While the eagerly awaited The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey isn’t slated to hit theaters this December, those traveling to SDCC will be treated with a special look at Peter Jackson’s latest adaptation.
Peter Jackson has released another video blog from the set of Laketown.
Before you get too excited, we’re talking about Sting, the sword, not Sting, the singer, although Sting the singer appearing in The Hobbit would be pretty interesting. A new picture has surfaced that shows Martin Freeman with his signature weapon.
Peter Jackson and company have released another behind the scenes look at the production of The Hobbit, where Jackson gives you a look at location scouting and shooting.
When it comes to adaptations, there are two ways you can go about it – a really good adaptation, or a really bad one. In the case of The Adventures of Tintin, Steven Spielberg and Peter Jackson have done something quite different – done an adaptation that is better than the source material.
If you are headed out to the theater this week to catch Tintin, be on the lookout for The Hobbit trailer, which is supposed to play before the movie. And while you are waiting, take the jump to check out Martin Freeman in his Bilbo Baggins garb.
I’m not really sure that a movie that is an adaptation of a very well known book really needs an official synopsis, but Peter Jackson and company have released the first official synopsis about what we can expect when The Hobbit arrives in theaters next year.
Peter Jackson has posted a new production diary on his Facebook page where he and his crew talk up the 3D process.
This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to shooting digital, I just spent two semesters studying 3D production and the process, and it is mind boggling complex for a gimmick that probably won’t have a long life in the theater.
Another poster for the Adventures of Tintin has arrived, and it is a spectacular image, even if it does have the weird looking cg characters.
I half expected this to come a few days earlier, but with Comic Con upon us, now is the perfect time for all of the Hobbit dwarves to make their appearance.
If you are lined up for Hall H expecting a surprise The Hobbit appearance by Peter Jackson, you might as well give up your spot to some Twilight Fan right now, as Jackson says no to a Comic-Con appearance.
Good news and bad news today. Bad news is that we won’t be doing any Hobbit presentation at Comic Con in San Diego this year. New Line and Warner Bros were very happy to support a presentation, but I declined, simply because I felt it was too early. There’s so much more of the films still to shoot. I just wanted to get that out there, because I’ve seen various references to the possibility of something Hobbity at Comic Con. Hate to disappoint anyone. But something tells me we will be there in force next year. Now for the good news… We’ve just finished a new video blog, covering a little more of the first block of shooting. So please enjoy this—at least you don’t have to travel to San Deigo to see it! I’ve been on the go since wrapping the first shooting block, but I’m about to settle down and get into the much delayed 20 Questions. I’ve a few half-written and will get those done very, very soon! I promise! Cheers, Peter J
