Friday Film News: The Hobbit and Harry Potter Updates

Tremendous thanks to everyone who responded to my poll yesterday about the best time travel stories. I'll be replying to comments shortly.

For now, I simply have to say that two news items have utterly made my day:

First, confirmation of those lovely rumors about The Hobbit (casting spoiler alert!): Benedict Cumberbatch will be voicing (and portraying via motion capture) the dragon Smaug and also voicing the Necromancer.

Second, yesterday's new trailer for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part Two is nothing short of awe-inspiring.

See here:



Happy Friday, everyone!


They debated long on what was to be done, but they could think of no way of getting rid of Smaug - which had always been a weak point in their plans, as Bilbo felt inclined to point out.
