    Watch: Martin Freeman & Ricky Gervais Get Mashed Up In 'The Office: An Unexpected Journey'

    Before he was Bilbo, before he was Watson, Martin Freeman was Tim Canterbury, a lowly salesman at Wernham Hogg Paper Company. It's hard to believe, but the original U.K. "The Office" is already over ten years old, and its U.S. counterpart is wrapping up at the end of this season too. Well, if you ne...

    Well, it's a wrap. Production has ended on Edgar Wright's "The World's End" and star Simon Pegg has tweeted out the first look from the film. It's not terribly exciting as a photo, but it does showcase the fantastic English cast which includes Pegg, Nick Frost, Paddy Considine, "The Hobbit" star Mar...

    'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey': What Worked & What Didn't

    For a long time, it seemed as though "The Hobbit" would never get made. Despite the multi-billion dollar success of Peter Jackson's "Lord of the Rings" films, the rights to J.R.R. Tolkien's earlier novel were tangled up, and Jackson didn't even seem to be sure he wanted to go back to Middle Earth. E...

    Colbert's Hobbit Week Maps New York As Middle Earth

    I may not be a big Hobbit fan (review here) but I do love The Colbert Report, which is now in the middle of Hobbit week. Tolkien-obsessed Stephen Colbert visited the film's set in New Zealand and famously won a Hobbit trivia contest, beating out one of its screenwriter’s, Philippa Boy...

    'The Hobbit' Review: Bilbo Lives! Everyone Else, Not So Much.

    I have never been a Lord of the Rings fanatic, so take that into account, but The Hobbit made me miss Voldemort. I spent a fair amount of time during Peter Jackson’s latest installment in his Tolkien franchise comparing it to the Harry Potter movies, thinking how savvy J.K. Rowling’...

    Review: ‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ Rallies From A Goofy Opening To Become Another Thrilling, If Familiar, Action-Adventure Epic

    At almost three hours, Peter Jackson’s fourth foray into the world of J.R.R. Tolkien, “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” is initially worrisome and typically self-indulgent. An extremely jarring 48 fps look -- which looks like an odd "Masterpiece Theater" in HD -- is unsettling, and the opening is ...

    Ian McKellen Reveals His Pros & Cons In Reprising Gandalf, Martin Talks The Pull Of The Ring On Bilbo In 'The Hobbit' & More

    It was a while ago, so you might have forgotten, but at one point it was a question mark whether or not Ian McKellen would return to Middle Earth to play Gandalf. "Sequels aren’t necessarily as rewarding to act in as their originals," McKellen wrote on his blog at the beginning ...

    Martin Freeman & Eddie Marsan Join Edgar Wright's 'The World's End'

    Here's a fun fact: Peter Jackson had an ever so brief cameo in Edgar Wright's "Hot Fuzz" (so did Cate Blanchett, for the record). You know who else did? His future Bilbo Baggins, and now that actor will be taking in a role in "The World's End." So, small world right?

    New Image Of Martin Freeman In 'The Hobbit' Teases New Trailer Arriving Tomorrow

    It is, we're told, Tolkien Week. We're not sure entirely what that means, except that it's presumably something like Shark Week, but with elves. But in movie publicity terms, it means a big push from Warner Bros. for their upcoming "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," a two-part hastily cobbled-toge...
