The Hobbit Fan Event

Nov 4 • by Ursa • No Commentsthe Hobbit

Bellow, you can watch the recorded version of a livestream The Hobbit events could watch yesterday. The celebration was happening at four cities worldwide at the same time – Wellington, Los Angeles, New York and London (that’s where Lee was), and fans could watch the event live on youtube.

Here are some of the highlights if you don’t have an hour to watch the entire video:
• New sneak peek has been released! Click here to watch it.
• Lee and Orlando both showed some nice dance moves. Check them out here.
• Peter Jackson’s production blog video includes some funny scenes with Lee. Watch it here.
ashwin911 was a part of the audience in London and kindly shared a short video recorded in theatre. You should give it a look.

Also, Ed Sheeran’s I See Fire video was shown at the event. The song was written for the closing credits of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. “We have a tradition in our Tolkien films of having a song over the closing credits. It’s very important that the song feels right for the world of the movie – and also carries the emotional resonance of the end of that particular film,” Peter commented. Ed wrote the song right after watching the movie, so he could write from the perspective of the audience. You can pre-order it on iTunes.

The second installment of Peter Jackson’s prequel is going to hit the cinemas this December.

Behind the scenes of The Hobbit Trilogy: Production video number 11

Jul 2 • by Ursa • No Commentsthe Hobbit

Some of the Hobbit cast members have already left the set, but most of the actors are still busy training and making sure we will never forget the upcoming films. Peter Jackson officially announced the cast will NOT attend Comic Con International in San Diego this year, because there is still so much left to be done. In his latest video he shared on facebook, he showed us around the set and we were given a sneak peek of the preparations for some scenes. Lee Pace is briefly in the video, but it’s still very worth watching – see yourself why.

Lee Pace: In his realm, you are at his mercy

Jun 30 • by Ursa • No CommentsInterviews, the Hobbit

As we previously reported, Lee’s been featured in the August issue of Empire (on newsstands now). The 13 pages long article takes us to New Zealand, which is currently full of dwarfs, elves and hobbits. The cast is slowly wrapping though. Peter Jackson yesterday shared on his facebook: “A day after saying goodbye to Gandalf and Tauriel, it was time to farewell Legolas. What a great day it was, with Orlando battling a serious Orc for all 12 hours of shooting – part of the Battle of the 5 Armies for the third Hobbit movie.”
The article also features the first The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug promotional image of Lee Pace as Thranduil, posing with a sword that has been made from a single piece of metal, with the handle carved into it.

Jackson tells Empire that “Thranduil has a contempt of his own for what is going on out there.”
“The delightful Lee Pace welcomes Empire into his trailer with a warm smile, high praise for the magazine’s ongoing coverage of The Hobbit and the offer of herbal tea,” Empire shares. Lee told them he sees Legolas’ father as “the same way that a tiger in a jungle is a dangerous thing” and admitted he has taken overnight hikes into the New Zealand wildness to get into an elven headspace. “In his realm, you are at his mercy,” he muses. “There is a simplicity to that. That corrupted forest (Mirkwood) is very much a reflection of who he is.” Talking about his inspirations, has called upon Oberon and The Fisher King.
“We should mention he is 3,000 years old,” Empire reminds us, “something of a mind-bogging concept for Pace.” The actor who plays the Elvenking comments: “He’s incredibly old but incredibly sensitive. It’s like he’s taken too many naps.”
“And yet he has a reputation of being the greatest fighter in the Middle Earth. His threat, thinks Pace, imposes interesting things on this movie. “He doesn’t readily choose to use his force.” The question arises of what will stir him out of his splendid, dragon-like isolation,” the journalist nicely concludes.

As Orlando Bloom says: “The elves always steal the show. In the best way.”
