The Hobbit Trailer Is Here!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has dropped what has to be one of the most anticipated trailers in recent history.

The big moment when moviegoers make their long-awaited return to Middle Earth is still far on the horizon when this first of the two-part epic hits December 14, 2012. However, it will be spectacular trailers like this one that can easily hold fans over until that day.

Indeed, it is safe to say that it lives up to the incalculable expectations that have been brewing with fans over the years.

No more talking, it's time to finally see for yourself below!

Cosplayers rejoice, because someone has created a functional mask based on Rorschach's costume from The Watchmen! Now, you too can look like a noir, comic book badass. Your Comic-Con experience is going to rock so hard next year!

When you saw the first Spider-Man movie, were you bummed out that The Green Goblin looked almost nothing like his comic book counterpart? If so, you're going to be even more depressed after seeing this rejected makeup test for the pumpkin bomb-hurling maniac that looks exactly like what legendary artist Steve Ditko first put to paper back in 1964. Why the people responsible for the film went with an emotionless mask instead of this, we'll never know, but it's still cool to think about how much better the movie would have been with a villain who could actually emote.

Thor: The First Official Trailer Has Hit

Thor 2 will apparently be moving forward without its previously-appointed director, Patty Jenkins.

Citing "creative differences" the Monster director has dropped out of the project, leaving a huge vacancy for the sequel to this past summer's $448 million surprise superhero mega-hit.

With a November 15, 2013 release date looming, the studio will need to work extremely quick to find Jenkins' replacement. In the unique timeframe of big-budget Hollywood films they must make sure there is plenty of time for conceptual staging, especially considering that some effects shots alone may take that long to produce.

Where does this leave Thor 2?

The Amazing Spider-Man: First Look At The Lizard?

Next Summer's franchise reboot, The Amazing Spider-Man has been making efforts to keep the look of the film's villain under wraps for some time, now. However, the proverbial reptile may have been let out of its cage, thanks to a leaked photo of some swag.

Yogurt of Spaceballs might have said that merchandising is "where the real momney from the movie is made," but it appears it may have also unwittingly given us our first look at Rhys Ifans as Doctor Curt Connors as he is transformed into the A-list Spider-Man villain, The Lizard!

The swag? A pair of Pez Dispensers which were found by Jared Campbell, showing up on ComicBookMovie.

Is this the villain we're getting? Or is this some bizarre foreign knockoff?

Doctor Who Movie Gets Harry Potter Director

It appears that long held rumors of Doctor Who coming to the big screen are about to come true.

Reports indicate that The BBC will be working with Harry Potter director, David Yates, who has been tapped to helm the Time Lord's theatrical debut film. However, there's a catch. -- It won't star any version of the Doctor that we know.

That's right, current Doctor, Matt Smith and even the last one, David Tennant will be benched for the nearly fifty year-old franchise's big film debut. The search, therefore, is on for what will go down in the record books as the Twelfth Doctor, all while Smith, the Eleventh Doctor will remain on the television series.

Did the TARDIS just experience the worst temporal error in history? What's going to happen with the franchise?
