Change in Release Schedule for The Hobbit, Part 3

News came out ten hours ago that instead of being released in July 2014, The Hobbit, Part 3 will be pushed back to become a holiday release, now scheduled for December 2014. According to Reuters...

The final installment of “The Hobbit” film trilogy will be released on December 17, 2014, five months later than planned, Warner Bros. said on Thursday.

“The Hobbit: There and Back Again” had been set to debut in July 2014. It will follow “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,” which came out in December 2012, and “The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug,” which reached theaters in December 2013.

“We’re excited to complete the trilogy the same way we started it, as a holiday treat for moviegoers everywhere,” said Dan Fellman, president of distribution for Warner Bros., a unit of Time Warner Inc.

“The Hobbit” series is a prequel to J.R.R. Tolkien’s epic fantasy “The Lord of the Rings,” which director Peter Jackson made into three Oscar-winning films about a decade ago.


This, of course, really kills the idea of a Minnesota get-together for the premier *sigh*...
