The third "Hobbit" film to be released July 2014

Post The third "Hobbit" film to be released July 2014
It has been confirmed part 3 of "The Hobbit" will be released July 2014. Now consider the fact part 1 and 2 will be released December 2012 and December 2013. Also consider the fact the three LOTR releases each had a December release.

I'm wondering why have the last film come out during July instead of Decemeber? Is this to attempt to slay the summer competition? I've never considered the LOTR films to be summer blockbuster types of films. It just feels weird to me to have all these films come out in December and have the last one come out in July.

Well, considering that the Lord of the Rings films were all released in December, it would be normal to think that.

You're hanging on the word "summer" too much. If you don't think those movies are blockbuster, then I'm not really sure what to tell you.

LotR = big-budget adventure movies. Lots of famous people in them, heavily promoted, made lots of money, etc.

They're blockbusters.

Logically, in order for an "and" statement to be true, both parts must be true.

In order for an "or" statement to be true, only one part must be true.

Generally, the term "summer blockbuster" can be interpreted in the form of an "and" statement, therefore in order to be a summer blockbuster a film must be both a blockbuster and released during a time of year that can reasonably considered summer.

However, the southern and northern hemispheres do not experience summer at the same time. Therefore the LotR trilogies are summer blockbusters if and only if one lives in the southern hemisphere.

As for the prequel trilogy (assuming that the release schedule of December - December - July is followed) The LotR series will continue its fine tradition of being southern hemisphere summer blockbusters up until part three is released, where it will become merely a winter blockbuster.

Not really a surprise, but I was looking forward to a shorter wait between films for once. :ugeek:
