The Hobbit: Peter Jackson's Sixth Video Blog
Huzzah! The sixth Video Blog from Peter Jackson has come out detailing the filming of The Hobbit movies. The countryside in New Zealand is amazing and it appears they are having a great time shooting. I'm glad to see Andy Serkis getting so much experience as director of the second unit and I hope that more high quality fantasy movies are made in the future with him at the helm. Note around the 10 minute mark where Graham McTavish, who plays Dwalin, mentions that "Scene 88" will be a separate film released between the two. Now I realize that originally there had been some discussion that they'd make three films and that there would be two for The Hobbit and a "bridge" film to take us through the years between the ending of The Hobbit and the beginning of The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, but that idea seemed to have been shelved. I wonder, though, if they are making a little something extra to put out at Christmastime this year between the two main films. We will see, Anyway, enjoy!
