The Hobbit Completes Principle Photography (Again)

For the second and final time, The Hobbit trilogy has wrapped principle photography. Peter Jackson, who occasionally posted updates throughout the day on his Facebook profile, marked the occasion with a picture and below messages.
The last shot.

Big monitors, main unit. Small screens bottom right, splinter.

We're neck and neck ... Shooting our final shots at the same time.

10.32 pm. 4 or 5 takes so far.

No, wait ... Done! While I was typing this, we shot more takes and finished! Richard was fantastic. Splinter almost done. Minutes away.

Smiles and happiness... And sadness. Yikes, very sad.

1.08 am. A 20 hour day ... 15 years of Tolkien ... 771 days of shooting ...
Congrats to the cast and crew of The Hobbit.
