same content but slightly different design [In reply to] Can't Post

very insignificant differences between the two - surely to do with different licensing arrangements, ratings systems, etc. in different countries.

I think this is the uk site. [In reply to] Can't Post

I don't think it's uncommon to have different domains for different countries. As I said in another post, there are slight differences between the two. And for some countries, of course, the language would be different.

*puts on sunglasses* Cool

(reference)

For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much -- the wheel, New York, wars, and so on -- while all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man, for precisely the same reasons. -- Douglas Adams

Exactly. [In reply to] Can't Post

I was actually looking up costume reference for Fili, so I was happy to find some shots of Fili and Kili during the barrel scene when they're coatless. There, you get to see that both Fili and Kili have padding, like the other dwarves, and the thicker hand prosthetics, which makes them look, well, more dwarven! (Personally, I think Fili is the very picture of a handsome young dwarf.) [url= "http://heirsofdurin.files.wordpress.com/2012/06/untitled-60-copy.jpg"]Here's a shot of Fili, here's a shot of Kili.

I also hope that there will be endless jokes at Kili's expense about his lack of a beard and general , especially given the dynamic that audition packet told us they were going for with them.

Fili looks dwarven [In reply to] Can't Post

Kili, i am still not sold on it. For me he just looks like a man. I think its nothing to do with his body as like anyone elses they can do what they think will make him look more dwarven. I just dont think his face looks particularly dwarven, maybe due to lack of beard or just his bone structure, or both.

I dont think it will detract from the film or anything, just if i think about how he looks he just isnt a dwarf to me, haha. The main thing is that his performance is excellent and very convincing which i am sure it will be, this is the main thing after seeing them all for a minute or so that will be the deciding factor.

Wow! [In reply to] Can't Post

What brilliant surprise! Everything looks great! Personally I never had much of a problem with the Wargs from the trilogy but I could see why people didn't like them so its cool to see a more "traditional" design thats looks suitably intimidating and almost demonic. It's definitely another warg in the background of the burning forrest image, I'm sure it's the same one howling in the foreground. Beron also looks great, I was expecting him to look bigger though but I do like the strands of hair hinting at his human form.

Also worthy of a mention is that in the Bag-end shot, you can clearly see one of Dwalin's axes that can sometimes be seen on his back in some of he vlogs.

So what do you think happens to Orcrist? (spoilers) [In reply to] Can't Post

Do you think Bilbo will steal it? I don't think the elves would be very willing to give such an important elvish sword back to a dwarf. Maybe Thorin doesn't get it back until he's dead? Frown

*SPOILER* In the book... [In reply to] Can't Post

... Thranduil lays it upon Thorin's breast as his body is laid to rest under the Mountain.

And it was said that ever after the blade glowed in the darkness so that the Mountain was never taken by surprise.

Excellent arguments! [In reply to] Can't Post

I couldn't agree with you more Marillaraina, though I think I ought to warn you now that Shelob isn't one to give up Wink

And holy beards, this thread is moving fast, I experienced the same three-page-long growth spurt overnight. Just goes to show that this is the most exciting bit of news so far.

On the subject of new costumes, I remember seeing a scale double wearing a sort of harlequin print, multicoloured affair that for whatever reason immediately made me think of Bombur. I know this occurred at a different point in the story since the dwarves were riding skewbald ponies (there weren't any of that type in the former, shaggy batch).

It's taken from him during his capture and handed back as a token of honour by Thranduil.

Bilbo in Mirkwood [In reply to] Can't Post

It could be that the image of Bilbo holding his sword is actually from Riddles in the Dark. There is (from what I can see) a lack of webs on Bilbo, and it looks as if he sees something rather curious. It could be in the actual Mirkwood scene, to be sure, but it may also be from a different scene.
