It's been almost three months since the first video blog from The Hobbit but Peter Jackson has decided to make it up to us with this new behind-the-scenes look his latest J.R.R. Tolkien adaptation, courtesy of Jackson's Facebook page. A little less gaiety this time out, and not as much fascinating footage, but the production does appear to be going swimmingly now that the "first block" of shooting has concluded for the summer, giving the crew a few months off before The Hobbit goes back in front of the cameras in September. Among the choice tidbits this time out: Andy Serkis playing Gollum and directing the 2nd Unit, Martin Freeman performing with Hugo Weaving and a hefty dose of location scouting in New Zealand.
