Both Orlando Bloom and Evangeline Lilly were all smiles as they appeared on the red carpet together last night for glitzy ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ premiere held at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood. These two will probably travel to numerous other cities around the globe for premieres before the film goes into wide-release on December 13. Check the film’s official website for more photos & trailers.
The hobbit Bilbo Baggins, along with the wizard Gandalf and the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield and his twelve companions, leave the Carrock after the events of the previous film. They continue east to the edge of the forest of Mirkwood where they encounter the skin-changer Beorn. Gandalf departs before the others enter Mirkwood where they are attacked by giant spiders and, except for Bilbo, are captured by Wood-elves. Bilbo helps the dwarves escape from the elves and they follow the forest river to Lake-town, where they meet the Master of the town, and Bard, a bowman and the descendant of the original Lord of Dale. After acquiring a boat and supplies from the town, the company travels to the Lonely Mountain. They eventually find the hidden door into the mountain and Bilbo enters and encounters the dragon Smaug.

Going into last night’s game everyone knew one thing: the Seattle Seahawks are a good team but when they’re at home, they’re an elite team. Probably the best in the entire league. It’s impossible to tell because they don’t go up against the Patriots or Broncos this season but at least we know they’re on top of the NFC without a shred out doubt. While completely dominating the Saints last night, Seattle also clinched a spot in the postseason during their most impressive win of the season. The final score was 34-7 and that was very indicative of how the game played out. From start to finish the Seahawks were doing what they wanted on offense and defense. If Seattle’s secondary was supposed to be depleted, no one told them and the Saints weren’t able to take advantage of it. Drew Brees started the game with a 3 and out, followed by a fumble that was returned for a TD by the home team. The Saints managed to score in the 2nd quarter but it took a nearly perfect drive to do so. Things continued to favor Seattle when the ball was switched to them on offense, led by an MVP-like performance from Russell Wilson. Normally the tough Seahawks running game leads the way but it’s the only thing the Saints defense was able to control, limiting Marshawn Lynch to only 45 yards. No matter. Wilson was picking up the slack left and right, looking every bit like a veteran QB who just saw this as any other regular season game. Once Seattle scored another TD just before the second half was over, the game felt all but over from that point on. So where does this leave these two teams heading forward?
The Saints are still on top of their division due to tie breakers but now they’re really feeling the heat from Carolina, making their game this week that much bigger. New Orleans also goes up against the Panthers two weeks after that so that could very well decide not only the second seed in the NFC but also the 5th seed in the playoffs. Or could the 49ers even sneak in and take the 5th seed? San Francisco is beginning to look really solid once again, getting healthier as the weeks go by. But their next opponent is Seattle, a team that only needs one more win to clinch the NFC West and home field advantage throughout the playoffs. There’s very little chance of Seattle losing three of their last four to allow another team to slip into first so every other team in the NFC better get used to the idea that the road to the Super Bowl is going through Seattle. Could the Niners make things a little interesting with a win on Sunday? Yes but after that it’s out of their hands. Then there are the East and North divisions. Right now the Cowboys and Lions lead their respective divisions but the Eagles and Bears are right on their heels. Hey, what do you know, those teams play each other this weekend. The Lions are in Philadelphia on Sunday and the Cowboys are in Chicago on Monday. Both divisions could very well come down to the final game of the season but we’ll learn plenty from the results of those two games. It’s time for the homestretch people.

While Evangeline Lilly also looked beautiful, Rose McIver definitely holds the honor of looking the sexiest at last night’s red carpet premiere held in Los Angeles for ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’. If you like what you see, you can catch more of Rose in the Showtime’s new series ‘Masters of Sex‘ which premiered back in September. It appears things are going well for the series since it was recently renewed for a second season set to air in 2014.
Here’s the trailer that ran ahead of the series premiere in late September:
Zoe Saldana appeared on Extra doing an interview with the bootylicious Maria Menounos. Zoe’s got a new film coming out, appearing in Out of the Furnace starring a cast that includes Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, and Forest Whitaker. Look for it in wide-release this Friday, December 6th. Keep up-to-date with the latest information at Out of the Furnace on Facebook.
Russell Baze (Bale) and his younger brother Rodney Jr. (Affleck) live in the economically-depressed Rust Belt, and have always dreamed of escaping and finding better lives. But when a cruel twist of fate lands Russell in prison, his brother is lured into one of the most violent and ruthless crime rings in the Northeast – a mistake that will almost cost him everything. Once released, Russell must choose between his own freedom, or risk it all to seek justice for his brother. [Wiki]
Pictured: Suki Waterhouse, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Lily Donaldson
Wow, what the hell are those pants that Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s wearing?! Normally this woman kills it with every appearance, regardless of whether she’s walking around with baldy or on the red carpet, although we gotta give Rosie extra-credit points for braless.
With respect to Bradley Cooper’s play-thing, Suki Waterhouse, I think it’s safe to say that she looked downright sexy in that dress! The 21-year-old’s Hollywood actor boyfriend was nowhere to be seen.
And finally, we have 26-year-old Victoria’s Secret model Lily Donaldson. If we had to chose from the supermodel lineup, Lily would be our girl! Who’s yours?
