British actor/comedian Stephen Fry is The Master of your ‘Hobbit’ domain.
Lee Pace and Dean O’Gorman are being fitted for chainmail as I type.
"Lord of the Rings" quotes cover all three of Peter Jackson's brilliant films: "The Fellowship of the Ring," "The Two Towers" and "The Return of the King." Naturally, most of…
Where are they going to find a dwarf on such short notice?
Producers are going to save money by not putting Martin Freeman in old person make-up.
It’s a great way for you to check up on ‘The Hobbit’, to make sure everything’s going OK.
In his epic quest to cure 3D headachyness and do a crazy technology thing, Jackson has opted to shoot ‘The Hobbit’ at 48 frames per second, rather than the good ol’ fashioned 24.
So now the actors won’t have to improvise all their lines.
At his latest press junket, he gave good indications that Peter Jackson wants Legolas back.
Do you think he’ll take off the mo-cap suit while directing?
Bret McKenzie is playing the elf of choice for people who aren’t into mainstream elves like Turgon (so overrated).
If he’s not too busy that is…
New set photos show Peter Jackson slightly larger than a hobbit.
‘Hobbit’ set preview: Gandalf The Well-Bearded had some kind words for the third, headache inducing dimension, as well as leading man Martin Freeman.
J.R.R. Tolkein fans expect more naming bang for their buck with Peter Jackson’s upcoming epic two-parter, ‘The Hobbit’. Two names may rule us all, but what’ll those sub-headers be?
A nice press conference photo before they spend every day of next year wearing heavy robes, caked in pounds of make-up, sweat and their own tears.
The Hobbit plans to begin shooting in March, if God allows it.
Saoirse Ronan has been confirmed to join the cast of The Hobbit, though the her role hasn’t been specified.
Looks like Peter Jackson won’t be Hobbiting just yet. Production on the Lord Of The Rings prequel has been delayed due to Jackson’s stomach trying to kill him.
Ian McKellen was very close to not reprising the role of Gandalf in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit films. His reasoning? All old British dudes are pretty much the same.
Andy Serkis should just live in his mo-cap suit from now on. The actor has agreed to once again put a ring on it to reprise the role of Gollum in The Hobbit.
TheOneRing.net is confirming that Wood will reprise his role as Frodo. If that site was confirming something about the female anatomy, I’d be a little more skeptical. But with a URL like that, I’m assuming they know what the hell they are talking about when it comes to Hobbits.
Peter Jackson already nabbed Cate Blanchett to reprise her role as Galadriel in The Hobbit, and now he’s about to land himself another pretty little elf. Orlando Bloom is in talks to return as the wispy-haired archer Legolas.
First of all, let’s recognize that Galadriel does indeed totally look like Spaghetti Cat. Second of all, Cate Blanchett is returning as Spaghetti Cat in Peter Jackson’s multi-racial The Hobbit. Galadriel! I mean Galadriel.
Some doings transpiring on The Hobbit. First, they’ll shoot that sucker in 3D. Second, black actors shall be allowed to pass.
Despite the fact that production for Peter Jackson’s two-part prequel, The Hobbit, is now under way, there has been no confirmation that the actor will reprise his iconic role. However, a recently updated page on McKellen’s official website seems to indicate that he will be appearing in the film.
"Don't look, don't look, don't look."
James Nesbitt has joined Peter Jackson's big screen adaptation of The Hobbit. Unless you're British, you're probably all like, "who?" He has starred in Danny Boyle's Millions, an awesome family film that doesn't feel family-ish, and Waking Ned Devine, a movie some critics refer to as a "gem." Nesbitt will play Bofur, “a disarmingly forthright, funny and occasionally brave Dwarf.”
With The Hobbit going into production and one trillion Snow White stories in development, Dwarfs are in high demand lately. Too bad they're getting normal-sized actors to play them instead of midgets. I apologize. I didn't mean to be insensitive. Not "normal-sized," just normal. (Deadline)
Over the weekend we got c*ck-teased with snippets of images from a first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever. Now Empire has officially unbuttoned its blouse and unleashed the goods. We have three honest-to-goodness official images.
Jamie Bell plays Tintin and Snowy his dog is played by…not Andy Serkis! Haha! Gotchu! You totally thought that since it was a mo-cap animal it HAD to be Andy Serkis. He's not in every mo-cap movie, ya know? But he is in this one, as Captain Haddock. You couldn't keep that guy away from a unitard with diodes on it if you tried.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn: Longest Title Ever doesn't come out until next Christmas, so check out the pics after the jump to get a taste.
Here's something special for fans of slow torture. Empire has the first look at Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson's joint effort The Adventures Of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. And they're revealing it really effing slowly. The plan is to release a full image of Peter Jackson and WETA's postwork this week, but in the meantime, snippets of the image are being teased every few hours.
Currently, ten of twelve close-up images have been revealed but they give you a good idea of what the film's texture and realism. So, if you've ever wanted to see Tintin's Adam's Apple up close in an ornate frame, brother, I've got a treat for you.
Check out the first look(s) after the jump…
New Zealand’s national nightmare is finally over! After day-long negotiations with government leaders, Warner Bros. has agreed to keep the island nation as the filming location for Peter Jackson's upcoming production of The Hobbit. Earlier this year, when a dispute arose with local unions, the studio threatened to abandon New Zealand as a shooting location. But this latest deal, which included millions of dollars in concessions for Warner Bros., will ensure the $500 billion project stays put.
I, for one, am totally relieved now that a compromise has been reached. Since the original Lord of the Rings trilogy was shot in New Zealand, moving the prequel’s production to Eastern Europe would have been a disaster. The trees in the background would have been completely different! Does Warner Bros. think we can’t tell the difference between a Rimu in New Zealand and a Common Oak or Black Alder tree in Poland? Well they are complete fools if they do think that! Fools, I tell you! (Deadline)
