Third 'Hobbit' Film 'There and Back Again' Renamed to 'Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies'

The third The Hobbit film in the series has just undergone a name change from The Hobbit: There and Back Again to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies!

“When we did the premiere trip late last year, I had a quiet conversation with the studio about the idea of revisiting the title. We decided to keep an open mind until a cut of the film was ready to look at. We reached that point last week, and after viewing the movie, we all agreed there is now one title that feels completely appropriate,” director Peter Jackson wrote on his Facebook account. “And so: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies it is.”

“As Professor Tolkien intended, ‘There and Back Again’ encompasses Bilbo’s entire adventure, so don’t be surprised if you see it used on a future box-set of all three movies,” Peter added.

The third film stars Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Luke Evans, Richard Armitage, and many more.

Evangeline Lilly Eyed for Female Lead in Marvel's 'Ant-Man'!

Evangeline Lilly is in talks to star as the female lead in the upcoming Marvel film Ant-Man, according to Variety.

The film is already set to star Paul Rudd in the title role, as well as Michael Douglas and Michael Pena.

Some insiders believe she will be playing the daughter of Michael Douglas‘ character Pym and the love interest of Paul‘s character Scott Lang.

Evangeline Lilly: Men Stopped Talking to Me When I Got Famous!

Evangeline Lilly looks smart and chic in this new shot from her feature for DuJour magazine‘s January 2014 issue, on newsstands now!

Here is what the 34-year-old The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug actress had to share with the mag:

On people approaching her: “Once I became a public figure, that ended. Men stopped talking to me. Because they think, ‘Why would she want to date me?’ But the irony of it is, that’s exactly why you’d want to date them—everyone needs something to ground them in their life, and often for public figures, that’s their partner.”

On where she was in life before Lost: “When I got the job on Lost, I was a broke university student living in the crappiest part of town, with a duct-taped back window on a broken-down car. I existed on peanut butter and tea. When somebody said, ‘I will pay you a lot of money to come and do this,’ it was worth it to make the sacrifice for a certain amount of time in order to have the flexibility that comes from having more financial freedom.”’

On playing a non-Tolkien character in The Hobbit: “There are a lot of forums online where fans are furious. They’re venting that anger and expressing themselves, and I just feel like, more power to you—get out there and express your opinions… I’ve had people who have seen the film who have daughters thank me for being part of it, because otherwise their daughters would have had hours of cinema without a single female character onscreen. In 2013, that’s unacceptable.”
