According to Showmasters, Aidan Turner will be attending this year’s Entertainment and Media Show in London, England. The event – which celebrates film, TV, and comics – will take place on October 6th and 7th, and Aidan is scheduled to attend both days. The announcement states that he’ll be doing both photo shoots and talks throughout his stay. For those lucky enough to attend the event, tickets are already available at the Showmasters store. Hopefully some fans will send ATO information and photos from the event!
Edit: Due to film scheduling conflicts, Aidan will unfortunately no longer be attending EMS.
Many new film stills from The Hobbit have emerged thanks to an iTunes app. Three of the photos feature Aidan Turner as Kili, one of which also includes Fili (Dean O’Gorman). There’s not much else to report on with regards to the stills, but I should add that the app is worth checking out if you want more insight on the upcoming film.
ComingSoon.net has posted a first look at an official, “2013 16-month calendar” for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. Aidan is not only featured inside – along with his onscreen companion, Fili – but he’s actually on the cover as well! It seems like he’s going to be used heavily in promotion for the film, which I’m sure a lot of old and new fans of Aidan will appreciate.
Author Cassandra Clare has posted a major casting announcement on her official blog: Aidan Turner will portray Lucian “Luke Garroway” Graymark, a werewolf, in the upcoming film adaptation of The Mortal Instruments. Here’s what she had to say about Luke and Aidan:
Luke — Clary’s surrogate father figure, he has a hell of a dark past despite his current mild-mannered, bookstore-owning ways. The scars he bears belie his gentle heart — but he could tear you apart with his teeth if you threatened something he cared about.
Holly has long insisted Luke is her Fictional Boyfriend, so today, Holly, you have won:
He was terrific in “Being Human” and there’s massive buzz about his upcoming role in The Hobbit. He’s Irish so perhaps he and Robert Sheehan can sit around and talk about Irish things.
Looking more the flannel-shirt wearing Luke we know and love. Harald was so excited to work with him he was hopping around. I’m pretty excited about him playing Luke myself! Welcome Aidan!
Filming begins on August 20th, and the first film in the franchise – City of Bones – is expected to hit theaters nearly one year later on August 23, 2013.
Rumors on The Hobbit splitting into three movies – instead of the announced two – can now be put to rest. Peter Jackson confirmed on his official Facebook that the action-adventure film will become even more epic by expanding into a trilogy. Check out his blog post on the matter:
It is only at the end of a shoot that you finally get the chance to sit down and have a look at the film you have made. Recently Fran, Phil and I did just this when we watched for the first time an early cut of the first movie – and a large chunk of the second. We were really pleased with the way the story was coming together, in particular, the strength of the characters and the cast who have brought them to life. All of which gave rise to a simple question: do we take this chance to tell more of the tale? And the answer from our perspective as the filmmakers, and as fans, was an unreserved ‘yes.’
We know how much of the story of Bilbo Baggins, the Wizard Gandalf, the Dwarves of Erebor, the rise of the Necromancer, and the Battle of Dol Guldur will remain untold if we do not take this chance. The richness of the story of The Hobbit, as well as some of the related material in the appendices of The Lord of the Rings, allows us to tell the full story of the adventures of Bilbo Baggins and the part he played in the sometimes dangerous, but at all times exciting, history of Middle-earth.
So, without further ado and on behalf of New Line Cinema, Warner Bros. Pictures, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, Wingnut Films, and the entire cast and crew of The Hobbit films, I’d like to announce that two films will become three.
It has been an unexpected journey indeed, and in the words of Professor Tolkien himself, “a tale that grew in the telling.”
The eighth Hobbit production video has just been released, and it’s a doozy. It gives viewers more insight on the various sets, plus a look at Peter Jackson & Co. at 2012 Comic-Con. Lots of cast and crew are featured, saying their goodbyes, as the production videos featuring principle photography comes to a close. Unfortunately, there are only quick flashes of Aidan Turner as Kili throughout, but the rest of the video is worth checking out anyhow.
Here’s another look at Aidan Turner as Kili in Peter Jackson’s upcoming action-adventure fantasy, The Hobbit. The poster is apparently lining the halls at this year’s Comic-Con, according to ComingSoon.net. If you hit up the gallery on their site, there’s also a few more character posters (including one for Fili, Kili’s counterpart, and Galadriel). Hopefully they’ll officially release these posters soon for better quality.
Take a look at the amazing new scroll from The Hobbit, depicting numerous scenes from the upcoming film. Aidan Turner (as Kili) is heavily featured several times within the long, horizontal panel, which is hopefully an indication of how prominent his role will be. When you check out this “poster” in the gallery, remember to enlarge it for best viewing.
Among a reported 3500 members of cast and crew, Aidan Turner and Dean O’Gorman celebrated the completion of The Hobbit at a wrap party on Saturday night, July 7th. It was so large that it was actually held at the TSB Bank arena in Wellington, New Zealand! Peter Jackson’s assistant, Matt Dravitzki, stated that it was a strictly private affair for those involved with the production, so unfortunately the above picture is probably all we’ll see of Aidan from the event.
