Hopefully by now you’ve all seen The Hobbit production diaries. If you haven’t, suffice to say Peter Jackson’s adaptation looks to be shaping up quite nicely. The latest one describes the film’s innovative cameras, the Red One Epic, which shoots in 5K resolution at 48 frames a second — in 3D no less. What does that mean for cinema as a whole? Who knows. But it could be a serious game changer, even more so than James Cameron’s Avatar was back in 2009.
With all this anticipation for The Hobbit, surely a teaser trailer should be dropping soon. After all, it was about one year ahead of Fellowship that we got that first teaser, and it was a doozy. IGN recently got to chat with Gollum himself, actor/motion-capture performer Andy Serkis, and we asked him that very question. His response? “There will be a trailer fairly soon, actually. Around Christmas time, I believe.”
If that’s the case, there are two likely candidates for where that teaser might run- Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, opening December 16th, almost one year to the day from The Hobbit’s first release. Or — the more likely scenario — it will appear in front of Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin, a film produced by Peter Jackson that co-stars Andy Serkis and opens December 21st. While the decorated actor, who’s hoping to nab an Oscar nod for his work on this year’s Rise of the Planet of the Apes, was not sure of which film it would be attached to, he was confident we’d see one very, very soon. “It’s just around the corner,” he gleefully noted with a laugh.
