The Hobbit in Empire


UK-based movie magazine Empire features The Lord of the Rings prequel, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012). Much like a Peter Jackson movie, its December issue is bound to be larger than Middle-earth. The magazine comes in a special 3D "lenticular" cover. When I browsed "lenticular" in an online dictionary, I was referred to "testicular," a linguistic unit elf queen Galadriel, will no doubt, find amusing.


There are five covers to choose from, each featuring a character from the film: Bilbo (Martin Freeman), Galadriel (Cate Blanchett), Gandalf (Ian McKellen), Gollum (Andy Serkis), and Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage), an exiled dwarven king. Although elven hearthrob Legolas (Orlando Bloom) appears in the film, he's not good enough for Empire.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey will have its world premiere in New Zealand on November 28. No release date has been set for Manila. For the meantime, the magazines will do.

Three movies out of THe Hobbit?! I've read it and it's one book. Grabe nakakabitin naman kapag ganyan. Pang-asar! It's an abomination! Babaguhin pa nila yung storya? I didn't read Gandalf meeting Galadriel. Ewan!

Anyway, I'm really looking forward to this. I'm going to read the LOTR trilogy too. Addicted eh!

Mr. Tripster: I agree. TUrning The Hobbit into a trilogy is stretching it a bit. Like you said, it's only one book.

I tried reading Lord of the Rings. I was only able to finish 100 hundred pages. I ran out of patience. Those hobbits keep on eating, singing, whatever, whatever, hehe. :D
