    That's roughly a 60% error margin in the time estimate, Russ. (The last movie came in 2003)

    I don't get it. If LOTR came out in 2003, Hobbit should came out in 1943. After all, LOTR starts 60 years after The Hobbit story.

    Simple. There was a war going on.

    I'm almost positive that you know, but if you can believe it... that game is actually being RELEASED (usual DNF caveats). Now if only they could go back in time and release it when I still wanted to play it!

    Seriously, every year that Jackson spends out there is just another blu-ray full of 8-12 hours of "extra footage" of hobbits cleaning their furry toes in the midst of the rolling hills and shires of NZ. :biggrin: Fans should be THRILLED!... I mean, in the commentary when you hear people yelling to be allowed to go home, always going in the background? Hell YES I'll pay 1.5 million for that *audio track in a special edition!

    *Note: comes with 'life sized' resin-model hobbit foot, with REAL hair on the top! Ooooohhhh... toe hair... plush.

    :rofl:

    ...And here I thought I'd kept track of all the reasons to hate Hitler! You know, I bet if one of his 'obersturmbaunbunnyloverfunnypantsenziet' had told him that he'd delay this film by 60 years... well... maybe that would have been a "teachable moment". :wink:
