Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield with Orcrist

“Richard Armitage plays Thorin Oakenshield, the leader of the company of dwarves, who is fiercely determined to reclaim the dwarves’ kingdom. ‘He has this vision of what he’s going to do for his people.'” – EW.com

The next issue of Entertainment Weekly (#1215) once again nabs exclusive new images from The Hobbit production, including a few dwarf heavy scenes:

Are the dwarves ready to follow Bilbo into what might become a watery grave? Sure looks like it!

“Dwarves Fili (Dean O’Gorman, far left), Kili (Aidan Turner), Dori (Mark Hadlow), and Nori (Jed Brophy) trek through mountainous terrain in Middle-Earth. ‘This movie has been a great opportunity for all of us to get fit,’ says Hadlow.” – EW.com

Expect more details and scans as soon as they become available.

Update 7/3/12:
If you are like me, you scoured the new-stands at the break of dawn today to find the only issue on sale is #1214.  The folk at Barnes&Noble said it would not likely be on their shelves until around the weekend (Fri/Sat).  I also noticed this on the EW.com site here (link probably won’t be permanent):

“‘Hobbit’: See new EW cover.
Dish from Peter Jackson and Co., plus a Comic-Con preview! Get a taste now, read it all in EW mag Friday!”

Friday eh?  Perhaps subscribers will get it sooner?  Do let me know if you’ve acquired it by means fair or foul before this!🙂
