Peter Jackson's facebook page Can't Post

I'm sure this will get moved once it gets posted - but Peter Jackson has just announced on his facebook page that he's going to be posting some video from The Hobbit set.

Anyone else having the best Sunday ever?

What?! [In reply to] Can't Post

Awesome. Can't wait to see what's there, maybe they'll give us a glimpse of some of the dwarves or Gandalf at least. Maybe a casting announcement?

Thanks to you, sir and/or madame and/or thing!! Smile

I doubt we'll be getting a weekly update as with Kong, but anything will be welcome.

I would rather be watching Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit" and Ridley Scott's "Prometheus"...it's going to be a long few years.

Can we assume [In reply to] Can't Post

that any videos PJ posts on facebook will be re-posted here at TORn?

I'm only asking in case there would be any reason PJ wouldn't want them re-posted or something like that.


..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

I'm sure that anything Pete posts [In reply to] Can't Post

will be linked to from TORN's home page and posted on the discussion boards as well. That kind of information is too juicy to pass up!

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.

I imagine any such content... [In reply to] Can't Post

... will also be posted on The Hobbit Blog (which is some sort of (official!) pseudo-website-thing).

Well [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm in Ohio, USA, and right now it is 3:15 AM on Monday morning. So that should put NZ time around 8:15 PM on Monday evening.

I wonder if we'll get this video before they call it a night.

REALLY GENEROUS [In reply to] Can't Post

   



- of Pete to do this for the fans again. What a thoughtful guy; a little water in the desert never hurt none. Smile

Hope it turns into a monthly (or at least quarterly) thing because it's unlikely to turn into the weekly updates we got on Kong.

My only reservation is really that when you get a fanbase so desperate for bits of solid information as on The Hobbit movies, it would probably be better in future if these kind of "watch this space" announcements were tied to a more specific time frame, i.e: "coming soon, in the next 24/48 hrs." instead of being open ended.

Because he doesn't specify, we'll probably get a fortnight of fervent speculation now before the video actually appears, which is a shame.

Also very frustrating.

Grrrrrrr. Mad

I'm sorry... I can't tell if you're serious or joking [In reply to] Can't Post

Assuming you're serious, no, there isn't any "competition" between TORn and The Hobbit Blog, because the former is a fan site run by fans of Tolkien's works and of the films, while the latter is an official site run by the studios. The question of the two sites competing against each other does not arise Smile

Funny... [In reply to] Can't Post

"Watch this space", as if we're not already checking it and a few others, several times a day. Laugh It would be nice if Sir Ian McKellen could throw us a bone. It's been 10 days since his last update.

"There is a long road yet," said Gandalf. "But it is the last road," said Bilbo.
