Dominion's Coverage of Hobbit Press Conference Can't Post



10.19am: A written statement from Jackson said he regretted not being able to attend but was effectively under a health version of "house arrest".

10.18am: Spooks star Richard Armitage, who plays one of the dwarves, is seated to Freeman's left.

10.15am: The stars, including British actor Martin Freeman and Irishman James Nesbitt, have taken their seats at a long table at the Stone Street Studios in Mirimar, Wellington. Freeman, who will play Bilbo Baggins, is seated right in the middle.

They changed the picture in the article [In reply to] Can't Post

The new photo features all fourteen of them (Armitage is hidden behind Brown, though).

Despite the anti-climactic conference, that picture put a smile on my face.

yeah, the new picture is nice [In reply to] Can't Post

still hoping for a video though


..The land of long-forgotten name:
......no man may ever anchor near;
..No steering star his hope may aim,
......for nether Night its marches drear,
..And waters wide no sail may tame,
......with shores encircled dark and sheer.

..O! Haven where my heart would be!
......the waves beat upon thy bar
..For ever echo endlessly,
......when longing leads thy thought afar

No live video stream? [In reply to] Can't Post

While understandable, it's a bummer that the most important person is not present, Peter Jackson.

That Aidan Turner and Rob Kazinsky are front and center behind Martin Freeman, and Richard Armitage is in the back, hidden by Adam Brown.

Is this all? [In reply to] Can't Post

A bit of a disappointment, really. I was hoping for an announcement of most (if not all) of the rest of the principle cast.

A snippet from Martin Freeman... [In reply to] Can't Post

Just heard this on Newstalk ZB: Martin was asked about the 'bad luck' that had plagued the production so far, to which he replied, "There have been bits of bad luck around it, but we're all ready to go ... as soon as 2015 rolls around..."

:D

Celebrimbor: "Pretty rings..."
Dwarves: "Pretty rings..."
Men: "Pretty rings..."
Sauron: "Mine's better."

"Ah, how ironic, the addictive qualities of Sauron’s master weapon led to its own destruction. Which just goes to show, kids - if you want two small and noble souls to succeed on a mission of dire importance... send an evil-minded b*****d with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

And a snippet from Richard Armitage [In reply to] Can't Post

who said at the conference that he played an elf in a stage production of LotR when he was young alongside a papier mache Gandalf!

Do you think his Mum has pictures? [In reply to] Can't Post

Because if she does, I expect we'll be seeing them before long!

It's fun to see the photos of the fabled news conference, but they don't seem to have said very much, do they?

and I also bet they're locked securely in a drawer, LOL!

But Armitage has always been a fan of Tolkien. This must be a dream come true for him.

And that's a fun picture. Wonder how long RA's been growing his beard?
