Jackson’s Empire Five

“There’s a new Jackson Five in town,” Empire magazine says. “The December issue of Empire [features] five gorgeous 3D lenticular covers to celebrate The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.” “Your choices are; Galadriel (Cate Blanchett), the elf queen; Bilbo (Martin Freeman), the titular halfling; Gandalf (Ian McKellen) reprising his wizard role; Gollum (Andy Serkis), the twisted Ring addict, and Thorin Oakenshield (Richard Armitage). In other words, our five covers give you a good cross-section of Middle-earth’s varied population. They’re also quite beautiful things and they appear to move and breathe on their own, which is rather lovely.”
