Listen, we get it, Peter Jackson. You want to make sure the fans are included and involved in the run up to the "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" and that's pretty admirable -- the video blogs have been great -- but this parceling out of dwarves photos is exhausting already and frankly, kind of boring considering they all appear to be posing for a calendar instead of being shown in action or even on set.
Anyway, The Hitlist dutifully brings you two more dwarves, Fili and Kili, played by Dean O'Gorman and Aidan Turner. These two are the youngest of the group who participate in The Quest of Erebor, an adventure recounted in “Unfinished Tales” that takes place before the events in “The Hobbit,” in which Gandalf organizes the taking of Lonely Mountain whose treasure is guarded by the dragon Smaug. The brothers are part of a group of 12 dwarves and Thorin that accompany Bilbo on his journey.
And that’s really all you need to know -- the full picture is below. “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey” arrives in theaters on December 14, 2012.
