A new movie poster for “The Hobbit: an Unexpected Journey just debuted on the official Hobbit Movie Facebook page. The new poster is all about dwarves, dwarves and more dwarves. In fact, they managed to get all thirteen of them in the poster. All of them are very much in character which is that much more encouraging that Peter Jackson and crew will be able to pull of the challenging accomplishment of distinguishing thirteen major characters (and then some) and make them unique and memorable for the audience. What do you think the poster says about each of the dwarves’ personalities?

USA Today has just debuted six new photos from The Hobbit. There’s a great one of The Unexpected Party, another of Thorin Oakenshield looking very “questy”, and one beautiful image of Gollum, but the real eye-opener is Sylevester McCoy’s Radagast the Brown. There’s just something about his eyes that’s extraordinary. You know what I mean when you go have a look! Thanks to Ringer Owain for the heads-up! Oh, and SPOILERS!
From the very brief accompanying article: “I’m not a huge fan of fantasy for fantasy’s sake,” Jackson says. “I like Tolkien’s work because of the language, the cultures he wrote about… they’re anchored in a very real historical mythology that he created.”Posted in Andy Serkis, Hobbit Movie, Mark Hadlow, Martin Freeman, Peter Hambleton, Peter Jackson, Stephen Hunter, Sylvester McCoy, The Hobbit
Warner Bros. has released a new site specializing in the tastes of Middle-earth. Featuring such categories as sweets & treats, main courses and breakfast foods, it also provides a way for users to submit recipes. Steven Hunter’s Bombur is featured as the face of Middle-earth culinary delights and his cookbook is a linked tab as well. That may even be a clue into the character but more than that, it is a sign that WB wants to have a little fun with its December tent-pole movie.
The official description says:
Recipes From Middle-earth
Fellow travelers, we welcome you to sample this collection of recipes for authentic Middle-earth cuisine cultivated by the Dwarf Company’s heartiest appetite. Give each dish a rating, and submit your own recipes for others to enjoy and appraise too!

More Hobbit-y goodness for all! This time it’s superb portraits of the 13 members of the Company. I tell you, I am starting to get a feeling that James Nesbitt’s Bofur will be a bit of a scene stealer.
The only ones missing (at the moment) are Bilbo and Thorin Oakenshield.
The great news for fans is that there are no plot spoilers here (unless you count costumes). So dip right into the full gallery below!Posted in Adam Brown, Aidan Turner, Graham McTavish, Hobbit Movie, James Nesbitt, John Callen, Ken Stott, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Stephen Hunter

Message board member Carne recently did some brilliant research on the stunt performers who will be filling in for some of the actors playing the dwarves in “The Hobbit.” Per Carne: “These people are too often overlooked, so I thought: “Why not?” I also thought it might be fun to see which stunt performers most physically resemble the actors they’ll be filling in for.” Right you are, Carne! Take a look at these pictures Carne put together and let us know your thoughts on our Hobbit forum or Barliman’s Chat! Also, please let us know if you know of (or personally are) a stunt double so we can add to the list! …MorePosted in Adam Brown, Aidan Turner, Graham McTavish, Hobbit Movie, James Nesbitt, John Callen, Ken Stott, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Richard Armitage, Stephen Hunter
