The Comic-Con is an annual event that always takes place in July in San Diego, Calif., bringing the latest on pop and geek world, gathering a huge legion of fans and professionals of TV, film, comics, games and more. Among the highlights of the event are the panels of questions and answers, in which actors and producers comment, before a crowd in the audience, the most recent and what to expect from the future of new productions.
The presentation of Peter Jackson at Comic-Con this year had an air of farewell. Finally, after The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, the director should not return to Comic-Con with a new work based on JRR Tolkein.
Jackson was accompanied screenwriter Philippa Boyens and actors Benedict Cumberbatch, Cate Blanchett, Orlando Bloom, Evangeline Lilly, Lee Pace, Luke Evans, Andy Serkis, Elijah Wood and Graham McTavish.
The staff spoke a little about their relationships with the work, and their influences on the process of production. Jackson said he is still working on the film, performing edits and making animations and motion capture sequences for long big action scenes.
The actor Benedict Cumberbatch has revealed that both makes as Sauron Smaug in the new film, and said it difficult to interpret the characters with motion capture technique. Serkis, on the other hand, commented that Gollum live completely changed his life.
Cate Blanchett told who played Bard in a school play of The Hobbit and said he loved working with Ian McKellen more now because barely had chance to share scenes with him in the trilogy The Lord of the Rings.
