First Look at Oin and Gloin from Peter Jackson’s THE HOBBIT

     July 8, 2011


Yesterday, we showed the first image of Dori, Ori, and Nori from Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit.  Today, we’re getting a look at fellow dwarves Oin (John Callen) and Gloin (Peter Hambleton).  As you can see, dwarves certainly enjoy their battle axes and styling their facial hair.  As a little background, Gloin is Gimli’s father and Oin is Gloin’s brother (are you starting to get a sense of how dwarven families name their kids?).  Like all dwarves in The Hobbit, they accompany a young Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) on the Quest of Erebor on which Bilbo found The One Ring and encountered Gollum and the dragon Smaug.

Hit the jump to check out the image.  The film also stars Ian McKellen, James Nesbitt, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, and Andy Serkis.  The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will be released on December 14, 2012.  The Hobbit: There and Back Again will hit theaters on December 13, 2013.  Both movies will be in 3D.

Here’s the synopsis for J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit:

Bilbo Baggins, the hobbit, is a peaceful sort of cozy hole in the Shire, a place where adventures are uncommon and rather unwanted. So when the wizard Gandalf whisks him away on a treasure hunting expedition with a troop of rowdy dwarves, he’s not entirely thrilled. Encountering ruthless trolls, beastly orcs, gigantic spiders, and hungry wolves, Bilbo discovers within himself astonishing strength and courage. And at the ultimate confrontation with the fearsome dragon Smaug, the hobbit will brave the dangers of dark and dragon fire alone and unaided. [Amazon]
