So, it seems that we’re going to be drip-fed a photo a day until the San Diego Comic-Con Hall H presentation.
Today, it’s one of Gandalf meeting Thranduil in what seems to be a wintry and ruined Dale. Those following the Gandagast staff kerfuffle will note that Gandy has his old staff in this one. The one he lost in Dol Guldur just recently. (more…)

We all know that Warner Bros. and the production crew of The Hobbit have been very quiet since the turn of the year, releasing only a trickle of material relating to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.
That doesn’t mean that readers and movie fans have been dormant. In fact, they’ve been pretty active producing fake teaser posters. (more…)

According to the UK’s Mirror, Aidan Turner was talking to a fan who had her handbag stolen during the conversation. And then he took action.
“He quickly managed to catch up with the thief, pulling him off his bike and grabbing the handbag.”
The article explains that Turner isn’t actually as short as his character (seriously) and after the event he said,
“It’s great to be a real hero for a change rather than just an on-screen one. I think the rescue though was more like something from Indiana Jones than the Hobbit.”
You can read the whole story right here.

You have some of the actors who have been in The Lord of the Rings Trilogy and The Hobbit Trilogy there for various projects, our awesome Laketown Luau sponsors Weta Workshop and Badali Jewlery, and of course the Laketown Luau.

Director Jonathan King’s new film Realiti, featuring Graham McTavish among the cast, will have its world premiere in Wellington on July 31st, with further screenings there and in Auckland in early August. Written by Chad Taylor, the film was made whilst McTavish was also busy with pickups for a certain trilogy; the director says:
“The Hobbit’s Graham McTavish plays a featured (non prosthetic – or kilt!) role in the film, and he’s really great in it: a different tone to his fantasy-related work, but a part that really suits his authority and charisma. Graham worked on the film at the same time as he was shooting The Hobbit here and it was a thrill for us how much attention he gave to our small film at the same time as he was involved in such a big one! I think it will be great for fans to see Graham in a different kind of role.”
