At the Movies

PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN 2 may have a working title - the rumor is that the film will be called PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: TREASURES OF THE LOST ABYSS.

LOTR: The Return of the King News. There is strong buzz on the upcoming film (mark your calendars for December 17th) - here is a spoiler (and profanity) filled review over at AICN. I'm not kidding - if you don't like profanity, don't read this. And if you don't like spoilers, don't read this.

LOTR: potential "The Hobbit" News. Reuters is reporting that 'Rings' director Peter Jackson wants to bing 'Hobbit' to screen. BERLIN (Reuters) - New Zealand film director Peter Jackson (news), tipped to win an Oscar for his "The Lord of the Rings" epic, said Monday he would like to make "The Hobbit" prequel to the trilogy and work with some of the same actors again. Speaking to journalists in Berlin ahead of the European premiere of the last part of the "Rings" trilogy -- "The Return of the King" -- Jackson said he was sad but also relieved that the mammoth project he has worked on for seven years was over. "I'm glad there's not a fourth Lord of the Rings film next year," he said. "I feel very tired and exhausted." "I've been working very hard this year. It was the hardest year of the whole seven really," he said, adding that the last part had twice as many computer-generated shots as the second, "The Two Towers," which won an Oscar for digital effects.
