[] Oh my... the dwarf on the left (Dori?) looks ridiculous. If Patrick Star from SpongeBob Squarepants were a Middle Earth Dwarf I'm pretty sure he'd look like that.

I believe Dori is the one on the right, with the grey beard.

So does that Ori the monk and Nori the starfish or vice versa?

This description was released with the picture:
quote:
These three brothers, all sons of the same mother, could not be more different from each other.

Dori, the oldest, spends much of his time watching out for Ori, the youngest; making sure he’s not caught a chill or got himself killed by Wargs or Goblins.

Nobody quite knows what Nori gets up to most of the time, except that it’s guaranteed to be dodgy and quite probably, illegal.

Dori, Nori and Ori are intensely loyal to each other – and whilst they are perfectly happy fighting amongst themselves, woe-betide anyone who means harm to one of these brothers.

So I'm guessing Nori's on the left, and Ori's in the middle.

Yeah, I suspect there was some major airbrushing or something going on, since these are promo images. I doubt they'll look so plasticky in the movies.

Óin, sir, and Glóin, sir.

quote:
Distant cousins of Thorin Oakenshield, these two doughty Northern Dwarves join the Company out of a sense of loyalty to their kin, and also because they have a substantial sum of money invested in the venture. Along with Bombur, Glóin is the only other married Dwarf in the Company (there being a shortage of female dwarves in general). His wife is an acclaimed beauty with a particularly fine beard. Glóin is the proud father of a young son, Gimli, who will go on to become part of the famous Fellowship of the Ring.

Ugh I HATE that stupid starfish hair.... []

Also, these pictures are so stylized it's bordering on ridiculous. Thankfully Oin and Gloin look better. Looks like they made Gloin to resemble Gimli, so that's good.

Now, I wonder what our own Glóin has to say about this new likeness. []

They should! If only as a brief cameo or something. [] I'm curious.

What's with the hair? How many cans of Aqua-Net does it take to do that? Looks like they're in a 1980's Hair Metal band... Poison anyone?

Wow Martin Freeman is the perfect Bilbo..
Uhm, Bilbo was like 50 years old and pudgy. . . ??

I just love how people are all over the interwebs, cooing this phrase. [] LOL, according to whose fan fiction?!

I guess when you tell yourself a 33-year-old Frodo should look about 16 (I'm looking at you Pyjama) then WTH, a 50-year-old Bilbo should look spot-on at about 25-30, amirite? Yeah, even if they tried to celebrate the actor's full 39 years (which they aren't) he's still too young to be "perfectly cast" as Bilbo. . . Maybe some folks need to re-read the descriptions in the text? (And no, I've never been a fan of the "Well duh, 33 = 19 in Hobbit years!" theory: never seen anything that resembled proof.)

Oh wait, we want Bilbo to be consistent with the films, not the books, right? Young Frodo = young Bilbo. Sure! So what happens when supposedly Bilbo doesn't age a day in the years between these events and the long-unexpected party in FotR? [] Help me out; I haven't seen the film in years, but doesn't Gandalf remark that Bilbo hasn't aged a day? If so, there's going to be a glaring inconsistency!

Not that a little thing like that has ever stopped PJ! []

I was gonna say Flock of Seagulls myself, but I suppose the geological formation of peaks and valleys that are his head don't have quite the right configuration. You win.

And I sure hope that dwarf on the left isn't actually Dori, seeing how Dori's the one who carries Bilbo around on his back. Someone's gonna lose an eye!

Hi Archer. Nice to see you around.

I'm at the point with PJ where if he just follows the plot line, I'll be ecstatic. As far as adding a bit more to PJ-ize it with a female elf or Legolas? Well, I guess he can't help himself, but I just hope he can keep it otherwise intact.

I'm just gonna ignore the haters. []

A new production video is up on PJ's Facebook page, covering the end of the first part of filming (they're splitting it up into three blocks) and a bunch of location scouting. Good stuff! []

EDIT: YouTube link for those who either can't or won't visit Facebook (understandably so).

Also...more pics! Click the thumbnails for larger versions.

I wasn't referring to you. []

Can you watch vids on YouTube? Someone was kind enough to upload the video there.
