I saw the light fade from the sky
On the wind I heard a sigh
As the snowflakes cover my fallen brothers
I will say this last goodbye

Night is now falling
So ends this day
The road is now calling
And I must away
Over hill and under tree
Through lands where never light has shone
By silver streams that run down to the sea

Under cloud, beneath the stars
Over snow one winter’s morn
I turn at last to paths that lead home
And though where the road then takes me
I cannot tell
We came all this way
But now comes the day
To bid you farewell
Many places I have been
Many sorrows I have seen
But I don’t...

Far away in the lush green grass of Hobbiton, Bilbo has a secret weapon against enemies trying to steal his precious ring. It may not be as impressive or dramatic as the methods he uses in the films but his house insurance policy saves him a lot of time, grief and money when something goes wrong.

Unfortunately the Baggins household doesn’t feature a burglar alarm, but it can still be insured against theft. This specialist insurance policy means that Bilbo can go away for weeks at a time without worrying about the safety of his hobbity home, resulting in many exciting adventures for the big...

Here's a rough transcript of the Hangout that Peter Jackson (PJ), Richard Armitage (RA), and Evangeline Lilly (EL) were in a few minutes ago. The quotes are not exact quotes, but rather, summaries. There is also a transcript of the new clip that was shown, the beginning of the barrel rider scene.

Q: Any pranks on set?
PJ: Ian McKellen loves napping, so I once sneaked up on him while he was napping between takes and yelled "And...Action!" causing Ian to jump up in surprise and straighten up as if he had to act.
EL: There wasn't really much time to do pranking; the best pranks take place on camera,...

Throughout the movie I had many thoughts and opinions, was too busy watching to write them down but some characters left lasting impressions and this article is sure to rank them out:

1. Thorin Oakenshield - His character goes through so much throughout this 144 minute movie, he is shown to embody the greed the dwarves are known for later to show the bravery they are also known for. By the end he has proven himself a worthy king who leads his army of fourteen{add or take} to make a difference. ooh and his fight scene with the bad guy was legendary!

~ Bilbo Baggins - He s a diplomat by all means,...

QUESTION: Can you talk about when you first met Peter Jackson and his collaborators, and how you came to write the song I See Fire for the film?

ED SHEERAN: I first met Peter in March. I did a show in Wellington and his daughter, Katie, came down. Then I was invited around for lunch the next day, we hung out, and it was fun. About six months later, I got a call asking if I wanted to be involved in the end credit song. So I instantly got a plane to New Zealand, met everyone that was involved in the film and watched the film. Then I wrote the song.

QUESTION: What was your reaction when you saw...

Oh, misty eye of the mountain below
Keep careful watch of my brothers' souls
And should the sky be filled with fire and smoke
Keep watching over Durin's son

If this is to end in fire
Then we should all burn together
Watch the flames climb high into the night
Calling out for the rope, stand by and we will
Watch the flames burn over and on
The mountain side

And if we should die tonight
Then we should all die together
Raise a glass of wine for the last time
Calling out for the rope
Prepare as we will
Watch the flames burn over and over
The mountain side

Desolation comes upon the sky

Now I see fire
Inside the mountain...

Far over the Misty Mountains rise
Leave us standing upon the heights
What was before, we see once more
Our kingdom a distant light

Fiery mountain beneath the moon
The words unspoken, we’ll be there soon
For home a song that echoes on
And all who find us will know the tune

Some folk we never forget
Some kind we never forgive
Haven’t seen the back of us yet
We’ll fight as long as we live
All eyes on the hidden door
To the Lonely Mountain borne
We’ll ride in the gathering storm
Until we get our long-forgotten gold

We lay under the Misty Mountains cold
In slumbers deep and dreams of gold
We must awake, our...

At Beorn’s Hall to Mirkwood:

- The company is chased to Beorn’s house by Beorn himself (Beorn doesn’t like dwarves, but when he discovers they’re running from Azog he helps them instead).

- "Beorn is the last shape-shifter in the whole of Middle-earth. Most of his kind were killed by Azog, so when Beorn finds out that The Company are fleeing from Azog, he agrees to help them."

- Beorn tells Gandalf that the rumors of "a great evil" in Dol Guldur are true, which is what makes Gandalf decide to go there himself and leave Thorin & Company to face Mirkwood alone.

At the Halls of the Elven-king...
