I've finished my evening with a wander on to the Hobbit movie blog site - The Hobbit Blog - and can heartily recommend it. It's full of good stuff such as the video blogs of the production. Apparently Andy Serkis is now a second unit director as well as Gollum... and the bits with him doing Gollum shown in the blogs were ... preciousss... :-)
There were scenes in Bag End, with the Dwarves around the table having their unexpected party, and Rivendell, with Hugo Weaving as Elrond again. Not sure what Galadriel is doing there, even if she is Elrond's mother-in-law, since she wasn't in the book, but what-the-heck, Cate Blanchett is just gorgeous in the role, and that wonderful white gown trailing on the floor - "Just don't ask me to walk in it," she quips.
John Rhys-Davies popped in and assured them that they'd now go all over the world with women chasing them. "As long as you're in costume," adds Peter Jackson.
I really like that every single Dwarf is different and has his own personality and it shows. I found this picture of the Dwarves together - isn't it delicious? Just click into it to get it bigger. I may use it for a computer desktop.
