Official Bond and Bilbo pics pop up online

January 15th, 2012 by Marc Comments

Well, they’re not going to set the world on fire, but these two images represent offical looks at Bilbo Baggins in the upcoming The Hobbit, in the image Bilbo is rather beaten looking and is quite reminescent of Andy Serkis pre-Gollum in the movies. Is The Ring having an effect? Martin freeman plays Bilbo. The picture is courtesy of Empire.

The second image is the first official look at Daniel Craig as James Bond in the upcoming Skyfall. The image is very unusual as far as first looks go as they tend to feature Bond with a sexy woman or large weapon (behave)… but this image, taken at  London’s Four Seasons shows a reflective Bond… could Mendes be aiming for a 007 think-piece?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
