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...
Trolls! Dwarves! Maniacs in beards! But enough about the audience here at San Diego Comic-Con, let's talk about Warner Bros.'s closer to its massive two-and-a-half-hour panel: 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey."
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).
Much like how everyone in the world saw the 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy, everyone in the world is surely going to see 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' and its follow-up, 'The Hobbit: There and Back Again.' Although this makes advertising for these films feel ever-so-slightly redundant, it's impossible to look upon this new Comic Con poster and not get that chill down your spin: we're going back to Middle Earth this December.
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.
