Stunning ‘The Hobbit’ Photorealistic Portrait Of Richard Armitage’s Thorin Oakenshield: “Imminent Attack”
Dark Jackal 32 has put together this stellar ‘The Hobbit’ portrait centering on Richard Armitage’s Thorin Oakenshield. The artist posted the following description for the “Imminent Attack” piece: “Thorin Oakenshield in The Hobbit. This is my first attempt at CG art. I sketched an initial black and white drawing in pencil based on a screencap reference then scanned it into Photoshop CS6 for painting. Things I’ve learned so far; fur is fun, beards rock, and long wavy hair is a nightmare. Had I actually recorded the number of hours spent on this I would never again pick up a stylus. Good thing I have no concept of time.”
The official character description Warner Bros. Pictures released for Thorin is as follows: “As a young Dwarf Prince, Thorin witnessed the destruction and terror wrought when a great fire-breathing dragon attacked the Dwarf Kingdom of the Lonely Mountain. When no one came to the aid of the surviving Dwarves, a once proud and noble race was forced into exile. Now, as the strong, fearless fighter and respected leader of The Company of Dwarves, Thorin is determined to reclaim his homeland and destroy the beast that brought such misery upon his people.” Check out a more detailed look at the piece below.
Henry Cavill Speaks On Christopher Nolan’s Involvement With ‘Man Of Steel’ & Superman’s Vulnerability
In the current cover story for F*** Magazine, Henry Cavill speaks in detail about his career and Zack Snyder’s upcoming Superman movie, ‘Man of Steel.’ A few excerpts from the interview have now arrived online courtesy of the good people over at CBM. One of the topics Cavill touched on was the extent of the ‘Dark Knight’ trilogy director and ‘Man of Steel’ producer Christopher Nolan’s involvement with the project. The actor says once camera’s rolled, it was all Zack Snyder. “Chris Nolan wasn’t there during the production itself, although I’m not sure how much work was done behind the scenes. I’m sure Zack had a phone call or two with him, but this is definitely Zack’s baby. He was the man in charge, and we created the character together, as opposed to having too many outside influences.”
Henry Cavill also added that Zack Snyder is very much a collaborative director and welcomed suggestions from his actors. “It’s a collaborative process and Zach wants us to talk to him about stuff and work with him on his ideas. If you say, ‘how about I do this,’ he’ll say ‘I don’t know if I like it yet, but give it a shot.’” Finally, the director and screenwriter’s have been forthcoming about the fact that there’s no kryptonite in ‘Man of Steel,’ but Cavill says he strived to make Superman vulnerable in other ways. “Again, it comes back to the human element; because he’s alone and there’s no one like him. That must be incredibly scary and lonely not to know who you are or what you are, and trying to find out what makes sens. Where’s your baseline? What do you draw from? Where do you draw a limit with the power you have? In itself, that’s an incredible weakness.” Pick up the latest issue of F*** Magazine for the full interview.

Chris Pine (Captain James T. Kirk), Zachary Quinto (Spock), Zoe Saldana (Uhura), John Cho (Sulu), Bruce Greenwood (Christopher Pike), Simon Pegg (Scotty), Karl Urban (Bones), and Anton Yelchin (Pavel Chekov) reprise their roles from the 2009 ‘Star Trek’ original, with new parts for the likes of Benedict Cumberbatch, Alice Eve, Noel Clarke, Nazneen Contractor and Peter Weller. ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ is directed by J.J. Abrams with a script by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci and Damon Lindelof. The film is opening on May 9th in the UK, while the film bows in the US on May 17th. The May 9th opening date will see the film in IMAX 3D, 3D and 2D theaters. ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ will arrive in US IMAX theaters from May 15th.
What was the first thing you did when found out you were doing ‘Star Trek Into Darkness’?
Alice Eve: J.J. phoned me up and gave me a pre-amble for a good 20 minutes. I had to pull over. He asked me if I was committed and if I was interested in ‘Star Trek’ and if I understood what the costumes were and the requirements were and I said “yes” to all of it. But I didn’t still know if he wanted me to be a part of it, or if he wanted to tell me what he was going to go and do. So, I said, “I’m sorry, are you offering me this film?” And he said, “Yes, that’s what’s happening, yes.” I said, “Thanks very much.” (Laughs) And then I went home and saw my brother, who I had tired from making him run these lines with me, and went like that [makes the ‘live long and prosper’ sign]. It was probably one of my cooler moments (laughs).
Hughjackmania has debuted these new looks at Hugh Jackman on the set of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ as the Wolverine. ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the seventh installment in the ‘X-Men’ film series, commenced filming last month in Montreal, Canada. It will be the first film in the ‘X-Men’ film series to be filmed in 3D.
Director Bryan Singer recently announced that ‘Game of Thrones’ star Peter Dinklage joined the cast of ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past.’ Further reports bring word that the Emmy and Golden Globe Award winning actor will play the main antagonist in the film. With Singer merging past and present ‘X-Men’ actors for ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past,’ the director also announced that Anna Paquin (Rogue), Ellen Page (Kitty Pryde), Halle Berry (Storm), Daniel Cudmore (Colossus) and Shawn Ashmore (Iceman) will be joining the film – which is ostensibly a sequel to ‘X-Men: First Class,’ but will prominently feature actors from the first ‘X-Men’ trilogy.
With the first trailer for ‘Gravity’ arriving online this Thursday, Warner Bros. Pictures has debuted, via Entertainment Tonight, this trailer teaser for Alfonso Cuaron‘s (Children Of Men, Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban) outer-space survival thriller. As Cuaron’s ‘Children Of Men’ is one of my favourite films of all time, I am ridiculously excited for ‘Gravity.’ Planned for a 3D release, ‘Gravity’ is written by Cuarón and his son, Jonás Cuarón. Sandra Bullock and George Clooney star. The film is set for October 4th release.
Sandra Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky (George Clooney) in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone–tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.
