There’s a look at Andy Serkis all geared up during shooting of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, and one “after effects added” still of Gollum in the latest Empire Magazine. Don’t worry though, Gollum is still as slimy looking as ever.
This NerdBastard can’t help but think of that Jethro Tull song Iron Lung every time I see Gollum on the screen. Gollum also gets some well deserved cover time in the picture below.
What do you think? Word about the Internet lately is that this two picture plan to depict and explore the world of The Hobbit might be turned into a trilogy. Can it match the awesomeness and majesty of the LOTR trilogy?
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey hits theater screens on December 13th 2013. I know where I’ll be December 13th . . . do you?
The Interwebz, the breeding ground for great nerdy art. Crazy things like She-hulk testing out a new “jack hammer”, the secret behind just how outrageous Jem truly is, and other weird s#!t. There is also a lot of awesome things that we see on a daily basis and we’re lazy nerd bastards so we just round them all up once a week for your nerdgasm art lovin’.
ABOVE: Isn’t it nice when you see two pop culture icons hug it out and get along? As part of a series created by German artist Ingrid Aspöck of portraits of enemies hugging it out show us the lighter side to solving problems. Smile you son of a momma shark. [The Mary Sue]
Feudal Japan would have been a much deadlier place if samurai like Bobba Fett were around to kick some ass for their imperial lord. Just think, if he ever failed a mission he’d cut off his own head as punishment. Saves you all the work. [Obvious winner]
The Stay Puft Marshmallow man was the single most delicious villain ever to be a part of Ghostbusters franchise and in the above piece created by Matt Ferguson he looks downright awesome. Made in both a “Happy” and “Mad” Stay Puft version, this is how the movie posters should have been done in the 80’s. [Cakes and Comics]
Disney princesses have always been dressed as elegant and high class, here it looks like they’ve been dropped off in the middle of San Francisco circa right freaking now . The “hipster” princesses would be given free iced cafee Americano any time they needed a sip at my book store/coffee shop. [The Mary Sue]
And from Disney princesses to…half naked Disney Heroes. We’re pretty sure artist David Kawena was more then a bit generous with some of the bulges he drew though. Being able to wake a princess with a kiss is talent, but having a porn star sized wang, now that’s just showing off. [Geek Tyrant]
Skyrim has been invading everything lately, Internet meme jokes, parodies and even television shows, but The Simpsons? Really! He used to be a warrior like us, then he took a six pack of Duff to the belly. [GameFreaks]
Adapted from the antique “Cabinet Cards” of yesteryear, Alex Gross transformed these 4″ x 6″ photographs into a blend of pop culture and geek icons worthy of any household. Makes you wonder sometimes. [The Daily What]
Canadian artist Yue Wang may very well be the untapped talent in the great white north, with his amazing renderings of popular characters from anime, movies and video games. From the demon killing Dante from Devil May Cry to the high kicking Chun-Li of Street Fighter, Yue knows how to knock out a perfect set of curves. [You Bent My Wookie]
We all know the world is going to blow up, melt down or whatever since Mayans didn’t bother to make any more calenders. Speaking of calenders, why no go out in style with a pin-up girl every month. Created by Andrew Tarusov, this 12 month apocalyptic calendar makes watching the world burn that much better. [Blastr]
A battle of the ages, Monty Python and the Holy Grail‘s Black Knight vs. The Lord of the Rings’ Gandalf the Grey! This could take a while people, maybe there will be a victor by next week. [Geek Tyrant]
