    You answered your own question. Two movies doubles the revenues while the costs are only marginally higher. Voila, two films.

    For some reason that's not accessible. You have to go in through the main link to the site. (Huh.... now I can get to it directly...)

    However, the sword from fan made version on TORN didn't so much cover another dwarf's face as it cut across his neck.

    FYI, that's Dwarvish for "More, please!" (feel free to accompany this post with the soaring cues from "The Bridge of Khazad-Dum"). :techman:

    Let us not go to Khazad'dum. It is a silly place.

    Zahadum is more like the thing.

    Trouble is, if the dwarves go there, Kosh won't be able to help them.

    Any word yet on whether Howard Shore will be returning to score the movie(s)? It would surely be a crime if he wasn't able to do it.

    Don't worry. He's definitely returning and has already started work on the scores.

    Damn, I was hoping for Hans Zimmer.

    You can see if it's cached, so either go to the main site or refresh.

    100% for certain. He told me so. (No, really, I asked him last October and he said he was already working on ideas.) I simply cannot wait to hear what he comes up with, either.

    No way. As much as I love Zimmer's work (and probably more so than most), I absolutely adore Shore's work with the trilogy and I would have been devastated if anyone other than himself scored The Hobbit films.

    Indeed. No Howard Shore would be akin to Gandalf being played someone other than Ian McKellen, IMO.

    Indeed. I am looking forward to hearing the Shire theme in full force to start off the movie. I can't wait to hear what themes he comes up with for the Dwarves.

    It's been awhile since we've had an update, but here's a brief interview Benedict Cumberbatch talking about Smaug (and the Necromancer) on The Jonathan Ross Show: Link.

    I'm excited to hear that the performance will be motion captured a la Gollum.
