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 returns to Comic-Con's Hall H this year with 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey,' part one of two films based on the J.R.R. Tolkien book of the same name, and prequel to Jackson's 'Lord of the Rings' trilogy.
Also making an appearance? These awesome new Lego mini-figures based on Jackson's films. Warning: Cuteness ahead might make you geek out.
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.
We hope you've got your nerdy overnight bags packed and ready to go because Comic-Con 2012 is fast approaching. We've given you the full rundown on TV panels, but what about all those amazing movie panels? Read on for a full schedule of movie panels and what to expect from the big studios this year.
The full schedule for Comic Con 2012 continues to trickle out and the day's events for Saturday, July 14th have been revealed.
And you thought Friday was busy! This must be one of the most intense and jam-packed days we've ever seen...and we're just looking at the movie and TV events! If you're attending this year and want to check out the film, television and comic panels, you better have priorities. This is an embarassment of geeky riches.
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.
When stories broke that ‘Battleship’ hottie Rihanna was offered the villain role in the upcoming ‘Fast & Furious’ sequel, it felt like a rumor … primarily because the source was Britain’s tabloid The Sun. Now the reputable Twitch says that ‘Immortals’ star Luke Evans actually is being offered the part, plugging into a role that was pitched to Jason Statham.
Since the late 1990's, there haven't been that many improvements to theater surround sound. We got THX theaters, which were followed by Dolby Digital, DTS, and SDDS, but since that wave of new sound, we haven't heard as much about audio as we have about the wave of digital productions and projection. But now there's Dolby Atmos. And it offers 128 channels of sound that might be featured on Peter Jackson's 'The Hobbit.'
