Oops! My first read through picked up an implication from you that no one dies...and that was what I responded too. My bad.

TORN has published our first look at Thranduil as played by Lee Pace.

Additionally, there's a low res shot of The Council of White, sans Radagast the Brown, unfortunately, but it's cool to see Christopher Lee back in action!

I like what I'm seeing here. I don't remember the book very well, so I can't judge faithfulness to the source material, but overall I like what is in both pictures.

When they're done, I hope they write a book adaptation of the Hobbit in three books.

And maybe then, adapt that into nine movies.

Then they can publish a 9-book novelization, which will launch Jackson's 27-move version!

Then will come his more modest four-film quadrilogy of "The Cat In The Hat."

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).

Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

I wonder where they will cut off each movie now. At what point do they meet Smaug? At what point will he die? The Battle of the Five Armies is presumably the bulk of movie 3.

Yeah, that's my concern. The previous split at least made sense to me, so I'm curious about the new split.

On the other hand, it might be better to not be spoiled.

Good questions ... and that's what I'm most interested in. Will each film feel like a film? Or merely a link in a chain? I thought FOTR worked brilliantly as a solid film (with a distinct beginning, middle and end). I hope the Hobbit films are similar.

I'll go on record and say that I'd rather be spoiled. If I had known that TTT would not include Shelob, I'd have been more satisfied with its ending the first time I saw it (and not felt like it was incomplete). Likewise, I'd rather not expect either of the first two Hobbit films to cover certain ground that is left for the next film.

It seems to me now that the first movie will end after Thorin and Company escape Mirkwood, and the second movie will be about arriving at Lake-town, investigating the Lonely Mountain, and the death of Smaug. Then the third will be about the aftermath of that and the Battle of Five Armies, along with Bilbo returning home.

Maybe they thought that Smaug and the battle would have been too much to cover in just one film.

All this anguish over a children's book.

Don't forget, they'll need to fit in whatever went down at Dol Guldur at some point after Gandalf leaving Thorin's company and before his return at the Battle of Five Armies. I suspect that if they want to emphasise the LotR prequel angle (Sauron/Necromancer etc.) then they'll save most of that stuff for the third film. It would feel a bit odd tough having the dragon slain in the second film, but then I've always had a hard time trying to figure out where the best narrative break points might be.

Wow, I havent been paying attention at all, I had no idea Lee Pace was in this thing.

He looks like Chloe Sevigny. Well, if they need to cast Thranduil's sister...
