Rough youtube clips of tv spots 9 and 10 are out. Including SMAUG.

Eagles, Glamdring glowing (seriously I love that).

Also I don't think anyone has talked about the scene that was released. Search youtube with THe Hobbit Sneak Peak which has Gandalf giving Bilbo a very Fellowship of the Ring Frodo Gandalf minute (it brought chills down my spine).

Lots more of goblins (or Orcs), THe Great Goblin, and what appears to be the new torture machines shown in the last Video Blog.

Lots and lots of tiny new additions.

And I am freaking out that we are still two full weeks away (though 2 weeks and 2 hours and ten minutes brings hopefully a great return to middle earth).

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

I've been re-reading the book and I've been thinking about where the movie breaks will be. Before reading it, I pretty much came to the assumption that the the original split was going to be after the Bilbo and the dwarves escaped the wood elves. As I'm reading through the Mirkwood chapters, I'm thinking that the first movie of the trilogy will end just prior to them entering Mirkwood (although I'm not sure how that gels with Gandalf's side adventures).

On another note, the whole time I've been reading, I've been trying to imagine Martin Freeman as Bilbo, and much to my surprise, I'm struggling. Not because I don't think he'll be good as Bilbo (on the contrary, I think he's going to be wonderful), but because Orson Bean's animated version keeps popping up in my head. This is probably because the 1977 animated film was a large part of my childhood, and after all of these years, despite it's corniness (at times), I still love it.

But here's hoping Martin Freeman replaces that voice next month.

He's been Arthur Dent, John Watson and Bilbo Baggins. What English icon should he play next?

Now that's a funny way to write "Eamonn Walker".

Well, we English don't get in line, we queue - although Gallifreyans can probably contrive always to be first in any queue. Given the trend, the next Doctor will probably be an embryo.

That aside, I have to say that I'm really getting psyched for The Hobbit. The spots look great, and the reviews I read yesterday are very encouraging. Even though I'm not planning on seeing it until after Christmas, I'm still excited now that the release date is down to two weeks and counting.
