    Can’t wait, although I’m still catching my breath with all the good flicks that have come out and will be coming out this year. Very good news about Ian Holm reprising the Old Bilbo Baggins, and also it seems as if the younger actor must sound a bit like Ian as well. If so kudos to Jackson once again.
