    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.

    One of my favorite books, and one I´ve been expecting for a wild to be turned into a movie. So yeah the excitement for this in gonna be huge.

    Does anyone remember the time when Peter Jackson was supposedly not gonna direct it and BRET RATTNER was mentioned to be up for the job? [​IMG]

    Smaug will be in the second half of the movie and they BETTER do a great good on him.

    Smaug will appear in "there and back again". I´m sure jackson and his team are gonna come up with a great smaug. The one I imagined while reading was pretty badass. I would expect nothing less from him.

    Surprised it's in two parts. Always thought of The Hobbit as a pretty quick read, especially compared to any of the LOTR books.

    Eagerly anticipating Jackson's 24-part take on The Silmarillion.

    I'm really hoping that they can fit this in somewhere even if it's during the credits. Maybe they can put the video in after the credits end.

    Lawl....catchy tune! Though a version sung by Will Shatner would probably be better. That blonde and brunette are pretty bangable!

    Posting here because I've heard about this film for a few years now and was very interested in seeing the trailer/teaser. I finally see it and I'm underwhelmed hence my post.

    Hmmm... I'm in the small camp that thinks he did not near do the Books justice.
    The Hobbit is much shorter and simpler and so should be easier to do a complete job and they are doing two films so that is hopeful.
    It looks like the dwarves are going to be comic relief though and I hated that about the films. I hope to God that was not a love interest we saw there for Gandalf.
    Sets and actors look the part, that is one thing the LOTR films nailed. I would expect the dragon to be awesome. Lots of actions, lots of cool characters, less to fuck up, I guess I want to be hopeful.
    We'll see.
