Check out a video of The Hobbit actors Evangeline Lilly, Orlando Bloom, and Lee Pace as they watch a video of fans watching a video of the Desolation of Smaug trailer. Confused? If you want the full background, stop by YouTube to see the two girls (“Kili and Fili of TheOneRing.net”) excitedly reacting over the newly released teaser trailer. Director Peter Jackson then had his three elvish actors record their reactions to the fan video — and called it a “sequel.” It’s ridiculously adorable, so give it a look!
The first teaser trailer for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug has been released to the general public, giving us a great look at the upcoming film. Lee Pace fans: I hope you’re as thrilled as I am, as he has a very big presence in the trailer — his voiceover opens it! We get to see more of Thranduil in action along with his son, Legolas, played by Orlando Bloom. Evangeline Lilly and Luke Evans are also introduced, not to mention Smaug himself (voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch).
Today, the first poster for The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug was revealed! It’s actually a really beautiful graphic, so be sure to check out the hi-res version in the gallery. Along with the poster, the official Facebook for the film also broke the news that the teaser trailer for The Desolation of Smaug will be unveiled June 11th (at 10am PT/1pm ET). Hopefully we’ll get a great new look at Lee Pace’s Thranduil.
For fans who have been around a while, you may remember the initial rumor that Marvel was looking to cast Lee Pace in an upcoming film. In December of last year – amidst rumors that he was auditioning for a part in Guardians Of The Galaxy – Lee confirmed it was true. Unfortunately, he didn’t land the part of Peter Quill, AKA Star-Lord, as that went to “Parks and Recreation” star Chris Pratt.
However, earlier today, The Wrap broke the news that Lee Pace is in final negotiations to play the villain in Guardians Of The Galaxy. Specifics about his role are still unknown, and there’s a good chance that Marvel will keep the information locked tight until the film release in August 2014.
Fans are already speculating that Lee will be portraying The Controller (Ophelia Lovibond has just been cast as his aide) or Adam Warlock, who each have ties to The Avengers 2 baddie, Thanos.
I’ve finally obtained and capped Lincoln, so LPO now hosts over 280 Blu-ray screen caps of Lee Pace as Fernando Wood. There are a lot of shots of the entire courthouse, so he might be hard to find sometimes — just look for his unmistakeable hair! The images are very, very high quality, so I hope you enjoy.

Once again, thanks to Screencapped.net, LPO has Blu-ray captures of Lee Pace — this time, from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. If you recall (for those who have seen it), Lee appeared as the Elvenking Thranduil for a very brief amount of time within the first ten minutes of the movie. We got to see his costume – complete with a crown of berries – as well as him riding an elk. There are only a few caps from his cameo, but they are gorgeous. Hope you enjoy.
Thanks to MSN (and Bee for pointing it out to LPO), there’s a behind the scenes look at Lee Pace in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part II. In it, fans get some insight into the audition process as various clips of Lee reading for Garrett are shown. He also talks about the changing perception of vampires in popular culture, including Stephenie Meyer’s unique take on the supernatural beings. “It’s a real privilege to be part of the [Twilight] universe,” he says.
This clip is from the DVD/Blu-ray release of Breaking Dawn — Part II, which is now available to purchase (along with the DVD and option of digital download).
In less-than-exciting news, the third installment of The Hobbit – entitled There and Back Again – has been pushed back from its July 2014 release date. Keeping in line with the other five Tolkien adaptations, the film will now hits theaters in December 2014. Deadline reports:
Warner Bros has pushed the release date for The Hobbit: There And Back Again to December 17, 2014 from its original date of July 18, 2014. This is the final film in Peter Jackson’s trilogy adaptation of the JRR Tolkien novel. Hobbit 3 now avoids going up against X-Men: Days Of Future Past and so far is solo in the December 17th spot.

LPO now has just under 250 screen caps from The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn (Part II), thanks entirely to Screencapped.net. (Check them out if you’re looking for caps, especially for TV shows as they provide fast, HQ updates. They’re amazing!) The Blu-ray images are large and crisp, featuring Lee Pace as the nomadic vampire Garrett in the Twilight franchise. Enjoy!
After finally obtaining Alexis Lloyd’s 30 Beats, I was able to make nearly 400 screen caps from the film. Like every actor from the experimental flick, Lee Pace has two different scenes — one with Paz de la Huerta and the second with French actress, Vahina Giocante. There’s (brief) nudity in a couple of the stills and otherwise some adult situations, so they should be considered NSFW.
