    [​IMG] You've already seen the Hobbit cover of the latest issue of Empire, but here's a sneak peek at two of the images inside the magazine, showing Bilbo and Gandalf in all their Martin Freeman-y, Sir Ian McKellen-y glory. And inside the magazine is a lengthy and exclusive report from the film's New Zealand set, which our Ian Nathan visited recently. The good news? Peter Jackson is relaxed, happy and hitting his stride.


    “I’m exactly the same filmmaker as I was ten years ago,” says Jackson. “I’m trying to nail the same thing that I did before. I’m just telling the story.” The only difference is that this time he has a bunch of snarky dwarves to corral. "“They don’t know what to make of Gandalf, they think Bilbo is a wuss, and Elrond a prissy headmaster type,” laughs Jackson.

    Is this the movie in the series where they find the ring on the moon and battle the deciptiorcs for it?

    I already posted this on the general movie thread, but the teaser trailer is out:

    Also, the first of two films will be released Dec. 14, 2012.

    Apropos of nothing, but if Ian McKellan and Morgan Freeman were to star in a movie together, the Earth would collapse in on itself into a black hole from the sheer gravitas those two bring to the screen. Just sayin'.

    I won't even say how many times I've watched this trailer.

    2012 looks like an excellent year for movies.

    I loved these books when I was a kid, but the movies are so bloated.
    They're not bad, but they need some editing.
    The fact that Jackson is taking two movies for 'The Hobbit' does not bode well.

    Absurd. Even David Foster Wallace would consider this excessive.

    Will they get out of the door of Bilbo's house in the first movie? Or will it all be Bilbo preparing dinner for the dwarves?

    I might have to boycott this.
    Unbelievable ego.
