The Hobbit

I'm thinking audiences are getting tired of all the superhero movie releases, making The Hobbit seem fresh and bring up good previous experiences with the LOTR trilogy.

The Dark Knight Rises.

The Hobbit will do great, but without the ''Lord of the Ring'' name in front, it wont do as much, most ppl doesnt know anything about it. For example, my dad LOVED lord of the ring, he has no clue what the hell the hobbit is, he never heard of it. The fact that its in 3d might bring more money but i dont think it will be enough to beat the dark knight rises. The 2nd batman was awsome and everyone loved it. Around me everyone is hyped about it, even my mom is interested! Meanwhile the only ppl i see that are hyped about the hobit are the ''geeks'' who heard about the movie on the Internet. Also i expect the first hobbit movie to be like the first lord of the ring, a rly long snorefest with almost no action.

I also think the avengers will do good, I even think it will come 2nd to batman3 because every marvel movies no matter how great or awfull they are they usualy always do great. All they need is put ironman on theyr marketting all the time and some captain america and they are destined to succeed.

On a side note, I rly rly hope that spiderman will bomb. I'm still bitter about them rebooting the franchise so soon. Makes me feel like they take the viewers like morons who are always rdy to throw their money at them.

The Hobbit is one the best selling books of all time. 



I was walking down along the street and I heard this voice saying, "Good evening, Mr. Dowd." Well, I turned around and here was this big six-foot rabbit leaning up against a lamp-post. Well, I thought nothing of that because when you've lived in a town as long as I've lived in this one, you get used to the fact that everybody knows your name.

The hobbit.
I've been bored of Batman and super hero movies in general for a while now. It's the 8th batman movie. The hobbit was one of my favorite books during childhood, can't wait to see how it turns out.



Domestic: The Dark Knight Rises (~$575 million)

What indication is there to suggest that?  Thor, Captain America, and X-Men: First Class all performed well at the boxoffice in 2011.  TDKR and The Avengers are arguably the two most anticipated superhero movies of all time.
