Martin Freeman has a new interview with Total Film Magazine in which he opens up about the pressure of being in the ‘Hobbit’. The Hobbit is expected to become one of 2012’s biggest blockbusters, coming to the theaters mere years after the Lord of The Rings trilogy ended.
In the interview [via Film News UK], Freeman said, “It’s not really daunting. It is unexpected compared to where we were, but it's the same thing of telling the story and doing your bit, whether it's one or two or three films. There's just, you know, more of it! But there are so many of us involved, it doesn't really hang on anyone's shoulders."
Andy Serkis also weighed in about returning to his iconic motion capture role of Gollum, saying, "It was very strange hearing his voice again and finding my way back into the character. At first I felt like I was doing a weird sort of impersonation of someone I once played. It took me a couple of days to really dig deep, really connect with him beyond a superficial level. I've never been through that before."
‘The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey’ releases worldwide on the 14th of December, with the sequel ‘The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug’ releasing on the 13th of December in 2013, and the last film ‘The Hobbit: There and Back Again’ releasing on the 18th of July in 2014.
