martin freeman wins best hero at mtv movie awards

Cue the heroic music!

Martin Freeman won over the fans and took home the trophy for Best Hero at the MTV Movie Awards for his SUPER performance as Bilbo Baggins in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!

It was a bit of an upset considering he was up against Christian Bale, Mark Ruffalo, Robert Downey Jr., and Anne Hathaway in a STACKED field, but the voters went with the little dude!

Who knew such a small guy would be able to take down Batman, The Hulk, Iron Man, AND Catwoman??! Pretty impressive for a hobbit!

Way to go, Bilbo!

Tom Cruise And Judd Apatow Tackled By The Hobbit In The Weekend Box Office!

the-hobbit-number-one-weekend-box-office-jack-reacher-this-is-40

Tom Cruise may be taller than a hobbit - not by much, mind you - but this weekend, our friends from Middle Earth towered above the A-list star…in the weekend box office!

After having the largest-ever December debut, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey continued strong for the second time, making an estimated $36.7 million between Friday and Sunday!

And THAT, friends, brings their domestic total to $150 million!

Jack Reacher, meanwhile, came in second with only $15.6 million…and Paul Rudd's This Is 40 followed close by with $12 million, making it the smallest-ever Judd Apatow-directed debut!

YEESH!

But honestly, what could they have expected?

Peter Jackson's adaptations of J.R.R. Tolkien is a STAPLE for the holiday season, after all!

Ch-ch-check out the rest of the box office top ten…AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Filed under: Film FlickersBusiness BlitzBookz

the-hobbit-an-unexpected-journey-largest-ever-december-domestic-box-office-debut

That's right, folks!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey has beat out Avatar!

Peter Jackson's newest adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic debuted this weekend to an estimated $84.8 MILLION weekend box office, which secures it above the James Cameron sci-fi extravaganza as the largest ever domestic debut for a film released in December!

Oh, and with the $138.2 million it made overseas, the flick has made a combined $223 MILLION worldwide!

Holy SHIZ! Way to go, Gandalf!

Or perhaps we should be congratulating the much-criticized high-frame-rate format in which the film was shot, as IMAX theaters playing the film in such averaged $44,000 per screen while regular screens made $31,000!

Either way, they can only go UP from here on out!

You. Shall not. Pass.

Seriously, Sir Ian McKellen, you're too darn friendly and talented and charming and totally awesome as Gandalf the Grey to ever pass!

The 73 year-old British icon revealed sad news recently: he has prostate cancer!

And the X-Men/Lord of the Rings has battled it for the better part of a decade!

Thankfully, the man is a trooper and he wont let the terrifying C-word get him down!

Stephen Colbert On Denny's Hobbit Themed Menu

Filed under: Film FlickersStephen ColbertFoodFast Food

Stephen Colbert is doing a Hobbit Week, celebrating the upcoming movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.

When Colbert does something, he really reallllly gets into it.

He even got his own Ring of Power, the One Ring! (To rule them all!)

He's so funny!

He seemed really excited to have Andy Serkis as a guest on his show since Andy plays Gollum.

Though he seemed more interested in talking about Denny's and their Hobbit-themed menu! Ha!

Check out the video (above) to hear Stephen's take on Denny's Hobbit menu.

Evangeline Lilly Debuts A Shaggy New 'Do At The Hobbit Premiere

evangeline lilly the hobbit new zealand premiere

Or is it a don't?

Evangeline Lilly was unrecognizable at The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey premiere in Wellington, New Zealand on Tuesday.

For some inexplicable reason, her beautiful long brown locks had been chopped off and replaced with a dirty mop highlighted shaggy cut.

The blonde streaks looked like they’d been applied by a beauty school dropout or at the very least an ex-boy band hairstylist.

But seriously, this is a great look…from the neck down!

In a very smart move, the actress wore a shimmery pink mini dress that took some of the attention off her not so cute 'do.

What do U think of Evangeline's new look? Awesome or hair-rendous???
