Balin & Dwalin from The Hobbit

Who's up next in the on-going reveal of the Company of Dwarves from Peter Jackson's The Hobbit? Well it's Balin (Ken Stott) and Dwalin (Graham McTavish) of course! TIME has the latest first look unveiling for these two, following Bombur, Bofur & Bifur from just a few days ago. Dwarf Lords in their own right, Balin and Dwalin are close relatives of Thorin Oakenshield. Beyond this, these brothers are two of his most loyal and trusted friends… A powerful and bruising fighter, with a natural tendency to distrust anyone who is not a Dwarf, particularly anyone who might be an Elf, Dwalin is not someone to cross lightly. See below!

Once again, this is the best quality photo we've currently got, so check out Balin & Dwalin from The Hobbit.

Balin & Dwalin from The Hobbit

In a hole in the ground there lived a Hobbit… The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson in two separate parts, is set in Middle-earth 60 years before Tolkien's Lord of the Rings, which Jackson and his filmmaking team brought to the big screen in a trilogy ten years ago. The Hobbit films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, will be shot consecutively in digital 3D using the latest camera and stereo technology. The Hobbit follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. The first part of The Hobbit hits theaters December 2012.

They just barely starting shooting so there wouldn't be any footage to cut a trailer. We'll probably see a small teaser come december of next spring.

They have shot 54 days of footage, albeit all interior from what I can gather from the blog videos. I think we will see a teaser much sooner then december. Hoping.

@6d9111011add6493f3e6346083234639:disqus : Seriously? Have you ever read the book?!? Hint: there are a certain 13 dwarves who convince a certain Hobbit to join their mission, hence the plot of the book, hence the plot of the movie. Sure, there are plenty of other "characters" but these are pretty important.

No seriously, who are those guys? Snippets of pics don't mean anything, show me something together and we I'm not a hater, just think that having made those 3 great movies doesn't mean he will be successful in those prequels (hope for him he will tho) There are more expectations those times around...
