Media Watch: Empire Magazine

New Empire magazine published in the UK today. It’s a special 2 cover collectors edition with 40 pages dedicated to the film! Not many new pics, but lots of fascinating articles. I’ll try sending a few scans in tomorrow. One snippet of news for now that will make you drool. In an article about Weta is the following paragraph.

In April, the footage at the Cannes film festival featured an astonishing CG cave-troll. Which, remarkably, has since been overhauled. “For Cannes, it was ‘OK, we’ve got 80 cave-troll shots, and they seem to be working perfectly nicely.’ But we went back and redid all those, and they’re just amazing now, ” reveals Rygiel.
