The Hobbit… here, son, ‘ave this blade.

A new trailer for the Hobbit where Gandalf arms his diminutive questing companion up with a sword… Sting is it? It’s interesting that the media seem to be trying to spread a ‘This movie sucks’ message based on supposed awful early reactions at test screenings. We’ll hold our opinion until we’ve actually seen the film, […]

Merlin no more!

The current series of Merlin will be the last as BBC One’s fantasy television show reaches its conclusion this Christmas 2012… so no 6th series, folks. The family fantasy drama will bow out with a bumper two-part finale. Series five opened to a Camelot at the height of its ‘golden age’, but a menacing omen […]

Life Of Pi (2012) (film review).

Capsule: ‘Life Of Pi’ joins ‘Jonathan Livingston Seagull’ (1973) and ‘The Little Prince’ (1974) as being an adaptation of a philosophical book that reached for big meanings and it is not a lot more profound. Ang Lee’s film of Yann Martel’s novel ‘Life Of Pi’ is a visual feast, well-acted and with very fine use […]

Jack The Giant Slayer trailer.

Bryan Singer’s Jack The Giant Slayer movie has a new trailer featuring the classic fantasy tale reimagined as only the X-man movie creator could… well, that’s what we were told, and we’re sticking with it. Hasn’t that bloke from Skins done well!

Game of Thrones 3rd season… cheapest trailer ever?

Gee, did HBO run out of budget for the season three trailer or something? Did they give the job to some intern and he was just learning Adobe Premiere? There are teaser trailers, and then there are teaser trailers. Next time, just get the camera and point it a white wall with a cut-out of […]

Oz the Great and Powerful second trailer (a decent one at last)!

Oz the Great and Powerful second trailer (a decent one at last)!

Here’s the first real non-teasery trailer for the Oz the Great and Powerful movie. This one comes across as one man’s redemption from himself – imagine an unreformed 19th century Patrick Jane thrown into Oz and having to turn things around without being able to do real magic. Sounds fun. Looks colourful!

Air Middle-earth?

Air New Zealand has a tie-in to the new Hobbit film in the form of a faux safety video filled with Middle-earth types. Ah, the wags. You can tell the publicity is cranking up for the new Peter Jackson’s film’s Christmas release, can’t you?

Guardians of Middle-earth 101.

Need a lesson in how to play the new Guardians of Middle-earth game? Well, if the next Peter Jackson film doesn’t make you want to arm up as a hobbit or dwarf, then there’s really no hope for you… orcs and Gollum, pah, easy meat. I slew them all last month.

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters – sweet, they aint!

The Red Band UK trailer for Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is here in all its bloody glory. If you told me the title of this movie a year ago I would have thought you were taking the piss, but I guess they’ve made it, and here it comes. Kind of in the same vein […]

TV trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

Done much fighting? Hmmf. Thought as much! Ah, the dry humour of a dwarf with a battleaxe – the weapon, not his wife (females didn’t get much of a look-in in Tolkien’s works). Here’s the new TV trailer for Peter Jackson’s next epic, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, at any rate.
