Although I'm definitely not going over to AICN.com to see what they're saying in the talkback, because I can already guess, and they'll say it with some colorful language.

I stopped visiting that place so long ago(for just those reasons), I forgot it was still around. :)

But yeah, my own personal preferences aside(hey I won't pretend I'm not perfectly happy seeing more of Aidan Turner's real face:)) - I was concerned about "general reaction", because I want the films to be good and do well. I'm so glad to see that, mostly, people seem to be getting really excited.

The first place I saw the Fili/Kili pic posted was on ONTD and the reaction was almost completely positive. Yes it was a lot of women commenting but the point is, they were getting excited about seeing the film. And Dean O'Gorman had his fair share of "Oh I've loved him since he was Young Iolaus in Hercules!". The reason was similarly positive for the previous picture releases too(though obviously with less "That dwarf could GET IT!" type comments:))

All the photos taken as a whole, by perhaps slightly less serious fans than here, seem to have had the cumulative effect of exciting people for the film. And really, this is a GOOD thing.

So basically this makes me think that whoever decided to release the photos like this is a marketing genius. :D
