Beorn's House Can't Post

On Torn Tuesday this week, Cliff and Justin showed a featurette of Beorn's House but there was no sound. It is part of the Denny's menu Hobbit promotion. I took from the podcast, when you are at Denny's you can use a smartphone app and a code from the menu to watch various featurettes. It looked to be a nice look of Beorn's house and it was the first interview with Mikael Persbrandt. Has anyone seen it who can summarize it?

They didn't give too much away [In reply to] Can't Post

The actors described how they're chased by a bear into Beorn's house, where they take refuge. Mostly they commented on the scale of the set, how intricate the carvings were, and how much fun it was to have the whole company together on set. Persbrandt didn't say much, other than to say that Beorn is a skin-changer and that the set was amazing in its level of detail.

The footage focused on the central dining table, as well as the food the dwarves ate. The dwarves did say that they had to be very respectful in Beorn's houseóno trashing the place! One shot showed cows inside the house.

It's a nice video if you can snag a menu to scan the code!

Smaug and Beorn... [In reply to] Can't Post

have been shrouded in so much secrecy it's sickening to me... those are my two most anticipated elements of this next movie. And we know so little about them!!!

Not really fond of him [In reply to] Can't Post

I am very familiar with Mikael Persbrandts work and have seen him in countless movies and tv-series in Sweden. I am not a big fan of his work so I am not longing for an interview with him or to see him in The Hobbit even. But I really want an interview with Benedict Cumberbatch about playing Smaug!!! But December is getting closer so hopefully soon we will get something...

Is there a Greenscreen-Set of the interior of Beorn's house? [In reply to] Can't Post

We know they have built the interior in a large scale to fit the relation of the dwarfes.
So Persbrandt has to act alone or with McKellan on a separate set like Ian did for himself in Bag End.

I ask because in the Empire Scans you can see Persbrandt in the real set. What do you think?

Scale [In reply to] Can't Post

Is there any other way to scale him to the size of the set other than how they did the Bag End shooting?

If so, if I would be McKellan, I would be pis**d... [In reply to] Can't Post

As "Force Perspective" is out of race, regarding to 3D, it should be the only way.
Maybe Beorn was just there to get a sense for the interior.
We saw Ian in the Gab End set, too.

Really looking forward to Beorn's house [In reply to] Can't Post

What I've seen of it reminds me of Tolkien's own illustration of the interior.

Also looking forward to Beorn himself, since I like what I have seen of him as an actor and he appears to have the right persona for the role.
