    I'm interested to see where they stop in the story.


    More details:
    -Peter Jackson is directing again
    -The film will be split in 2 parts and tell the hobbit and nothing else (originally it was going to be a "Hobbit" and a "bridge" film)
    -Howard Shore is back to dazzle with the score for both films again
    -Most of the crew has actually returned, and the same vendors are being used for the effects/makeup/artistry
    -3D filming
    -Reprising roles: Andy Serkis (Gollum), Ian McKellen (Gandalf), Hugo Weaving (Elrond), Orlando Bloom (Legolas), Elijah Wood (Frodo),
    Couple other key actors: Smaug will be voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch, Young Bilbo is Martin Freeman, Beorn is Mikael Persbrandt

    Son I am excite.

    A piece of background in production:

    Anticipation for this movie is about as close to fanboydom excitement as I can get. :bounce2:

    +1 on the not for another year bit too.

    God, I'm looking forward to this. The interpretation of The Misty Mountains Cold in the trailer is SICK.

    I'm really looking forward to this, trailer looks great!


    Correction, Smaug will be voiced by Benedict Cumberbatch (Sherlock in the BBC series), Persbrandt will play Beorn though.

    Updated. Sorry about that!

    Peter Jackson's been known for some unique cinematography, and his take on 3D is different than what everyone else has currently done. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-57320959-1/peter-jackson-reveals-3d-secrets-behind-hobbit/

    This may actually be a 3D movie that doesn't make me gouge my eyes out. I'm still not getting my hopes up over that though.

    this will be a collective nerdgasm spanning the globe. given the pedigree of LoTR and the continuity in director/actors/crew i expect nothing less than brilliance.

    As somewhat that hasn't read Tolkien, the trailer fails to explain why I should give a shit about watching the film. I suppose it's only meant to give the fans boners.

    It's more of a long teaser than a trailer in that regard. I'd expect that the trailers following this one will fill you in better. More importantly than that though, why have you not read any of Tolkien's books?

    precisely; for once there's a movie that isn't made for the lowest common denominator.

    And it's a raging success. My boner that is. After seeing the trailer of course.

    The Lord Of The Rings trilogy is a mega popular and successful franchise that won an Academy award. It doesn't need you to give a shit about it. This is really more of a teaser than anything else, and it's assuming that enough people have seen the series that they don't need to get into specifics.

    Here's a synopsis of why "The Hobbit" done correctly will be awesome as shit:

    1. Lots of dwarven banter
    2. Gandalf
    3. A badass dragon that likes to hoard gold and kill dwarves and shit
    4. A great view of each of the different cultures. LotR doesn't focus on the actual elven/dwarven/human societies, whereas they are critical pieces of the Hobbit
    5. Andy Serkis is reprising as Gollum

    Also, read The Hobbit at least. If you can't stand dense Tolkien-literature, I understand and sympathize. The Hobbit is much easier to read than LotR.

    Hi Dr Huh, did I hurt you in the butt or something? Sorry if I did.


    Above responses aren't meant to be douchey just my genuine responses. 95% chance I won't watch the movie in theatres, but we'll see what the later previews are like.

    From your responses to my statements I can conclude: "You aren't human." :D You're missing out on some great literature.

    Joffrey,

    Why are you even commenting on this thread? It makes no sense. You haven't read Tolkien but you except a teaser to get you caught up to speed.
    :fu:

    No butt hurt here. I'm just saying this trailer isn't concerned about converting non fans. But I'm not sure what kind of responses you were expecting by creating a thread like this.
