New pictures from the Hobbit! Can't Post

Link

I wonder what Frodo and Gandalf are holding?! Is it Glamdring?

And Bilbo is covered in Troll snot.

Here is the original source.

Most likely Bilbo being dropped in the big pot of soup or something of that nature. Love the shot of him smoking his pipeweed on a wonderful day....NO THANK YOU, GOOD MORNING!

What does everybody think... [In reply to] Can't Post

about the perspective in the shot of Gandalf and Bilbo. It seems very obvious to me that Martin Freeman is not a hobbit.

It looks more like a behind-the-scenes shot, than a still from the actual films. [In reply to] Can't Post

It hasn't got the same quality as the others. Smile Probably makes the perspective a bit off?

Well as long as [In reply to] Can't Post

they resisted using de-aging CGI I guess I can't complain. It's not that he looks older, so much as hungrier.... like he should after his experience with the Ring, rather than before. A different lens could do that. Perhaps it's just a weird angle.

I wonder how much prep he did for the roll? It's got to be hard re-inhabiting one's former skin given all that has happened since the last time.

I'll cast my lot with the others [In reply to] Can't Post

and point out that the arrangement of the actors works against forced perspective -- even their eye lines suggest they are of similar size. Gandalf's proportion to Bag-end seems off as well.

Don't think it's the angle [In reply to] Can't Post

He looked like that in the production video too. I think he definitely looks different, and I think Old Bilbo looks different too. Something about the wig I think, rather than the faces?

I don't think he looks noticably older at all. [In reply to] Can't Post

It works for me. It is certainly not the sort of jarring, laughable (or lamentable) stark contrast that sometimes happens when they try to pass an actor off as a younger version of themselves.

Pretty certain the blade is Glamdring, layered in dust [In reply to] Can't Post

What, exactly [In reply to] Can't Post

Is this troll snot idea? Where did it come from?

I like these shots. The cinematography in the completed ones (I think the Gandalf and Bilbo/Bag End shot is behind the scenes) looks, to me, noticeably better than it did in the trailers.

That would fit [In reply to] Can't Post

with the abortive 1960 rewrite, wherein Tolkien was toying with the blades being begrimed as an explanation for why Gandalf couldn't read their inscriptions.

Man is but an ass if he go about to expound this dream.
