It isn’t very often that I don’t even touch my computer until late in the afternoon. Of course it would be on one of those rare days that there would be something of interest to an Armitage fangirl! I’m a little behind, but the wait was worth it. That being said, I still feel the need to ask: Mr. Armitage, why did we get to see so many of your castmates in plain clothes and talking and not you? Can’t you throw us a bone?
Anyway, I went through and made my own screencaps and a few of gifs.
Run Thorin, Run!
Anyone else enjoy the all to brief clip with Thorin and Galdalf chatting?
While I enjoyed those brief RA moments, I thought the vlog as a whole was pretty great. Some of my favorite moments included:
Seeing Bilbo spinning round in a barrel.
It was also fun to see Orlando Bloom back in his Legolas hair!
But my favorite part of the whole vlog? This:
Kiran Shah kicking ass as Legolas!
I don’t know about you all, but I’m so looking forward to the vlog PJ mentioned for the wrap of filming!

I included this screencap yesterday, but I love it so much I’m posting it again.
Thorin Oakenshield taking pictures!
Ever since seeing Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring I’ve longed to visit New Zealand, to see in person the beauty that Peter Jackson captured on screen. I can just imagine the excitement of the actors as they traveled to the various locations to film. I would be snapping as many pictures as I possibly could if I had such an opportunity. The actor my thoughts wonder to most on this production is Richard Armitage (in case that wasn’t obvious enough). His work has brought so much joy to my life that I can only wish the best for him. I can’t really explain the depth of my reaction to this image, but I love the idea of Thorin Oakenshield the tourist-that RA is having the time of his life and having wonderful, new experiences. Looking at this image puts a huge smile on my face.
The Hobbit teaser trailer is up!!! It is sooo good! Definitely makes me excited for the movie, too bad it is a year away. And if it wasn’t enough goodness for me (yes, I know that is atrocious grammer)…Thorin sings and speaks in the trailer! Tolkien, Peter Jackson and of course Richard Armitage, what an irresistible combination! It is supposed to be available here. Or I was able to actually see it at Bccmee’s blog, she has posted it here.
Update: I’m not the only one, and I am certainly not the first to make some screencaps from the trailer…but I couldn’t help myself. 😉

Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield (And the back of Sir Ian McKellan's head as Gandalf)
More Thorin...because I can't help myself.
And since I loved Tolkien way before I’d ever heard of Richard Armitage, I’m pretty excited to see some of these returning faces from The Lord of the Rings!
Sir Ian McKellan returning as Gandalf
Cate Blanchett as Galadriel
Elijah Wood as Frodo and Ian Holm as the older Biblo
Although, I’m greatly looking forward to seeing how Martin Freeman plays Bilbo!
