The Hobbit was the only LOTR book I read, I loved it. The movie should be good. I also heard that they are going to make another movie that takes place inbetweent The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring.

I don't think it'll necessarily be as good as the trilogy but I have high hopes. I believe in Guillermo Del Torro

Ya I do too. I think he will do a fine job. Peter Jackson is producing it too which is great. What a disaster it would be if they got Michael Bay to do The Hobbit movie...

I still think a movie with a collection of the stories in The Silmarillion would be badass.

i have my doubts. I just think that the creatures will look more like they're from Pan's Labirinth(sp?). i do know though that it will be 2 or more movies, just all filmed at once to save money

I hope they make the supposed 2nd movie about The Silmarillion. I wonder how they would portray Morgoth?

are they still splitting it up into two movies. i like that idea, that way they will be able to capture most the storymetaldude05

actually, the first movie is based directly of the hobbit, while the other movie is a fiction used to connect the hobbit and the lord of the ring triology

You think they will get Viggo for that one? I just can't watch it if its completely different character.

I have to do more researh one this one, I loved everything about LotR and The Hobbit was a great book, but if its not up to the LotR movies, I don't think I could enjoy it, at least not alot.

I agree. Seems like they're so desperate to milk that cash cow until it bleeds that they'll stray off into stuff Tolkein didn't even have a hand in.

I hope Christopher Lee will also sign, even if he is 80+, he was the best with Saruman

Omgomgomgomgomgomg YES!

I havn't done reseach into this movie much, but knowing stuff like this, I think it should be just as good as the LotR triliogy.

No one should ever kid about that. If he was directing, I'm sure the Pentagon would be involved, somehow.

The Hobbit was the only LOTR book I read, I loved it. The movie should be good. I also heard that they are going to make another movie that takes place inbetweent The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring.omfg_its_dally

But that's what I don't get, there isn't a book as far as I know that takes place between The Hobbit and The Fellowship of the Ring. So what are they going to do? Make something up? I don't like the sound of that. However I loved The Hobbit book and am looking forward to that movie. I doubt it will be as epic as the LOTR trilogy.

I love the Hobbit. Hopefully Peter Jackson won't let Guillermo make the movie too weird. :P

I'm curious how the spiders and Smaug will turn out.

Well Tolkin kinda went into what happened in-between The Hobbit and the Fellowship of the Ring. Things like Gandalf and Aragon hunting down gollum and stuff, my memory is bad so I don't remember if we went into it more.

Two years form now, when this thread is on its third edition because it couldn't fit any more posts in the first two, and its stickied because the movie is about to come out, you will look back and say "Wow I got owned."

JK, or not :P

I can't think it will be anywhere as good as LOTR, but I am still excited about it.

And the chances of keeping this thread going for two years are not looking good.

He said he'd like to return if asked (probably will be) but he's not sure about flying to New Zealand at his age, he's 86 after all.

Guillermo del Toro (the guy who did Pans Labrynth) shall be directing aslo Del Toro plans to do something really big with Smaug. He said, that 'Smaug should not be "the Dragon in the Hobbit movie" as if it was just "another" creature in a Bestiary. Smaug should be "The DRAGON" for all movies past and present.'
