First trailer for the Hobbit coming soon?

Posted on 15 November 2011 by TH3 No08

With the news that Dark Knight Rising’s trailer would be hitting theaters in December it got a lot of people wondering what other trailers we would see attached to the big holiday movies and it looks like we may see the first trailer for The Hobbit attached to a December release. According to IGN.com Andy Serkis who plays Gollum in the upcoming Hobbit films recently gave an interview and spoke regarding when we could see a trailer.

There will be a trailer fairly soon, actually. Around Christmas time, I believe. It’s just around the corner.

If I was a betting man I would imagine you would see it attached to Peter Jackson’s next film “The Adventures of TinTin” which hits theaters on December 21, 2011.

Andy Serkis Signed to Play Gollum in The Hobbit?

Posted on 11 January 2011 by Christian

According to Deadline, actor Andy Serkis has completed his deal to reprise the role of Gollum in Peter Jackson’s two-part The Hobbit, which begins shooting on location in New Zealand in February.

Observes the site, “Serkis will join returning cast members Cate Blanchett and Elijah Wood. Wood’s participation was made official last week after Deadline first revealed his negotiations. According to sources, others who appeared in The Lord of the Rings poised to return at this point include Ian McKellen (who’s still working out a deal to return as Gandalf in a major role), Christopher Lee is in talks to reprise the wizard Saruman, and Ian Holm to return as an older version of Bilbo Baggins (Martin Freeman is playing that title role in the two new movies).”

It is, of course, Gollum who introduces the ring to Bilbo, thus setting up events that take place in the Lord of the Rings trilogy.

Of Serkis, who will be portraying Caesar in this summer’s Caesar: Rise of the Apes, Deadline notes, “Serkis will likely be there early in the shoot. The chameleon actor, who has become a fixture in Jackson’s movies, will do reshoots for The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn. Serkis plays Captain Haddock in the film, a collaboration between Jackson and Steven Spielberg.”
