Some more images from the preview....



"and in the darkness bind them."
The One Ring, rendered in a very cool burning motif by the craftsmen at WETA Digital.


Here is a prime example of how Gollum will be modeled in CGI (eventhough this is NOT Gollum, but is a Troll). This skeletal framework will have muscle and skin added as "layers" after the motion of the figure is programmed first.


Orc Attack on Amon Hen … or at least it will be, when Jackson calls "Action!!"


Liv Tyler as Arwen Evenstar. If this one looks familiar, it’s because we’ve seen it before from an article by Woman’s Day magazine. This picture is taken on horseback, believed to be with Frodo before the crossing of the Bruinen into Rivendell.


Sir Ian McKellen IS Gandalf, and Gandalf means Ian!!!
