Dude, it's plastered across every twitter and facebook news feed. Spoilers went out the window the moment it hit the web, lol.

It's amazing how easy it is is to err on the side of caution concerning spoilers.

It's just weird that they've released a shot from the third film when the first film isn't even properly out yet.

No i am decifering a picture and used it based off knowing there are 3 movies and it looks like a camp scene and so it easily could be in 2 still and not a 3rd movie still. Hate to tell you I can use rankin and bass as a point because its been out a long a$$ time.

Couldn't agree more. It's a shame The Hobbit turned into action comedy...

Raimi would have been a horrible choice after seeing OZ, his CGI always looked fake to me and in OZ the green screen was terrible with franco and others.

Warner Bros. claims Tolkien Estate breached Hobbit contract

Warner Bros. is going after the estate of author J.R.R. Tolkien hard in litigation over online slot machines and games tied to the lucrative Lord of the Rings and Hobbit properties.

In November, the Tolkien estate and and its book publisher HarperCollins filed an $80 million lawsuit that claimed that Rings/Hobbit producers including Warner Bros. had infringed the copyright in the books and breached a contract by overstepping their rights.

Rings/Hobbit rightsholder Saul Zaentz Co. already made their own counterclaim that the Tolkien estate has breached an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing by going down this road.

Now, it’s Warners’ turn.

The studio, represented by pitbull attorney Daniel Petrocelli, is now striking back at the Tolkien estate with amended counterclaims that alleges the Tolkien estate’s repudiation has cost Warners to miss out on millions of dollars of licensing opportunities. The studio demands damages for the alleged breach of contract.

http://www.theonering.net/torwp/2013...bbit-contract/
------------------------------------------------------------

The Tolkiens did have a say - they had it for decades - right up until they sold the rights. That's what selling the rights means. If they wanted to keep control - and influence - they shouldn't have sold the rights.

Christopher Tolkien did incredible wonders to develop his Father's heritage - we wouldn't have the Silmarilion, History of Middle-earth or the children of Hurin without him, and we owe him a great deal of thanks. But he sold the rights, meaning he let go of control.

It's always sad when the creator of something wonderful loses influence in his own creation (look at Gene Roddenbury), but the family made a deal for a fixed price and that's that. It's unfortunate that they have missed out on so much of the profits - but it could be argued that there wouldn't have even been said profits if they HADN'T sold. After all, it wasn't the family that went and made the movies. That said, if the deal stipulated "no gambling" then no gambling it should have been. No one is coming out of this smelling of roses.

Jackson is a good director, but him coming out of horror movie background really shows...I always expected LOTR to be done in brighter colours, the whole damn film was like green-grey-black...

The problem is that he has too many Yes men around him. No one is telling him to stop.

I'm okay with the colour palate, but his horror background does leak into the show too much, I will agree.

Particularly that terrible Lurtz fight at the end of Fellowship. And of course the Paths of the Dead.

They're just finishing the last round of pick-up shooting for films 2 and 3 in New Zealand. Should be seeing a new trailer with "Man of Steel" and a new video blog from PJ in the next few weeks.

It's not quite the same level of LOTR production excitement from 2000-2002 that these boards and the Internet were filled with, especially considering how "polished" and controlled pictures/videos releases are these days - but I'm still generally excited. PJ's Middle Earth is the only one we'll ever have on screen, and I'll spend as much time there with these characters as possible (except Azog). Unfortunately, it looks like Azog's son, Bolg, might be a "villain" in films 2 and 3.



Source: http://www.unleashthefanboy.com/news...ain-bolg/31520

I might be less negative about Azog and Bolg if PJ were to use real actors like he did for the Uruk-Hai in LOTR rather than crappy CGI.
