The new trailer for The Hobbit is glorious

Though I loved - and I mean watched repeatedly for days and on a regular basis - the first trailer for The Hobbit, I might adore the second one even more. It doesn't have a chilling song, but it does show off the lighter side of the story. The Hobbit is an adventure tale. It has scary and dark moments, but the tone isn't the same as the darker Lord of the Rings trilogy. The first trailer only showed a peek of the humorous moments, but this one has made me even more confident that I will be happy with Peter Jackson's interpretation.

That said... I'm still not the biggest fan of splitting it into three films.

Anyways.
If you haven't watched it yet:


There are so many moments to be happy about. Radagast with the hedgehogs darn near made me tear up. Bilbo running out of the Shire with his map flailing in the wind made me smile. Gollum is funny and creepy; man, I've missed Andy Serkis. Trolls. Galadriel. And mostly: hearing Gandalf explain why he asked Bilbo to join their party.

On top of all of that: Middle Earth is just beautiful. I continue to be amazed at the ability of Jackson and his crew to turn a place from our planet into an otherworldly place that should only exist in fiction.

Oh, and this phrase from Gandalf caught my ears: "Home is now behind you, and the world ahead." It's a piece of the song Pippin sings for Denethor in the Return of the King. It was penned Bilbo and appeared in the book version of Fellowship; I think it's a nice a touch.

And did you see this shot of Thorin Oakenshield?
I know that he probably shouldn't be so... pretty? But I don't care.

For added fun, you can watch five different endings at The Hobbit's official website!

  1. Thanks! Looks good. I also don't think three films makes sense.

  2. You're right. Thorin Oakenshield shouldn't be such a dazzlingly beautiful man. But, Lord, did the cast choosers pick a winner! Charming AND MANSEXY. at the same time.
