Five fabulous fan-made teaser posters for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

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…)

Collecting The Precious – Weta Workshop’s Nori the Dwarf Statue Review

IMG_9873Nori the Dwarf recently arrived to join our collections and brings us to nine of the thirteen Dwarves in Thorin’s Company.

The character design for Nori is one of the most unqiue that Peter Jackson went with when creating these characters for The Hobbit Trilogy. Our friends at Weta Workshop have done a fantastic job of taking that look and turning it into a great 1:6th scale representation of the character played by Jed Brophy. Nori is a limited edition piece with an edition size of just 1000 pieces world wide and can be purchased right now for $250.

The Lord of the Fonts: a guide to fonts in The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings

The Lord of the Fonts

A Lord of the Rings and Hobbit Font Guide

by TheHutt (Peter Klassen)

What would the Lord of the Rings trilogy be without its iconic logo? The chiseled yellow letters are pretty close to perfection where movie logos are concerned. But that’s not the only instance of certain characteristic typefaces used throughout the trilogy and its marketing. Most of them have recurred in the new Hobbit films – but what exactly are they and where can they be obtained? (more…)

Hobbit 3 fact sheet: everything we know about The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

Legolas_Bard So, what do we actually know about The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies? This constantly expanding list is TORn’s — with the help of our eagle-eyed readers — attempt to document all our knowledge of film three (at least until we get inundated by post-trailer and SDCC marketing).

Naturally this post involves lots of SPOILERS. No holds barred, as they say. So, if you’re avoiding movie spoilers … I dunno, go read this amusing article about Ringwraiths. (more…)

Watch the existing Hobbit Vlog footage that covers the Battle of the Five Armies

Legolas_Bard It’s no secret that news about The Hobbit: the Battle of the Five Armies has been thin on the ground lately.

One tiny nugget of news that popped up mid-week was the release of an official synopsis in German that did little but confirm things that we already knew. So, yes, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving and Cate Blanchett will be reprising their roles in the final film. If you’re keen to have a read, head to Herr-der-Ringe for the German original, or check out the English translation on our messageboards courtesy of Ringer Ringer Arannir.

DJ E-Wood? FantasyCon lands Elijah Wood for its opening night party

DJEWoodSALT LAKE CITY — Elijah Wood isn’t joining fellow Fellowship actors Billy Boyd, Sean Astin and John Rhys-Davies for autographs and panels at FantasyCon July 3 – 5, but he is joining the adventure in other ways. The Daily Herald broke the news yesterday that Wood will DJ an evening event the night before it all starts to get FantasyCon rolling.

The event follows an invite-only charity event that same evening for seven different children’s charities that helps kids get access to FantasyCon that otherwise wouldn’t be able to attend an event like a big public convention. You can read more about Wood’s event RIGHT HERE and read more about the guests at FantasyCon here. Those who purchase VIP tickets (ticketing here) to FantasyCon look to have access to the event that will likely have very limited availability to the public. (more…)

Check out this interview with interview that Ethan Gilsdorf conducted with John Howe over two sessions in January and July last year. It’s a corker.

Howe is, of course, a long-time Tolkien illustrator and is currently working with Alan Lee as Conceptual Designer for The Hobbit movie trilogy.

Debunking that Hobbit movie rumour about Thorin Oakenshield

Thorin_Oakenshield Many people have written to us over the last five or so days about a story that has begun circulating around the internet concerning Thorin Oakenshield and the final Hobbit film, The Battle of the Five Armies.

Frankly, we hoped this story would die a quiet death because it is simply not credible. However, a couple of web media outlets have picked it up so somewhat reluctantly here we are quashing a rumour that simply has no credence at all.

Seeing as this is obviously leading us into spoiler territory, if you are avoiding them or have not read the book (I know there are a few of you out there), then look away now. (more…)

How There and Back Again became The Battle of the Five Armies. And why.

THE HOBBIT - FAKE BOFA TITLEWell, that was a surprise.

Even following our spy report last week that Warner Bros. (via New Line) had registered a new title for its trilogy of Hobbit films, I thought it unlikely they actually would follow through and make a change.

Mostly because There And Back Again seemed too established as a name and it seemed a bit irrational to toss away all that brand recognition.

On the other hand, it’s almost inarguable those two words The Hobbit are the true key that deliver all that goodwill (in an accounting sense) toward the films. And Warner Bros, with nothing more than the announcement of a mid-stream title change, have just scored the film millions of dollars worth of free editorial. That’s gold for any marketer.
