Cumberbatch's Motion Capture Contortions Are The Best Thing To Come Out Of 'The Hobbit'

Given the chyron over one of the photos in this set, it’s safe to assume that this peek at Benedict Cumberbatch going through the motions as Smaug will eventually be part of a behind-the-scenes video. With a Peter Jackson film, the behind-the-scenes videos are half the fun. I’ve watched hours of Andy Serkis scampering like Gollum and acting from great heights at Naomi Watts. Here, of course, we have some images of the lovely Benedict Cumberbatch doing his best dragon. I thought it might be relevant to your interests.

  • Obtuse

    I must be the only person around here who enjoys the Hobbit films for what they are, and not for what they aren't. Oh well, I get to look forward to them. Woo.

  • Olivia Fowler

    They should have motion-captured his tonsils, too. O_o

  • Wigamer

    Ever since I realized it, all I see is young Dennis Quaid when I look at Cumby.

  • Wigamer

    This, I think.

  • Anne Cordelia

    Is that from Enemy Mine?? LOVE that movie!

  • Wigamer

    Innerspace. Also good, because Martin Short.

  • Anne Cordelia

    True that - I had forgotten that movie existed! I'm going to have to hunt down both of those and binge watch them this weekend.

  • Aside: it's been confirmed. January 19th is the premiere of Season 3 of "Sherlock".

  • Cumby's considerable acting talents aside, he's got quite the fine, plump booty for a white guy. I approve.

  • bastich

    There's a "Pokey" joke in there somewhere....

  • Fabius_Maximus

    Naomi Watts?

  • Calla Dain

    "King Kong"

  • Fabius_Maximus

    There were human actors in that movie?

    Header pic = Cumberbatch's O-face?

  • PDamian

    Jeebus, I hope not. That would be purely frightening.

  • $3647259

    Do I need an intervention? Because I'd still hit it if that was the case.
