The Hobbit was originally proposed as three movies, then went to two, and is now apparently back to three. From what I understand the trilogy will mine details from the supplemental material in Return of the King (added after the conclusion of the book) fill three movies.
Geeks rejoice! Indiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Ark is being re-released in IMAX theaters from Sept. 7-Sept. 18, 2012. This isn't a George Lucas "Greedo shot first" re-release; Spielberg hasn't changed anything in the film itself, save to enhance the video and audio so that it will work with IMAX.
This is turning into one geeky summer for television, with five science fiction shows on the air at once -- Futurama, Falling Skies, Warehouse 13, Eureka and Alphas -- and most of them are actually good!. Join me as I run down the shows and take a look at trailers for their respective seasons.
