We’re nearing Hobbit Day—the birthday of J.R.R. Tolkien’s beloved heroes, Bilbo and Frodo Baggins. I also happen to be a few months away from celebrating my own Hobbit Birthday, 33 and a third years young. So, I foolishly thought: I’ve avoided watching Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit movies until now, maybe it’s time I…
Last month, Martin Freeman said that making Sherlock for the BBC wasn’t enjoyable anymore, in large part due to the fans. Apparently, Benedict Cumberbatch, the show’s eponymous detective, thinks otherwise.
Nearly five years ago, we had our hearts broken by Ben Howling and Yolanda Ramke’s touching take on the zombie genre in the short film Cargo. Now, it’s becoming a full-length film with Martin Freeman in the title role, and is set to get us all teary-eyed once more.

We’ve known for a while that Sherlock’s upcoming special would be set in Victorian London, but man, even we weren’t expecting this much 19th Century love-in goodness. Carriages! Deerstalkers! John Watson’s amazingly fantastic moustache! This is certainly a trailer that has all of those things.
Another day, another character added to Captain America: Civil War. It won’t shock you — or it shouldn’t — that Emily VanCamp will return to the movie as Sharon Carter, a.k.a. Agent 13, the age-appropriate love interest/relative of Agent Peggy. As for who Martin Freeman’s playing, well, that’s a bit more intriguing...
Captain America: Civil War just got even more crowded. Martin Freeman (The Hobbit, Sherlock) has just joined the Marvel universe in an unnamed role. Could he be Spider-Man? Of course not, although that would be hilarious.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman couldn't attend the Sherlock panel at Comic-Con, but they were able to send a video message in their place. Freeman just gives a pleasant hello, but Cumberbatch decides to reveal the secret of how Sherlock survived his seemingly deadly fall in the season 2 finale... kind of.
Martin Freeman had some hairy prosthetic feet to fill as Bilbo in Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, but the acclaimed actor was up to the challenge. We sat down in an exclusive interview and quizzed Freeman about filming the much-anticipated trilogy, his life in Middle-Earth, and, most importantly, his thoughts on…
We saw about a dozen and a half minutes of clips from the Hobbit, both the first and second movies. Plus a lengthy new behind-the-scenes featurette.
