The Hobbit: Behind the Battle of MoriaNovember 18th, 2013
During the filming of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, two lines appeared in the script:
“IMAGES. Thrain and Thorin, side by side, fighting Orcs… all around them a huge battle is briefly glimpsed.”
What came from that is the filming of one of the film’s many battles, this one shot over a period of 10 days. This clip takes us behind the scenes with second-unit director, Andy Serkis, and gives us a bit of insight into how it came together.
