I had to share the second trailer for the upcoming Hobbit movie. It looks pretty wonderful!


I have heard that they are breaking The Hobbit into three movies. I’m not sure how I feel about that. What do you all think?

  1. Supercharged Hobbit

    I’m excited too! However, I am slightly disappointed as it seems that the only reason they are doing the split is in an attempt to mimic the financial success that came about with Harry Potter and the Twilight Series when they both split up the last book of those respective series. Yes, I know that The Hobbit is not exactly a part of the “Trilogy”, but that just proves my point. I’m looking at just the sheer size of the individual books, as well as the content within them, and I have trouble understanding why they are spliting a tiny book like The Hobbit in three parts when they made a single movie, granted they were lengthy, from each of the three Lord of the Rings novels. ?? Therefore, the only reason I can come up with — and please argue with me and prove me wrong because I realize this all sounds rather cynical — is that it is merely a marketing ploy to milk this for all it’s worth. Another way for the greediness of Hollywood to conquer the masses!

  2. Actually, I agree with you. πŸ™‚ I think it is more a marketing thing than a content thing, which makes me worry a bit. It’s not going to stop me from going to all three of them! πŸ˜€
    I have heard that they are adding more back-story for the trilogy, some things that maybe aren’t technically in The Hobbit, but would have been happening in Middle Earth around that time. I’m actually hoping they don’t think it would be a good idea to add Tom Bombadil into The Hobbit after they took him out of Fellowship of the Ring. That could go over like a lead balloon.
