New Hobbit Trailer!

The latest full-length trailer for the upcoming Hobbit movie has just been released. And I think you’ll agree, it’s way more lavish and teaser-oriented than the last. Damn studios, always gotta dangle the carrot in front of our noses! This time around, they focus more on the action and sense of crisis, especially where Ogres are concerned. And from what I can tell, this first installment will climax during the battle in the Misty Mountains, where the company came upon a cave filled with Orcs.

This is also the first time since LOTR that Gollum is being shown, and the little game he and Bilbo played – which resulted in him taking the One Ring – is revealed. Also, be sure to let me know what you think about the apparent changes Jackson is making by including Galadriel and providing hints of what was to come in LOTR. These, for the most part and to the best of my knowledge, weren’t part of the original story. Is he just thickening the plot a little, or taking liberties he shouldn’t?

  1. Eh, it’s okay. I like the first better. There is a higher creepy factor at the end, the low lighting for much of the trailer appeals to me, and I simply love how they set my favorite Tolkien song to music. The score sounds like it will be amazing.

    1. Of course, I kept trying to say a word or two wrong and add lines, a little research and I know why. They took a few lines from several verses and made one verse and it seems to just perpetually loop. Bah Humbug.

  2. I’m kind of irritated with how they’re turning this into a trilogy. It’s a pretty quick read all things considered and seems like a slap in the face of Tolkien fans that the studios are just using this adaptation as a cash cow. I’m still hopefully that it will be good, mind you. But the more I hear, it’s making me skeptical too. Time will tell, right? 🙂

    1. Bingo. I also couldn’t see why they couldn’t turn this into a single movie, but I’m guessing it was the battle scenes. Jackson knew he could drag those out and really, really develop them. But of course, this necessitates all the filler too. Damn Directors!
