Pics from The Hobbit, film clips from Frankenweenie and The House at the End of the Street, a featurette for Dredd and a release date change for Les Miserables.
The Hobbit has a bunch of new photos today and I’m still a bit lost as to which of the three Hobbit films these come from. Clearly the one of Bilbo is from… all of them. And Gandalf! That one is definitely from the second one, what with that look in his eyes that say “Second one, dude.”
And Gollum has the bulbous eyes of the first film.
Of course I’m kidding. These are all from my Hobbit fan film, “Boners in Hobbitville.”
No? THEN YOU FIGURE IT OUT. Actually, I think they’re all from the first film, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Cool.
Frankenweenie has a new film clip that shows the resurrection of the dog Sparky. It’s sorta nice and sweet, but at the same time it’s pretty gross. The dog’s ASS falls off.
You’re pretty much seen this entire clip in the trailers, so don’t expect much new here, just a more complete look at the scene.
The House at the End of the Street
To be fair, this film clip from The House at the End of the Street is only part clip, part trailer. It does show Jennifer Lawrence sing, which is funny. She sounds pretty good, but you can tell she’s not much of a singer. Before I get stabbed for insulting Katniss, let me explain that with all the movie magic, great record producers and whatnot, I sound better in the shower. I DO. SHUT UP.
Dredd has a new featurette that focuses on his gadgets and uniform. The uniform stuff isn’t too terribly interesting, though I like how the creator said that in one of the early issues Dredd’s face was shown, and it was so bad that the editor out a CENSORED bar over it. That’s pretty sweet.
It’s also cool that the motorcycle and gun are based on normal stuff, with just a few enhancements. This film, while certainly futuristic and dystopian, has a badass quality that I think this more down-to-Earth element will enhance. Cool.
Les Miserables, the only musical this year I’m looking forward to (I can’t think of another, but I hope I insulted something), has changed its release date from December 14 to December 25. I’m going to make a few reasons up for this, all of which are no doubt correct. First, December 14 is when The Hobbit comes out, and they didn’t want to get eaten alive by it. There will likely be different audiences for the two films, but there’s still a good chance The Hobbit would make Les Miserables look like a monkey turd in terms of gross.
Second, The Great Gatsby was supposed to come out on Christmas, but it was pushed to next summer, so there’s an opening for a classic tale.
I am, by the way, correct on both points. You’re welcome for this elucidation.
