PAUL BETTANY AS GALADRIEL JESUS GOD I WOULD WATCH THE HELL OUT OF THAT

okay, i’m late to the party, it’s a post from 2010, but i just got pointed at it, and holy mother of mercy. seriously, i would WATCH THE HELL OUT OF THAT. there is no universe in which this should be not happening. this should happen in ALL the universes. especially this one. RIGHT NOW. or better yet like five years ago so i could be WATCHING IT RIGHT NOW.

ben barnes as arwen. *dies the ded of a happy ded thing that dies of happy dedness*

no, seriously, there is NOTHING about that casting that is not MADE. OF. AWESOME. and i swear, even though i knew going in that it was a genderswapped LotR my brain still did not in any way go “gosh, that’s a lot of women.” it went “oh look, pretty man!” a couple of times, and everything else was “HOLY SHIT THAT’S FREAKING PERFECT CASTING!” HELEN MIRREN AS SARUMAN OH YES PLEASE!!! *dies more*

Also–having been reminded by Tilda Swinton as Boromir, be still my beating heart, dear god, ahem, where was I. Oh yeah. I caught a clip of the Bowie/Swinton video a couple nights ago. Please, can’t they just get permission from their partners to make one child? I want to see what species it is. I’m betting elf.
