Collecting The Precious – The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Film Cell Collectibles

October 3, 2012 at 3:31 pm by elessar  - 

UPDATE!  The nice folks at FilmCells have created a special offer just for you, dear reader!  Use this link to go to their website and use the coupon code ONERING10 in the checkout to receive 10% off your order!  This can also be used in conjunction with the free shipping offer for in-land USA orders, and is valid on all website orders placed before midnight next Monday, 8th Oct.

The good stuff just keeps coming!  Tolkien fans can now view another new license of collectibles for the upcoming movie The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey: today brings us something that allows you, in a way, to bring the movie home before its December 14th release date. These awesome collectibles from FilmCells give you the chance to add genuine film cells from the movie to your collection, with several great designs, including bookmarks. (It may seem like an odd thing to have film cells from a movie which was shot digitally, but FilmCells’ website confirms that the cells are authentic ‘real film from the movie’.)  Many of their beautiful designs can also be purchased with backlights, so once hung on your wall the film cells can be viewed anytime, to the best advantage.  If you want to get a head start on owning what could turn out to be one of your favorite scenes, jump over to Film Cells LTD website.

  1. Well, in fact, it is obviously a money-cutting machine, taking a 35mm analog copy of the film, cutting it in frames and selling them for $$$. That’s “real film from the movie” alright.

    What they have to mean by “real film from the movie” is that the images were taken from the digital computer and put through a telecine to be put on film. It really isn’t authentic since the film isn’t the raw negative the movie was shot on. It’s just a ploy. However, it’s still pretty cool.

    In my humble opinion, I suggest everyone waits until the official Weta Workshop film frame collectibles are released. The Sideshow Weta displays are far more impressive than this.

    The reason there are still film cells even though The Hobbit was shot in digital is that these cells are from the printed reels shown in cinemas, rather than the actual film that went through the cameras at the time of shooting. Since some cinemas still don’t have digital projectors the movie still has to be printed onto film.
    Also the cells available at the moment won’t be from the actual film but from the trailer. If you look closely you can see that all the stills are from Trailer #1 from way back in December.
    I still want some though!
