Great trailer, I gasped when I saw Smaug's head! Looks better than the last one!

Yeah, I didn't expect to actually get that clear of a look at Smaug before the movie was released. He looks great.
We still haven't seen a clear shot of Smaug, sorry, but it's just his head. We've not seen his neck, body itself with the jewels platting his underside and his wings and tail. To be honest, I'm not surprised we saw so "little" of him in the trailer.

As for the Trailer itself, it looks good, of course Jackson has changed a few things, especially the Barrels scene, but roll on the 13th December.
I thought if we saw any of him at all it might just be the eye like in the first movie, or maybe a vague shadow, so even the little bit we did see surprised me.

Here's a video of Evangeline Lilly, Orlando Bloom and Lee Pace watching a fan reaction video to the trailer:
That video is great.

I liked what they showed but it was basically a sillouette and his eye. Not much detail.

It's a dragon tease. As it should be

I was surprised to see so much of Legolas. I knew he was going to show up, but was expecting a cameo ala Galadriel and Saruman in the first movie. From the trailer, it looks as if he has his own arc.

I have a feeling this was a studio crafted trailer(No way!) It gave people a glimpse of Smaug for them to get excited.

People who loved the first 3 LOTR's movies saw Legolas. So they're interest is up.

Finally we have Evangeline Lily as the story created Tauriel a female butt kicking elf.

Any word on his far this film will chronicle? Will we get as far as Bard the Bowman's big moment?

I think at this point that the film will end with Bilbo and Smaug confronting each other. But that's pure speculation on my part.

Well, the previous film covered a meager 6 chapters, far less than I expected. Not really sure why they're pacing this thing the way they are, other than the financial gain of making it 3 films.

What other reason does Hollywood need? Can you imagine if LotR was paced the same way? NINE MOVIES?!?

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

I'm hoping by the end of all this to have found at least one installment I can fall in love with. I saw The Hobbit once and can't remember a thing about it

Not that I didn't admire all of it, I did. I am happy to live in an age that can recreate fantasy so well.

My guess is that The Desolation of Smaug will complete the Smaug arc and end with the Pyrrhic victory that is his death. The Dwarves have achieved their quest... but Laketown is burning. It would be a down note to end the movie on, but I can't think of any across-the-board good up moments between Smaug's lair and the Battle of Five Armies. If that's where the movie ends, we would probably see Bilbo start his process of breaking away from the Dwarves; he can't join their celebration, because he knows that Laketown is suffering because of them.

I saw it 5 times in the cinema. Lots of things about it annoy me as a purist, but it's nice to spend 3 hours in Middle Earth.

Not as amazing as the LOTR movies, but still a very enjoyable film.

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

Yeah I'd agree, not as amazing.. BUT I did wonder if the OMFG element of seeing middle earth recreated in LOTR was just over, because it had been done. If they had come out with The Hobbit first perhaps I would have been blown away.
