The Return Of The Thing

la_ca_0908_the_hobbit_battle_five_armies_197Peter Jackson wraps up the Hobbit trilogy on Wednesday, and he’s in this week’s NOW for a Q&A along with co-writer Philippa Boyens and actor Lee Pace, all three of them having blown into town last week for the Canadian premiere of The Battle of the Five Armies and the requisite round table.

Play the audio clips, they’re delightful; I might not think much of this particular trilogy, but Peter Jackson is always fun to sit down with, and he brings out some real playfulness in Pace, too.

You’ll also find my exclusive Q&A with Martin Freeman, whose Bilbo Baggins remains the one thing I genuinely care about over eight long, CG-filled hours. So there.
