Gollum at Welling Airport in New Zealand

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: Wellington Airport in New Zealand is now home to a newly installed exhibit inspired by Peter Jackson’s adapation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. The giant-sized model of Gollum fishing for dinner was created by Weta and is located in the airport’s main lounge. The movie opens December 14. [Screenslam and TheOneRing.net via First Showing]

Adam Sandler: His last live-action movie, That’s My Boy, was a box office disappointment, but Adam Sandler has made so many movies that have made so much money that one flop won’t stop him. His next project, Ridiculous 6, will be a comedy Western -- and that’s all that Paramount is willing to confirm at this point. Sandler will cowrite the script; the film is already set for release for “spring-break weekend” in 2014, though no specific date was offered. [Deadline]

Al Pacino on Broadway: The prospect of an actor earning more than $1 million for a starring role sounds like a bargain for a major motion picture, but the economics of Broadway are quite different. Thus, Al Pacino’s contract for a minimum of $125,000 per week to star in a revival of David Mamet’s Glengarry Glenn Ross is reportedly one of the biggest pay packages for a Broadway star ever. Pacino is contracted to play the role for 10 weeks, and is entitled to share in the profits, if any. The play is currently in previews and will open on November 11. [Bloomberg]

UFO Trailer: Jean-Claude Van Damme is the most recognizable actor in the upcoming British independent sci-fi flick UFO, but that’s OK, because the first trailer puts the emphasis on the fear and tension that arises when aliens are on the brink of invading Earth. [Hey U Guys]
