Does this mean no 2014 pick-ups? [In reply to] Can't Post

I know they had pick-ups before each LOTR film and had assumed they would for The Hobbit as well. I guess everyone was scheduled in for these pick-ups but not 2014 as the deals were set before the split. Or maybe they simply just don't need them and wanted to get everything in one go this time around.

That aside, end of an era.

I'm not convinced [In reply to] Can't Post

I have to think there will be pick-ups next year. I can't believe someone like Jackson will be entirely satisfied.

The End of an Era....... [In reply to] Can't Post

Thank you Sir Ian McK for all his hard work- for me, he really has been the quintessential Gandalf as I'd imagined him.Smile

Totally off topic, but I noticed whilst typing this- all of these people who have knighthoods (not all for these films I stress)- Ian McK, Ian H, Christopher Lee, PJ, Richard Taylor, but there was never a knighthood for Tolkien- not even a posthumous one! I guess he died before his works had quite the wide fanbase they do now, but even so......just saying!Unsure

has tweeted this:

Tonight we saw Gandalf say farewell to middle earth... weird and emotional @IanMcKellen #LEGEND

I also saw Graham McTavish mention that some people were already leaving and going home - I wonder who else will be going and who will be staying till the very end.

How sad. [In reply to] Can't Post

But brilliant as well. What a journey the whole cast and crew have been on, from 1999 onwards. All I can say is "congratulations and well done".

Sir McKellen has definitely been one of the shining lights of the ME film franchise, so I'd like to say thanks and wish him luck in his future endeavors.

What a sweet picture [In reply to] Can't Post

of both of them. A fantastic creative relationship with so much heart in it from both of them. As other have said, as our Gandalf Sir Ian has been rather a rock for us all who love the films. Perfection without reservation. A big *Thank You* to Sir Ian (And to SPJ for the inspired casting choice...waaaay back when.)

Manwe, when asked a simple "Yes" or "No" question, contemplated, and responded "the middle one."

wow [In reply to] Can't Post

14 years to be associated with a single project is impressive. I think when PJ is finished he will have something like 17 years invested in the LotR and the Hobbit.

As someone who fell in love.... [In reply to] Can't Post

... with Gandalf when I saw FOTR at the ripe age of twelve, forever changing me as a person, and cementing Gandalf as my favorite onscreen character.... this is very emtional.

Ian McKellen is Gandalf, and Gandalf is Ian McKellan.

Thank you, Sir Ian. You have touched the lives of many.

The Grey Pilgrim, they once called me. Three hundred lives of men I walked this earth, and now I have no time...

British literature is dominated by an urban elite. [In reply to] Can't Post

Tolkien had a massive fan base when he died. However, the fact that the poor quality fantasy genre attached itself to Tolkien's mythological folk tales, and the fact that he does not deal with the obsessions of middle class urbanites, and the fact that such people - see G. Greer for typical example, are insecure about their own work - much of which is style over substance, and are terrified by anything magical or 'childish' - has led to a situation in Britain where Tolkien is appreciated by everyone except the literary community.

Go into Waterstones and look in the Classics section for him - you won't find him there (unless things have changed recently). He's in the fantasy ghetto - equivalent to the finger painting section of the art gallery.

I'm surprised no one has speculated about the cuts and bruises on his face [In reply to] Can't Post

Are they from BoFA, or Dol Guldur?

And will he have his arm in a sling as well?
