I wanna see Smaug. :wub: But somehow I doubt he'll be revealed very soon.

Since when was the movie called "The Hobbit: The Unexpected Journey?" Because that's what it's called on IMDb now.

I guess that's because it's still going to be 2-parter? Last I heard, anyway...

Nori's hair-style has me worried, too. :mellow: Seriously, what's up with that?

And I'm also in agreement that these dwarves are near beardless, which is so not cool it just isn't pleasant...

Dori's single-edged square sword is lame, but I guess it's nice to see a dwarf with something besides an axe or hammer.

Or a flint-lock weapon of some kind... <_<

Apparently, Smaug, Sauron the Necromancer, and Sherlock Holmes are the same person :P

It's because it's a two parter.

The film company is not allowed to use material from the Simmarillion, they have to use the Hobbit and the LOTR only. I assumed the second part would be a bridge film, but apparently they don't like that idea so the script is actually going to split the Hobbit. According to wiki it will split at the defeat of Smaug, which I guess is logical but I would have thought that the Hobbit was too thin a book to split. However the LOTR contains a ton of information to supplement the hobbit. If I remember correctly theres a prologue chapter that explains what Gandalf was doing, what happened to Mirkwood etc? The film will probably draw from this.

Perhaps it'll end with the Death of Smaug (COME ON, that's not a friggin' spoiler). It seems odd to end the first part with the Battle of the Five Armies after that since well, after that, that's the end of the Hobbit. Maybe they should call Part 2 'Unfinished Tales' or something.

Can I just say that the face prosthetics that didn't look too weird on Gimli look downright uncanny valley on these guys? I swear they're creeping me out a little. Maybe it's the funky lighting and backdrop, I dunno.

But these beards are great improvement over the others.

Still waiting for Dwalin...

Wait.

Those are actual pictures of the actors? They look like action figures or something... O.o

Um, they probably are fake?

Gimli's nose was fake. So was Gandalf's (at lest part of it).

Anyway, yeah, those dwarves are a bit more like it. :)

That was my first thought as well, actually... Something about them...

I think partly why the dwarves look weird is because of the after effects that have been added to the photographs. They will look better on screen.

I'm kinda hoping they get all the cloaks right. I liked the cloaks.

Dwarves do not exist, therefore they can look the way you want to.

This. These are weird, staged photoshoots with funny lighting and crazy silver sci-fi backdrops that have been Photoshopped to within an inch of their lives. They'll look much better out in New Zealand where they belong.

Yeah, I know. But the ones in that first photo look so much like action figures that I could practically see the joints.

One day I'm going to visit Middle-Earth, I swear it. Maybe I can swing by that other island down there while I'm at it. What's it called? Austrasia? :P
