So here we are then, the final trailer for the final Hobbit film has been released. This is the last time we’ll ever see a trailer for one of Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth films and it makes me very sad.
I absolutely loved Lord of the Rings and always name the trilogy as my favourite film. I’ve enjoyed The Hobbit but it’s never real,y lived up to my expectations. I hope The Battle of the Five Armies gives the series a fitting send-off and actually the trailer looks pretty epic.
i both look forward to and dread seeing the final film – it really will be the end of a chapter for me, I started writing about LotR before Fellowship was even released and 14 years later it’s time to say goodbye…
Rising star Miles Teller is in talks to star in a new indie drama from the director of The Amazing Spider-Man.
Marc Webb is set to direct The Only Living Boy In New York which is about a young man who discovers his father is having an affair. When he tries to stop it, the son becomes involved with the woman as well.
Teller is probably best known for his role in the Divergent series – he’s also in the forthcoming Whiplash which was one of the best films I saw at this year’s London Film Festival.
Could Michael Fassbender finally be the actor who says yes to playing Apple boss Steve Jobs?
According to reports, Fassy is in talks to star in the drama which will be directed by Danny Boyle and is written by Aaron Sorkin – both Oscar winners.
Leonardo DiCaprio and Christian Bale have both previously been said to be up for the role before both dropping out – which I find strange given the calibre of both the writer and director.
Will Fassbender stick with the project? We’ll just have to wait and see.
The trailer for the stand-alone a minions movie has finally arrived.
The film sees Stuart, Kevin and Bob travel to New York in search of a despicable genius to work for. The film’s voice cast includes Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton and Allison Janney.
It’ll be released next summer and the trailer is probably the cutest thing you’ll see this year: http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=P9-FCC6I7u0

The game includes top-down stealth with player-generated levels.
Players cannot kill in the game so will have to use their Ricochet device to control enemies and edit the environment.

Ricky Gervais is heading back to the screen.
He’s going to star in and direct Special Correspondents, a comedy about a radio journalist and his producer who try to increase their flagging ratings by pretending to be kidnapped in Ecaudor.
Really they’re hiding out in a restaurant opposite their New York radio station. As a former radio producer I can tell you this would NEVER happen!!
Eric Bana will play the journalist with Gervais as his producer.
