Warner Brothers UK has posted a short new featurette on YouTube showcasing Laketown and Bard. Curiously, while the video appears to be meant as an advertisement for the new Blu-ray/DVD release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, the video itself is not present in any of the bonus features on the set.
The same is the case for the previously posted video “Beorn the Shapeshifter“. The Blu-ray/DVD releases do, however, feature an all new 40 minute documentary titled “Peter Jackson Invites You to the Set”. (more…)

SciFiNow spoke to Daniel Falconer, Weta Workshop designer and author of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug: Unleashing the Dragon (order it here if you haven’t already) about the process of creating what he describes as “the grand-daddy” of fantasy dragons.
He also reveals what Benedict Cumberbatch brought to the role, and why he feels Peter Jackson understands exactly what is required from a fantasy epic.

Close on the heels of the April 8 release of the theatrical edition of The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug on DVD and Bluray, TORn begins convention season at Wondercon with previews of what is coming next. The first convention on the TORn tour is Wondercon in Anaheim over the Easter weekend. We will begin to unravel what to expect from The Hobbit: There and Back Again. You can find information about Wondercon right here. We have a prime panel slot slated for Saturday at 5:30pm, don’t be late, we always fill the room.
Staffers from TheOneRing.net, experts in Tolkien and fandom for almost 15 years, gather clues, speculation, and inside information about what the final cinematic experience in Middle-earth will be like. They will answer questions and engage fellow fans about anything under the Tolkien sun and, maybe, some special guests.
Saturday April 19, 2014 5:30pm – 6:30pm
This year, we will have a booth at Wondercon where we will have an assortment of shirts and other items for sale. Just look for us at Booth #1504. And now, a first sneak peek at our Wondercon exclusive design t-shirt which will shortly be available for pre-order.

In what is possibly of the biggest boilovers imaginable, Middle-earth March Madness for 2014 has come down to a father-son battle for the title honours!
That’s right: it’s a Thranduil vs Legolas final.
After a very slow semi-final start, Thranduil clawed his way back through the field to eventually topple Aragorn out of the contest, while Legolas and Thorin waged a neck-and-neck battle for quite some time before the former pulled away in the vote.

It’s not all sparkles, party-time and un-ending barrels of Dorwinion wine in the underground halls of Thranduil’s stronghold.
In fact, if one delves a little into Unfinished Tales a number emerge why one should consider Thranduil quite a formidable ruler, especially in relation to some of his elven peers. Here are four of mine (you may have more).

It clocks in at only 15 seconds, but as these things go this TV spot for the home video release of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is pretty good. Very punchy.
Lots of Smaug and fire, as you’d expect. Check it out below. (more…)
