Martin Thanks Facebook fans w/ Troll scene Can't Post

Video of Martin in LA. Thanking the FB fans for supporting The Hobbit and also has the troll scene with it. I'm assuming it's okay to post as this was put out by WB.

Thanks Ham Sammy! [In reply to] Can't Post

A pleasure to watch. Six days and counting....
Oh we are going to be N U T S about screen caps this time next week!
I'm sure the promo things aren't Martin's favorite, as he seems very private, and I do hope he knows how much we fans truly appreciate him.Angelic

Yeah [In reply to] Can't Post

Promoting stuff is just not his thing. You can even tell in that video to a degree. But..we all have parts of our job that isn't our favorite. His is doing that kind of thing. I'm grateful though he put his best foot forward and did the promos. I still havent seen TORN's interview. I thought they did one but maybe it will come out closer to the release of the DVD.

Yep next week will be screen shot heaven. I don't know how to do it though so I'll have to rely on others.

Yes this is fine, Ham Sammy. [In reply to] Can't Post

I do love Martin's expressions in the troll scene. :)

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 beggar with them too." - Gandalf's Diaries, final par, by Ufthak.

Me too! [In reply to] Can't Post

I just love all his facial expressions. He's so good at that. The whole ... "I wouldn't risk it, I really wouldn't" cracks me up every..single..time.

The timing of this entire sequence is really excellent. [In reply to] Can't Post

I love the reaction shots of Bilbo and all the dwarves, but my favorite is the look on Bombur's upside down face when Bilbo says that he has worms, closely followed by Kili's reaction after getting kicked by Thorin.

Kili and Thorin [In reply to] Can't Post

I love the exasperation on Bibo's face when they say they don't have parasites, immediately followed by the look on Thorin's face, then the kick, then how Kili looks again at Bilbo. That is so darned classic. It's great.

I love all of these! [In reply to] Can't Post

And even like the Troll's reaction to Bilbo's comments about Bombur having "worms...in his tubes"! All 3 Trolls are horribly disgusted...seems like they are awful picky for such revolting creatures, who are willing to eat their victims rawwww......Tongue

'"Never laugh at live dragons, Bilbo you fool!" he said to himself, and it became a favourite saying of his later, and passed into a proverb.'

Very nice reminder [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you for posting this. I love the way the Trolls are portrayed, their accents included. Still don't know exactly what that word is 'Fleurber…Hobbit'. It sounds like something a food connoisseur would say.

Hehe yes! [In reply to] Can't Post

Too funny. I'm really glad they let the 3 guys do the MoCap for the troll scene I think that made it tons better. Those 3 did such a great job.
