Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release
It trades a bit TOO much on LOTR nostalgia for my taste instead of giving us glimpses of exciting things to come. I was hoping for some money shots.
It's practically a given that we get a shot like this
It's become synonymous with Peter Jackson and LOTR's
I thought so a bit too, but then I realized: this is just a teaser trailer. All they've really got to go on are "hey its Ian McKellan in full Gandalf makeup" and "hey its the New Zealand countryside"......but the "Dark Knight Rises" teaser trailer was just character voices and such.
Its JUST a teaser trailer. Not even the full trailer.
So I'm confident that the upcoming "full trailer" will set it apart more and not just be nostalgia.
But I was excited just to see the Dwarves in full costume.
