Empire Magazine grabbed Elijah Wood for a forty-minute live interview and Q&A at the Edinburgh International Film Festival just the other week. At around 30-minute-mark they asked him about The Hobbit.
Empire: Speaking of tiny, tiny independent productions, what can we ask you about The Hobbit?
Elijah Wood: You can ask me anything. I don’t know that much. I don’t know that much about it, but you can.
Empire: There must be a kind of joy to that with people going “Oh go on, spill us a secret”. “Nothing. Got nothing”.
Elijah Wood: I kinda don’t have anything. *pause* I know how it ends.
Elijah Wood: That is actually a secret I do hold. So I do know that. And it’s great. Oh, it’s good. It’s really good.
You have to listen to this just to hear the way Wood teasingly says Oh, it’s good. He’s so evil!
Big tease aside, this must surely re-open thoughts of a book-end conclusion that mirrors the opening of An Unexpected Journey? Thanks to Ringer Martin for the heads-up!

Bilbo’s mithril shirt. Image source: Dwimmerlaiks tumblr. Video source: Hobbit Production Blog #11 at 1 minute and 55 seconds.
Pre-emptive warning for movie spoilers.
This all started when I began looking into Bilbo’s mithril shirt for our mega-spoiler post, following up a tip from an eagle-eyed reader that said shirt had been sighted in one of Peter Jackson’s previous production blogs.
It wasn’t the clearest of vision, but yes it seemed as though it was Bilbo’s mithril shirt — the same one we see him give to Frodo at Rivendell in The Fellowship of the Ring. Nice to know, but not much of a revelation. (more…)

Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (WBIE) and Monolith Productions has released an all-new trailer, Shadow of Mordor Gameplay – Nemesis System Power Struggles.

Ringer Matt sent us this little snippet from a chat he had with Manu Bennett at the Sydney Supanova last weekend.
“I was able to have a quick chat with Manu Bennett (AKA Azog) whilst I was getting his signature. He said he had not completed filming for Azog yet on the final film and he was set to return to New Zealand next month to finish up.”
Come and share your opinion about this on our Hobbit Movie Board over on our Message Boards.
