The One Ring Forums: Tolkien Topics: Movie Discussion: The Hobbit: Scene from the Trailer could support this view.: Edit Log

Scene from the Trailer could support this view.

Looking at this still from the second trailer (alternative ending) you can almost hear Thorin saying to a chuckling Balin: "See, I told this would be necessary when dealing with a Hobbit!" while handing Bilbo the contract with blatant nonchalance.[/img]

This is of course no proof at all how the scene will actually be played out, but maybe a bit of speculative fuel to this very interesting discussion.

In Reply To
I will find it perfectly acceptable. If after singing the song, and after Bilbo asks for more details, Thorin says something like:

"Here's the contract. Maybe you'll understand that better, hobbit."

I will embrace it.

But if the contract is played as a peculiarly dwarven characteristic, or as an extension of Thorin's windbaggery, I will find it hard to stomach, and certainly a misinterpretation of the book.
