     Want Hobbit Movie News? Hobbit Headlines of the Week!

Hobbit Headlines for the period of 14th - 22nd June 2013.

Please see below for classification of spoilers:

S! - Spoiler! (Warning - you will be spoiled by opening the link)
LS - Limited Spoilers (Tidbits and snippets, no hard spoilers)
NS - No Spoilers (No spoilers contained whatsoever)

***Please note: Now that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has been released worldwide, spoiler tags for news relating solely to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will no longer be used (they will all be marked with "NS"). This includes any DVD news, behind the scene footage, commentaries, DVD/radio/TV/magazine interviews, screen-captures, promotional pictures and posters, any "making of" documentaries and videos, featurettes, merchandise, trailers, clips, tie-in material (books etc.), and so on. Spoiler tags will now only be used for stories relating to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, and extended editions for all three films.***

You have been warned!
