A series of video interviews with Guillermo del Toro. Very positive I think, they show a film-maker who's not about to be bullied into anything.

Thursday 10th July
Part 1 - On finishing Hellboy II and where the character goes from here...
Part 2 - On the projects he's turned down over the years...
Part 3 - On a change of plans after being offered The Hobbit...

Friday 11th July
Part 4 - On the weight of expectation on his back for The Hobbit...
Part 5 - On the so-called "bridge" film and how it will be shaped...
Part 6 - On why characters like Bilbo appeal...

Saturday 12th July
Part 7 - On his grand ambitions from early on in his career...
Part 8 - On learning when to say no...
Part 9 - On the Mimic experience, and talk of a special edition...

Some very positive ideas coming out in the wash. Probably the most interesting for me is this:

When Tolkien wrote the book he was not making a prequel ... and if there are gaps in the logic of the use or the powers of the ring between the first film and the trilogy, they will be the same gaps that Tolkien had writing the book. We'll try to deal with it, but I'm not going to betray the spirit of the book in order to fit the cinematic incarnation.
