Surprised right? But I'll bet you didn't know that a brother, Christopher Judge, was in The Hobbit?

Most of you will be familiar with him from the hit TV sci-fi series Stargate SG-1, on which he was a regular for 10 years; and he's also appeared in dozens of TV and film roles over the past 22 years.

However, I have to confess that Im not talking about Peter Jackson's The Hobbit, but rather Joseph J. Lawson's Age of The Hobbits - a straight-to-DVD release, produced by The Asylum production company, and which is scheduled to be released tomorrow.

Well maybe not...

Turns out that today, a California federal judge granted Warner Bros' request to temporarily block the release of Age of the Hobbits, claiming that it will confuse film-goers with their $500 million, three-part The Hobbit series, the first installment of which opens this Friday.

The judge ruled that Warners had shown evidence of consumer association with their Hobbit, and though the studio "couldn't claim exclusive rights to the fantastical images of swords, mythical creatures and the like... one is immediately struck by the similarity... and that the slight difference in titles isn't enough to avoid confusion."

The judge has set a January 28th date to decide whether this temporary restriction becomes permanent, which if he does, would force The Asylum to make changes in their film, including, one presumes, the title of the film.  

Needless to say, it wasn't shot in 48fps.

In the meantime, at least, you can watch the trailer:
