New Images from The Hobbit Films

So here we have a whole new spate of new images from The Hobbit app that Warner Bros released. Now I wish they would do this for android phones as well – I am not even going to ask for something for my Blackberry because I know that is not going to happen. But who knows? We are after all, talking about a realm where dragons fly. 🙂 But apart from my meagre cribbing, let me get down directly to sharing the goodies that I gathered.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Annual 2013

I cannot quite contain my excitement. A few minutes ago I managed to catch theonering.net post on facebook about the newly released “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Annual 2013”. I immediately hurried to the online website I buy books from and placed my order for it. Why? Well, because this is the OFFICIAL Hobbit Annual, published in advance of the amazing new movie by Peter Jackson, packed with stills, characters and information from the movie sensation.

Join Bilbo Baggins on his unexpected journey across the wilds of Middle-earth with Gandalf the Wizard and a company of thirteen Dwarves! This Annual is the ideal gift for all Hobbit and movie fans. Full of character profiles, Hobbit activities and information, this is the perfect companion to the blockbuster movie.

Here are some of the images from the Annual.

Richard Armitage Talks The Hobbit

Cast as Thorin

Richard Armitage has spoken exclusively to Total Film about his role in Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit.

 

We recently sat down with the British actor to talk about his role as dwarf Thorin Oakenshield in the two-part Tolkien epic, and he told us: “There’s going to be quite a lot more humour.

 

“The book is so focused on the dwarves, so I think it’s a chance for Peter [Jackson] and Fran [Walsh] to really look at that whole race in more detail, their heritage and what they’re like as characters.”

 

The dwarves aren’t just there as comic relief though, as Armitage has learnt while wielding the Orcrist, Thorin’s legendary goblin sword.

 

“It’s bloody heavy!” he told us. “But it’s absolutely beautiful to look at. Every time they bring something new out everyone gasps. The armour that the dwarves emerge from the mountain wearing at the end of the film will be the armour of all armour.”

 

Tolkien fan Armitage said that he’s in his element shooting in New Zealand: “There was a scene in The Lord Of The Rings where they find the stone trolls, and they’re identical in The Hobbit.

 

“I love those moments, when you link into the world of the film that you’ve seen before.”
