That's actually Lee Pace's natural eyebrows.

They're big, bushy and black compared to his long, fine blonde hair.

Also isn't Thranduil described as having reddish hair like autumn leaves or something like that. If they're going to put the actor in a wig why not one of the correct colour?

His description in The Hobbit:
...and at the head of a long line of feasters sat a woodland king with a crown of leaves upon his golden hair, very much as Bombur had described the figure in his dream.
He was also a Sindar of Doriath who were a dark haired branch of Elves, but there were exceptions to the rule and Thranduil was one of those exceptions.

I stand corrected but you forgot the next bit of the description
and at the head of a long line of feasters sat a woodland king with a crown of leaves upon his golden hair, very much as Bombur had described the figure in his dream. And he had big, bushy, black eyebrows that didn't match his golden hair and stood out a mile.

Thanks for the pics.

I am purposely avoiding the trailers this time. Want it all to be a surprise for when I go to see the film.

However... those dwarves! I don't think I'll ever get used to them.


I love the poster you gave a link to a while ago:

Gorgeous!

Rivendell looks stunning and so does Gollum.

Haven't been this excited about a film for over 10 years - since Return of the King.

This will be a very long Autumn.....

That person that said ''A dark power has found a way back into the world'' is Radagast?

Either way, I'm super excited for this movie.

Still a shame they're not showing us any 48fps footage though...

Nice! I see Radagast the Brown. He may send the eagles at one point! I really don't care if it's 3d or 48fps I just want to see it now.
