Riddle Me This, Bilbo: What Have We Got in Our ‘Hobbit’ Clip & Giveaway?
What would you say is the seminal scene in Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey"?
We're willing to bet you didn't take more than three guesses to at least consider the moment when Bilbo (Martin Freeman) engages in a battle of wits and riddles with Gollum (Andy Serkis).
You're not the only one who thinks highly of it. "I loved that, absolutely loved it. And I'm so glad it's kind of gone over well. I do think it's a highlight of the film, 'cause it's a highlight of the book," Freeman told Yahoo Movies last year.
In our exclusive Blu-ray clip above, which can be found in the new "Hobbit" Extended Edition, you can find out exactly how director Peter Jackson captured the essence of that scene by repeatedly shooting it over a 10-day period. If you're a fan of Middle-earth, it's fascinating stuff. And it's just one minute of the nearly nine hours of extras.
To celebrate today's release of "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Extended Edition" – which also includes an extra 13 minutes of new film footage – we're doing a giveaway! Five lucky Yahoo Movies Twitter followers will each receive a Blu-ray copy of the new Extended Edition.
