Claire writes: There’s an article on Guillermo del Toro in the ‘Film Quarterly’ magazine which comes with this week’s Observer, a Sunday newspaper in the UK. It’s mostly about the designs for Hellboy, but does mention how he’ll be recording his ideas for ‘The Hobbit’. You can find it here.
For those in the UK who can get hold of a copy, there are pictures of sketches for Hellboy and the characters as they appeared on screen.
Also in the same magazine is Phillip French’s Top Ten Trilogies. Phillip French is a well-known and well-respected film critic. The Top Ten isn’t in any particular order, and if you scroll down the list on this page the Lord of the Rings trilogy is fifth in the list.
