I’ve been a bit out of the Hobbit movies loop since the arrival of the teaser trailer back in July. However, it seems that Warner Bros. has just decided to drag itself out of hibernation (and me with it) and has begun releasing a series of gritty, close-up character posters. I suspect that sort of look will be the continuing theme of this series — and probably is a good hint of the tenor of the last film.
The main one-sheet this time round is a determined-looking Bilbo pointing Sting at someone or something. A high-resolution version has just dropped into my lap, and since folks tend to enjoy seeing these things in the big pixels, here’s a clean version of the poster below. (more…)

Another September 22 — the birthdays of Bilbo and Frodo — has just passed. In our latest Library piece, TORn feature writer Tedoras reflects on Letter #214 from The Letters of J.R.R Tolkien and examines Tolkien’s thoughts on birthday customs in hobbit society and culture.
Beyond birthdays: examining Tolkien’s Letter #214
The epistolary nature of Tolkien’s literary existence is more than prodigious. If any book so illuminates the man, his deepest thoughts and truest character, it is The Letters of J.R.R. Tolkien.

Over the last few months there has been quite a bit of speculation over the interwebs about how many of the Dwarves will die in The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies
Ringer Haladin has sent us this little tit-bit in from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug Chronicle, Cloak & Daggers in the Cartography and Calligraphy section (Pg 32 – 33), image #16. The image is a letter to Bilbo on the occasion of his 111th birthday.
Spoiler warning, for those who haven’t read The Hobbit book, don’t read on. (more…)

Looks like we finally have a trailer for the Extended Edition of Desolation of Smaug, and yes, Thrain is in it. We no longer have to wonder what ever happened to that shadowy figure in Dol Guldur. This version Extends the original Theatrical Release by 25 minutes, plenty of time to see more details, get more action, and learn more about some of the characters. You will finally get to see all additional 25 minutes on November 4, but for now just this preview. The Trailer is on Yahoo Movies and after viewing, you can enter to win a prize, so double happiness to be had.
Without further ado, here is the Trailer.
