An Amusing Poster for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey By Aidan Moher September 27th, 201211 Responses Pretty fun, reminds me of The Muppets. And, really, that dwarf at the top is far too good looking. And, I want whatever it is Bombur is eating. Responses Dave Thompson September 27, 2012 at 11:09 am What a great poster! (I’m actually glad Thorin isn’t the only handsome dwarf in the bunch.) Link Aidan Moher September 27, 2012 at 11:11 am When we first saw the Dwarfs, I was a little taken aback by how far off they were from the pictures I had in my head, and compared to the Dwarfs in Jackson’s Lord of the Rings. Since then, though, I’ve come to love the sheer variety in their appearance. It really is wonderful, and true-to-life. Great stuff. Link Scott September 27, 2012 at 12:21 pm Love it. Very humorous! It actually reminds me of this scene from LABYRINTH (which s a good thing!) http://instantviewreview.files.wordpress.com/2011/07/goblins-with-glowing-red-eyes-labyrinth-9029050-1920-1080.jpg Link Charlotte September 27, 2012 at 1:07 pm Lol at the handsome dwarf. I think Aidan Turner was referred to as a celebrity (or heartthrob? Eugh) or something similar in one of the production videos. Link Aidan Moher September 27, 2012 at 1:08 pm @Scott — Between The Muppets and Labyrinth, there’s clearly a Jim Henson vibe to the poster. @Charlotte — It must be the name. Link Ross September 27, 2012 at 1:50 pm I totally agree with you… At first I saw these guys and thought “meh” but now I feel like they are perfect! I think Nori and Ori are my two favorites so far. Still a little unsure about Thorin’s look, but hopefully the performance makes up for his quasi-metal look. Link Chris September 27, 2012 at 6:48 pm The dwarf on the middle right looks like he has a barcode imprinted on the top of his head. Link Danie G September 28, 2012 at 12:14 pm Could you imagine this poster with a bunch of Gimli clones? I’m SO glad that Peter Jackson has given them individual personalities – I think they are all wonderful! Link Blake Charlton September 29, 2012 at 10:05 am there’s gonna be too much hair in this movie Link Locusmortis September 29, 2012 at 12:06 pm I didn’t know that the dwarves had an Amish sect Link AM Lyvers October 2, 2012 at 3:32 pm I am so excited for this, but to be honest I don’t know if that’s because of my love for the Hobbit or my love for Richard Armitage, Martin Freeman, Lee Pace, and Ian McKellen. Hmmm. Well I guess that guy at the top is supposed to get the girls like Orlando Bloom did with Legolas. Link Leave a Response Name Email Website Cancel reply Subscribe to these comments?
