and I am pretty glad, 'ecstatic' in fact to hear you saying those 'rumored' actors are not Bilbo, would have liked to hear however that Cruise isn't involved at all. If he isn't involved at all, it would pretty much confirm my post on the same topic about Mr.Cruise though.
Anyway good to hear also we are sticking to the same Gollum model, i thought the interpretation of him in the LOTR film trilogy to be fairly spot on, with Tolkien's descriptions of the creature in the books. You would naturally imagine more strands of hair on him, but I have every faith now that in my own head that too is cleared up.
As for 3D, I can't say I would have been in full favour of it, at-least not yet. As here in Ireland (at-least close to me) we don't have any 3d enabled theaters yet, sure we had/have IMAX, but one IMAX theater has closed in Belfast, leaving only one IMAX theater in the whole of Ireland which is in Dublin.
It reminds me of Nintendo's logical stance in the Video Game market in 2005, with Sony and Microsoft jumping into bed so early with HD T.V enabled video game consoles, whereas Nintendo remained with SD output for the Wii video game console, the likes of Zelda and Mario played perfectly normal and was immensely enjoyable in SD and proved people didn't need HD (yet) to enjoy them. Not only that, with HD ready T.V's in Ireland (or maybe worldwide) people hadn't jumped as quick with high def format and in 2006- SD remained (and probably still does) in most peoples homes.
