And The Second Hobbit Film Shall Be Called...
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.
There it is. The title of Peter Jackson's second Hobbit film. There's been some speculation about the titling of the films ever since Jackson announced he'd be stretching the adaptation of JRR Tolkien's The Hobbit from two to three movies.
Warner Bros. and MGM have also announced the release dates, so here's everything, in a neat and tidy list:
- The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, December 14, 2012
- The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, December 13, 2013
- The Hobbit: There And Back Again, July 18, 2014
I haven't read this book in a very long time. Has anyone read it recently, and want to speculate on the pacing of the story based on the title of the second film?
Also, a lot of people seem very nervous about Jackson making three films. Is it because the source material doesn't support that much movie, or is it Jackson's post-Rings record, which has been less than stellar? What are your concerns? Is anyone else cautiously optimistic (my stance, thus far)?
