“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” TV spot: A game of riddles with Gollum

Nothing will tie “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” in to Peter Jackson’s “The Lord of the Rings” trilogy as much as the scene where Bilbo Baggins first meets Gollum. It was a scene that was featured in “The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring,” and it’s a scene that will be pivotal in the upcoming film as well.

That fateful meeting is the focus of a new TV spot for the upcoming film, which shows Bilbo and Gollum playing their game of riddles. Fans of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved series know how that story ends, but it will likely be a tense scene to watch regardless. After all, we know that Gollum doesn’t easily say goodbye to his “precious.”

Still, there is plenty in this movie that fans haven’t seen before. Jackson expanded on the story of “The Hobbit” by using some of the material contained in the Appendices at the end of “The Return of the King” novel, so “The Hobbit” films will tell the story of Gandalf the Grey and the White Council as much as it does the story of Bilbo. Color us curious about this new project and how it brings the various pieces of the Middle-Earth together in a new trilogy.

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” tells the first part of Bilbo Baggins’ epic adventure from Hobbiton to the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he’ll befriend dwarves, face off against goblins, meet a dragon and discover the One Ring that will change his life forever.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is due in theaters on December 13, 2013, while “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” comes out July 18, 2014.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” debuts first image

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” hits theaters in a week, but we already have our first look at its sequel. The first image from “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” has been released and shows Bilbo Baggins in the den of Smaug.

The photo was released by Entertainment Weekly, which earlier today also gave us our first look at Legolas in the new “Hobbit” films. The magazine doesn’t say exactly when this image will take place in the movie, but it did promise that there’s much more of the story to tell after Bilbo first encounters Smaug.

“The dragon is a huge, wonderful, amazing part of the story, but it doesn’t end there,” screenwriter and producer Philippa Boyens told EW. “Everyone can suspect there’s a rather large battle in film three.”

“The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” tells the first part of Bilbo Baggins’ epic adventure from Hobbiton to the Lonely Mountain. Along the way, he’ll befriend dwarves, face off against goblins, meet a dragon and discover the One Ring that will change his life forever.

“The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug” is due in theaters on December 13, 2013, while “The Hobbit: There and Back Again” comes out July 18, 2014.

“Star Trek Into Darkness” prologue IMAX locations revealed

Stressing about whether or not your nearby IMAX theater will be showing the nine-minute “Star Trek Into Darkness” prologue? Well, you’re in luck, because the full list of IMAX theaters showing it before screenings of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” has been released.

Though the movie’s official website has a list of the locations where the prologue is playing, we’d direct you to the list that Comic Book Movie put together instead. Keep in mind that it’s better to check before you get tickets for a screening, as not all IMAX theaters will be showing the footage.

For those of you who can’t make it to one of these locations, be reminded that the rest of “The Hobbit” screenings will be showing a theatrical “Star Trek Into Darkness” trailer before the movie. It will be an extended version of the announcement trailer that debuted yesterday.

“Star Trek Into Darkness” is directed by J.J. Abrams and stars Pine, Zachary Quinto, Zoe Saldana, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin, Karl Urban, John Cho and Bruce Greenwood. Newcomers Alice Eve and Benedict Cumberbatch have been added in undisclosed roles. The film is slated to hit theaters on May 17 in IMAX and 3D. Here’s it’s official film synopsos:

In Summer 2013, pioneering director J.J. Abrams will deliver an explosive action thriller that takes ‘Star Trek Into Darkness.’ When the crew of the Enterprise is called back home, they find an unstoppable force of terror from within their own organization has detonated the fleet and everything it stands for, leaving our world in a state of crisis.

With a personal score to settle, Captain Kirk leads a manhunt to a war-zone world to capture a one man weapon of mass destruction. As our heroes are propelled into an epic chess game of life and death, love will be challenged, friendships will be torn apart, and sacrifices must be made for the only family Kirk has left: his crew.

Will you be going to see the prologue or just the regular trailer? Tell us in the comments section below or on Facebook and Twitter.
