The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: Look! Up in the air! Is that a… dragon?! Well, if you happen to be in the flightpath of an Air New Zealand jet airliner ("Airline of Middle-earth"), you might be forgiven for thinking you saw a dragon streaking through the air, but actually it's just a plane painted with a dragon to promote the upcoming opening of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in theaters; in the U.S., D-Day (Dragon Day, of course) is December 13.

Blackfish: An online petition asked the band Barenaked Ladies to cancel a planned concert at SeaWorld in 2014, encouraging them to watch the documentary Blackfish to learn more. Now the group has decided not to play the show, citing among other reasons: "We watch movies too, ya know!" The movie stirred up controversy earlier this year with its vivid documentation of the treatment of killer whales held in captivity at SeaWorld. [Facebook via The Hollywood Reporter]

Bad Asses Trailer: Danny Trejo is joined by Danny Glover -- in a green track suit! -- in the first trailer for Bad Asses, the sequel to Trejo's 2012 low-budget action movie. Trejo and Glover may both be senior citizens, but they're still perfectly capable of lobbing wisecracks and dispensing justice, as the trailer demonstrates. The movie is heading direct to the home video market next year. [Vulture]

Noah Trailer: A new international trailer for Darren Aronofsky's Noah reveals a fleeting look at new footage, but mostly is just another opportunity to revel in what looks like an epic movie in the making. Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Emma Watson, Ray Winstone and Anthony Hopkins star; the movie will flood theaters on March 28, 2014. [The Playlist]
