First Look: Orlando Bloom and Luke Evans in 'There and Back Again'

December 6, 2012

There and Back Again

This is where things get interesting. In theaters next week is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. But like Fellowship of the Rings, this is the first movie in a trilogy and it begins another lengthy adventure in Middle Earth. There are characters who don't even appear in this one at all, waiting to be introduced in the next movie, The Desolation of Smaug, next year. Two of them are two very recognizable - Orlando Bloom, returning as Legolas, as well as Luke Evans playing Bard the Bowman. EW has unveiled our very first look at these two, though they say this is from The Hobbit: There and Back Again, the finale coming 2014.

Here is Bard and Legolas, as debuted on We won't see much more of these two until 2013 at least.

Orlando Bloom & Luke Evans in The Hobbit: There and Back Again

In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit… J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit, being directed by Peter Jackson as three separate movies, 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 films, with screenplays by Fran Walsh, Philippa Boyens, Guillermo del Toro and Peter Jackson, were shot consecutively in 48FPS 3D using the latest cameras. The Hobbit follows the journey of Bilbo Baggins, played by Martin Freeman, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor. The Desolation of Smaug arrives in theaters December 13th, 2013, with The Hobbit: There and Back Again finishing it up July 18th, 2014.

    "We won't see much more of these two until 2013 at least" That means I will have to wait till next year because I almost was comatose by the time Prancing Pony sequence appeared in FOTR...........I cannot stand hobbits, in fact detest them, but given Jackson worships at their hairy feet, I guess its the best he can do.................. I was so hopeful when I heard Guillermo del Toro was intent on making a bridge film THAT really interested me, but then Jackson took over and the obsession began AGAIN............. UGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
