New images from the Desolation of Smaug 2014 calendar
More wallpaper for me!
I smile very time I'm reminded that Stephen Fry is in these films.
Sorry guys, I just strongly dislike Beorn's appearance. We'll see how it plays out onscreen, but he's one of my favorite characters in the book.
Hopefully he'll be in bearform most of the time and I won't have to worry.
eh, he won't be the only shoddy character design.
A DOS calendar without Smaug pictures?
I thought he was the voice of the Goblin King? So he's playing another character as well?
Yes and no. He's the Master of Lake-Town, but the Goblin King was played (at least voiced) by Barry Humphries. Here's Fry from those calendar pics.
Thranduil: The Desolation of Clothes
i'm assuming that's right before he bursts into song. i mean it would be weird for there to be 2 songs in the first 30 minutes of the movie, and then none for the remaining 9 hours.
I hope he morphs into David Bowie at some point.
He's gonna darned well show us who's the real Goblin King under the mountain!
Currently in the middle of watching the EE of TUJ which I bought on iTunes (due to it not being available to rent annoyingly) and so far nothing major has been added. There was a couple of lines and shots added during Bilbo's narration of Thranduil's homage to Thror?/Thrain? .. whichever it is meant to be that added to the Dwarf/Elves divide.
Most surprising is the shortening of the scene in which Rhadagast finds the Company. He no longer has a smoke of 'old toby' to calm himself down.
Naked Dwarves in the fountain = WTF
Are they at least singing while in the fountain?
at least you guys have more time in middle-earth
Question for you Tolkien know it alls. When did Saruman turn evil? In The Journey Begins we see him at the White Council with Elrond and Gandalf and Galadriel. Given his reluctance was he fully turned at that point and working against them?
The White council Saurman lusted after the ring for himself but it can be argued that he was compromised in his character from when he arrived in middle earth with Gandalf. He envied Gandalf.
Way back on this page I did a lil attempt at a size for Samug. Soemone else did also on Theonering.net I kinda did it right.
New update from PJ on his facebook page

A few other press clippings, from theonering.net this time.
Before and after make-up comparison of our Dwarrow Company:
A set visit of Lake-Town (the detail! dears, the detail!):
And a two-parter on Evangeline Lilly and Tauriel:
Lots of interesting info about the filming process overall, and I must admit that I'm warming up about Tauriel, myself. Can't wait to see her on screen to form my own opinion of the character.
A little less than 2 months! Holy moly.
