Hobbit’s road comes to an end

Hobbit cast poster Brisbane tabloid The Sunday Mail sent writer Neala Johsnon across the pond to New Zealand in June 2013 for a stint on the set of The Hobbit during pick-ups. This article finally popped up in the paper’s mag last weekend.

As The Sunday Mail — especially its longer, feature-style magazine articles — doesn’t really make its way online at all, here’s the article re-typed in full for TORn readers. Beware minor movie spoilers, there are a couple of new lines of movie dialogue below and more information about the situation in the ruins of Dale in the lead up to the final battle. (more…)

Music Video for Billy Boyd’s “The Last Goodbye” in High Definition

BillbyBoydTheLastGoodbyeEarlier today, the music video for “The Last Goodbye”, the end credits song for the last chapter in The Hobbit Trilogy, premiered exclusively on EW.com.

As much a farewell to Peter Jackson’s entire Middle-earth filmography as the Hobbit films themselves, the video features our beloved Mr. Boyd singing his wonderful tune to images of the entire saga.

Including footage ranging from the incredibly familiar to the previously unseen, the music video is a beautiful reminder of the journey we’ve all been on and a celebration of everything the cast and crews from both trilogies have accomplished. (more…)

Star Wars trailer attached to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Here’s a little something extra for all Star Wars fans to watch out for when you go to see The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Update: Just to clarify. This remains a rumour. It also seems that originating Twitter account has been deactivated so you may wish to employ some grains of salt. The other suggestion floating round is that The Hobbit will host the Batman vs Superman Dawn Of Justice teaser.

Fan-curated exhibition in North of England to coincide with The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Fans in Ripon North Yorkshire have a special treat coming up.  As well as seeing the final Hobbit film, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, they can see some wonderful artwork inspired by the writing of JRR Tolkien.  Artist John Cockshaw is presenting an Exhibition of Art Inspired by the Works of JRR Tolkien at the Art Cinema, Curzon Ripon.

With excitement for the final Middle-earth film reaching fever-pitch along with a bittersweet feeling of having to say farewell John decided, as a fan and artist, he had to act decisively. Opening on the 12th December with a preview is an exhibition of Tolkien artists he will be curating at the Curzon cinema venue in Ripon, North Yorkshire. Along with a selection of his own Middle-earth art, the show will feature the work of renowned Canadian Artist Ted Nasmith and the amazing graphite work of Polish Artist Katarzyna Chmiel-Gugulska. It will coincide with the screening of The Hobbit at this regional venue but also use the opportunity as a platform to showcase a thought-provoking diversity of interpreting JRR Tolkien’s writing. The exhibition also arose out of his longing to create a high-profile Tolkien-related event in his home area…because you can never really celebrate Tolkien enough right? The exhibition, after the preview evening, will run from Saturday 13th December until Saturday 31st January.

All the trailer footage from The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies in chronological order

vlcsnap-2014-11-07-05h49m41s22This is pretty cool. Have a look at this speculative re-arrangement from Sammpo Alternative Channel of all the trailer and teaser and TV spots footage for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies rearranged into what might — or might not — be chronological viewing order.

Accuracy may be arguable, but this could be quite close to a short summary of the film. If you’re not avoiding spoilers have a look, and leave your thoughts below in the comments! (more…)

HFR, IMAX, 3D, Atmos, D-Box. Making sense of all the theatrical formats for The Battle of the Five Armies

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF FIVE ARMIES Tickets for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies went on sale Friday, and it came with a bit of confusion. There are multiple screenings in multiple theaters with all sorts of strange terms attached to them: HFR, Atmos, IMAX, etc. to name a few – to say nothing of whether or not it’s in 3D.

With ticket prices the way they are, you may be a little hesitant to push the “purchase” button on your ticket order in case you mistakenly selected a show in a format you don’t want to see.

Or you may have not even gotten that far, and simply gone cross-eyed at all of the acronyms and strange terms on Fandango, MovieTickets, or whichever portal you prefer, silently crying, “WHAT DOES IT ALL MEAN?!” Your local theaters may not have all of these flavors, and thus your choice is much easier. But many of you may have hit a wall of indecision. (more…)
