A small-town hobbit faces larger-than-life challenges in "The Desolation of Smaug," as director Peter Jackson intensifies the action in the second installment of fantasy film "The Hobbit," expected to be one of the biggest blockbusters of the year. "Desolation of Smaug," out in U.S. theaters on Friday, picks up the tale of "The Hobbit" as Bilbo Baggins and the band of 13 dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield make their way across treacherous terrain on their quest to the Lonely Mountain, currently guarded by a fire-breathing dragon, Smaug. But his possession of the mysterious ring he stole from Gollum's cave in the first installment - the same ring that leads to an epic saga in the "Lord of the Rings" trilogy - is taking a hold on his soul. I think that confuses him and troubles him that he has this strong feeling of a trinket," British actor Martin Freeman, who plays the hobbit in the live-action 3D film, told Reuters.

Barnes & Noble (BKS) chairman Len Riggio says his sale yesterday of two million shares of the company's stock near a 52-week low shouldn't be interpreted as a sign that he has lost confidence in the bookseller, which sustained a sizable loss in its latest fiscal year due to setbacks at its Nook e-reader division. "I'm still very bullish about the company," Riggio told Barrons.com today. "I'm a major shareholder and a long-term holder." The Riggio sale depressed the shares yesterday (Tuesday), although they have recovered today after initially opening lower. Riggio sold the two million shares at $13.81 yesterday in what apparently was a block trade to Morgan Stanley, which then reoffered the stock to institutional investors above $14.
