IF the hobbit is split how should it be done/what should the films be called Can't Post

(for those that havent read it the mtv interview kinda brought this back into question)
end it after gandalf tells co hes going to leave cool wide shot of him rding into the sidtacne then roll credits and 2nd goes back and forth between (to save time) the other stuff and the rest of the hobbit ala the latter 2 LOTR but leave sometihng else for the end after the end of hobbit like mayb the esacpe of gollum or the revealing of the "necromancer"'s identiy give it a revenge of the sith type feel

as for titles call pt 1 the hobbit and base the 2nd on whatever of the other stuff the emphasis is on such as "the necromancer" or "the ranger (or dunidain)" or even "the (decide what to call gollum/smeagol and insert it here)" (or just copy HPDH and do pt 1 and 2 or kill bill and do vol. 1 and 2)

It should focus on the dwarves and... [In reply to] Can't Post

...Begin with the history of Durin's folk. We see how they become a wandering, homeless folk, the fall of Moria, the battles with the Goblins, Thrain in the dungeons of the Necromancer etc. I don't think this will happen... I think the Hobbit will probably be one movie, and the second will focus on the White Council and Sauron in Dol Guldur... As such I think I'll just see the first. I certainly don't want to see "cameos" for the sake of it. There's no reason for there to be any focus on Aragorn or Arwen and their meeting. Their story was adequately told in LotR, it doesn't need adding to... There's no reason why we can't see Aragorn's adventures as Thorongil... But personally I'd like to see the tale of the Dwarves regaining their homeland as a sort of parallel of the Jews regaining their homeland... Narratively and thematically that would be most interesting to me.

Title, Waffle and a little on the Big Man [In reply to] Can't Post

Title suggestions...A Fistful of Hobbit followed by For a Few Hobbits More ??

Seriously though I've recently watched pretty much all of the GDT films and the thing that really strikes me over and above all else are two things; the attention to character and the effects, which are absolutely astounding given the fact these are not big Bollywood productions (that'd be funny, Bangra LOTR!!!LOL) Hollywood i mean of course.
These two things combined, plus the original writing/production team, cast, non interfering studio = two movies that the whole world is wetting their pants to see !

Moovies! [In reply to] Can't Post

I also think The Hobbit will be one film. I would start with a prologue like FOTR, but telling about how Smaug took over Erebor, although this could be told in 'An unexpected Party'.
GDT says that Ian Holm may be involved in some way. Well, some people have said a narrator would be good. The book has one, and if the first film is Bilbos story and the second film is the same story but told by someone else - then why not? He could do a bit of narrating just at the beginning, as he does in FOTR EE. (Incidentally I hope there's a Hobbit EE too!) Plus that way you could have the famous opening sentence from the book. We see old Bilbo in his study in Bag End, as he begins to write 'There and Back Again'. He says: "Hmm, where to start. Ah, yes - in a hole in the ground, there lived a Hobbit...." Perfect! I think, mr Del Toro, that I should work with you on this script!

I don't want no... [In reply to] Can't Post

made up title for the second movie. It should be somethinge we can recognise. Maybe the title from a chapter, a story from the appendixes or a book from HOME. The Return of the Shadow springs to mind, even though it is pretty much the first book in LOTR...

Oh well, as long as it isn't going to be something cheesy :-)

I just hope they don't [In reply to] Can't Post

Use the whole second movie for the war of 5 armies! Talk about a nightmare!!!!! Maybe the movie should end right when the throng is captured by the wood elves and you see a glimpse of them in the cells and then the movie ends??? Maybe it's not a great cliff hanger... :)
