    Like the casting, Martin Freeman is great.



    Have they announced if this is going to be a two-part movie? I'm assuming it will be.

    Well, went ahead and looked it up myself, it is two parts. From New Line and Warner Bros.: "The two parts, titled The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and The Hobbit: There and Back Again,[SUP][/SUP] are being filmed back-to-back; principal photography began on 21 March 2011.[SUP][/SUP] They are scheduled to be released on 14 December 2012 and 13 December 2013, respectively"

    it IS being filmed in 3D -- good, because converting after the fact sucks

    Here's something for "Lord of the Rings" fans eagerly anticipating the upcoming movie "The Hobbit."
    In a recent post on his Facebook page, director Peter Jackson gave fans a sneak peek at some of the innovative techniques used to shoot the film in 3D. The movie is being made with 48 RED Epic digital cameras, and since it's shot in 3D, those cameras have to be paired and positioned a specific distance apart.
    Sounds easy? It isn't. While the RED cameras are a lot smaller than regular film cameras used in Hollywood, the lenses they use make it nearly impossible to place them close to each other. The filmmakers had to engage the help of 3ality Technica, a company that makes custom camera rigs, to create specialized mounts for the cameras used in "The Hobbit."
    The mounts, which allow one camera to be pointed straight at the subject while the other shoots the image reflected off a mirror, lets camera operators change the distance between the two camera lenses--called the interocular distance--easily. This keeps the lenses at a distance similar to our own eyes and should ensure that the 3D effect looks more believable and causes less fatigue.
    The movie is also shot at 5K resolution--more than six times that of 1080p--at 48 frames per second, which means "The Hobbit" could be one of the best-looking 3D films we'll ever see. Well, until Avatar 2 comes out, at least.
    Watch the video below for a behind-the-scenes peek at the making of "The Hobbit" and see more on Jackson's Facebook page.

    I guess if they don't fuck it up, it will be ok

    seems like only yesterday when they announced they were making Lord of the Rings trilogy, and that was like 14 years ago :tzone:

    The technology they are using is absolutely unbelievable. The framerate alone is a huge leap forward. It's never been done before on a major motion picture. The 5K resolution is staggering. When Warner Bros. recently restored "Wizard of Oz", they scanned in the negative at 8k and the final product covered 22 terabytes of data.

    my only problem with the LOTR is that Frodo and Sam hopped on some hawks and got taken home. why didnt the hawks just fly him to Mordor so he could dump the ring in the fire?

    They were eagles, and they were busy protecting Harrison Ford inside a refrigerator during an atom bomb detonation.

    :lol: I just watched that piece of shit movie the other day with my 9 year old daughter -- towards the end, she was pointing out all the ridiculous inconsistencies and plot holes on her own -- what a steaming pile of shit

    putting aside the millions of degree temperature and the radiation, I had to try to explain how a guy was uninjured after a blast threw the refrigerator he was in several miles away

    Some theories on that are summarized here: http://www.sean-crist.com/personal/pages/eagles/index.html

    I assumed the explanation was that Sauron and his "all seeing eye" gimmick would spot them in the air as long as he survived. That's pretty much dismissed in the link above, basically he chalks it up to lazy writing.
