Here is a preview of some of the most anticipated films that are due out later this year.

Dec. 14
The Hobbit
An Unexpected Journey – "Unexpected" doesn’t seem quite the right word for this film. We already know its story, derived from J.R.R. Tolkien’s novel; we’re familiar with many of the actors (and the director) from Lord of the Rings; we’ve heard that it’s being shot at 48 frames per second (twice the normal rate), and we can predict with assurance that it’ll be a blockbuster. And yet, suspense remains: how on Middle-Earth is Peter Jackson going to turn this book into a trilogy?

You Star Trek fans might be interested in this:

Star Trek: The Next Generation star Michael Dorn is developing a new spin-off sci-fi TV series about his Klingon character Captain Worf.

Dorn appeared as the Starfleet officer on The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, and now he's keen to return in a new show.

The actor tells, "I had come up with the idea because I love the character and I think he's a character that hasn't been fully developed and hasn't been fully realized.

Ever want to see what a guy with 2,100 needles in his head looks like?! Ah, then you are in luck, head on over to the Toronto Star for the picture.

The certificate for the 2011 spectacle arrived last week. He already has it framed but decided to break the record with a 48-hour needle-sticking extravaganza to raise money for cancer treatment.

Sivanayagam has vitiglio, a skin condition characterized by a loss of pigmentation, and he wanted to acknowledge the suffering of others with more critical problems.
