The Hobbit
 
Even though the first movie is to come out December 2012, and the 2nd December 2013, I've been following the Facebook page for this & there's a blog site also, with production videos from the set + Peter Jackson, exclusive looks at the characters etc which I thought I'd post here:

The Hobbit | Facebook

The Hobbit Blog | The official blog of THE HOBBIT movies

Super excited for this, even this early on >.<

Yeah i am too looking forward to this. Hopefully it'll be as good/epic as the LOTR movies.

And i also Hope the first one'll come out before the world ends, december 2012, right there on the limit. =]

Aimee 07-22-2011 03:59 PM

ahah it's December 14th (UK) if I recall correctly, so I think we'll be okay for the first one. As for the second, we'll have to wait and see if the world really ends xD
I'm glad that they're using the same actors for the characters that appear in both LOTR and the Hobbit. <:

oh and the titles:
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)
The Hobbit: There and Back Again (2013)

Awesome, wouldn't have known about it yet if it wasn't for this thread.

I really enjoyed the trilogy and I read parts of this book when I was a kid. LotR will be released on BluRay eventually, so it'll be a lot of good things coming at once.

If they leave out a single detail or do anything different, I will nerd-rage like no tomorrow. There is absolutely no reason to put The Hobbit into two parts. -.-'

Can you think of a movie that did not leave out anything or differ the movie from the original books?

Aimee 07-24-2011 11:05 AM

The fact that they're putting it into two parts just makes me feel that it will have most, if not all of the content.

and Ayumi, I'm pretty certain Lotr is already out on blu-ray. The extended edition blu-ray was released last month iirc :3

Given the fact that the Hobbit is not that long (My family owns 3 copies of different "editions," mine is about 306 pages, my mother's from the '70s is about 316 pages) I see no reason to split them in half other than to milk more money out of a fairly milked series. Assuming the movies are typical LotR length (2hrs+) then there should be no details left out for a fairly short book. If it was one movie then I'd be fine with details being left out, but two movies for a short book is a definite no. Not to mention I don't even see a good place to split the book anyways.

Oh damn, I'm just behind times then. D:

It was just a general question, since I'm not a huge fan of books. I agree that they shouldn't split it into two movies, though. I think they like to do it because they know LotR and HOP were popular waits, but that's because they were written that way and already split stories.

Well, I'm fine with them splitting movies like Harry Potter (I assume that's what you meant with HOP q-q) because it's the last movie, HP7 is a decently sized book, and there's a lot of stuff in it that you can just leave out.

It's all opinions anyways.

Awesome news, I wouldn't've known if it hadn't been for this thread either! :D

I really liked the book, read it several times, the movie should be entertaning. And the first one is coming out around my 18th birthday. Nice gift, I'd say.

TheGazettE 09-02-2011 08:44 AM

love the movies and books! i cant wait for this movie :3

and about splitting it into two movies..well, its a marketing ploy and i think its better because there'll be alot more things they can put in from the book when its two movies rather than one..

Aimee 12-21-2011 04:16 AM

Super Bump! But the first announcement trailer is out and I just got all sorts of excited 8D




eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee :py24:

Moonflow 12-21-2011 04:35 AM

Looks good.

Will be fun to have a hobbit + lotr marathon.

Dani 12-21-2011 04:36 AM

Next year, huh?... Welp now I can look forward to my 20th birthday (???). HelpI'mgettingold

Queen 12-21-2011 07:57 AM

I read The Hobbit when I was little, excited to see this.

euuuuuuugh I'll be 20 too wat.

ForTheCity 12-22-2011 01:21 PM

am i the only one whos not excited for this. thought the trailer was lame imo. maybe i'm just not into movies like this, since i am more of a sci-fi kinda guy.

Aimee 12-16-2012 03:25 AM

Just bumping this super old thread instead of making a new one, because I wanna know what people are thinking about the movie.

I'm not quite sure yet.

It was a GREAT movie, but the progression was slow (esp. in comparison to LOTR, and I can't help but to compare it) It was slow, because it doesn't need to be split into three movies.
The cinematography was really really well done, but I think a lot of people are taking good graphics, camera angles, lighting etc and the fancy filming method and being blown away by that, and not really focusing on what's happening in terms of story.

All in all, a great movie, but not mind-blowing like I was expecting it to be.

I felt as if the movie was dragged out too much.

james 12-25-2012 02:45 PM

Things were well done, but I did not like all the liberties they took with it. They changed like a good chunk of the book (Azog is mentioned in The Hobbit, but does not play a pivotal role; Troll scene plays out differently; Radagast the Brown is not in The Hobbit), which really upset me, especially since they're doing three ****ing movies.
