Third Hobbit Film Gets Title, Release Date

Warner Bros and New Line of have announced the new title and release date for the third The Hobbit film. As expected, the last film in the trilogy will keep the "There and Back Again" subtitle with a July 18, 2014 release date. The second film will now be called The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Other possible sub-titles had been Riddles in the Dark and Battle of Five Armies but neither title fit where the likely breaks will occur for each film. This does indicate that much of the second film will focus on the journey to Smaug's cave and the fight with Laketown. The third film will go from those events to build up and then depict The Battle of Five Armies which was completely skipped over in the novel as Bilbo was knocked out at the time.
