The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
2012 | PG-13
Overview: Based on "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkien.
Peter Jackson once again proves that he is not only one of the most fan-friendly filmmakers working in cinema today, but also press-friendly. Jackson routinely offers updates on his currently-in-production two-part prequel to the The Lord of the Rings (LOTR) trilogy, The Hobbit, on his personal Facebook page and he has already shared four production video blogs chronicling the making of the movie. Not only that, but he obviously doesn't place a moratorium on what invited press can report on — a nearly ubiquitous practice for major movie productions — when they visit the sets in New Zealand because "Quint" from AICN has just posted a detailed account of his travels throughout Jackson's re-creation of "Middle-earth," complete with several revealing photos, most notably shots of Sir Ian McKellen's Gandalf stand-in, the 7-foot-tall New Zealander "Tall Paul" (left), and Stephen Hunter in costume as the dwarf Bombur.
