UPDATE: Theatrical Trailer for THE HOBBIT 3 Coming Nov. 6?

Tim here, and Happy Halloween everyone. It's the last day of October and we still haven't gotten a theatrical trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies like we thought. TORN is reporting that November 6th may be the date. Warner Bros. will likely pair it with another big movie of theirs: Interstellar. This is a slight margin of error for PJ's earlier comments this year. We can't hold it against him as we all know delays are bound to happen. Plus today is a special day for him.

We'll keep an eye out and share it with you as soon as it hits. For the meantime enjoy dressing up as your favorite characters from your favorite 3D movies this year... Happy Halloween. And... Happy Birthday Peter Jackson!

The release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies arrives in theaters December 17th, 2014 in IMAX 3D, RealD 3D, HFR 3D.

THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT Will Be In 3D - 8 Character Posters Revealed!


The next DIVERGENT installment entitled THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT, has been confirmed to be in 3D and 8 interactive 3D posters have been released in the past day to publicize the movie. The posters are for the main characters namely: Caleb (Ansel Elgort), Tori (Maggie Q), Uriah (Keiynan Lonsdale), Max (Mekhi Phifer), Peter (Miles Teller), Christina (Zoë Kravitz), Four (Theo James) and Tris (Shailene Woodley).

I enjoyed the first movie - better than THE HUNGER GAMES in many ways. Now that the second movie in the franchise will be 3D, it'll be all that more appealing. This genre begs for 3D and helps suspend disbelief - can't wait to see their end result.

Here's the movie's storyline:
THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT raises the stakes for Tris as she searches for allies and answers in the ruins of a futuristic Chicago. Tris (Woodley) and Four (James) are now fugitives on the run, hunted by Jeanine (Winslet), the leader of the power-hungry Erudite elite. Racing against time, they must find out what Tris’s family sacrificed their lives to protect, and why the Erudite leaders will do anything to stop them. Haunted by her past choices but desperate to protect the ones she loves, Tris, with Four at her side, faces one impossible challenge after another as they unlock the truth about the past and ultimately the future of their world.

THE DIVERGENT SERIES: INSURGENT launches in theaters March 20, 2015.

Confirmed Marvel Release Dates And Titles Through 2019 - Title Posters!

Marvel held a fan and press day today in Hollywood and revealed their movie lineup through to 2019. On hand at the event was the ever present producer Kevin Feige, Chadwick Boseman (BLACK PANTHER), Chris Evans (CAPTAIN AMERICA) and Robert Downey Jr. (IRON MAN).

That's huge news on the casting of BLACK PANTHER! Chadwick Boseman is probably best known for playing Jackie Robinson in 42.

It's significant to note that Benedict Cumberbatch was not on hand and Marvel has not yet signed him on as DOCTOR STRANGE. "If it was confirmed, we would have announced it today."

Further - pay heed that THE AVENGERS 3 will be broken down into two parts - INFINITY WAR: PART 1 and PART 2 which we kinda knew already.


Here are today's announced Marvel release dates and titles:

Captain America 3: Civil WarMay 6, 2016

Jean-Pierre Jeunet To Receive Harold Lloyd Award For 3D


Jean-Pierre Jeunet (A Very Long Engagement, Amélie, Alien: Resurrection) has been selected as the recipient of the International 3D And Advanced Imaging Society's Harold Lloyd Award for "body of work and specific achievements in 3D filmmaking have advanced the motion picture art form."

Tim and I have seen snippets of his latest work THE YOUNG AND PRODIGIOUS T.S. SPIVET and it is simply gorgeous. The 3D is perfect (literally - I couldn't see anything at all wrong with it) and it truly resonates with the audience as they use proper technique after proper technique to deliver the purest form of native 3D I have ever seen.

The 3D team was led by stereographer Demetri Portelli (HUGO, 47 RONIN, RESIDENT EVIL: RETRIBUTION) along with 3D Production Systems Supervisor Ben Gervais and 3D Systems Technician Brian Cassar. They worked closely with Jeunet to achieve their stunning visuals.

Helena Bonham Carter, Judy Davis and Kyle Catlett topline the cast.

The Weinstein Co. have acquired the distribution rights to the movie in North America and I hope to soon see this in theaters!

Past recipients of the Harold Lloyd Award include James Cameron, Ang Lee, Martin Scorsese and Jeffrey Katzenberg. Jeunet definitely belongs in this elite group! The award will be presented on January 28, at Warner Bros. Studios.


I'll pass on more distribution information when I get it. Check out the T.S. SPIVET's poster and trailer!

Must Watch: Hobbitized Air New Zealand Safety Video !


You gotta love the relationship Air New Zealand has with Peter Jackson as they have collaborated before on commercials. AirNZ wraps their planes in Hobbit characters too.

And of course they need to have a Middle-earth safety video as well! So check it out below and, hey, why not entertain a trip to New Zealand? They'll get you there, and back again.

Here's the movie's storyline:
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES, the third in a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien.

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES brings to an epic conclusion the adventures of Bilbo Baggins, Thorin Oakenshield and the Company of Dwarves. Having reclaimed their homeland from the Dragon Smaug, the Company has unwittingly unleashed a deadly force into the world. Enraged, Smaug rains his fiery wrath down upon the defenseless men, women and children of Lake-town.

Obsessed above all else with his reclaimed treasure, Thorin sacrifices friendship and honor to hoard it as Bilbo’s frantic attempts to make him see reason drive the Hobbit towards a desperate and dangerous choice. But there are even greater dangers ahead. Unseen by any but the Wizard Gandalf, the great enemy Sauron has sent forth legions of Orcs in a stealth attack upon the Lonely Mountain.

As darkness converges on their escalating conflict, the races of Dwarves, Elves and Men must decide – unite or be destroyed. Bilbo finds himself fighting for his life and the lives of his friends in the epic Battle of the Five Armies, as the future of Middle-earth hangs in the balance.

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES marches into theaters December 17 in HFR 3D, IMAX 3D, RealD 3D and flat.

Five More HOBBIT Character Posters!


Tim here, and here are yet another five more character posters for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Again spread across the last few posts on The Hobbit's Official Facebook Page. The images above are the new posters, and each keeps the close-up on the face of the character theme; First up Bard (Lee Evans), then Tauriel (Evangeline Lilly), followed by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), then Thranduil (Lee Pace), and lastly Bilbo (Martin Freeman). Yes, another Bilbo poster, but this one stays in the theme of the others.

Next up we'll get posters of Merry, Pippin, and Samwise... kidding. Obviously, we've yet to get all the dwarves: Fili, Kili, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Ori, Nori, Dori, Oin, Gloin, Dwalin, and Balin. My, oh my, I hope I didn't leave anyone out. However, Bilbo is the last of the character posters according to the Facebook Page. And then: the theatrical trailer!

I can't say when the theatrical trailer will hit. However, it is supposed to be this month. So keep cool and we'll let you know a soon as it hits.

The release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies arrives in theaters December 17th, 2014 in IMAX 3D, RealD 3D, HFR 3D shot in native 3D with 3ality Technica rigs.

More Character Posters for THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF THE FIVE ARMIES !



Tim here, and here are three more character posters for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. Spread across a few posts the last few days from The Hobbit's Official Facebook Page. The images above are the new posters. Each of them are close-ups on the faces of each character; First up we have Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellan) looking off to the side with a grim expression, followed by Galadrail (Cate Blanchett) staring directly into the eyes of viewer, and finally Legalos (Orlando Bloom) poised with his bow ready to let an arrow loose.

If you go to the Official Facebook Page and comment on the latest posting of the picture you can vote who's character poster you'd like to see next. This means we're going to be getting more character posters, and it could possibly be a character poster a day until we get the theatrical trailer. The cast is that large, so it is feasible.

The release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies arrives in theaters December 17th, 2014 in IMAX 3D, RealD 3D, HFR 3D..
