how Evangeline Lilly gets billing over everyone but the big 3. What about the canon characters?

I saw this image yesterday, but... [In reply to] Can't Post

I saw this image while Googling yesterday, but without the logo or text. I assumed it was just from one of the many books that I don't own, so didn't bother sharing.

Looks to me like someone's photoshopped it into a poster, but could be official. I like it though. Reminds me of Sauron in the Lego game :)

Looks like a combination of ... [In reply to] Can't Post

the Gandalf/Dol Guldur poster in DOS as background, the flaming eye+Sauron armour in the film and a set of (female?) legs that are disproportionate to the rest of the body.

That said, that disproportion does give it an uncomfortable feeling of something twisted - which is perfect; but then again, it is somewhat evident that its photoshopped; though very well done.Smile

I doubt any 'regular fan' would have the individual elements/assets to be able to produce it. [In reply to] Can't Post

Therefore even though it may be an older image and composited from a range of assets I'd say it was still official.

LOL don't get me started (but love this poster!!) Is it real? [In reply to] Can't Post

Other posters have already mentioned to me who knows what the future holds, and there's a difference in marketing vs. film narrative, but while OK Tauriel was everywhere last year being a new character and all, thought that would get dialed down, and maybe we'd see more of the others - Thranduil, and the dwarves, especially at the end - in particular Fili and Kili, Balin, Bofur (earlier mentioned as having a particular role in BOFA), and maybe Dwalin.

And that's been true to a degree. Hopefully the future holds BALANCE, as it were.Unsure

Anyway for me I can hardly say Sauron is a favorite character, but I thought this was wonderful, because to me it really gives a sense of transparent flame, it is so ominous, yet rich - love the colors - if I were going to put an image of Sauron on the wall this would be it (well, I kinda do already re the Jerry Vanderstelt print) but definitely saving this image. Happily *cough* for me the colors also evoke blood which in turn evoke all the darkness and death Sauron has caused - if this is fan art IMO awesome.

I don't know, i might be wrong, but the thread is misleading, if the art is made by a fan.

Billing is set by contract. [In reply to] Can't Post

Obviously she had a great agent.

******************************************
"Hola! Gorbag! What are you doing up here? Had enough of war already?"
"Orders, you lubber. And what are you doing, Shagrat? Tired of lurking up there? Thinking of coming down to fight?"
"Orders to you. I'm in command of this pass. So speak civil. What's your report?"

"Everything's really great in Cirith Ungol,
All the way from here to down below.
We haven’t seen old Shelob though she’s seven ranga tall,
About as high as a spider oughta grow!

"There’s one thing that we found in Cirith Ungol,
We found it just a little while ago.
There’s a slime trail going all the way to Shelob’s dark abode.
We followed it and found a giant midget elf-lord in the road,
We fought him and prevailed and boy we really knocked him cold!
He’s out about as far as he can go!
He’s out about as far as he can go!"

Yep. [In reply to] Can't Post

She was considered a big draw and was able to negotiate third billing.

Ironically Stuart Townsend was considered an even bigger star at the time and probably would have been listed in the top two.
