Il problema con Lo Hobbit 03.12.152015-12-01:14:20
Nei contenuti speciali della trilogia de Lo Hobbit, Peter Jackson video e la troupe ammettono le difficoltà emerse durante la realizzazione dei film e come queste abbiano pesantemente (e negativamente) influito sulla visione d'insieme che il regista avrebbe voluto dare dell'adattamento del romanzo di Tolkien.
The above clip is from a behind-the-scenes video on the Battle of the Five Armies Blu-ray, and it features Peter Jackson, Andy Serkis, and other production personnel confessing that due to the director changeover -- del Toro left the project after nearly two years of pre-production -- Jackson hit the ground running but was never able to hit the reset button to get time to establish his own vision. In comparison, he spent years prepping the original Lord of the Rings trilogy, and on the Hobbit things got so bad that when they started shooting the titular Battle of Five Armies itself they were essentially just shooting B-roll: footage of people in costumes waving around swords, without any cohesive plan for how the sequence would actually play out. (A choice Jackson quote: "I didn't know what the hell I was doing.")
