Is this the original "One Ring" that inspired Tolkien's tales?
Haven't we learned yet not to test Stephen Colbert's Tolkien knowledge?
Peter Jackson's first installment in the film adaptation of Tolkien's classic, The Hobbit, was not met with the same enthusiasm as the Lord of the Rings trilogy.
A cursory analysis will net you a proof positive that the Tolkien Estate is not a big fan of people adapting and otherwise looking to use J.R.R.'s works as a tool to make money. But never before has Tolkien's son, Christopher, made a formal comment on Peter Jackson's movies. Until now, that is.
Got 3,000 hours to spare this holiday season? Why not stack up this impressive life-sized LEGO hobbit hole you can actually hoist a pint in?
We've all hummed along to the haunting dirge heard in the first Hobbit trailer. Now lend an ear to the entire sequence in a stirring new clip just released by Warner Bros.
The closer The Hobbit gets to its worldwide theatrical release, the more trouble it seems to garner. Whether it's Ian McKellen crying in frustration over the CGI or PETA protesting over the mistreatment of animals used on set, the property has seen better days. Now we can add a lawsuit from Tolkien's estate itself to the list.
The Hobbit is so close to coming out that, basically, every day is a new opportunity for Peter Jackson and co. to give us another taste of what's in store. This time, we get a voiceover from Gandalf, some dwarf shenanigans, and Bilbo facing off against none other than Gollum himself.
With The Hobbit's wide film release only a month away, the trailers are coming in fast and furious now. With each one, we get a little more of a taste of what this adaptation will be like. In this one, we hear a surprising amount of courage come from the mouth of one Bilbo Baggins.
Need some musical inspiration? Why be satisfied with a singe ode or ballad when you can listen to the whole score to The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey right this second. Sit back and soak in these stirring songs straight from Middle-earth.
