Peter Jackson guest edits Empire Magazine plus a new behind-the-scenes still!

hobbit-subscribers-cover Peter Jackson is the editor for the new, upcoming issue of Empire which is being released next week.

“Empire likes movies, and for that reason I have always liked Empire. As Editor-In-Chief for this issue, it’s certainly been an interesting experience — signing off pages and approving photo shoots for Empire, at the same time as I’m signing off visual effects shots and approving sound mixes for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies.

Coming to the end of such an unexpected, unforgettable journey fills me with a mixture of pride, relief, sadness, fun and satisfaction. Middle-earth is such a fascinating, rich world to explore and one that never leaves you, even if you leave it.”

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…)

More on the running time for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF FIVE ARMIES Over the last few days, we’ve noticed theatres around the world are starting to put up running time estimates for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies spoiler rumours are false

HBT3-fs-340682.DNG There are a number of wild rumours that have begun swirling about the Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

These all seem to emanate from an anonymous poster on the internet messageboard 4Chan who claims to have seen an almost final cut of the film. Considering that around 150 folks saw a rough cut with Peter Jackson in New Zealand just a week and a bit ago, some have assumed that it must be a fan contest winner. (more…)

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…)

New still image of Bain son of Bard

Our friends at El Anillo Unico have posted up a new still from The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies. The image shows Bain, son of Bard, pensively walking the shore of the Long Lake in the aftermath of Smaug’s attack on Lake-town as the refugees attempt to recover.

Interestingly, none of his family appear to be nearby. (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…)
