Summary Darker tone ... Martin Freeman in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. THE Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies -- the third instalment in director Peter Jackson's trilogy -- has launched a full-scale assault on the internet. To the delight of fans, the first trailer for the third and final film in the series has been revealed.
Summary Anyone who's seen "The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" knows: Peter Jackson enjoys yanking on our heartstrings. And according to Orlando Bloom , you should expect more of the same from the upcoming "Hobbit" finale "Battle of the Five Armies." "I think there'll be a lot more emotion in this one because you know, there's characters that you know and love who you know they're gonna die!"
Summary Peter Jackson says the Extended Edition of ' The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug ' could contain 25 minutes of additional footage in the form of deleted scenes. The film-maker told Deadline : "The first one ['An Unexpected Journey'], there wasn't that much we left on the cutting room floor and it wasn't earth shattering. But this is worthwhile stuff that you haven't seen before." Having stood at 161 minutes, the original theatrical release for 'Desolation of Smaug' was the shortest by several minutes of the entire saga, dating back to 2001's 'Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring'.
Summary There are two things to know before starting to get into this article. And since it only made sense that frequent Legendary Pictures collaborator Guillermo del Toro would be involved, Collider decided to ask Jackson what he thought about Del Toro possibly taking the reins of the project. "I would look forward to it. If Guillermo didKing Kong, that would be great. That would be fantastic. Ill be there on the first day, and will help him with anything he needs."
Summary Following the surprising but also confusing Skull Island announcement by Legendary Pictures at Comic-Con last week, news surfaced that Attack the Block director Joe Cornish has an offer to be at the helm of the next monster film from Universal Pictures, telling a new origin of King Kong. While there's no indication of whether Cornish will take the gig (he already turned down Star Trek 3), director Peter Jackson, who brought the giant gorilla to life in his 2005 remake of the 1930s classic, thinks that Guillermo del Toro should be the one bringing Kong back to the big screen.
Summary Sir Peter Jackson says he is looking forward to a proposed King Kong prequel. Jackson told Collider this week he did not know about the film being made. "If Guillermo did King Kong, that would be great. That would be fantastic. I'll be there on the first day, and will help him with anything he needs. "I've always wondered, if in my lifetime, whether we're going to see The Lord of the Rings film remade, or The Hobbit remade.
Summary Director Peter Jackson is a longtime fan of Doctor Who, and last year told EW he would dearly love to direct an episode of the long-running British science-fiction show, which returns to BBC America on Aug. 23 . So what's the holdup? Well, according to Doctor Who showrunner and head writer Steven Moffat, the Hobbit overlord has been too busy overlording The Hobbit to think about sitting in the director's chair for Who.
Summary J.R.R.'s 1937 novel The Hobbit is only about 300 pages long, but already Peter Jackson's adaptation has taken two films and five and a half hours - or five films and 15 hours if you count the "post-quel" Lord of the Rings trilogy. It all ends this December with the release of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, which features a busy but dour trailer, backed by Billy Boyd singing the mournful Pippin's Song (Edge of Night) from The Return of the King.
