“This city was once the jewel of our kingdom. A place of light, and beauty, and music. And so it shall be once more! Let the armies of Mordor know this: Never again will the land of my people fall into enemy hands. This city of Osgiliath has been reclaimed for Gondor!
-Boromir to the Gondorian Troops after taking back Osgiliath
A son of Gondor has arrived from Sideshow Collectibles. Boromir, Son of Denethor is the sixth statue from Sideshow’s growing and spectacular The Lord of the Rings statue line. Unlike the other statues in this line this one does come from a moment in the film that you can only see if you watch the extended version. They have captured Boromir’s stirring speech to the troops upon them taking back the western half of Osgiliath.
The graphics on the box for Boromir follows the same path as previous releases from this series. You have the front and black panels, which are black with The Lord of the Rings and Boromir done in a shade of Silver. While on the sides of the box you get an image of the statue from two different angles. The material of the box is different though as the past boxes have been more of a matte finish where as this one is more glossy. Inside the box of course you have the protective foam with multiple areas for the many pieces that this statue comes with. (more…)
Author George R. R. Martin has urged fans to look out for two scripts from hit TV show Game Of Thrones which were stolen before a planned charity auction.
The writer, who penned the fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire, which the hit HBO series is based on, planned to put scripts from two episodes of the show under the hammer at the sci-fi WorldCon event later this week.
But after he had the screenplays sent over for him to sign, he discovered both manuscripts had been stolen. [3 News] [Time]
Sideshow Collectibles Online Comic-Con event is into its sixth day and it brings us another new The Lord of the Rings collectible. This new collectible will be joining Sideshow’s maquette line and the character responsible will be Boromir son of Denethor. In this maquette Boromir will be captured during a sequence from the extended edition of The Two Towers where he plants a flag while giving a speech when Osgiliath is recovered.
This piece has an amazing likeness to Sean Bean and yet another must have piece in this growing maquette collection. The exclusive to the Boromir maquette will be an additional switch out right arm allowing you to have variable display options. The edition size of the exclusive Boromir maquette is 500 pieces world wide and will have a price tag of $250 along with a $25 Non-Refundable Deposit.

On this episode of Hobbit in 5, we talk about the Fellowship of the Ring extended edition screening, Sean Bean is okay after being stabbed with a piece of glass, NZ was rocked again by two earthquakes, and show you some Ringer fan creations! For our character study, we’ll look at Radagast the Brown.
Thanks to our executive producers: John A. Smith, Mark Ernst, Scott Bulger, Tony Borgersen, Bryce Nargi, and Vegard Ovland.
Actor Sean Bean, who played Boromir in LOTR, was apparently in a bar brawl where he was stabbed with a piece of glass! True to his rugged characters, there were no major injuries and Sean seemingly continued to have a pint! Thanks to Ringer Irfon for the heads up:
He became known to millions as the rugged, hero soldier in historical drama Sharpe.
And now actor Sean Bean has proven once and for all that his tough-guy image is not just fictional.
The Daily Mail has learned that Bean was ‘stabbed’ in the arm following a row over a beautiful young model.
Sideshow Collectibles has posted a teaser video of their upcoming Boromir statue. Based on the small tidbit we see in the video, it looks like this statue will recreate the scene of Boromir in Osgiliath. This is the latest piece to join the new statue line-up that already includes Gandalf, Aragorn as Strider, Gimli and Legolas. [Video]
Sean Bean, a favorite of LOTR fans worldwide, is anchoring HBO’s fantasy series “A Game of Thrones.” Bean plays Eddard Stark in the adult-themed series, and last week he ran into a bit of difficulty. Fans have consistently given us feedback that they love these clips and HBO has sent along another pair for your viewing enjoyment. We don’t want to get too spoiler-heavy so we will let the clips mostly speak for themselves. It is worth noting that Conan Stevens, a 7-foot-tall stunt actor playing Gregor Clegane or The Mountain That Rides (poor horse!) in “A Game of Thrones,” was just announced as the giant Orc Azogyesterday He appears in neither clip.
HBO shares another clip from Sean Bean in the adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s “A Game of Thrones,” fantasy series. This Sunday will be the fifth episode of the 10 dedicated to the first of Martin’s “Ice & Fire” series in which Bean stars as Eddard “Ned” Stark. He plays a nobleman who holds tightly to his ideals and honor and serves as “The Hand” of the King. In this scene he speaks with Ser Barristan, one of the Kingsguard, sworn to protect the royal family.
Readers have been appreciating our weekly preview of Sean Bean’s (Ned Stark) new HBO series “A Game of Thrones,” and HBO keeps on providing us with material. This week, Bean is back to verbal sparring with a character that is quickly becoming fans’ favorite guy to hate.
Peter Jackson has posted another note on his official Facebook wall. In it he talks about the three phases of filming, a few stories from FOTR filming and a hint at what will be filming next:
Just arrived at our four-day Easter break, which will be a nice time to recharge batteries and do a few script tweaks for future scenes.
We always find there are three distinct phases in the life of a film script. First, it exists before the film starts shooting. In this period, which can last from months to years, the script is a theoretical docum…
HBO’s big, new fantasy series “A Game of Thrones,” starring Sean Bean marches on with its second episode this Sunday and now with a second season approved. The folks at HBO have sent us two new clips to share with readers this week. Although neither of them feature Bean, there were lot of positive reactions to our clips last week from our Middle-earth fanbase so we thought we would share the clips, featuring scenes from the second hour of the 10-hour first season. Enjoy!
HBO has picked up a second season of fantasy series “Game of Thrones” on the heels of solid numbers for Sunday’s premiere. Genre shows have been popular with young adults over the past year, with HBO’s “True Blood” and AMC’s “The Walking Dead” often beating their broadcast competition in adults 18-49.
On its opening night, “Thrones” drew 2.2 million viewers in its regular 9 o’clock slot, and then added another 1.2 million for its quickie repeat at 10:05 p.m. (where it likely picked up viewers following the completion of the Boston-New York NBA playoff game on TNT). Throw in the 11:15 p.m. airing (800,000) and “Thrones” drew 4.2 million viewers, according to HBO. More..
