The Hobbit Film Trilogy Thread
John Crichton posted a topic in Tolkien CentralPeter Jackson comments on a movie version of The Hobbit. The short story: he doesn't expect the lawyers to work out a deal that'll let the movie be made in less than 4 years. Sounds like lawyers. :roll:

The Desolation of Smaug SPOILERS ALLOWED Discussion Thread
Jay posted a topic in Tolkien CentralHiya gang. Just like last year, with the The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey FILM Discussion Thread, we are creating this thread so people who have seen the film can discuss it (or people who are reading spoilers can discuss them openly), which leaves the existing The Hobbit Film Trilogy Thread clean for those wishing to avoid spoilers until they've seen the film. So, spoiler-filled discussion of the film here, anticipation of the film including new commercials, trailers, posters, promos, ticket purchasing, etc talk there. Enjoy!
I figured it was time to start a new thread now that we're really moving on to a new movie. And we have a preliminary date: June 29, 2012! Speculation to commence below.
The Hobbit: The Battle of the Underwhelming Prequels
Quintus posted a topic in Tolkien CentralWhich, in your opinion, is the most lacklustre entry out of the three most recent franchise prestige damaging movies? I would say AUJ by a considerable margin. Not only is it a shoe-in for the most visually repellent big budget movie of all time, but it also went out of its way to out-bloat the entire LotR EEs and King Kong put together. Never has there been such redundancy in moving pictures and such disrespect for the art of editing. And on top of all that you have a regurgitated and tedious score which makes James Horner look like Morrissey. Edit: I've changed my mind to Battle of the Five Armies after seeing it today.
It seems they were not pleased with Returns, and want to do a reboot. Will this mean we can kiss Williams' heroic march goodbye forever? Or will they not be able to sepparate it from Superman? Source
Ender's Game (2013 Film)
Jay posted a topic in General DiscussionAnyone else here a fan of Ender's Game or any of its sequel books? I read Ender's Game a few years back and was blown away by how good it was! It was already top notch before the climax, and the climax was so PERFECT and unexpected that just amped up my appreciation ever more........ and then, the denouement was equally stunning and perfect. What a great novel! I read the sequel - Speaker For The Dead - shortly after, and while I did like it, it's quite a different novel from Ender's Game, and I haven't been compelled to read its sequels (Xenocide and Children of the Mind) yet. I might instead move on to the shadow series, starting with Ender's Shadow - which I hear is quite good. I am interested in what happened to all those character's from Ender's Game since they don't appear in the original sequels. Since that series he's continued to write prequels and side-quells and spin-offs and all sorts of other stuff I don't know anything about. However, what I am really excited about is that after YEARS of development hell, they are FINALLY making a movie version - it's filming right now! It stars the kid from Hugo as Ender (great choice!), Abigail Breslin (yes, the Little Miss Sunshine chick) as Valentine, Ben Kinglsey as Mazer, and Harrison Freaking Ford as Graff (!!!!!) Apparently the script is a combo of elements from both Ender's Game and Ender's Shadow. Should be interesting. The latest news is that the film just got pushed back from March 2013 to November 13, opening just 3 weeks before the sequel to The Hunger Games. I think this is a brilliant move. Any one else read the books? Anyone else pumped for the film? I wonder who will score the film? Giacchino would be PERFECT!!!!!! The director's last film was X-Men Origins: Wolverine, which was scored by Harry Gregson-Williams.

Disney has released the teaser trailer for Sam Raimi's Wizard of Oz prequel Oz: The Great & Powerful in the wake of its Comic Con debut. [media=] It looks a lot better than I was expecting. I hope Danny Elfman can weave the same kind of magic he did for Alice in Wonderland three years prior.
