Peter Jackson has more 'Hobbit' for (more of ) your money7/31/2012
Hobbit fans, clear your calendars for summer 2014, because we're not going to get to the final installment of Peter Jackson's version of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic until then. Jackson announced today that his much-anticipated movie, "The Hobbit," will run over three installments, not two, which offers a few more hours of entertainment while simultaneously shaking an additional $12 out of your pockets. Middle-earth aficionados know that "The Hobbit" is shorter than the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy — so where'd the extra material come from? Entertainment Weekly notes that Jackson, in super-nerd mode, combed through "more than a hundred pages of appendices Tolkien later wrote that expanded on the world of 'The Hobbit.'" As Jackson put it on his Facebook page: "It has been an unexpected journey indeed, and in the words of Professor Tolkien himself, 'a tale that grew in the telling.'" [Source]
