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.
From my understanding, the first movie was not altered significantly by the decision to make it three movies. It was during the editing of the second movie where Peter Jackson realized that the Dol Guldor scenes might have to be cut that he decided to instead make three movies. So, if there's padding, it'll be here. So I'm pretty sure the plan was to cut the first movie where they cut it for quite awhile.

What other reason does Hollywood need? Can you imagine if LotR was paced the same way? NINE MOVIES?!?
Nine movies... to counter the Nine Riders of Mordor.

I think this task was appointed for you, Hollywood.

Well, we'll see: The Lord of the Rings will be adapted again, probably in our lifetime.

I'm a hardcore Tolkien obsessive and my favourite adaptation of his work is the heavy metal concept album Nightfall in Middle Earth by the band Blind Guardian. It's an based on The Silmarillion and is just amazing. That Feanor sure can rock.

I've read the books so many times that it feels like I've lived several lifetimes in Middle Earth. Visiting the filming locations would undoubtedly be a disappointment.

A number of sites ran it today as a new featurette, but it looks like it dates back to March. I hadn't seen it before, so I didn't catch the error.

I watched that earlier today. It was fun, and the training segment was funny. I always love the screen screen horses, people look so ridiculous on them. Then again, I guess most green screen stuff looks ridiculous before the effects are added.
