‘The Hobbit’ releases production footage; skipping Comic-Con

The bad news is that Peter Jackson and friends won’t be appearing at Comic-Con. The good news is that we have a behind the scenes look at The Hobbit production, including fight training and dwarf calisthenics, from the past couple week. You also get to see Orlando Bloom get ridden from behind by a woman.

Some of the set pieces that we haven’t seen in awhile still look amazing even when non-digitally enhanced. The shot at the end is a perfect example of how much better things are with the magic of Hollywood though. Real life is for suckers!
