The Hobbit cover

01.28.2009

Empire have unveiled the cover of their next issue and on it you can find what I guess is technically a first look at THE HOBBIT. The Guillermo Del Toro movie is of course years away but I know how you guys love your elves and your dragons and people with names like Radagast the Brown and when people talk about the one ring, so I figured you would lap this up. I don't know why I'm not more excited about this movie - it has so many awesome ingredients. I guess it's a taste thing but I think Orlando Bloom and his super epic Middle Earth line delivery wrecked this entire canon for me: It is... the horses... they're scared... it must be... could it be... -- OH MY GOD SPIT IT OUT YOU SPAZ

If you never read the book, it comes before the events of LORD OF THE RINGS and follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins who travels to the Lonely Mountain with a bunch of dwarves to reclaim treasure taken from them, by a dragon.
Extra Tidbit: Philippa Boyens who worked on the screenplay for all of the LORD OF THE RINGS movies is down for THE HOBBIT too.

LEGOLAS ROCK!!!

Orlando Bloom was one of the reasons why LOTR was one heck of a movie. Not one actor was out of line. It was really good that Bloom had limited dialogue because i can't stand him in POTC.

Eh, I'm glad The Hobbit wasn't made before LOTR. As its generally a kids book, it would have been made more for kids, then it would likely make a killing, then they'd want to go after LOTR but lighten it up to appeal to the same kids that went to see The Hobbit. So, I'm glad. This way, maybe, the producers and such will be more happy to let some violence into the movie. The book, even for being for younger kids, has plenty of it!

Loved the book and was somewhat surprised that the Hobbit was not made BEFORE Lord of the Rings. Nevertheless, I think it should be good. It has Del Torro and Jackson. I'm sold.

I'm sure i'll enjoy The Hobbit more so than the LotR films because Del Torro is eight times the filmmaker Jackson is.

one ring

I loooooved the book (Lord of the rings) but didn't like the movie. It's way too serious and epic. The book is more light hearted and the characters are more 3 dimensional and cooler. e.g. The friendship between Gimli and Legolas (only some poor one liners in the movie) and lots of other stuff.
I never was really into "the hobbit" but I have faith in del Toro to make this a cool movie....

I'm so glad I'm not a prick who lets the delivery of lines from an elf ruin one of the most magical movie going experiences for me.

Dude below has a point, and to condescend to those who love the films by suggesting your taste is superior, it's a good thing we can't slam the writers of the articles in these posts because I'm sure some people would have a few choice words. Now if you said maybe it's a lack of taste thing...

It's funny, but there's been a lot of talk lately on sites like this how the fantasy film trend is starting to die out. However, you know that as soon as this and the next Potter movie hit the studios are going to be all over any fantasy book they can get the rights to again.

Hobbitses

LOTR is my #1 film of all-time so throw me into that geek category. I'm very excited about The Hobbit (it's been years since I've last read the book but I remember it being a fun adventure story. Light-hearted and exciting.) I'm VERY excited about the film and wish it wasn't so far away.

AND SO IT BEGINS...

Lord Of The Rings are to date my best 3 flicks of all time. And to actually know that in 2 years I'll be watching a LOTR movie in cinemas again is awesome. Still not so sure if Del Toro can do this the way it should be but with Peter Jackson on his side I'm confident things will turn out fine. Cant wait!

I've never read it. I tried to read THE HOBBIT, but I thought it was boring and stopped. However, I am interested in the movies, seeing as how it's Del Toro and I liked the Lord of the Rings movies.

However, I do agree that if you've never heard of THE HOBBIT and are a fan of the Lord of the Rings movies and don't know where THE HOBBIT fits into the storyline...then you you must've been living under a rock.

Who decides what articles to write? Are you assigned these articles or do you volunteer to write them? I've seen a lot of negative energy in a lot of these articles and you have a problem with them let somebody who enjoys it write it.

"If you never read the book"

I can't believe you would even suggest that anyone who reads this post or reads anything Tolkien related however vague it may be, would not have read this.

We are geeks...this is like middle school requirement.
