'The Hobbit' fan event: Meet Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, director Peter Jackson, and more


Those poor elves in Middle-earth are finally getting a decent Wi-Fi connection.

They’ll need it for Nov. 4, when fans can meet and greet director Peter Jackson and the cast of the second film in the Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, via satellite-linked cinemas all over the world. Hobbit stars will be scattered throughout movie theaters in Los Angeles, New York, London, and Wellington, New Zealand. Each theater will be connected by satellite, so audiences in each theater can participate in a simultaneous Q&A and get a first look at extended footage from the film.

Your Middle-earth guide? CNN anchor Anderson Cooper will host the entire event from New York, joined by Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield) and Orlando Bloom (Legolas). Evangeline Lilly, who joins the cast as Elf warrior, Tauriel, will log on from Los Angeles. London will host other cast additions Lee Pace (who plays Elf King Thranduil), Luke Evans (Bard the Bowman) and Andy Serkis, who previously played Gollum. Director Peter Jackson will join from Wellington. Other select theaters around the world will also allow fans to watch the event.

Can’t make the trek to a Hobbit host city? Watch from your computer screen, as it will also be streamed online.

For more details on participating theaters and how to sign up, check out the official movie website, The Hobbit Facebook page, and official Twitter under hashtag #hobbitfanevent.

The fan event will take place Nov. 4, at 5 p.m. ET. The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug arrives in theaters Dec. 13.

'The Avengers': See the teaser for the superhero team's Super Bowl trailer

It’s a teaser … for a trailer.

And yes, it’s only 17 seconds long, but for superhero fans starving for news about The Avengers, this short clip from Sunday’s Super Bowl trailer is a welcome morsel.

The clip (see it after the jump) was revealed after a Twitter live-chat today, with Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Hiddleston, Clark Gregg, and writer-director Joss Whedon providing a few A’s to their fans’ many Q’s.

The responses weren’t always so serious, but there was some good debunking (that rumor about Spider-Man being in the film…? False.) A little more news came out afterward: The Avengers will be remastered into IMAX 3-D for its May 4 debut. So prepare your eyeballs for that.

Joss Whedon: 'The Avengers' is seen through one superhero's eyes -- EXCLUSIVE


While The Avengers is clearly a group effort uniting some of Marvel’s most iconic superheroes, one crusader in particular will serve as the perspective for the movie, according to writer-director Joss Whedon.

Longtime fans of the comic series will probably be pleased to hear which character he thinks provides the grounding focus.


Alternate-history Spielberg: Who ALMOST starred in his most famous movies?

Behind every movie you love, there is a story about how it almost became something entirely different.

In Steven Spielberg’s recent EW Interview, he revealed plot changes and alternate casting that might have made some classic movies virtually unrecognizable. Everyone knows Tom Selleck was his first choice to play Indiana Jones, though Selleck couldn’t get released from his Magnum P.I. contract to film it.

There are many more lesser-known stories about similar switches. Click through to see how E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial, Jurassic Park, Hook, and even Jaws might look in an alternate Spielbergian universe…


'Princess Bride': New poster revealed for Jason Reitman's live reading

His name is Jason Reitman. He is recreating The Princess Bride live on stage. Prepare to smile.

The Young Adult and Up in the Air filmmaker has created a phenomenon in Los Angeles with his first two live readings of classic movies, starting with The Breakfast Club (featuring Jennifer Garner, Aaron Paul, and Patton Oswalt in the roles originated by Molly Ringwald, Judd Nelson, and Anthony Michael Hall). His second installment was The Apartment, with Steve Carell, Natalie Portman, and Pierce Brosnan in the Jack Lemmon, Shirley MacLaine, and Fred MacMurray parts. READ FULL STORY

'Prometheus': Ridley Scott returns to space -- FIRST LOOK

When it comes to sci-fi classics, Ridley Scott has a pretty impeccable record. Not only did he direct the fiery 1979 action-fest Alien, he helmed the genre-redefining Blade Runner in 1982.

So it’s understandable that anticipation is running high for Scott’s upcoming sci-fi return, Prometheus, a 3-D space thriller starring Charlize Theron, Michael Fassbender, and Noomi Rapace, which is set to hit theaters on June 8, 2012. Lucky for you, EW has the exclusive first look at the film! READ FULL STORY

'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' audience rating from CinemaScore doesn't sparkle

Okay, so The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 1 gets a B-plus from moviegoers.


A B-plus ranking from CinemaScore? That’s it?

Granted, a B-plus isn’t terrible, but considering the passion and hysteria surrounding this franchise, it’s a bit of a surprise. New Moon got an A-minus, and Eclipse scored an A.

So what happened here? Did something in this film shake the vampire-loving faithful?

Actually, blame the boyfriends …


'The Avengers': Mark Ruffalo salutes Edward Norton, Tom Hiddleston emerges a rock star, and more at NYCC

Avengers assemble!

And so they did. Mark Ruffalo, Chris Evans, Tom Hiddleston, Cobie Smulders, Clark Gregg and Marvel President of Production Kevin Feige took the stage at New York Comic Con’s IGN Theater Saturday night to screen new footage from 2012’s The Avengers and geek out on all things super and heroic.

While the wildly enthusiastic crowd oohed and aahed over a clip of Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow recruiting a down-and-out Bruce Banner in an Indian slum (one guy yelled, “I want your baby, Scarlett!”), they were every bit as reactive when it came to the panel itself. Some highlights after the break: READ FULL STORY

'The Avengers' trailer: What it shows us, what it doesn't

Okay, so this rules.

Then again, as Loki whispers in the first seconds of this trailer for The Avengers: “You were made to be ruled.”

There should be enough here to simultaneously satisfy fans who have been yearning for this movie ever since Samuel L. Jackson turned up at the end of 2008’s Iron Man to say, “You have become part of a bigger universe,” and made everybody angry that May 4, 2012 couldn’t come sooner. You wouldn’t like us when we’re angry.

Let’s break down what we see in the trailer (embedded after the jump), and what we don’t. READ FULL STORY

From 'Human Centipede 2' to 'Zombie Ass': Fantastic Fest organizer Tim League talks about this year's line-up

The still ongoing Toronto Film Festival may have boasted appearances from such cinematic luminaries as George Clooney, Brad Pitt, and Ryan Gosling. But is it screening a film called Zombie Ass? It is not! To see that movie — and world premieres of a host of other horror, fantasy, sci-fi, and/or action movies — you will need to travel to Austin, Tx., which from September 22 once again plays host to America’s largest genre movie film festival, Fantastic Fest.

EW spoke with Fantastic Fest director, and Alamo Drafthouse cinema co-founder, Tim League for the lowdown on the (at times NSFW) mayhem. READ FULL STORY
