    Default The hobbit

    It would appear the original thread is lost...if not, apologies.



    Peter Jackson's latest vid makes us want to see that 3-D Hobbit NOW | Blastr

    Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit director Peter Jackson has just made a new thrilling production video available to all of us Middle-earth fans. This time, we're being plunged into the world of 3-D, and we get to see those dwarves and hobbits in action.

    The fourth production video blog Jackson recently made available on his Facebook page mainly concentrates on the intricacies of filming in HD 3-D with about four dozen RED Epic cameras, which, as you'll see for yourselves, Jackson has all named—yes, named—after family members, pets and even the Beatles.

    Peter Jackson says shooting The Hobbit in 3-D is ''a dream come true,'' and we learn that the Oscar-winning director would have filmed LOTR in 3-D if the same technology had been available back when he set out to film his masterpiece more than 12 years ago.

    The very interesting (if fairly technical) production blog also features some nifty behind-the-scenes footage (while filming was taking place on a soundstage) and a look at some very cool scenes taken straight from the Tolkien book—namely something that happens in the very sinister Mirkwood forest (cocoons and spider webs, everyone!).

    We also get to see Gandalf (Sir Ian McKellen), Bilbo (Martin Freeman), Elrond (Hugo Weaving), Frodo (Elijah Wood) and the company of dwarves led by Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage) in action; sprinkled with a few wood elves, more of Bag End, and is that Rivendell we spy?

    Another really cool part of Jackson's production video blog is to see renowned Tolkien illustrators Alan Lee and John Howe—who are once again providing all the amazing art for the film—realizing some pretty cool 3-D illustrations. If you've got some 3-D glasses tucked away somewhere, you should run and get them to see the awesome 3-D effect of one of their drawings (we should rather say TWO drawings).

    Well, that isn't stopping George Lucas Pelucas from turning the Star Wars movies into 3D.

    Anyways, how much more do we have to wait for The Hobbit movie? *Sigh*

    I'm a little obsessed with the production videos and that last video was really awesome. I'm bummed I don't have any 3-D glasses lying around to check out those drawings though.

    I have yet to meet one person who thinks 3D actually enhances their movie experience. Will this dumb gimmick ever go away? I don't want to sit for two hours with a pair of tinted glasses on top of my regular glasses, straining to keep my eyes focused the whole time just for that one clearly-made-for-3D scene.

    Whatever. Still excited about The Hobbit though. Looks good.

    Stupid question, but when did Jackson get back on the project? Was there a settlement between him & New Line?

    When we saw Harold & Kumar we had these X-treme model 3d glasses. They were tight set for someone who doesn't wear glasses...not sure how someone w/glasses could even cope. Luckily, I am sure that you will have ample opportunity to choose a standard viewing over 3d.

    Benedict Cumberbatch Talks About Playing Smaug in THE HOBBIT

    very interesting.

    Cumberbatch talked about his approach to Smaug, who he’s not only voicing but will also be physicalizing through the use of motion-capture. While he doesn’t head down to New Zealand until January, Cumberbatch talked about how he’s preparing for the character and how excited he is to join the production. Hit the jump to check out the interview.
