'the great serpent, Smaug' [In reply to] Can't Post

That sounds promising. Does this mean they'll be retaining Tolkien's snakelike design instead of converting Smaug into the stereotypical 'winged tyrannosaurus' seen in most dragon films?

I agree [In reply to] Can't Post

Not Thorin as I envisaged him when reading the book as a child, but his image here is chilling. One can see him holding the orcs at bay as they attempt to get into the Lonely Mountain. And confronting the Great Goblin and Thranduil.

He's going to be awesome facing the Master of Laketown and who will come off best, Beorn or him?

Seriously I've to wait until Xmas 2012 Frown

Congratulations TORn on the exclusive Smile

Offtopic but ... [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm fairly sure that he will look something like this.

Much of the looks in the LOTR movies was based on his illustrations and as he is back in the production again I'm pretty sure we can expect something similar with the look of Smaug.

Congrats TORN for the exclusive :-D [In reply to] Can't Post

Thorin doesn't look too old but I see some grey hair Wink

I hope everyone is satisfied :)

Did anyone noticed Orcrist looks like a bigger version of Sting? I like that.

I wonder if it will glow blue when orcs will be arround :)


There is always hope

Looks great! [In reply to] Can't Post

An intense, commanding presence for the leader, just what was required. Add to that his deep voice so I think we can expect a stellar performance from him, Armitage's casting really seems spot on. Personally I don't think his age is a problem at all, besides if he portrays a middle-aged dwarf (they live up to ~400 years or so, IIRC) he really need not look old(ish) by human standards.

Did anyone notice he seems to have diamonds or something embedded onto his lower front teeth?

And again the costume is fantastic. I love the design of Orcrist, too. Simply beautiful.

Just the highlights [In reply to] Can't Post

And dwarves have an average life expectancy of around 250 years, though some live huge lengths longer (Dain is described as being certainly geriatric at 252 and yet Dwalin lives to i believe 340)

Thank you for honoring TORn, PJ! [In reply to] Can't Post

We love you too!

My first impression of Thorin is very positive. They've decided to make him younger, and I can see the reasons behind the decicion and accept it.

Plus, I think we should have buried Tolkien in a larger coffin, he probably cant turn very well in his. -Rossmonster

Woohoo [In reply to] Can't Post

Congrats to TORn for getting this exclusive!!!

And what a great picture. He is looking really sturdy. A guy who can lead a group into battle and finish the quest to the Lonely Mountain.

And I love the group pic. Changed my desktop picture immediately (although I have to say that I am missing Kili's wavy hair)

Small, slender human fingers is what you want? [In reply to] Can't Post

First they're too human-like, then..... Tongue

And the ears are needed because of the big wigs. I could live without them, but I assume they looked goofy with their ears invisible or something, and they decided to give them fake ears.

Initially I thought that he has something on his teeth too, but they are too white and they reflect the lights from the studio where the photo was taken Laugh

Just click and see the bigger version of the picture and you will see what I mean :)

Oh come on- he's hardly ancient [In reply to] Can't Post

He may look intense and angry but he still looks young and like Richard Armitage, so anyone who's willing to look past a tiny bit of face fuzz will see he's still an attractive human. It's hardly like he looks like Gimli.

To be honest i'm almost relieved he doesn't look too dwarven. If he had the full works done to him and it was just his more or less black hair that was the issue i'd have a hell of a job removing him from my mental imaginings, but this will be easy. In fact, looking at him, am i the only one to get a whiff of Jack Sparrow?

Yes, Theoden too looks too young [In reply to] Can't Post

But Bernard's acting is so amazing I don't give a damn.

Also, Galadriel isn't pretty enough, Saruman isn't White anymore, Boromir isn't at all like in the book's description. Too bad I can't see their wrongedness over the awesome that shines from those performances.

And suddenly the Tornadoes saw afar off a greenlight, as it were a cloud with a living heart of flame;
and they knew that this was no vision only, but that PJ had made a new thing: The Hobbit, the Film that Is.

I think it is just a lighting artifact [In reply to] Can't Post

I've seen a close up of his face and I think what you're seeing is not diamonds but lighting bouncing off his teeth.

Though it is one way to display your wealth - diamonds in the teeth.

I think he looks wonderfully dwarven... [In reply to] Can't Post

...also, he doesn't look like Jack Sparrow, or Khal Drogo, or Blackbeard, or a Klingon (boy am I sick of hearing about Klingons!). He looks like Thorin as PJ intends it, which is all that matters.
