Reposting because we’ve been adding lots of new Line Parties and want you all to be able to find them. Please submit a form of your own if you wish to be included.

The folks at IMAX really want you to see “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies,” in that format. Most fans are aware that there are a number of choices of how and where and in what format to see the film and some will try it several ways. We were given this exclusive featurette to share that features Peter Jackson, Evangeline Lilly, Luke Evans and Lee Pace singing the praises of the IMAX format with with scenes from the epic battle movie.
I am not aware of any of our staff viewing the film in IMAX format but we do know from first-hand experience that there are a whole lot of large-screen battle mayhem moments going on that range from deadly serious to funny. Certainly the IMAX experience would be something I would look forward to. Anyway, below is the video, which promotes the format via its stars and director and shows a lot of action clips and the hero closeups that are both Peter Jackson trademarks.Posted in Evangeline Lilly, Film Screenings, Hobbit Movie, Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, The Hobbit, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Nominations for the 21st annual Screen Actors Guild Awards were announced this morning. “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies” was recognized in the stunt ensemble category with a fairly elective mix of fellow nominees:
Outstanding Action Performance by a Stunt Ensemble in a Motion Picture
“FURY” (Columbia Pictures)
“GET ON UP” (Universal Pictures)
“THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES” (Warner Bros. Pictures)
“UNBROKEN” (Universal Pictures)
“X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST” (20th Century Fox)
The televised ceremony airs on January 25, 2015. It’s worth noting that “The Desolation of Smaug” and “An Unexpected Journey” were not nominated so this marks the only SAG nomination for any “Hobbit” film. Congratulations to “The Battle of the Five Armies” stunt coordinators and performers for this worthy nomination!Posted in Events, Headlines, Other Events, The Hobbit, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Our friend and amazing artist Jerry Vanderstelt who as you all know has created so many superb pieces of Middle-earth will be starting a new line of prints capturing this world.
Fans will soon be able to start purchasing prints of the many landscapes we’ve seen in Peter Jackson’s films. The first print pending licensor approval will be capturing the beautiful place we all know as Rivendell. This is such a beautiful piece and looking at this picture you really do feel like you’re about to get an up close look at Rivendell. As soon as this goes up for sale in Jerry’s store we will let you know.Posted in Artwork, Collectibles, Hobbit Movie, Lord of the Rings, LotR Movies, Merchandise, Movie Fellowship of the Ring, Shop, The Hobbit, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
The third time’s the charm as our very own Senior Staff writer Clifford ‘Quickbeam’ Broadway is set to deliver an entertaining scholarly presentation on Dec. 10th on the various adaptations of THE HOBBIT that have been crafted over 76 years. In tandem with the excitement of the West Coast Premiere of “The Battle of the Five Armies” local residents of Southern California are welcome to attend this FREE event at the Valencia Library in Santa Clarita, just a little ways north of Hollywood.Posted in Contests, Events, Fans, Headlines, Hobbit Book, Hobbit Movie, Lectures & Education, Miscellaneous, Out on a Limb, The Hobbit, TORn TUESDAYS Live!
Here is some media coverage of the day, starting with The New Zealand Herald who said:
“Peter Jackson has received his star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame – and he’s scored some prime real estate.
Stars from Jackson’s Lord of the Rings and Hobbit trilogies watched on as Jackson received his star on Hollywood Boulevard, just days before the final film in his Hobbit trilogy premieres in New Zealand.”

Last week TORn staffer greendragon spoke to Richard Armitage on The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies red carpet in London. After apologizing that he had not been able to join fans at TORn’s pub moot the night before, Armitage went on to say how he’d like to be at TORn’s The One Last Party in February. He has this message for fans considering buying tickets:
Tickets are available NOW from our Indiegogo campaign! This will be the only way to purchase tickets for this Party of Special Magnificence; Richard Armitage hopes we raise our goal so he can join us at the party! Will you be there? February 21st 2015 – full details here.
A reminder – none of the money raised will go into TORn’s pockets! IF we reach our goal, every penny we receive will be spent on throwing an extraordinary evening for fans and cast to celebrate together. If we don’t reach our goal, no-one will be charged – so there is no risk in buying your ticket now. Questions?

WELLINGTON, NEW ZEALAND — TheOneRing.net visited the set for a brief time during the final segment of filming, nearly entirely focused on the third film, “The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.” On the day of this interview Peter Jackson was putting his characters through a highly emotional scene toward the end of the film when one or more characters was in grave peril, perhaps the gravest of peril. In fact, the scene puts the grave in grave peril.
But the production wasn’t filming the action sequence. The camera was on the other half of the scene so instead the camera was focused on Martin Freeman playing Bilbo Baggins watching the grave peril unfold. Freeman’s face and voice spoke volumes about what Bilbo was experiencing. As of press time, I haven’t seen the film so perhaps those who have will know what we watched or perhaps it didn’t make the final cut. Either way, it was an acting lesson from a genuine professional.
The year previous I spent extensive time on set and for a myriad of reasons Freeman was the sole interview of the main cast that I failed to get so I was pleased to finally be able to sit down on set, in a tent on a sound stage and interview the guy who played the title character. There were perhaps five other reporters as well. If any of the following questions from the Q&A are bad, please blame them. A foot massage* for those who can spot the questions for TheOneRing.net (hint, it wasn’t the ones about the ring or feet.) A personal observation is that Freeman is often a thoughtful interview who doesn’t deliver canned answers but I find his words here to be particularly engaging. Sadly, the interview, while reasonable in length left us wishing for more.

Tonight in the heart of Wales a very special event happened that brought together the family scions of Tolkien while also raising money for ALS; which by way of the viral Ice Bucket Challenge became one of the notable internet phenomena of 2014. Motor Neurone Disease touches closely on the family, as Royd Tolkien’s brother Mike struggles with its effects.
