Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release
I still don't get people making fun of this. Look at the other current critically loved literary fantasy adaption, each book is broken own into ten hours (and they still leave a ton out of those books).
Some of the very best adaptions have been in long form, so I love the fact that we can see that for the Hobbit (though I do wish LOTR) could have been the material to be broken into long form. But that type of gamble was never, ever going to be possible (I mean just getting three long films approved was next to impossible, and then to get so much additional material released on top of that, was awesome).
All this anguish over a children's book.
They couldn't hit an elephant at this distance.
