Entertainment Weekly has revealed four new magazine covers for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey featuring Gandolf, Bilbo, Gollum and Thorin.
We've been waiting a long time to see this movie and the moment is almost here when we will finally get to see it! There's been a bunch of reviews released and peoples thoughts on it have been pretty mixed. But I think the hardcore fans are going to love it. Bilbo Baggins is played by Martin Freeman in the film, and he looks like he nailed the part! He was perfectly cast, but that doesn't mean he's not worried about what other people will think about his performance, in an interview with the magazine he said,
The Hobbit is a suicide mission, If I read one bad thing about me — it can be one person’s opinion in Idaho — I’m like, ‘Jesus, why does everyone hate me? If you read four of those, you think, ‘Everyone in the solar system hates me!’ Then even if you read 80 people saying, ‘I think he’s wonderful and I really want to f— him,’ you’re still thinking, ‘But that person in Idaho…’ In short, I don’t really seek out the Hobbit stuff.
Peter Jackson goes on to talk about how the new trilogy is a lot lighter than Lord of the Rings, but that doesn't mean it's going to be long and boring, in fact he says it's the exact opposite.
The Hobbit is written in a series of chapters that feel almost like they’re designed to be read to your son a daughter at night. It’s got that episodic, rip-roaring adventure quality to it.
A lot of the questions I’m being asked are perfectly understandable. But I’m confident that when the first movie comes out, people will understand. The Hobbit is a faster-paced film than the Lord of the Rings films. It has more adventure, more action. When people see the first film, those questions will go away.
The first film in the trilogy is set to be released on December 14th, and I hope it lives up to all of our expectations!
