I will be a happy trooper for the next year and half (next movies opening next december and summer after that).
Saying that though, I'm not sure why anybody would not go and see it based on reviews. If you liked the trailers and the other films then I'd go and see it anyway.
What?! How? Why? Are they crazy?...
I don't know how it happened but apparently it's true. It is such a great soundtrack, nobody understands why Jackson did that.
I didn´t notice any differences to the CD release, which obviously also contains well-known themes for returning characters, but the recordings were not the ones from LOTR I´m sure, they were the ones on the CD. The Hobbit theme was there quite often, but not the way I remember it from LOTR. I definitely like the new takes better.
Anyone who liked the music so far should go, the dwarf theme is impressive.
I want it to do well so MGM do not get into financial trouble again! Don't want another long pause for a Bond movie again! X_X
Same here samuel, both me and my girlfriend are looking forward to this movie!
Skyfall has helped that.
It's only been open for a day, but The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is already breaking records in North America!
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is set to be the biggest Christmas release of all-time reports Deadline. According to their sources, Peter Jackson's return to Middle-Earth looks set to earn $37 million for yesterday and around $96 million for the weekend with an 'A' CinemaScore. While Warner Bros. are still being a little more conservative with their estimates, this is still the biggest opening Friday in December and biggest December weekend for the domestic box office ever. The film has already taken the top spot overseas with $27.3 million from 42 locations. It has so far earned $1.6 million on IMAX screens. According to "MovieTickets", advance ticket sales have seen 18% wanting to see the film in standard 3D, 8% in High Frame Rate 3D and 7% in IMAX 3D.
Well they have pushed it back, after all that. The last film is now coming out on 17th December 2014.
“The Hobbit: There and Back Again,” the final film in Peter Jackson’s trilogy adaptation of the timeless classic The Hobbit, will now be released on December 17, 2014. The joint announcement was made today by Dan Fellman, President of Domestic Distribution and Veronika Kwan Vandenberg, President of International Distribution, Warner Bros. Pictures.
The film moves from its previous summer slot, and now follows the holiday release pattern of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” which went on to become a billion-dollar global blockbuster, as well as the three films in the blockbuster “The Lord of the Rings” Trilogy. The second film in “The Hobbit” Trilogy, “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” is next to be released, on December 13, 2013. All three films in the Trilogy are productions of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM).
Stated Fellman, “We’re excited to complete the Trilogy the same way we started it, as a holiday treat for moviegoers everywhere.”
Added Kwan Vandenberg, “Our holiday release of the first film set a successful precedent for this wonderful Trilogy, and we’re delighted to bring it to a conclusion in the same release window.”
From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson comes “The Hobbit: There and Back Again,” the final film in an epic Trilogy adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The three films tell a continuous story set in Middle-earth 60 years before “The Lord of the Rings,” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar ®-winning “The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King.”
Jackson directed “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” from a screenplay by Fran Walsh & Philippa Boyens & Peter Jackson. Jackson is also producing the film, together with Carolynne Cunningham, Zane Weiner and Fran Walsh. The executive producers are Alan Horn, Toby Emmerich, Ken Kamins and Carolyn Blackwood, with Boyens and Eileen Moran serving as co-producers.
All three films in “The Hobbit” Trilogy are productions of New Line Cinema and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Pictures (MGM), with New Line managing production. Warner Bros. Pictures is handling worldwide theatrical distribution, with select international territories as well as all international television distribution being handled by MGM.
Can't say I'm very happy with it. Thranduil, Elvenking looks and sounds amazing but the rest? Wasn't impressed by Tauriel, the Jackson-made elf, in fact I don't think I like her at all (perhaps I'm too purist but was willing to give it a try). Smaug doesn't look as epic as I thought.
