The Hobbit is an upcoming epic fantasy film directed by no other than the same Peter Jackson, the director of several oscar awards winning trilogy The Lord of the Rings.
The Hobbit is based on 1937 novel of the same title by J. R. R. Tolkien. This film is a prequel to The Lord of the Rings film trilogy. Peter Jackson apart from directing the film is also co-writer and one of the producers of the film.
The Hobbit is being filmed in two parts. The first part is titled as The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey and the second part as The Hobbit: There and Back Again. To reduce production cost, both parts are being shot back to back in New Zealand. The release dates of these two movies are December 14, 2012 and December 13, 2013 respectively.
Peter Jackson is best known for his futuristic science fiction movies. Some of his top box-office hits include The Lord of the Rings Trilogy (2001-2003) and King Kong (2005).
The Misty Mountains by J. R. R. Tolkien :
Tolkien’s fantasy tales and poems are considered one of the best literary works ever produced by mankind. You can never be able to stay in the present while reading Tolkien’s work. Tolkien creates a new world and takes you away with him. We had been listening to stories of The Lord of the Rings since our childhood days through our grandfathers and we’ll keep telling our grandchildren the same stories through the forthcoming generations.
Read yourself The Misty Mountains by J. R. R. Tolkien and feel the same world being created around yourself again:
