    THE HOBBITS NOW WITH NEW SUBTITLES AND RELEASE DATES


    Actually, the following news aren't much of a surprise! Anyway, New Line Cinema, Warner Bros and MGM have jointly announced the new subtitles and release dates for the upcoming The Hobbit project. The Peter Jackson-directed two parts adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved master piece "The Hobbit" is currently on active shooting at various locations in New Zealand.

    The Hobbit as we have known will be split into two-parts. The part one is now called "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" while part two is now called "The Hobbit: There and Back Again". The first part will be released on 14 December 2012 while the second part will be released a year later on 13 December 2013. The official synopsis that was provided in the press release is as follows:
    "Both films are set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien’s “The Lord of the Rings” which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in the blockbuster trilogy that culminated with the Oscar-winning The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. The adventure of “The Hobbit” follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug."

    Here are part of the official press release description as also featured on Coming Soon and Slash Film:
