Peter Jackson gathers his dwarves for “Hobbit” photo

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: With all of the “Hobbit” news coming out of Peter Jackson’s New Zealand production house, one would assume the director made the long journey to San Diego’s Comic-Con to tease footage. Instead, he has taken to the Web to release key teasers, videos and images to indirectly prove that in this day of interconnected social media, Comic-Con’s time might have come and gone.

Take, for instance, this new picture of Jackson’s “Hobbit” dwarves, assembled together for the first time and posted over at TheOneRing.net. Pictured above are Jed Brophy as Nori, Dean O’Gorman as Fili, Mark Hadlow as Dori, James Nesbitt as Bofur, Peter Hambleton as Gloin, Graham McTavish as Dwalin, Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield, Ken Stott as Balin, John Callen as Oin, Stephen Hunter as Bombur, William Kircher as Bifur, Adam Brown as Ori and Aidan Turner as Kili.

It’s a great shot … and unlike the “Avengers” trailer, you don’t have to wait a year and a day to see it for yourself. Jackson knows how best to tease his audience. Show them what you have, and let them decide for themselves. Good for you, sir. We continue to applaud your decisions!

As if you didn’t know, Jackson’s filming “The Hobbit” as we speak. The first part, “An Unexpected Journey,” will be in theaters December 2012.
