That picture of Lindir reminds me of a young Kurt Russell.
Not the greatest example, but...

I read recently that Peter Jackson is shooting The Hobbit in 48 frames per second instead of the usual 24, giving us much smoother ultra realistic images. James Cameron intends to shoot with it as well and described it thusly...

“If watching a 3D movie is like looking through a window, then [with this] we’ve taken the glass out of the window and we’re staring at reality.”

:D :popcorn: I do believe that I shall embarass myself in the theater. :lol: And this should mean uber clear screencaps! :heart:

A really cool video from The Hobbit set here. I loved the Māori welcome and the Hongi with the cast and crew. :)

I think I even saw Figwit! :lol: (a flash at about 2:50)


:biggrin:

Image :heart:

Another article here about the high speed filming. I like the last bit...

British actor Martin Freeman will play the film's unlikely hero, adventurous hobbit Bilbo Baggins. Cate Blanchett, Sir Ian McKellen, Elijah Wood, Orlando Bloom and Andy Serkis will also star in the movies, as will Flight of the Conchords co-star Bret McKenzie.


"star"?!?!? Really?!?!? I wish. :lol:

I don't know if I'm hard-core but watching it made me teary and excited and want to watch the first 3 again. :heart: Seeing the sets....the Maori welcome....the Hongi greetings....everyone's heart-felt speeches about being back in NZ to start making The Hobbit....*snif*

I can't wait. And not just for Bret, though that is a huge BONUS. :D

Yes!!! Yes it does! I can't tell you how excited I am right now. :woohoo:

Thank you so much for posting that, nonch! :prayer:

I can't get over how different Peter Jackson looks these days. He looks great. But what was with that suit Martin Freeman had on? :puzzled: I hope that was a costume. :roll2:

True, and he looked far more comfortable in his spandex onesie than Martin did in that baby blue jacket. :lol:

:rolls: PJ might find a role for her if you asked him nicely. Image

Mmmmm Legolas. I'm glad he made it into the movie. Would Legolas and Lindir be connected in any way?

(I swear I'm not imagining an elf, elf, lady threesome)

I was a huge LOTR fangirl back in the day and while that excitement has worn off over the years, watching the video and seeing everybody again is making me really excited about this movie. I can't wait. :woohoo:

Uggg and we have to wait SO LONG. :down:

Peter Jackson's video was very well done. I hope we get more of them. :)

This video and this series of videos is very informative (esp for new Tolkien fans like me) and this episode has a brief mention of Bret. I was glad to hear the host pronounce the name "Lindir" as I wasn't really sure I was saying it correctly. (I wasn't :lol: ) Anyway, if you want to skip to the Bret bits...it starts at 2:20.



Lindir - Lynn DEAR. :D (not LIN der) :oops: :lol:

I'm sure we will. I love that he does all the behind the scenes videos and is already posting them online. There is never a shortage of special features on the dvds. You could spend hours watching all of them from the LOTR.

:lol: Yes she is.

I just picked up the Platinum Series LOTR Trilogy...extended versions. That should keep me busy until The Hobbit is released. :purple: There are four dvd's for each movie. :worry:

I rewatched FOTR and seriously choked laughing every time a lyric from "Frodo don't wear the Ring" was uttered. :roll2: It was good fun. :D

The first time I heard "Frodo, don't wear the ring" I about died laughing. It didn't help that I was actually living in Middle Earth at the time. :lol:

I have all the extended versions too. I haven't watched them in years. Maybe it's time I did, if I can find them. All my stuff is either lying in piles or getting boxed up while I'm getting ready for the move.
