Another Middle-Earth First Look: 'The Hobbit' Dwarves Gloin & Oin

July 8, 2011

Never toss a dwarf! We've got another awesome photo from Peter Jackson's The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (and There And Back Again) to feature this morning, following that epic first look just yesterday at dwarves Dori, Nori and Ori. This time we get to meet Oin (John Callen) and Gloin (Peter Hambleton). Gloin is the father of Gimli, the dwarf we all came to love in Lord of the Rings, that John Rhys-Davies perfectly portrayed. Together, with all of the dwarves, they accompany Bilbo on the Quest of Erebor where they encounter Smaug and Gollum. Check out the photo below via Collider and stay tuned for plenty more.

We expect to see plenty more first look photos (at least for all the dwarves), but for now here's Gloin & Oin!


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.

These are great! I"m still a bit puzzled how Jackson's gonna turn or stretch  the Hobbit into two back to back 2 1/2 hour movies....

The trek through the misty mountains to rivendale could take up 2 hours alone with Jackson behind the camera. The troll camp encounter, the goblin fortress in the misty mountains, Bilbos first encounter with gollum and finding the ring all before they reach rivendale.....sooo I can very much see how he can do it. I hope honestly Bards battle with smaug takes up like an hour in the 2nd one. Cant wait for Smaug its gonna be so badass.

Something about their faces looks off to me. They look like oompa loompas.

Craig on Jul 11, 2011


Because dwarves are supposed to look human eh? Faces look off...jesus. You ever seen a fantasy dwarf? Tell me, how would their faces look "on?" I see the one is holding a staff. Are you going to bitch about how dwarves don't fight with axes too?
