Thanks to Stephen Fry's anger with an UK journalist we may have some interesting news... Can't Post

Leaving apart his quite reasonable answer to the attitude and 'work' of the journalist,he dropped this interesting line


Quote
means I never ever have to submit myself to the horror of a print interview ever again in my life. Ever. Imagine what joy that means! When I do a The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug press junket next week, for example, I will do no print media


So, this means we may start seeing the wheels of promotion working this week, since his post was done two days ago

YAY! [In reply to] Can't Post

Yay on the promo find!

Burn on that journalist....ouch....

wow....

I would NOT want to be on Mr. Fry's bad side......Shocked

Hopefully this means that the promo will start soon, and we can finally stop being bored and start getting news!!!! Laugh

Race is meaningless. We all bleed red-no matter who or what we are. What matters is the heart. For each race has those with good hearts and those with bad hearts. You have a good heart. You do not deserve to die.

I can hardly blame him. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm pretty sure I'd get sick of answering the same damn questions over and over pretty quickly as well. Crazy

I hope they give Tauriel opportunities to smile and laugh [In reply to] Can't Post

Evie has the most adorable ones. Maybe dwarves make her laugh. I can se ethat happening. Stiff Elves certianly wouldn't but dwarves with their lucky-go-happy personas are closer to her pasisonate nature.

I agree [In reply to] Can't Post

I would like to see some of the merrier traits of the Elves displayed, and Lilly seems like she would be able to pull it off (certainly more than Bloom, and it would not be appropriate for Thranduil). We saw a touch of it in Elrond in AUJ (and it looks like we might get a little more in the EE), which was very welcome after his portrayal in LOTR, but I would like to see more.

I would REALLY like to see pictures of the cast other than this one. [In reply to] Can't Post

I've just about had it with her, especially since the constant 'elf' spam has now turned me off the film, which I was initially so much looking forward to.
