I don't excited for very many movies. the LoTR Trilogy I got pretty excited for. I remember they were the first books that I read on my own and actually wanted to read. I read them before the Hobbit, and now that it is coming out and I am very excited to see it finally being made.

Get a First Look at Bilbo Baggins in Peter Jackson’s Hobbit

Welcome to the Shire, Tim Canterbury. (Though, technically, you were here first?) EW has two more set photos, including Ian McKellen as Gandalf.

@tsarstepan,
We saw a preview when we went to "Brave." It wasn't captioned but still looked very good. Sozlet grabbed my arm and said "WE MUST SEE THAT MOVIE!!!!" (She's read "The Hobbit" and loved it.)

We both mourned "real Dumbledore," though. (J.K. Rowling had Ian McKellan in mind when she wrote the character, but he had just done Gandalf and didn't want to do something so similar and turned down the role of Dumbledore. Even though he IS Dumbledore. Sniff.)

@dlowan,
Yes, Ian McKellen! (Are you taking umbrage at my misspelling?)

This is Dumbledore:

Except that it's Gandalf. Phooey. (Gandalf as played by Ian McKellen.)

@sozobe,
Also Dumbledore. So very Dumbledore, with a bit of a haircut. (If it's not clear, I'm speaking of the book-Dumbledore.)

Always remember that you can go out with a nun, but never get into the hobbit.

Unfortunately, the film company did try a bit of nasty bullying. They've since backed down, so I can enjoy drinking in the Hobbit without harassment.

Quote:
The battle between Hollywood and The Hobbit gained an unexpected new recruit as the British performer Stephen Fry threw his weight behind a campaign to save an imperiled Southampton public house. Fry, who is currently shooting his role as the Master of Laketown in Peter Jackson's Tolkien adaptation, criticised an attempt by the production's lawyers to force the pub to change its name. "Sometimes I'm ashamed of the business I'm in," he tweeted. "What pointless, self-defeating bullying."

The Hobbit pub in Portswood, Southampton, which serves bespoke cocktails named after JRR Tolkien's characters, has been given until the end of May to change its name or face costly legal action. The challenge was launched by Middle-Earth Enterprises, a division of the LA-based Saul Zaentz Company, which controls worldwide merchandising rights to The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings. In recent months the company has also targeted The Hungry Hobbit, a sandwich bar based near the author's childhood home of Sarehole, near Birmingham.

Stella Roberts, landlady of the Hobbit pub, claims it will cost thousands to re-brand the business. "The pub has been called The Hobbit for more than 20-years and it has never been a problem," she said. "I believe the decision to target us now was prompted by the release of the film ... We just haven't got the resources to fight it. I can't fight Hollywood."

Okay, the Fandango system gave me a minor heart attack because it took so long to put up the showtimes but I did manage to get the new HFR 3D tickets. Something that will take advantage of the 48 FPM tech that Peter Jackson used to shoot the trilogy.

@tsarstepan,
Cool!

Sozlet and I can't wait to go. I'm not sure if we'll do the whole midnight screening thing, though. Especially not sure if I'll wait to see it captioned (usually need a week or two for that).
