    Same reason TTT might......it was released in the winter months ( a slow time for hollywood, filled exclusively with crap) and had no big budget competition.

    Still, it's doubtful that TTT will crack a billion worldwide.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant next to the power of 8-18 year old girls who have a crush collectively on a young male star. That is why New Kids on the Block eclipsed Beatles record sales, and why Titanic was what it was. Its crossover appeal helped too, because the 1.5 hours of schlock was followed by 1.5 hours of the greatest disaster flick ever which brought the likes of me in to see it.

    This was in my recent issue of Request magazine. Apperantly, if New Line decides to do "The Hobbit", Peter Jackson would find it hard to not offer himself to direct.

    Director Peter Jackson Looks To Break The Hobbit

    Peter Jackson may have delivered another stunning masterpiece wih The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, but the New Zealand director's not necessarily going to make hobbits a habit. Asked whether he's intrested in adapting The Hobbit after the final film in his Lord of the Rings trilogy is released in December, Jackson insisted that he and New Line Cinema have not discussed the possibility. "I don't know if I'd do it." Jackson says, "but I'd feel sort of weird not doing it if they decide to make it." Hear that, New Line?

    They'd definatleyt cut out all of the songs. Which would be a shame, but who wants to hear Ian Holm sing?

    I read that Ian McKellan said he would love to do it as a year long television series (mini series?) with PJ executive producing.

    I think that would be sweet!

    Yeah that would be great . I hope something is done to transfer the Hobbit to TV/Cinema.

    OK, I haven't read the hobbit in ages, so someone refresh my memory...

    Does Aragorn appear in the book? My gut says no, as I don;t even think he was born when Bilbo got hold of the ring.....but...it's all fuzzy.

    According to the apendices in LOTR, Aragorn is well over a hundred by the time the Fellowship is formed (something about humans back then...they lived longer, the blood of Numenore and all that) so he alive when Bilbo fought Smaug, etc, but he wasn't in the book.
