I am henceforth dubbing the incorrectly named bridge film... Can't Post

The Sprequel! As I mentioned in another thread, this one is the rare movie that is both a prequel and a sequel, and as Guillermo said it is incorrectly referred to as the "bridge film" I figured this would be a good name.

Hope you like it! hehehe. Wink

Here's to Del Toro becoming the Irvin Kershner of Middle Earth!

What about "The White Council*" until we get a better name? [In reply to] Can't Post

    Nothing is certain. However, it would be surprising if the white council doesn't feature prominently in this second movie.

*The idea is not mine though. I saw it here on occasions.

If the second movie is really Gandalf-centric, it could also be called The Grey Pilgrim since we'd see him running around all over Middle Earth (helping Bilbo and the Dwarves, investigating Dol Guldur, attending the White Council and running after Gollum for answers)

Im just going to stick with [In reply to] Can't Post

'the second Film' (sorry Compa Wink) until the second film has a name.
I cant seem to stamp it with anything more than that ... Crazy
but I like your thinking there with the new title.
I hope we get a name sooner than later.

I think we'd had this discussion here some time back [In reply to] Can't Post

and got ourselves resolved on two options:

1. The Rise Of The Shadow
2. The Return Of The Shadow

'The Return Of The Shadow' comes in second since someone righty pointed we already have a 'Return' movie in rotk Wink

The Tween Film / [In reply to] Can't Post


The audacious proposal stirred his heart. And the stirring became a song, and it mingled with the songs of Gil-galad and Celebrian, and with those of Feanor and Fingon. The song-weaving created a larger song, and then another, until suddenly it was as if a long forgotten memory woke and for one breathtaking moment the Music of the Ainur revealed itself in all glory. He opened his lips to sing and share this song. Then he realized that the others would not understand. Not even Mithrandir given his current state of mind. So he smiled and simply said "A diversion.”

I remember that discussion... [In reply to] Can't Post

hehehe... the only problem I see with those particular two is they sound very Star Wars-y. There were a lot of rumors that Episode 3 was actually going to be called The Rise of the Empire.

Lucas has actually been criticized for naming 3 of the six movies The something of the something.

Lord Actually [In reply to] Can't Post

Since the film may be something like Love Actually, which was a number of separate storylines following character relationships that were all connected in some way or other.

BTW, I'm j/k, I think that title would suck.

How about THIGWIT? [In reply to] Can't Post

(The Hobbit is great--what is that?)

"For DORA BAGGINS in memory of a LONG correspondence, with love from Bilbo; on a large wastebasket. Dora was Drogo's sister, and the eldest surviving female relative of Bilbo and Frodo; she was ninety-nine, and had written reams of good advice for more than half a century."

Even if [In reply to] Can't Post

the others don't seem to like the word, I do! It fits the content of the Hobbit, is short and easy to remember Cool

I do not suffer from LotR obsession - I enjoy every minute of it.

LOL!!!Laugh Thigwit...that's a good one!

TBMTINABM is what it's been in my head all day- I think I'll end up going with "sprequel," but until I read Compa's post, it's been "The Bridge Movie That Is Not A Bridge Movie"

(I'm keeping a mental list of all these names, anyways Wink)

The Coming of The Shadow [In reply to] Can't Post

Very nice I think?

I hope Del Toro does what PJ did....make verbal and visual refs to book chapter titles in the course of the films..(we know Shore will continue to do this and title his pieces after Hobbit chapters.)

Hopefully, the 2nd films' title will come from a chapter title or from some buried phrase from the book Appendices.)
