     Want Hobbit Movie News? Hobbit Headlines of the Week!  

Hobbit Headlines for the period of 04th - 11th April 2014.

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)

UPDATED - 11th April 2014 - Spoilers tags will only be used for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug extended edition and The Hobbit: There and Back Again:

***Please note:

Now that The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has been released worldwide, spoiler tags for news relating solely to the first two movies, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, will no longer be used. This means all news, regardless of content, will be marked with "NS"). The same also applies for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey extended edition news. Spoiler tags will now only be used for stories relating to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug extended edition and The Hobbit: There and Back Again. This includes any DVD news, video blogs, 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.***

You have been warned!
