Peter Jackson has posted a brand spanking new clip from that The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, which features Bilbo meeting Gollum and his split personality for the first time. I absolutely sprung a hobbit in my pants while watching this clip, because it’s exactly as I imagined when I first read The Hobbit back in the Second Age of my life. This scene has to be considered as one of the most iconic events in Tolkien’s Middle-Earth, because this is where Sauron’s return is solidified due to Bilbo scamming the One Ring from Gollum/Smeagol.
As usual Andy Serkis steals the show in this clip as Gollum and Smeagol, and the whole, “I wasn’t talking to you!” line is a classic. I was also pleased by Martin Freeman’s performance as Bilbo, but damn, Serkis has to be the best CG actor on the face of the planet. F*ck I can’t wait for tomorrow night! You can check out the Bilbo meets Gollum clip after the break. You’ve been wishing someone would give Serkis a damn award already…
