I give PJ and company credit [In reply to] Can't Post

for not making a version of TH where every single male character (except for elves) looks like either a regular or super-sized dwarf with varying shades of haircolor and beard dressings - and the odd lack of or change of hat style.

Breaking out of the obligatory bearded norseman expectation mode here - I can buy this image of Beorn as being a "wildman" of sorts. Works for me!

While I wouldn't mistake him for Paul Bunyan or anything - he is still quite tall being taller than even Gandalf's hat. I like all the extra hair.

Agreed [In reply to] Can't Post

That's one of the reasons I am liking the design. He doesn't look like a giant dwarf or Hagrid clone.

Okay, I deeply apologize. [In reply to] Can't Post

I just wanted to make sure that neither opinion here was shut down in any way - so this was more a general comment that unfortunately hit the wrong person (at least one of the two) :)

So, again, I misunderstood and deeply apologize.

Love the design. [In reply to] Can't Post

I particularly appreciate how Beorn has more of a feral, "wolf man"-esque look (that mane is a nice touch). He could have very easily been a Hagrid clone.

I DONT like it. He looks... way to small and... I don't know. He just looks silly to me. I will have to wait and see though. I know Persbrandt has an amazing voice and there is something about him that really speaks to this character so I can understand why they picked him. BUT THE DESIGN? Ugh...Crazy

Perhaps he is leaning/bent somewhat? (Perhaps Gandalf is also in a position rendering him smaller)

I really want to like it [In reply to] Can't Post

But they seem to be making it so hard to like, he looks rubbish! Oh Peej!

Something looks wrong with his face - they added unnecessary prosthetics? His facial and head hair looks fake, with a design i think looks like a bad idea that slipped though the net.

For me there is more room for design between this or having a hagrid clone, not just one or the other.

Oh well at least he is original, hopefully he will look better moving around so i don't notice the fake hair.

Just out of curiosity does anyone know what they have used for the hair in the hobbit movies and what was used in lotr movies? Also was there any different techniques used?

That is incredible [In reply to] Can't Post

I am surprised they are somehow able to make real hair look fake! That's a skill, lol.

Maybe it was down to LOTR being filmed in good old regular 24 fps where as this is in 48 fps so to me looks worse (the hair). though that shouldnt make a difference to a photo should it?

I dunno, personally i think the actor looks better prior to them changing his face with prosthetics but oh well, i'll live, lol.

He looks so much different than I had in my mind while reading the book... well, I will wait for the actor's performance before take any conclusions about movie Beorn.

Thank you. [In reply to] Can't Post

I think he looks promising, though it's quite difficult to say until one sees the acting Ė which should be very good, given the actor.

Think his design is pretty good [In reply to] Can't Post

He looks a lot better here compared to the overly photoshopped first image we saw of him. I think the designers at Weta have done the right thing by going for something different to the book's description. I can imagine a lot of people thinking of him as Hagrid's long lost brother. I can, however see why some might not like it, it is quite surprising.

Yes, my username is terrible.

Bard looks so like Will Turner in his calender shot it's ridiculous!! [In reply to] Can't Post

Surely Orlando Bloom must have commented on that at some point during production! Must have been like looking in a mirror from 7 years ago! :D

Also, I like how the kids get their own month in the calender. Cause they have such huge, important roles, apparently....;)

Beorn looks fine. There's no point in making him look insanely huge. He is around the size of Azog, it seems. The main thing is that he towers over Bilbo and the Dwarves.
