I was tempted to think it had to do with the general accessibility of The Hobbit vs. LoTR, but, honestly, I think people just really like dwarves these days.
As far as I could see, though, there weren't many Dwarves in the movie at all - unless you mean those nearly-beardless, hoodless, too-handsome young men with their Hollywood-trope of a leader who so rudely ransacked Bilbo's pantries. But, having read the memoirs of this Mr. Baggins myself (translated into the English by a certain professor Tolkien - perhaps you've heard of him?), which deal extensively with Dwarves, I feel reasonably confident in asserting that those persons in the film were not Dwarves.

(Sorry. I didn't care for the film - can you tell?)
