hobbit-reaction-reaction-videoIn a delightful turn of the table, actors Lee Pace (Thranduil), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), and Evangeline Lilly (Tauriel) give their reaction to a reaction video of two of the staff members from TheOneRing.net, Kili and Fili.  Not only that, but the actors do so while in costume!

Thanks to Peter Jackson for filming it.

The Goblin King is kind of gross

There really is no other way to spin it: The Goblin King is NOT a good-looking creature. That doesn’t mean you should judge him, of course. Remember Shrek? It’s the inside that counts…

Except when you’re dealing with action figures. You can be superficial, then, and you can root for Thorin Oakenshield to smite his ruin upon the mountainside.

Gandalf: Far to the East, over ranges and rivers…

Elessar: Another beautiful look at what New Zealand has to offer.

Calisuri: One of the days, we all need to get our butts to Middle-earth…err…New Zealand. Simply breathtaking.

JW: You can tell in this trailer that they’re making it known that New Zealand is back as Middle-earth, an important selling point, as New Zealand was as much a cast member as any of the people in The Lord of the Rings films, and people will come back to see more of it as MIddle-earth in the Hobbit films. Just imagine how different things would be if those plans to move production away from New Zealand would have happened! We’re so fortunate everything worked out for this project to be done the right way.

Rumour grows of a shadow in the east, whispers of a nameless fear. In Dol Guldur, an ancient evil lurks?

Elessar: Dol Guldur look as creepy from a distance as I could have imagined it would look.

Calisuri: Wow – what an amazingly well conceived view of Dol Guldur. Very similar to Weathertop, but much cooler!

Calisuri: Pretty sure we could not get through a trailer without some kind of ‘running’ across a landscape shot.

Entmaiden: very reminiscent of the moment between Frodo and Gandalf in Fellowship. Nice shot to bring the audience back into Middle-earth. Of course, some of us never left :)

Thror’s Map of the Lonely Mountain is revealed.

Entmaiden: the Map! So excited. I saw the display at Comic Con at the WETA booth, and it is indeed awesome.

Calisuri: I’m expecting a lot of stockings to be stuffed with map replicas this holiday season! Now if they can get the Moon Letters to work, they’ll make an additional billion dollars!

JW: I was so excited eleven years ago to see this map in The Lord of the Rings – especially to have Gandalf look at it with such interest. Glad to see it in the trailer, and it will be fun to see it in use in The Hobbit films.

Hobbit recipes from Warner Bros

In anticipation of The Hobbit release, Warner Bros. has assembled this INCREDIBLE site feature with Middle Earth recipes. See here!


Here’s what TheOneRing.Net had to say about it:

Warner Bros. has released a new site specializing in the tastes of Middle-earth. Featuring such categories as sweets & treats, main courses and breakfast foods, it also provides a way for users to submit recipes. Steven Hunter’s Bombur is featured as the face of Middle-earth culinary delights and his cookbook is a linked tab as well. That may even be a clue into the character but more than that, it is a sign that WB wants to have a little fun with its December tent-pole movie.
The official description says:

Recipes From Middle-earth
Fellow travelers, we welcome you to sample this collection of recipes for authentic Middle-earth cuisine cultivated by the Dwarf Company’s heartiest appetite. Give each dish a rating, and submit your own recipes for others to enjoy and appraise too!

Huge Hobbit premiere planned in Wellington, New Zealand

New Zealand has become practically synonymous with the Lord of the Rings and Hobbit films, thanks to the extraordinary work of Peter Jackson and company. After a nine-year hiatus, the next Tolkien chapter is finally ready for the big screen, so what better place to have the premiere than in Wellington?

Here’s a report, courtesy of the spectacular staff at theonering.net, Middle Earth’s premiere site now and forever:

In just about 2 months from now, travelers from around the world will descend upon Wellington to celebrate the release of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Some will be cast and crew who worked on the film, others will be studio executives involved in the creation of the film, and still others will be an International Press Corp writing stories about the film. And mingling amongst all these creative types will be fans from around New Zealand and the rest of the world, including TheOneRing.net, and you can be amongst all this excitement by joining our tour. You will find further details at TORn’s Hobbit Premiere Tour.

Viggo Mortensen Sings for Geeks

What a treat this audience received when they went to see a screening of the LOTR trilogy (extended editions) at the Coolidge Theater in Boston.  They actually had awarded him the Coolidge Award. So, he spent a couple of minutes talking about his LOTR fun facts, and then probably the best part was the last 30 seconds of the video.
