    These are beautiful and tell the story of the characters themselves. The only real weak one is Bilbo.

      Judging by this and the trailers, I’m worried Bible was horribly miscast. What was needed here was a theatrically trained actor, not a guy best known for his work on a sitcom. He’s simply too wooden and, well, himself in everything he does to fit into a world such as Middle Earth.

      P.S. Believe it or not I am a huge fan of The Office, his films with Simon Pegg, Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, Sherlock, etc. I’m just more honest than most regarding Martin Freeman’s range as an actor.

        A bible in the middle earth ? Heresy!

        Ah shucks, where’s an edit button when you need it?
        How on earth did Bilbo turn into Bible anyhow? Looking at the keyboard, I don’t see how I could have done it lol. That’s like a one in a million slip of the fingers on the keyboard there lol…

        I guess you better go tell Peter Jackson that you’ll be taking over his job then… because apparently, after watching Freeman in a number of tv shows and deciding he was a great choice for Bilbo that he was – in fact – completely wrong! who knew.

        Calm down man, believe it or not I’m actually allowed to have an opinion on a film based off a book I know extremely well.

        Directors are (believe it or not) fallible. Even the great Peter Jackson (who I highly respect). Case in point: his casting of Jack Black in King Kong. I think even the most avid Peter Jackson fan would admit that Jack Black was all wrong for King Kong.

        At the end of the day, I am a Tolkien fan first and a Jackson fan second, and I stand by my opinion that this casting decision has me a bit worried/befuddled.

      haahaa

      It’s the Light of Earendil. It’s the same thing she gifts to Frodo in Lothlorien, before they leave, in Fellowship. Essentially it’s the light of a Silmaril.

      lol that’s exactly what initially thought. Stuck up cunt.

  • tarek

    I want to watch it on Imax, 3D, THX Odorama.

  • zfunk

    anyone have any clue what that thing in Bifurs head is?

      Piece of an orc’s axe. Dwarvish surgeons are not equal in skill to their masons and smiths…
