At the press interviews for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug in Los Angeles, Yahoo!’s Meriah Doty put Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly and Luke Evans through a quick quiz to see if they could ID their co-stars’ feet.
Because Peter Jackson thinks shoeless-ness is the new black, and Bilbo Baggins is also shoe-averse — The Hobbit is really a story about feet, right? (more…)

Comic-Con 2013 brought us, at this point, one of the most polarizing characters we’ve seen in The Hobbit Trilogy. Before she ever uttered a line, Evangeline Lilly’s Tauriel had fans picking sides. Collectors got a good look at the character when the amazing artists at Weta Workshop unveiled the 1:6th statue of Tauriel. This was a special release granted by Warner Brothers so fans could see the character and start getting us pumped for the awesomeness that is to come in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug.

You have until midnight on December 1 to enter and they will contact the winner by phone on December 2. Since that is the same day as the actual premiere, you will probably want to already be in Southern California, or able to get here very quickly.

This contest it is open to all US and Canadian residents, with a few small exclusions, so make sure to read the rules before registering to win a chance to sit in one of the seats shown below. Personally, I’d shoot for a seat in the middle about half way back to get the full effect of the 3D and actually be able to see Smaug towering over above while hearing every single gold coin sliding all around you.
Good Luck to each and every one of you, and if you do win, make sure to tweet us @theoneringnet so we can look for you walking the Red Carpet.

A flood of trailers, interviews and TV spots have raised all sorts of questions over exactly how events will pan out across The Desolation of Smaug. Here, Captain Salt takes a long hard look at the implications for character development among our beardy friends who are so keen to reclaim their heritage, and the lost treasures of Erebor.
Needless to say, lots of speculation and lots of potential movie spoilers. If you’re avoiding these, look away now! (more…)

This evening saw the release of the latest TV Spot for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug! Tonight we get a spot focused primarily on the Elven warrior Tauriel, though we also get a couple new shots of our main characters as well (keep an eye out especially for the shot right at the end!).
Having a character devoted TV Spot reminds me of the original ads for The Fellowship of the Ring (there were ones focused on Frodo, Gandalf, Aragorn & Arwen). I very much hope that we see this trend continue in the coming weeks. (more…)

German magazine CINEMA has devoted several pages of its December issue to the filming and post production of the second film in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit Trilogy – The Desolation of Smaug. They offered a wealth of interesting tidbits – not the least of which was a glimpse at what could potentially be the opening prologue of film two.
Before reading further – be warned, there are definitely SPOILERS ahead. (Thanks to Eol for pointing us in the direction of thorinoakenshield.net’s translation of the article.) (more…)
