Tom of Finland director Dome Karukoski returns with another biopic about an influential creative mind, this time turning his sights to famed Lord of the Rings writer J. R. R. Tolkien. Does the film do justice to the man or is it more focused on his legendary work?
While dividing Tolkien's most childish and thinnest material into three films seems like a strange decision, Peter Jackson makes it mostly work with The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which still manages to be a lot of fun. That new high-frame rate 3D? Not so much.
We talk to the lucky actor to get the high profile role of Thorin Oakenshield in Peter Jackson's kick off to The Hobbit trilogy, British actor Richard Armitage about working with Jackson, being on set in Middle Earth while being a huge Tolkien fan, and Andy Serkis asking the actor to go the extra mile for gritty realism.
TT Games' latest licensed Lego adventure follows the familiar chronology of the film trilogy, but there's still fun in the expected journey.
The Hobbit, the highly anticipated film based on J.R.R. Tolkien's beloved book, has finally begun shooting today in New Zealand. Late yesterday evening, two teaser photos of director Peter Jackson posing in the iconic circular entrance to Bilbo's Shire crib, were released on Jackson's Facebook page.
