New Hobbit Photos Show Us Gandalf, Dwarves And Gollum
Just yesterday, we showed you the cover of this week's issue of Entertainment Weekly, which features two characters likely to be very familiar to fans of J.R.R Tolkien's work and the films based on his books. With the issue reportedly on shelves today, EW has posted a number of photos from the greatly anticipated first part of Peter Jackson's feature adaptation of Tolkien's The Hobbit. This includes a look at the dwarves, Gandalf, and a certain fish-loving cave-dweller.
The Hobbit will be broken up into two films, with An Unexpected Journey set to arrive in theaters this December (12/14), and There and Back Again on track to release almost exactly one year later (December 13, 2013). In addition to a guide to this year's Comic Con, this week's issue of EW features coverage of The Hobbit. And among the numerous photos Entertainment Weekly posted on their site this week is this one, which shows Ian McKellan as Gandalf. Judging by the lush green background and the tininess of the fence near his legs, it's likely that we're looking at him in Hobbiton, where he's visiting Bilbo in his attempt to recruit him for a journey.
McKellan isn't the only familiar face Lord of the Rings fans should expect to see in The Hobbit. This one gives us a look at Andy Serkis as Gollum.
Apparently the actor didn't have much trouble getting back into the motion captured role. In fact, EW quotes Serkis as saying "He's always been kind of lurking under my skin." That's kind of creepy, but I love it.
And this one gives us a look at the dwarves, including Being Human's Aidan Turner, who plays Kili (second from the left). All the way to the left is Dean O'Gorman as Fili. Mark Hadlow is the third from the left, playing Dori, and all the way to the right os Jed Brophy as Nori.
And last, but most definitely not least, we have Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins as he faces giant spiders in Mirkwood Forest.
By comparison to the cover photo, I prefer this version of Bilbo better, especially seeing him with Sting in hand and the slightly fearful but determined look on his dirt-covered face. That's the look of a hobbit on an adventure.
Peter Jackson Wraps On The Hobbit Pictures
After the marathon of moviemaking that was The Lord of the Rings trilogy, writer-director Peter Jackson was uniquely qualified to tackle J.R.R. Tolkein's The Hobbit, which he and fellow screenwriters Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens and Guillermo del Toro decided would be split into two films. The first of these, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, will make its world premiere in New Zealand November 28th, 2012, with this prequel's sequel, The Hobbit: There and Back Again, hitting theaters the winter of 2013. But now, after 266 days of production that kicked off in March of 2011, both films have officially wrapped on principal photography.
Jackson announced the monumental event on his Facebook page, proclaiming:
The story of The Hobbit films precedes that of Frodo and his crew by 60 years, and so centers on a brave little Hobbit named Bilbo Baggins and how he obtained the powerful ring at the center of the trilogy. In The Lord of the Rings movies, Old Bilbo was played by celebrated character actor Ian Holm, but An Unexpected Journey and There and Back Again will star Sherlock's Martin Freeman as a younger and more spry Bilbo who goes on an adventure with a pack of pugnacious dwarves that seek to defeat the vicious dragon Smaug, who will be voiced by Freeman's Sherlock co-star Benedict Cumberbatch.
However, Holm will make an appearance, as will a plethora of LOTR castmates including Andy Serkis, Ian McKellen, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Orlando Bloom, Elijah Wood, and Cate Blanchett, all reprising their roles from the heralded LOTR trilogy. Newcomers to the Tolkien franchise include Luke Evans (Immortals), Evangeline Lilly (Lost), and Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies).
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will open in the U.S. on December 14th, 2012. The Hobbit: There and Back Again will follow on December 13th, 2013.
The Hobbit Gets A Beautiful New Comic Con Poster
It looks like Warner Bros. is celebrating Comic Con in their own special way. The studio is set to bring three films to Hall H next Saturday, Pacific Rim, The Hobbit and Man of Steel, and it seems they are releasing special posters for each one. Earlier this morning we found the Comic Con poster for the new Guillermo del Toro film, which gave us our first look at the giant mechs known as Jaegars, and we may get the first Superman poster later today, but now Peter Jackson is bringing us back to Middle Earth for his turn.
Posted on Jackson's Facebook page, the image is simply but beautiful, showing Gandalf, played by Ian McKellan, taking a stroll through Hobbiton as the sun shines through the clouds. Could he be on his way to get Bilbo Baggins ready for an adventure? Check out the poster below!
Based on J.R.R. Tolkein's first novel and a prequel of sorts to Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy, the story follows Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman) as he heads out of Bag End with a troop of dwarfs to rescue a long lost treasure from a dragon named Smaug (Benedict Cumberbatch). Much of the director's stellar cast from the first film has parts in the new movies, including Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Ian Holm, Christopher Lee, Hugo Weaving, Elijah Wood, and Andy Serkis. Evangeline Lilly, Richard Armitage, John Bell, Jed Brophy, Adam Brown, John Callen, Luke Evans, Stephen Fry, Ryan Gage, Mark Hadlow, Peter Hambleton, Barry Humphries, Stephen Hunter, William Kircher, Sylvester McCoy, Bret McKenzie, Graham McTavish, Mike Mizrahi, James Nesbitt, Dean O'Gorman, Lee Pace, Mikael Persbrandt, Conan Stevens, Ken Stott, Jeffrey Thomas, and Aidan Turner all have roles as well. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey arrives in theaters December 14th and we'll be reporting every second of their Comic Con panel next Saturday.

16 Hobbit Character Posters Debut At Comic Con
Tucked in a back corner of the exhibit hall at San Diego Comic Con was a big surprise for fans of Middle Earth. Lentricular, a.k.a. 3D posters, were on display for all the major characters in the upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, from returning faces like Cate Blanchett's Galadriel and Ian McKellen's Gandalf the Grey to newcomers like the full assortment of dwarves and, of course, Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins.
You can take a look at all 16 of the posters below. Of course, you're not going to get the full 3D effect, and there's some unavoidable glare thanks to their placement on the exhibit floor, but it's worth it to get our first real, up-close, one-on-one look at many of the brand-new characters who will populate the film.
