THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG

PETER JACKSON (Director/Producer/Screenwriter) is one of the world's most successful filmmakers. His monumental achievement was "The Lord of the Rings" Trilogy, which he directed, as well as co-wrote and produced together with fellow Academy Award winners and frequent collaborators Fran Walsh and Philippa Boyens. Collectively, the films earned a total of 30 Academy Award nominations, winning 17 Academy Awards, including Best Picture for the final film. Jackson and Walsh had received their first Oscar nomination for Best Original Screenplay for their acclaimed film "Heavenly Creatures."

Jackson once again plunged into the world of Middle-earth to direct, co-write and produce a trilogy of films adapting the enduringly popular masterpiece The Hobbit, by J.R.R. Tolkien. The first film in "The Hobbit" Trilogy, "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey," was released in 2012 and earned over $1 billion worldwide and three Academy Award nominations.

Jackson, through his New Zealand-based WingNut Films banner, also was responsible for the globally successful 2005 remake of "King Kong," which earned over $500 million worldwide and three Academy Awards. Jackson more recently directed the Academy Award-nominated "The Lovely Bones," an adaptation of the acclaimed best-selling novel by Alice Sebold, and produced the global sensation "District 9," which received an Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.

Jackson also produced, with Steven Spielberg and Kathleen Kennedy, "The Adventures of Tintin," which was directed by Spielberg. The film won, amongst many other awards and nominations, the Golden Globe for Best Animated Feature and the Producers Guild of America Award for Animated Motion Picture Producers of the Year. The movie is the first of three, based on the world-renowned comic book series by Herge, and Jackson will direct the second film in the trilogy.

In 2010, he received a knighthood for his services to film.
