Well, a summer "Hobbit" probably would've been kind of weird anyway.
The three installments of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" will now completely follow the release format of a certain other Middle-earth trilogy as the third and final chapter, "The Hobbit: There and Back Again," has been pushed back to Dec. 17, 2014, according to Deadline.
"There and Back Again" was originally scheduled for July 18, 2014, which would've made it the first Tolkien "summer movie" — and put it in direct competition with "X-Men: Days of Future Past." Get More »

Actor/writer/comedian and all-around renaissance man Stephen Fry ("Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows") may be six-foot-five-inches tall, but this big-hearted personality is also a champion of the little guy. Make that the really little guy, in the case of "The Hobbit."
Yes, Fry is portraying the money-grubbing coward Master of Lake-town in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: There and Back Again," but according to The Guardian he's actually siding AGAINST his own production in the case of England's The Hobbit pub in Portswood, Southampton, which was told by the Saul Zaentz Company it had until the end of May to change its name.
The treacherous expedition to Lonely Mountain has gained another traveler.
It's definitely the more the merrier when it comes to "The Hobbit," as "Boondock Saints" star Billy Connolly has joined director Peter Jackson's two-part Tolkien adaptation, according to Deadline.
Connolly joins the campaign to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug in the role of Dain Ironfoot, a fearsome Dwarf warrior and cousin to Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage). He's also the final actor to be cast in "The Hobbit." Get More »
George Lucas broke our little minds when he announced the whole number scheme for "Star Wars," i.e. the first one is the fourth one and the fourth one is the first one and the sixth one is the third one and the third one is the last one. *BRAIN HEMMORRHAGE* Luckily, Peter Jackson has made things much more straightforward as he sets the nomenclature in stone for his "Lord of the Rings" prequel, "The Hobbit."
According to Variety, the two-part motion picture event will now be firstly titled "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" (opening Dec 14, 2012) and the second will be released as "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" (Dec 13, 2013). In a veritable pop-lit super-explosion, "Hobbit 1" will open directly against the film version of "Life of Pi," thus leaving book clubs across the country in a mental quandary even the most potent Tazo Organic Chai Tea couldn't unravel.
