    As per The Encyclopedia of Arda:
    It would place Aragorn at 10 years old in Rivendell, or, at the very least, well on his way to his first meeting with Elrond, if we can assume that, for a while, Gilraen would have protected him in the North with the help of some brave Dunedain such as Halbarad.

    But as we know, Peter Jackson is fond of playing with events and chronology (like adding Elves at the battle of Helm's Deep), so all bets are off...

    Cheers,

    Jackson certainly has the wiggle room to add anything he wishes to in The Hobbit: An Unjustifiable Runtime.

    No kidding. From Armitage's interview linked in the same article:
    Damn, but the man seems as intense as Viggo, and I thought that was impossible. I look forward to the DVD commentaries to know exactly how many Throw It In moments Thorin had.

    Yes, please! I want to be able to read it all! (The thread, not the books. I've read the books.)

    I think a series of Silmarillion movies just got a whole lot more likely.

    Rowling will be writing a new series about Albus Potter too.

    The site has updated with an ODEON in Liverpool. That's encouraging.

    The claims are always all about how 48fps is the next gen idea for 3D films. With clearly no foresight for the idea that, after they're in theatres, no one will ever see them that way again. Blech.

    Directors care about the cinema experience, not the home theatre experience, what's your point?

    1. They don't care about 2D cinema?
    2. Yeah, those home theaters, with their HD screens and surround systems. None of the cinematic experience translates!

    It's not 1970. Home video is sort of important these days.

    Those track listings give a pretty specific idea of where the first film will end.

    “So ended the adventures of the Misty Mountains. Soon Bilbo’s stomach was feeling full and comfortable again, and he felt he could sleep contentedly, though really he would have liked a loaf and butter better than bits of meat toasted on sticks. He slept curled up on the hard rock more soundly than ever he had done on his feather-bed in his own little hole at home. But all night he dreamed of his own house and wandered in his sleep into all his different rooms looking for something that he could not find nor remember what it looked like.”

    Apologies if this has been covered in the previous 70-odd pages, but do we know how Jackson is going to reconcile the 'escape from the wood elves' section with his (pretty unnecessary) inclusion of the drinking contest in LOTR between Gimli and Legolas?

    In the latter, he pretty much implied that a) Elves don't really go in for booze, and b) when they do, they're impervious to it. Whereas obviously in the former we need the Elves to be big drinkers and the Steward to be a one-glass-and-asleep-on-the-table type.

    Are the gaolers going to be moving barrels of something other than wine? Or will they just not feel the ill effects and fall asleep?

    This has been worrying me. It shouldn't.

    I haven't heard, yet. It bothers me too.
    I'm more worried about
    spoiler, (open)
    Legolas and Tauriel rescuing the dwarves from the spiders, as shown in the Lego sets.
    though.
    I hope
    spoiler (open)
    it's just Lego being silly, though, and trying to include more elf mini figs in their sets, instead of another Bilbo.

    For me it's a tie between Gandalf (for nostalgia's sake) and Thorin (hello, eyes of steel - nay, mithril). Though my fondness for Armitage may colour my judgment a wee bit...
