    One problem with turning your two-part fantasy epic into a three-part fantasy epic is that you need to find a new title from somewhere. It's alright when a "Twilight" or a "Hunger Games" decide to split their final installment into two, because they can always go for a "Breaking Dawn Pt. 1 and 2" or...

    Theaters Won't Charge Extra To Watch 'The Hobbit' In 48fps

    No matter where you stand on the issue of director Peter Jackson shooting his now three-part adaptation of "The Hobbit" in 48 frames per second — twice the standard film speed — at least it won't cost any extra to watch it that way. At least, not any more than what you'...

    An Open Letter To Peter Jackson On Splitting 'The Hobbit' Into Three Movies

    As big fans of your work all the way back to "Bad Taste" (in fact, of your work, the only film we're not fond of is "The Lovely Bones," and let's face it, every filmmaker gets a misfire at some point), we wanted to drop you a line after hearing about some recent events.

    My Precious: Talks Get Serious For 'The Hobbit' To Be Turned Into A Trilogy

    Can you blame Warner Bros.?

    Will Peter Jackson Turn 'The Hobbit' Into A Trilogy? Director Pushing WB To Let Him Shoot More Footage In 2013

    It's interesting how full circle Peter Jackson has come on "The Hobbit." Originally done with the world of J.R.R. Tolkien after "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and ready to pass the torch on to Guillermo del Toro while staying on as a producer, a series of events found Jackso...
