How Did the ‘Hobbit’ Movies Go So Horribly Awry?

Hello there, fantasy fans! As you may or may not know, this December 17th will bring us the release of the third and (hopefully!) final Hobbit film, The Hobbit: Can You Believe They’re Still Making These Fucking Things? The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies — and just in case you were planning on sitting this one out (and seriously, who could blame you?), distributor Warner Brothers has a couple of strategically timed information leaks to lure you in. First, they’ve engaged fellow Time Warner subsidiary Entertainment Weekly to run an early feature on director Peter Jackson’s “battle plans,” trumpeting the film’s climactic, 45-minute battle sequence. And secondly, the studio has told Forbes that the film will be preceded by the first teaser trailer for Batman v Superman. Put together, these two announcements smack mostly of desperation — a quality that has come to overwhelm this increasingly irrelevant… Read More

10 Essential Films from ‘EW”s ‘Best Movies You’ve Never Seen’ List

Last week, Entertainment Weekly published a list of the 50 Greatest Movies You’ve Never Seen from the past two decades. Stars like Ryan Gosling, Kate Winslet, and Emily Blunt chose several of the selections. EW hasn’t ranked the list, because “ranking movies that are already underrated just seems cruel.” We can’t say we agree with all of their choices — and we wonder if the least-seen films actually predate the past 20 years — but we’ve scoured the massive listing for the essentials so you don’t have to. These are some of our favorites. Tell us what movies inspired you to update your Netflix queue, or which of the 50 films you’d have chosen instead. … Read More

Season 2 of 'Game of Thrones' Will Differ from 'A Clash of Kings'

Warning: Some spoilers ahead — especially if you haven’t read the books. If you read through the big Game of Thrones cover story by James Hibberd in the latest issue of Entertainment Weekly, then you know that the upcoming season of the HBO show won’t religiously follow what happened in A Clash of Kings, the George R.R. Martin book that it’s based on. Namely, while Jamie Lannister spends most of the second book imprisoned in Riverrun while the War of the Five Kings rages around him, it won’t necessary play out that way for his character onscreen. “Hey, you can’t just bench me, what the hell is that,” says Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the Danish actor who plays the Kingslayer. “But it makes sense for the journey that Jamie’s on. He’s not in a happy place.”

They also plan to flesh out “a forbidden romance” involving Robb Stark that we don’t learn about in the books until A Storm of Swords, the third installment of Song of Ice and Fire series — and at that point, he’s already married. Why go to the trouble to invent a backstory? According to executive producer Dan Weiss, “If we didn’t have Richard Madden on the show, teenage girls everywhere would abandon us en masse.” While he doesn’t confirm that the plotline will involve nude scenes, he does promise that “at least one returning character getting naked for the first time.” … Read More
