Andy Serkis At Arclight Report
- Xoanon @ 00:09 PST
My family and I attended the showing of TTT with Andy Serkis at the Arclight last night. Andy was great. He did a lengthy Q&A after the screening, and stayed to sign photos, for hours afterwards. He offered some great insight into his work on the films, especially his drawing from the experiences of drug addicts to depict how the ring has tortured and ruined Gollum. He also treated us to a brief reprise of the debate of Gollum and Smeagol, demonstrating how he can go from one to the other in the blink of an eye.
He gave out a few teasers, notably, he does think the scene with him as Smeagol and the murder of his cousin when he finds the ring will be in ROTK. He also talked about a gag film they did with Gollum being interviewed Entertainment Tonight style, that hopefully will be on the DVD release.
