New SFX magazine, with Hobbit content! (And creepy Bilbo is back ...) Can't Post

SFX (#229) has gone on sale this week, and has new content on the upcoming films.

Not sure how we all missed it. Here's the link to their website. I'll be picking one up this afternoon.

Not so much a scoop then [In reply to] Can't Post

Still, I'll pick one up anyway. Must be a few snippets that will keep me happy.

Thanks Fardragon. Smile

That picture of Bilbo is soooo creepy [In reply to] Can't Post

It amazes me that it's been used as much as it has. If I would have taken that picture, my first reaction would be "Hahah, that made you look really creepy lets do another one"

Well, this pic looks new at least: [In reply to] Can't Post



Is that the Dwarves sacked out near Goblin-town?

BTW, even this article opens with asking if PJ and Co. are making "risky creative decisions". They've made everyone nervous. Tongue

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

I don't think it's creepy, so I don't know what the big deal is. [In reply to] Can't Post

He just looks mischievous, golly gee wiz. Sly

It's a good picture [In reply to] Can't Post

But I have no idea what's going on in it.

Why is everyone knocked out? And why does Bilbo look like he's sneaking away?

Perhaps he's sneaking up to the crack on the back wall of the cave? [In reply to] Can't Post

It's also a behind the scene shot, rather than a screen capture.

Is it behind the scenes? [In reply to] Can't Post

If so, it doesn't bother me. If not, I'm completely confused.

It's not very interesting at all [In reply to] Can't Post

The basic answer was no. And apart from that, all it says is they try to strike a balance between what Tolkien wrote, and everything else (Gandalf's absence etc.)

Really very little to report on.

Based on the last TV spot [In reply to] Can't Post

It seems that Bilbo will avoid capture by the goblins, sneak into the tunnels, be spotted by a goblin who gets into that sword-exchange with him, followed by Bilbo and the goblin tumbling down, down down into Gollum's cave.

The dwarves' fight with the Great Goblin will then happen simultaneously with Riddles in the Dark.

Bilbo will later meet the company outside, and Thorin will accuse him of having bailed out on them when they were most in need.

Seems like there was no new info from the mag... [In reply to] Can't Post

But yes, Riddles/Goblin-town has had things shifted around and added based on recent info, ETC. Seems like there's going to be as much new/expanded material as there is material from the book in the film, so we'll see how it's balanced narrativly/thematically.
