow me, one last time?”

Just wow!

But enough gabble — check it out for yourself! We’ll be back with more our analysis!

The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies in Hall H: the details and the spoilers!

Hobbit 3 poster Warner Bros. behind-the-scenes efforts mark this as more than merely another panel — despite the fact it’s sharing a slot with Mad Max Fury: Road, Jupiter Ascending and Batman vs Superman.

The enormous, multi-scened wraparound panaorama that muralises the walls of Hall H declares the pre-eminence of The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies in the pecking order.

It’s the panel of the day. (more…)

Amazing scroll panorama of The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies revealed in Hall H!

We had heard that Hall H had been turned into a massive surround screen for The Hobbit, but now we understand precisely what people mean!

Even better, Warner Bros. used the panoramic montages that they created for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

Why? Because they also revealed the panoramic scroll for The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies and we can get a bit of a taste for six key scenes of the final film!

Just a warning, because these are screencaps from phone vid (see the Screenscrush video at the bottom), the sharpness is not the best. We’re certain that Warner Bros. will debut the real thing in a few days so if you’re after quality you might want to skip this for now. (more…)
