Translations from Elvish: dialogue from The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

saruman christopher lee credits botfa

The folks at Gwaith-i-Phethain, The Fellowship of the Word-smiths on the Elendilion website, have just finished analysing and translating the Sindarin dialogue from The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies.

They’ve set up a page with and with translations of the Sindarin dialogue of Tauriel, Galadriel, Legolas, etc. by Hungarian linguist Gábor Lőrinczi. (more…)

Peter Jackson: “no regrets”

HBT3-bs-343122.DNG This is a really interesting — and sometimes provocative — interview from just after the premiere of The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five armies.

The Daily Beast chatted with Peter Jackson about his two decades exploring Middle-earth, his thoughts on Tolkien purists (controversial!), evading the MPAA’s initial R rating on the most recent Hobbit film (I hadn’t heard about that), and his plans for the future (still hoping for the Dambusters film, personally).

I found this quote really interesting…

I don’t mean to undervalue the battle, they could be holding a knife and fork with their hands and be sitting at the table eating, or they can have a sword in their hand and fighting for their lives, it’s still the storytelling and the narrative that these guys are on that you’re really focused on.

Don’t forget to follow the link to read the full interview. (more…)

More (21 more) high-resolution photos from The Battle of the Five Armies

I was doing a little digging round on Warner Bros. media archives the other night and found that they added a bunch of high-resolution still and framecaps (from some of the TV teasers, I think) while I was on Christmas break.

So, while you’ve almost certainly seen these in low-res already — or in the cinema on the big-screen! — here are 21 nice, big stills directly from WB marketing. I’m particularly digging the chance to finally have a large, clear image of Dain on the warpig.

Just click each image to see it in full resolution. (more…)

Peter Jackson’s long goodbye to Middle-earth — and his Five armies cameo

Peter Jackson Stuff.co.nz has this nice little piece about Peter Jackson, including his cameo in The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies.

 


Given how long he has been hanging around Middle-earth, it’s easy to imagine that Peter Jackson finds it hard to say goodbye. (more…)

Evangeline Lilly chats about her last day on the set of The Hobbit

300891id6a_TheHobbit_TDOS_Tauriel_BusShelter_48inW_x_70inH.indd Here’s a transcript of a long but interesting roundtable question and answer session that Evangeline Lilly conducted with a number of reporters on her final day on the set of The Hobbit as Tauriel. As you’ll gather as you read along, the contents were under strict embargo until recently.

The transcript traverses not just her role, but also Lilly’s recently released children’s book, The Squickerwonkers.

Hobbit ‘Five Armies’ amassing a hoard at the box office

HBT3-fs-348347.DNG The battle for Smaug’s gold (otherwise known as The Battle of the Five Armies) seems to be fast amassing a hoard of its own at the box office.

Variety reports that, in the USA, the film could have raked in as much $88 million by the end of the weekend. Box Office Mojo figures already place its take at more than $50 million for Dec 17, 18 and 19. And in other markets round the world, the film has quickly marched past the $120 million mark, casually knocking off a largest-ever opening for Warner Bros. in Russia along the way. (more…)

Collecting The Precious – Weta Workshop’s New Middle-earth Collectibles

hobbitdossmaugkingblrg2The last couple of days have presented us with several new collectibles from the amazing folks at Weta Workshop. The first new item is from The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug and is none other than the Dragon himself Smaug. This is the mini-version we saw at Comic-Con this past July. This fun sized Smaug which is still plenty big, considering that Smaug himself isn’t a tiny one, comes in with solid price tag of $125, which will be shipping between December-February. Anyone that orders Smaug – King Under The Mountain will have to put down a 20% NRD when they order.

In conjunction with the final of The Hobbit Trilogy fans can add a commemorative pin for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies. This pin can be added to your collection for only $10.99 and is in-stock ready to ship. The final item comes from The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. If you’ve enjoyed collecting the pins from The Hobbit Trilogy now you can also do so for The Lord of the Rings Trilogy. This three piece set covers all three movies for $29.99 with this also being in-stock and ready to ship to your collections.

Martin Freeman chats about all things Bilbo

vlcsnap-2014-11-07-05h49m41s22 Over on AICN, Quint recently had a long chat with Martin Freeman about the conclusion to The Hobbit, and his own role as Bilbo within the three films.

As well as chatting about the effect of the three-film split, working with Peter Jackson and a his own acting process. As Quint points out, “he’s also pretty blunt about Bilbo taking a back seat at this point in the story.” Click the link at the bottom to head to AICN and read the whole interview. (more…)

Peter Jackson’s unexpected cameo double

Peter Jackson stands on the set of Lake-town.

New Zealand actor and film writer Jeff Slaven was invited in 2011 to work on Peter Jackson’s film adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit. Cast as a Lake-town extra, on one particular day at Stone Street Studios he found himself unexpectedly thrown into the role of doubling for Peter Jackson himself. Here he writes about his once-in-a-lifetime experience.

An unexpected cameo double

By Jeff Slaven

It started out as just a normal day on the set of The Hobbit. I was a Lake-town extra. Just one of many on that particular day. It was early evening and I was in between shots as Peter was doing his cameo on the Lake-town stage. (more…)
