The Hobbit: There And Back Again has been pushed back to December 2014

Quick, but important news here.

According to Deadline, THE HOBBIT: THERE AND BACK AGAIN has been pushed back from the initial June 18, 2014 date to December 17, 2014. Yay! Christmas present!

I find it sort of fitting that THE HOBBIT: DESOLATION OF SMAUG and THERE AND BACK again will both be released in December. Obviously not a Christmas movie, but something about them releasing in Winter is kind of nice. I have some friends that actually rotate LOTR in with the rest of their month of December essential viewings. Plus, I think that if any movie is going to get me out so close to the holidays, it's going to have to involve Hobbits, Gandalf and that sexy Thorin Oakenshield.

Moving it back also gives the Peter Jackson a decent cushion of time to get everything how he wants it. I really enjoyed AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY, although I was not a fan of the 48 fps. I know, I know, I'm not the only one, but I don't think it ruined my experience.

Excited to see THE HOBBIT: DESOLATION OF SMAUG when it hits theaters on December 13, 2013.

LOVED 48fps!!

I really hope the rest of series will be 48fps format...the first 15 mins of the movie I thought that I was going to leave and watch the non 3d version but as I kept viewing I strangely got used to it, its a different experience, then I really really enjoyed it. I felt as if 3D had finally done what it was supposed to, wow me!! bring me in the picture. Cameron should had done this when Avatar came out. That one I didn't care for that much, esp. that god awful 3D...

I'm fine with this! Only bummer is I have to wait a little while longer for the extended boxset

YES!!!!!! Another Christmas present!!!!!!

"The Lord of The Rings" and "The Hobbit" are meant to be Christmas releases, not summer. Getting these films at Christmas is a Christmas present all on it's own. Thank you for the great news!!!!!!!

This is great news. As everyone said below, December is a perfect time for these films. It's so nice to be whisked away to Middle-earth during the winter, especially because many families and friends are together at that time of year.

Perfect!

I was never happy about The Hobbit coming out in June. LOTR films should always come out at the end of the year. Something about the holidays and Christmas and that season just fits. Good move!

Probably for the best

I'm a bit disappointing since I was looking forward to the shorter wait time between the 2nd and 3rd movies, but if this means the final product will be better, then I'm all for it. It's no secret that, while it's very close to making $1 billion worldwide, the first Hobbit movie was extremely underwhelming and disappointing, bordering on just plain bad. Many of the problems, such as the bad CGI, can probably be blamed on a rushed schedule, so hopefully this move will pay off. I'm just hoping

The Hobbit wants to avoid competition with X-Men! That`s cool, I was expecting that X change date to avoid Hobbit.

Yeah December should be Middle Earth month!! Although I hope Desolation of Smaug is awesome because I was a touch let down by Unexpected Journey. I didn't quite feel the magic that I felt with the 3 LOTR films.

Couldn't agree more

Some things just work more at certain times of the month. Hobbit/LOTR just seems to fit perfectly in december. Narnia had the same thing going for it with the first one, then tried for a summer release with Prince Caspian and although it made a lot of money, It began the downfall of the franchise.

Yeah, the downfall of the franchise had nothing to do with the movies sucking.
