The film studios behind The Hobbit films are suing low-budget company The Asylum for trademark infringement, over its new film Age of the Hobbits.

Warner Brothers, New Line Cinema, MGM and The Hobbit producer Saul Zaentz want to stop them using the word Hobbit in the title of the "knockoff film".

They claim The Asylum is "free-riding" on the worldwide promotional campaign for Peter Jackson's forthcoming films.

The company is behind a string of "mockbusters" inspired by hit movies.
