We have discussed many times around here the awesomeness of the Lord of the Rings films.
Let the magic continue. Filming has started on the two film adaptation of the Hobbit. http://www.thehobbitblog.com/
Peter Jackson really knows how to stick to a diet!
I'm extremely excited for this, who shouldn't be? After all the controversy about who was going to direct it, it finally went back in the hands of the guy who's hands it shouldn't have left in the first place. ONE DIRECTOR TO RULE THEM ALL!
2012 is looking to have some majorly awesome nerd films coming out, The Hobbit, The Avengers, The Amazing Spiderman, The Dark Knight Rises, The Twilight Saga Breaking Dawn Part 2, a Star Trek Sequel.
Wait, one of those didn't belong... No time to check...
There is a video clip from Bryan Singer - during the production of Superman Returns in Australia, he was invited to the set of King Kong in New Zealand. Peter Jackson (pre-weight loss?) was so exhausted he asked Singer to help him direct some scenes. The video shows Jackson literally falling asleep mid-sentence - it is comical and sad at the same time.
