Centering on the film’s title characters, Warner Bros. Pictures has revealed this final poster for ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.’ The film continues the events of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ in which the hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) travels with the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) and a company of thirteen dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) into the Kingdom of Erebor, taking them through Mirkwood, Esgaroth, and Dale to combat with the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumbebratch).
‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ stars Ian McKellen, Martin Freeman, Richard Armitage, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Evangeline Lilly, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Benedict Cumberbatch, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Graham McTavish, Michael Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O’Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Ken Stott and Aidan Turner.
The rather awesome ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ viral website, The Daily Bugle, has been updated with a new post “written” by Eddie Brock (aka Venom), that features a few references to Spider-Man lore, including naming the three founding members of “The Enforcers” as well as the Manfredi crime family. Check it out after the jump.
The recently released ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2′ trailer reveals and hints a lot if you’re familiar with the Spider-Man universe – in particular with the Sinister Six and the dealings/ulterior motives of OsCorp. One of the most interesting things about the trailer for me was the shot of Vulture’s wings and Doctor Octopus’ tentacles (it has long been speculated that Colm Feore would be playing Vulture, although there’s no confirmation at this moment in time). That shot could of course be an easter egg for further ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ installments.

Euclase has put together these fantastic digital portraits for ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.’ The film arrives in cinemas on December 13th while ’The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ concludes the trilogy on December 17th, 2014. ’The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ is the second installment of a three-part series based on J. R. R. Tolkien’s 1937 novel ‘The Hobbit,’ beginning with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.’ The three films together act as prequels to Peter Jackson’s ‘The Lord of the Rings’ film trilogy.
‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ continues the events of ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,’ in which the hobbit Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) travels with the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen) and a company of thirteen dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) into the Kingdom of Erebor, taking them through Mirkwood, Esgaroth, and Dale to combat with the dragon Smaug (Benedict Cumbebratch).
A fictional film set in the alluring world of one of the most stunning scandals to rock the United States, ‘American Hustle’ tells the story of brilliant con man Irving Rosenfeld (Christian Bale), who along with his equally cunning and seductive British partner Sydney Prosser (Amy Adams) is forced to work for a wild FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). DiMaso pushes them into a world of Jersey powerbrokers and mafia that’s as dangerous as it is enchanting. Jeremy Renner is Carmine Polito, the passionate, volatile, New Jersey political operator caught between the con-artists and Feds. Irving’s unpredictable wife Rosalyn (Jennifer Lawrence) could be the one to pull the thread that brings the entire world crashing down. Like David O. Russell’s previous films, ‘American Hustle’ defies genre, hinging on raw emotion, and life and death stakes. The film opens in New York and Los Angeles on December 13th before going wide on December 18th in the US. American Hustle’ is set for January 1st in the UK.
There’s a lot to your character in ‘American Hustle.’ For me, Irving Rosenfeld is a hustler and a romantic, and there’s a lot of comedy, charm, and vulnerability to him. I also liked how he admired his father as an honest man, but at the same time he’s determined to not allow that same fate to happen to him….
Christian Bale: Yeah. There was something that David and I found to be strangely optimistic about Irv. And the fact that he really was a man who just said, “Look, I’ve been born into a situation, but it’s not the situation I want. Why should I accept that? Am I just going to sit back my whole life and say, “Yeah, I was born this way, and I’m not trying to change it.” No, I’m gonna change it and I’m going to create myself.” It’s a little bit Pygmalion like. He says, “No, I’m not happy – and why should I be?” I’m going to become somebody who has a more exciting life and who has a more romantic life.” He wants to be someone who has something to really live for, and someone who wants to do stuff that exhilarates him – and who doesn’t want that? Everyone does. Just the difference is in search of this bigger truth that Irv is after; he’s willing to tell as many lies as he has to in order to get there.
Warner Bros. Pictures has penciled in a June 26th, 2015 release date for Joe Wright’s ‘Pan,’ a new filmic take on J.M. Barrie’s classic character, Peter Pan. In Jason Fuchs’ script, an orphan is taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against evil pirates. The Peter Pan story has proven to have staying power over the decades because of its deep themes – the loss of innocence, childhood versus adulthood, parental abandonment, immortality. And the fantasy element can be dialed up or down as much as the storyteller wants. Joe Wright previously directed ‘Pride & Prejudice,’ ‘Atonement,’ ‘The Soloist,’ ‘Hanna’ and ‘Anna Karenina.’
Warner Bros. is the latest studio to have its own Peter Pan project. Columbia is developing a movie with Channing Tatum and Joe Roth producing. And Disney, which made the classic animated feature, is adapting the Young Adult novel ‘Peter and the Starcatchers,’ with Gary Ross attached as director.
“Achieving The Dream” Featurette For Ben Stiller’s ‘The Secret Life Of Walter Mitty’ – Also Starring Kristin Wiig & Sean Penn
20th Century Fox has debuted this new behind-the-scenes featurette for ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.’ The film, directed by and starring Ben Stiller, isn’t precisely a new twist on the 1947 film starring Danny Kaye or an update of the 1939 short story by James Thurber. Instead, it’s a romance-comedy-adventure about a daydreaming photo editor (Stiller) who goes on a series of quests – ostensibly to locate a missing image (taken by a photographer played by Sean Penn), but in fact to find his true self. ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty’ is Stiller’s first directorial effort since 2008’s ‘Tropic Thunder.’ The film arrives in cinemas on December 26th. The likes of Kristen Wiig, Adam Scott, Shirley MacLaine and Patton Oswalt also star.
Ben Stiller directs and stars in THE SECRET LIFE OF WALTER MITTY, James Thurber’s classic story of a day-dreamer who escapes his anonymous life by disappearing into a world of fantasies filled with heroism, romance and action. When his job along with that of his co-worker (Kristen Wiig) are threatened, Walter takes action in the real world embarking on a global journey that turns into an adventure more extraordinary than anything he could have ever imagined.
