The HobbitThe Desolation of Smaug

Academy Award winner Peter Jackson continues his Middle-earth adventure following Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) who’s swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. In the company of 13 dwarves and the wizard Gandalf the Grey (Ian McKellen), Bilbo enters the Lonely Mountain in possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring and his keen blade, Sting. With an all-star cast and the effects wizardry of Jackson’s award-winning Weta Workshop, Tolkien’s epic story comes to life as never before imagined.

Delivery Man


Underachiever David Wozniak (Vince Vaughn) leads a mundane, middle-aged life until he learns he’s actually an overachiever — he’s fathered 533 children via sperm donations made 20 years earlier! David soon embarks on an unexpected journey and discovers that the shock of his life might just be the best thing that’s ever happened to him. Along the way he discovers not only his true self, but also the father he could become. Also starring Chris Pratt and Cobie Smulders, it’s a feel-good movie that really delivers.

Available from 9th April in Australia to rent from AU$5.99 or buy from AU$24.99. Available in the UK from June.

What’s a video store?


they need to enable Streaming from their webpage on PC to make it relevant, that plus better URL names.

Nothing if you don’t live in the UK, the centre of Europe :P

Serious question but do people really buy videos from the store? £11.99 seams a lot for a digital download considering I bought a physical copy for £9.99 .


That £9.99 physical copy likely came with a digital copy included too.

Embarrassing pricing on the store.

T-thanks, I sure will. Oh wait…

Guys can you bring the option to download rentals to the PS4. I have Virgin Fibre Optic and my last broadband speed check 10 minutes ago came in at 99mbs. About 20 minutes in to the Hobbit and I am watching the 8-bit version. :/ I know it’s not my internet, my PS4 is connected via ethernet so I have all of my bases covered I just want to watch the HD film I rented in HD!

Has the The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug been made available. I cant find it in the PSN store.
