The far left one looks strange... might be the hairdo... [In reply to] Can't Post

But overall, I think this puts to rest the "miniaturized human" theory that circulated after the Empire and Entertainment Weekly pic. Overall, they look great.

By the way, you beat me to the story. Tongue

Oh, I have to ask here... all pics we've seen have very dark, very distinct edges... is it the way the production pics are being taken, or should we expect the movie to look like that. For example, in this particular one, the dark edges emphasizes the prosthetics... not complaining, just saying. Wink

!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Wow! They all look great, I can see they are definitely going for a more diverse looking group of dwarves this time around! Shocked
Glad they're not going with the Gimli look for all 13 of them. Audience has to be able to distinguish between them.

Now, that's interesting... [In reply to] Can't Post

Well spotted!

So they are going for quite distinct looks and there is a colour difference there - Ori's red, it's too dark to tell with the others, on my screen at least. And they have got some of the angular dwarven styling in the costume to link to the previous films. And is it just me, or do they actually look dwarf proportion rather than human proportion?

Looks good, anyway - more please!

Do you think they're going for three at a time, then Thorin? Wink

Agreed [In reply to] Can't Post

They have a distinct look, and I think we should expect the movies too as well, much like the LOTR trilogy, but I don't think that will be a bad thing.

I think they look great! The more I look at the picture the more they sort of grow on me.

They look OK [In reply to] Can't Post

I definitely like the costumes, and I appreciate the efforts to make the three brothers look distinctive, but Nori's rocking one goofy hairstyle. I thought this was a Photoshop job for a moment. I'm also a bit troubled by their extremely short, goatee-like beards, which certainly aren't what I expect of Dwarves. The prosthetic noses and ears thankfully help to counter this. And is that the Book of Mazarbul in Ori's right hand...?

Practicality, I assume. [In reply to] Can't Post

I imagine it would be a nightmare to have to have these guys all sit in the chair for 5 hours every morning before shooting. They probably wanted something dwarven, but not too insane with the beards (except for Nori's crazy hair). Smile
Although I expect Gloin to probably look just as hairy as Gimli! Oh, and I think you might be right about the book in Ori's hand, nice catch! Those little details are always cool.

Well, they did offer the Glóin role to John Rhys Davies [In reply to] Can't Post

So I think you're spot on... Glóin will look a lot like Gimli. Who else is from that family? Thorin and Balin, I think?

I don't think that's a hairstyle on Nori.... [In reply to] Can't Post

... I think maybe it's a hat? Or something he's carrying on his back - axes perhaps? I think the outline of his (more normal) hairdo is visible in front of the pointy shape.

A long beard is a pain when you need to fight, travel, work and do other Middle-Earthy stuff [In reply to] Can't Post

Remember Gandalf was originally going to have a much longer beard, but they had to cut off a good deal of it. I can't remember whether it was because it was hard for Ian to move or act with it. Could have been both.

The description of the brothers is my favorite part [In reply to] Can't Post

"These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he's not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it's guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal. Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide any anyone who means harm to one of these brothers."

This sounds interesting. Seems like they're really trying to make the dwarves distinctive characters.

Definitely. [In reply to] Can't Post

I think in the book, they became one large mass of dwarves, and you don't hear from some of them much, besides Thorin and Balin. Then you have a only a few physical descriptions, like "the largest nose", or "the fattest dwarf". I imagine it was quite a challenge to give each of these dwarves a personality for the movies so they don't just fade into the background.

Don't forget the description of their basic character traits! [In reply to] Can't Post

These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other. Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he's not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins. Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it's guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal.

I really like the sound of that. Can't wait to see them on silver screen. :)

How good they did the right thing and kept all the 13 Dwarves.





Hold on a second, they have the same mother? Does that mean to imply they don't have the same father?
