Word out of Comic Con 2012 was that Peter Jackson is thinking about turning 'The Hobbit' - his two part prequel to the 'Lord of the Rings Trilogy' and adaptation of the J.R.R. Tolkien classic - into a trilogy. This was not just idle talk as he and the studios are now in "deep negotiations."
After the Comic-Con 2012 panel for 'The Hobbit' Peter Jackson met with reporters and was asked about the rumors that they're working on some additional filming and if that might mean there could actually be three 'Hobbit' films. Here's what he had to say...
After Warner Bros. released 10 snapshots from 'The Hobbit' movie and Peter Jackson unveiled the latest poster for Comic-Con 2012 on his Facebook page, fans of both the book and 'The Lord of the Rings' franchise have been waiting to get their hands on the next sneak peek. Well, it's finally here in the form of a lengthy scrolling image that reveals 10 scenes from the upcoming movie (the first two are shown above).
Peter Jackson has wrapped principal photography on ‘The Hobbit,’ notching 266 shooting days under his belt. He celebrated by posting the above shot to the movie’s Facebook page, along with a message for his fans.
We're certainly not kidding when we say that this is an extensive look inside production of 'The Hobbit.' Why? Because the video is nearly fifteen minutes long. But if you're a 'Lord of the Rings' fan, a 'Hobbit' fan or just a fantasy fan in general, you'll want to see this in-depth how things work on set. It's not just Peter Jackson putting everything together on his own. It takes a marvelous and talented team in order to do so.
Today at CinemaCon, Warner Bros. and Peter Jackson premiered 10 minutes of footage from 'The Hobbit,' shown in the new 48 frames-per-second (fps) 3D method of filmmaking, a technique Jackson and friend James Cameron have championed as the next generation of moviegoing.
Today's reactions to the 48fps have been vocal and varied, from those focusing on the footage of 'The Hobbit' itself, to others complaining about the look of 48fps, which doubles the frame rate of the industry standard 24fps.
Color many people green with envy. For the lucky group of people who are out in Las Vegas right now attending this year's CinemaCon (which is basically an industry equivalent of Comic-Con) 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' director Peter Jackson is treating the them to some special new footage. It shouldn't be hard to guess what he's going to be showing them.
