Exclusive from Warner Bros. and Denny’s, a look into the set and making of Beorn’s house. This was one of my absolute favorite parts of the book when I was a child. I am very excited to see how it is portrayed in the movie. The link to the video is here.

Let’s not kid ourselves: We all occasionally have some trouble telling after the dwarves of The Hobbit. There’s a lot of them! There’s really no shame in it.
Fear not, Tolkien lovers, The LOTR Project has come up with an awesome chart to help you identify them all in the film!
We’ve challenged you before to name all the dwarves in The Hobbit, and now — thanks to a new Hobbit banner — we can show them to you.
Here’s a vertical image of it, so you can see all the dwarves up close:
Here’s some hilarious commentary about all the dwarves from CinemaBlend.com:
I remain a little mystified by Kili, who looks like he’s wandered straight off the set of Gossip Girl– how can you even maintain that kind of artful stubble when you’re trekking through Middle Earth in search of a dragon? He’ll at least be easy to tell apart from the others, which is more than i can say for Thorin Oakenshield, who is the leader of the pack and clearly has that rugged hero thing going for him, but is also saddled with all the beard and fur that will make him hard to distinguish. Keep reading!
How do you like this Hobbit poster, featuring a full assemblage of dwarves? Their expressions range from “Wizard of Oz” munchkin silly, to inquisitive, to (in the case of Thorin Oakenshield) ruthlessly determined. There’s something for everyone.
Challege: Can you identify all of them by their dwarf names? Can you name all the actors? Speak friend and enter!

The first production video of 2012! Peter Jackson first starts off talking about shooting in… Lake Town! But unfortunately, he won’t show you that, which is just as well, because you don’t want to be spoiled with too much of the 2nd movie anyway.
This video mainly consists of all the location shooting throughout all of New Zealand, including Piopio, Central Otago, Queenstown, Te Anau, Twizel, and Nelson. So, if you’re wondering if New Zealand is truly that beautiful as they’ve shown in LOTR, then you’ll be able to see how real it is in this video. I’ve been there myself, so I definitely know it’s beautiful.
Plus, you get to see some of the cast: William Kirchner (Bifur), Aidan Turner (Kili), Dean O’Gorman (Fili), Adam Brown (Ori), Jed Brophy (Nori), Martin Freeman (Bilbo), Mark Hadlow (Dori), Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Graham McTavish (Dwalin), and Stephen Hunter (Bombur).
Andy Serkis, who’s work goes beyond that of Gollum, explains part of his job as 2nd Unit Director.
One interesting note: On day 127, they are exactly halfway through shooting (both films together).
