Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows is a Warner Bros. release, so that would make sense to me. I guess The Adventures of Tintin might be possible, too, because of Peter Jackson's connection to that, but IIRC it's not a WB production.

They're shooting it in 3D. Lame.

In the same theatres, which most likely means the employees will mess up the lense settings for the 2d showings. Or the 2d showings will be in the little shoe box sized theatres.

Seems like there is always something to complain about.

And Elijah Wood came painfully close to a Doctor Who reference.

Elijah Wood believes 'The Hobbit' trailer will debut in front of 'Tintin.'

No surprise there, really. I expected either Tintin, given PJ's producer role, or Sherlock Holmes, since it's a Warner Bros. production. I'm looking forward to it.

In my post immediately before yours, I just told you when the trailer would come out and where you can find it.

No, The Legend of Sigurd and Gudrún is not set in Tolkien's Middle-earth. It's a narrative poem he composed based on the legendary Sigurd from Norse mythology.

Awesome. Yet another reason why I can't wait for Tintin. Between The Hobbit trailer, Tintin, Sherlock Holmes 2, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, and Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy, December is going to be a sweet, sweet month.

Knowing my theatre, they'll only offer it in 3D. That's what they always do with blockbusters.

Re: THE HOBBIT (2012/2013): News, Rumors, Pics Till Release

You can, but only if you're interested in how Tolkien developed his world. The Book of Lost Tales (both of them) contain some of the earliest versions of the stories that eventually were published by Tolkien's son in The Silmarillion. They're the first two books of a twelve-book series, The History of Middle-earth, that detail the development of Middle-earth from Tolkien's earliest ideas around World War I up to assorted writings from the last years of his life.

They're more like a non-fictional biography of Middle-earth than they are actual novels or anything like that.
