If you're as big of a nerd as I am (and I'm sure you are) you've been waiting for The Hobbit to be released since the last Lord of the Rings hit theaters a thousand years ago. Actually, 8 years ago, but it feels like a thousand years ago. Well, it's here! After plenty of studio bickering and several finanical setbacks that plagued the film in the early stages, we finally get a glimpse of Bilbo Baggins' adventures to the Lonely Mountain with all our favorite LOTR characters; including Legolas, Gandalf, Frodo, Gollum et al.
Unfortunately for all us, we're going to have to wait another year, as the film will not be released in theaters until December 14, 2012. So, in the meantime, I guess you'll just have to watch the trailer on repeat and play with your action figures.
Rupert Grint lets out his inner fanboy at the Rise of the Planet of the Apes premiere in Los Angeles, 07/29/11.
The 22-year-old actor surprised movie fans by showing his support for friend/Harry Potter co-star Tom Felton at Hollywood Boulevard. Bromance is in the air, just look at Rupert's shirt: 'I <3 Tom Felton'. How cute! At first glance, you'd think the twosome just randomly crashed the premiere for some good old bonding time, but Tom is actually in the film! Rise of the Planet of the Apes includes leads James Franco and Slumdog Millionaire actress Freida Pinto, whom were both present in the premiere as well.
