Peter Jackson's Facebook Page

The real charm of this page is in the video blog installments for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, the first part of the filmed version of the book due out December 14, 2012. Each video blog entry runs about 13 minutes and features Jackson walking us through the behind-the-scenes progress of the film. You will have to scroll through the page to pick out these episodes (picking through the entries for Tintin as you go)—or you can look them up on YouTube for a more immediate find.
