The Hobbit

Flying my geek flag, I confess to being a fan of Tolkien. I have read The Hobbit, The Lord of The Rings (more than once), and tried to read the Silmarillion. I liked Peter Jackson’s movie adaptation. Now there is a trailer for Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit. Clearly filmed at the same time Filmed in the same style as the Lord of The Rings, this goes on my must see list. Full screen HD available, if you like.

Update: edited at the strikethrough.

  1. I don't think that the trailer was filmed at the same time as Lord of the Rings, as there wasn't even a contract for The Hobbit at that point, and Peter Jackson wasn't on board as director at that point, either. Some cutting-room floor footage (the scene of Ian Holm early in the trailer) may be left over from LOTR, but none of the Hobbit actors were cast at that point (it was ten years ago, remember).

    Give The Silmarillion another try. It's well worth the effort.

    Thanks for posting it.

  2. Bob's right on the money. This hasn't been made/filmed until the last few years. There were a lot of delays, but all the footage is new. All of the actors you see from the old movies are returning.

  3. I was more of a sci-fi than a fantasy type: Arthur C. Clarke, Issac Asimov, Robert Heinlein, and all. Never read the LOTR books or the Hobbit, but count me in for it. I saw the LOTR movies and Jackson has an amazing eye.

    Wait – December 2012? Isn't that the end of the world? 😀
