A surprising bit of casting and, I think, a very interesting one. Billy is a remarkably good actor from some of the other serious roles I've seen him in and should fit the role well. :D

That barrel scene is gonna be soooooo wonderful! :D

I think that some of the soundtrack they were playing was new as well (the horns part was from Two Towers - the Riders of Rohan type music) - sounds sumptuous as well as looking it. Nice to see Andy Serkis too - he is my utter CGI god! :lol:

Hollywood has no sense of humour.

A popular pub and music venue called The Hobbit has been threatened with legal action by US movie lawyers.

The article does say that they have traded under that name for twenty years so I would have thought that a court would rule their favour. :think:
