Adam Brown appearing on stage in ‘Saxon Court’, London

Adam_BrownOur favourite scribe dwarf Ori, aka actor Adam Brown, is appearing on stage in London! Brown will be in Made by Brick’s production of Saxon Court, which runs at the Southwark Playhouse from November 19th to December 13th.

The theatre’s website describes the play as ‘a razor sharp satire to darken your Christmas’ – and warns that ‘this production contains graphic language and scenes of violence (as any good Christmas party should)!’ It sounds like the perfect comedic antidote to festive glitter – watch a trailer here:

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…)

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…)
