New Hobbit Clip Takes Us Behind The Scenes of the Battle of Moria

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey coming out on DVD means one thing: hours and hours of special features. This is a Peter Jackson Tolkien film, after all. This particular clip shows how the Battle of Moria flashbacks in the first movie were filmed, and we get to see a bit of Andy Serkis in his role as second-unit director.

In Case You Needed More of The Hobbit, Here’s Some Extended Footage From The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

This new clip from the extended edition of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey gives you the first look at the footage you will gaze at with joy early in your The Hobbit movie marathon, before you realize that you decided to marathon the extended versions of all three Hobbit films, just like The Lord of the Rings before them. And yet the new footage is still incredibly charming. The new scene, a sweet exchange between Bilbo and Elrond, is part of the 13 extra minutes of Hobbit-filled footage that will be available to watch in the extended cut of the first film in the trilogy.

The Hobbit Finally, Definitely Wrapped Filming. For Real This Time.

Middle Earth has already released the likes of Martin Freeman, Sir Ian McKellen, and Orlando Bloom back into the real world, and now, finally, even director Peter Jackson is saying goodbye to the The Hobbit sets. Filming for the final Hobbit film concluded on Friday, assuming, of course, that Jackson does not decide to split the book up further into six or twelve movies, at which point it will officially have more installments than Sherlock. Regardless, it was a melancholy day for Jackson and his crew as they wrapped up shooting, and Jackson shared photos of his final hours on the franchise that has been part of his life for 15 years on his Facebook page.

Be Stunned by the Unreal New Zealand Locations We Know as Middle Earth [VIDEO]


In case you were doubting whether the amazing scenery in The Lord of The Rings trilogy and The Hobbit were real, prepare to be rendered speechless. I know that the video ends with Martin Freeman basically telling me to go to New Zealand, but I don’t care that I’ve fallen for the tourism marketing. I want to go there and back again.
