Being a huge Tolkien’s fan, it’s never enough ‘goodies’ for me, and you can imagine my happiness when I’ve seen this album on Imgur. 150 IMAGES from the shooting of Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey!! And all downloadable! (Luckily, the album has an ’embed’ option, otherwise I’d be downloading and re-posting them until this time tomorrow, heheh) Here, you can enjoy them, too!
The adventure follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor from the fearsome dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakenshield. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers.
Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever… Gollum.
Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities… A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
The movie hits theaters on December 14th, 2012 and it stars Ian Holm, Elijah Wood, Ian Mckellen, Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Richard Armitage, Andy Serkis, Martin Freeman, Christopher Lee, Evangeline Lilly, Billy Connolly, Benedict Cumberbatch and others.
