I wasn't expecting this for another year at least... It seems like it wasn't that long ago that Jackson was talking about taking another offer and the stuido had released the actors before filming because of the Tolkein family's lawsuit.
My wife is going to hate me by the end of next year. The Avengers, Spider-man, Batman, The Hobbit... I'm going to be dragging her through nerd movies all damn year (and it still won't make us even for Chipwrecked).
