(3) “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” Vs. (6) “The Perks of Being a Wallflower”
Ask and ye shall receive! After winning its way into the tournament via the Wild Card round, “Perks” proved its staying power by breaking all the way into the 16-film bracket. But does the Logan Lerman and Emma Watson-starring adaptation have enough power behind it to topple “The Hobbit,” Peter Jackson’s long awaited return to the world of Middle-earth? Fans have been waiting since the closing moments of “Return of the King” for the tale of Bilbo Baggins’ greatest adventure, and this year, it finally arrives. What chance does “Perks” stand against such a highly anticipated event? Well… this is the brawl for it all, folks. Surprises are bound to happen, and “The Hobbit” could very well become an unexpected casualty.
