That is absolutely amazing news. It is both very generous of Peter Jackson and speaks a lot for his character to do such a thing.

That latest blog is fantastic...but when is the teaser coming out? It's 2012 right? So on LOTR they had a very early trailer for FOTR, but for TTT and ROTK they had not so many. I hope with one of the December-releases but it could also be in Blockbuster-season starting in May and a full trailer in September/Oktober.

If I was a marketeer, I would hold. This movie is gonna sell itself, the name and fame of the LOTR-movies is that big. Wait until May for a teaser, and a full trailer in Oktober/November and when that trailer airs start a big push. But I would love to see a teaser earlier of course...
I was hoping for a teaser trailer THIS Christmas.

Good trailer though I wasn't a fan of the singing in the middle of the trailer. I know there's some singing in the book and such but it just felt weird within the context of the trailer

I know this film will definitely deliver (if theres one thing that Peter Jackson knows, its Middle Earth) but the trailer was pretty underwhelming imo.

It reminded me of when Aarogorn sang in Return of the King. They kind of had a similar sounding voice. And I thought Viggo sang surprisingly well too.

My thoughts exactly! Similar voice, at least in the part they showed

Pumped! I liked how the trailer was a slow burn. Jackson didn't want to give away any of the goods, keep us in suspense.

Gonna have to read the book again before the release.

It's been years since I've read the book but a lot came back to me during this trailer. I have total faith in Mr. Jackson. This film will no doubt be epic and it's certainly at the very top of my must-see list.

That trailer gave me serious chills.

I'm a huge fan of LOTR but that trailer was underwhelming. The best thing about it is that Martin Freeman is proving to be the perfect casting choice. But the way Gollum came in the end and saying precious for no reason, it was blatant manipulation for people to get excited. When the marketing becomes so obvious, my interest crumbles. The singing was a nice touch though and I'm excited to see Gandalf again.

But honestly though, that trailer has nothing on TDKR.

These films are not really comparable, therefore I see no contest between the trailers from The Hobbit and TDKR. Looking forward to both movies though.
2012 will be a good Movie-year.

Apart from being the two biggest blockbusters of next year, I agree completely. Totally different with each their own huge fanbase.

If 2012 is better than 2011 we're in for a treat.

I still get that anti climactic feel with the Hobbit but no matter, the trailer exceeded expectations.

Jackson and company have done it again in bold, convincing fashion, it's like 2001 all over again.

Watching the trailer i felt as if no time has passed at all since Rotk was released, this should be the highlight of 2012.

You can see all the labor that was put into this effort up there on the screen, i'm positively in awe again with what has been done.

The theme song is brilliant also, instant classic

I cracked up during the part where the one dwarf fell. It certainly has that Jackson charm that i remember from the LOTR series and considering this is split in two films, Jackson will definitely get a good hold of the plot.

I'll be there opening day.

I thought the trailer was just so so. It was great to see Gandalf again and also some of the action looked great (for a split second or two). The singing, I am sure it will fit into the movie, just seemed odd and misplaced in the trailer and more distracting than entertaining. The scenery shots just looked breath taking. I could sit through 2 hours of just scenery shots if Peter Jackson directed them I bet. Oh well, it was a good start to what is going to be a great film. Hopefully I can find a baby sitter on opening night. I got to see the midnight showings for 2/3 of the original trilogy and would like to make it to this one too.

IMO the trailer was perfect and the singing in the middle made the hairs on my neck stand up. The reverence the other dwarves had at the singing of the story of the "Desolation of Smaug" a great touch.

It looks great.

I agree 100% I am totally all in. Was the trailer for one movie or two? And I thought I heard there were to be three movies?

Just to be able to see more Rings films in theaters from Peter Jackson is such an amazing thought....I was 15 when Fellowship came out, its easily the Star Wars of my generation....watching the extended cuts just sucks you into that world like no other films before or since...IMO. One. More. Year. Ughhh

I'm sorry, but I wasn't impressed at all. I read The Hobbit as a kid and it bored me to death in comparison to LOTR. Plus, I don't understand why they need to make two movies when the book is shorter than all three LOTR books.

Production video blog nr 5 is online, mainly concerning the logistics of filming outdoors in New Zealand.
Some nice footage of characters and locations.

I have watched the trailer about 10 times now and it still looks great, singing is still out of place in the trailer, but it is a great trailer and is getting me pumped up for sure.

Over the past week I have been watching the extended editions and then watching the special features after each film (I hadn't seen the special features before). Not only do I love these films more than I ever did, but seeing the process really made me confident that these upcoming two films will be great. They really spent a lot of time planning and refining and really pushed each other to make a great film. I don't think something like The Lovely Bones had that kind of preparation and unity amongst the cast and crew.

Oh, and that bit in the Return of the King special features where it is Wood's last scene and he's nailing every take, but Jackson keeps making him do takes because he doesn't want it to end would be enough for even the biggest of LOTR haters to get a bit misty eyed.

As for the trailer, I'm just glad we got some footage. It was a good tease.

I am embarassed to admit that I had completely forgotten about the teaser until now (the holiday has been extremely stressful), but now that I've seen it, I CANNOT wait. It looks every bit as good as I thought it would, though I was surprised they kept that dwarven song (though it was well done). For me, this is particularly special as it was the LOTR trilogy that got me interested in films in general. I agree with Bourne's point about PJ taking his time with this and the LOTR films, as it really shows.

Man, 2012 is going to be loaded when it comes to films. Between blockbusters like this and TDKR, as well as award-caliber films like Lincoln (to name just a handful of awesome-looking films), it looks like 2012 will have something for everyone. If the world does end, at least we will go out in style film-wise.
