I can barely keep up with all the juicy bits coming from San Diego Comic-Con. Can you imagine actually attending the mayhem?

The latest to premiere at the annual event is the trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies. It’s the conclusion to The Hobbit trilogy. It’s hard to believe that Peter Jackson is wrapping up another Middle Earth trilogy. Though not as critically-acclaimed as the Lord Of The Rings trilogy, The Hobbit franchise has done respectably well at the box office. I’m sure Warner Bros isn’t complaining.

Martin Freeman, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Cate Blanchett, Luke Evans, Ian McKellen, Richard Armitage, Lee Pace, and Benedict Cumberbatch all star in the film, which is set to hit theaters on December 17. Check out the trailer below which uses a beloved song from Return of the King.

Movie Synopsis

“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.

My biggest regret when I visited New Zealand last year was not venturing out of Auckland to check out the Lord of the Rings Hobbit set. I was visiting the country for only a couple of days before heading to Australia and completely forgot about the movie tour. I would’ve given anything for a photo of myself hanging out in the Shire. Too bad this promo wasn’t airing before my trip to remind me that Middle Earth wasn’t too far away.

Air New Zealand, the official airline of Middle Earth, is giving you an opportunity to win tickets for two to the worldwide premiere of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in Los Angeles. If that doesn’t pique your interest, they’re also giving away a five night trip to New Zealand which includes a visit to Hobbiton in Matamata. Check out the wicked commercial below. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13, 2013.

Warner Bros just released a brand new trailer for The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug and it looks gooooooood. Peter Jackson promises more action, more adventure and most importantly, more Orlando Bloom. The actor returns to reprise his role as fan favorite Legolas.

The sequel to The Hobbit hits theaters December 13. Hopefully, for both Jackson and the studio it’s met with a better reception than its predecessor. In its defense, anything from the original Lord of the Rings trilogy would’ve been a disappointment for hardcore fans. Check out the new trailer below.

Two days before it was supposed to make its debut during previews for Man of Steel, the movie trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has made its way online. Based on initial impression, it looks like it’s going to be better than the first film. Granted, I like Evangeline Lilly (Lost) and glad she’s part of the franchise. She looks fantastic in the preview. It also doesn’t hurt that Orlando Bloom reprises his role of Legolas in the sequel.

The storyline continues the events of An Unexpected Journey, in which the hobbit Bilbo Baggins travels with the Wizard Gandalf, the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield, and his company into the Kingdom of Erebor, taking them through Mirkwood, Esgaroth, and Dale to eventually the epic combat with the dragon Smaug. Benedict Cumberbatch (Star Trek Into Darkness) voices the titular dragon. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug hits theaters on December 13, 2013. Check out the brand spanking new trailer below.

The Hobbit‘s sexy Elijah Wood is celebrating his birthday today, turning 32 years old (I’m turning 32 in a month as well – wowza!) The actor has a number of projects on the go right now that are in post production, some in pre-production, and one that’ he’s currently filming which is called Open Windows. The movie is a “found footage” type thriller that involves a laptop computer and various POV cameras set up around a house. Essentially, a girl (Sasha Grey) is trapped in a house and Wood’s character has to save her before it’s too late.

A little over a year ago, Tyrell had written a Who’d You Rather post between Elijah Wood and Daniel Radcliffe, both leading men in “magical” cult classic films. Radcliffe ended up taking the lead in the poll, but personally, I’d definitely take Elijah’s “Wood” over Harry Potter’s “Wand”. Wood has the sexiest eyes and is always so adorable on screen.

Check out a collection of some of his sexiest pictures below. There are a couple shirtless ones from his role on the TV series, Wilfred as well as a couple homoerotic ones too. I also included a the Beastie Boys music video he did back in 2011 as well as the hilarious “7 Minutes In Heaven” interview he did that year as well.

Les Miserables Lands In Third Place At Box Office

In: Donovan, Movies

Despite achieving the second best Christmas Day opening in history, Les Miserables had to settle for the bronze medal at the box office this weekend. The musical has amassed a sturdy $64 million since its opening. Even in third place, the Victor Hugo adaption has the best start for any musical. With the awards season kicking into high gear in the next few weeks, it’s numbers will undoubtedly continue to rise.

For the third week in a row, The Hobbit reigned supreme. Nabbing another $32 million, the Warner Bros. flick crashed through the $200 million barrier. With it’s small decline from last week’s numbers, the film has a good chance of reaching the $300 million milestone.

Landing in between Les Miserables and The Hobbit, is Quentin Tarantino’s latest- Django Unchained. The slave Western film is the best debut of Tarantino’s career with $30 million and $64 million since it’s Christmas Day launch. It’s projected to topple the director’s best film to date- Inglorious Basterds which notched $120.5 during its run. In other box office news, Skyfall crossed over $1 billion worldwide making it the 14th highest-grossing film. Check out the rest of this week’s Top 10 below.

So many movies are coming out this month and so many movie trailers have debuted as of late – it’s that time of year! For the second week in a row, The Hobbit has dominated the box office. With an additional $36.7 million estimated from this weekend, the film has now reached a total of just under $150 million.

Tom Cruise’s new movie, Jack Reacher opened this weekend and came in second with an estimated $15.6 million. In the film, Cruise plays a homicide investigator who delves deeper into a case involving a trained military sniper who shot five random victims. Given the subject matter, it’s understandable as to why the film’s premiere in theatres was delayed by a week after the devastating school shooting in Connecticut.

Another newbie this weekend was the This Is 40 comedy, starring Paul Rudd, Melissa McCarthy, Leslie Mann, and more. The R-Rated comedy serves as somewhat of a sequel to Judd Apatow’s Knocked Up movie.

Also opening within the past week were The Guilt Trip (check out Matt’s movie review here) and Monsters, Inc. 3D. See how these two films did and what other movies make up this weekend’s top 10 list below.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey absolutely dominated the box office in this, it’s opening weekend. Homorazzi cast member Matt reviewed the film and he absolutely love it (Check out his review here).

The film is estimated to have brought in almost $84.8 million. With that, the film set a new record for the largest December opening weekend performance on record by topping the $77.21 million debut of 2007′s I Am Legend. That being said, it didn’t set a new record when you adjust for ticket price inflation. In 2003, The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King opened with $72.63 million in unadjusted terms, but when you adjust for inflation, it still holds the record with $95.6 million – precious!

Coming in a distant second was Rise Of The Guardians. Check out the list below to see how distant this second place spot was and how the rest of the top 10 films did at the box office this weekend. Also, I’ve included a funny video from Jimmy Kimmel that warns of the side effects of watching the film that was shot at 48 frames per second (double what most films are shot at)
