'The Hobbit' trailer anticipation thread! Can't Post

With less than 24 hours to go, I thought it would be a nice idea to have a thread to let out all our excitement, anticipation, eagerness, exhilaration (and any other synonyms you can think of!), and count down the seconds until it's released.

As I type this it is just 16 hours to go until it is revealed somewhere on the internet!

For those who it is released during the night, will you be staying up or setting an alarm?

Is anybody having a gathering of friends and/or family around the computer?

Is anyone having/planning a mini party? Popcorn and drinks? Yes it’s only 2 minutes but it’s a big deal!

Who can’t stop thinking about it that there work today is going to be greatly affected?!

Is anyone so excited that their friend/spouse/sibling/parent/other has told you to shut up?

Tell us what you will be doing at 7pm PST and let out your excitement!

I suspect that the trailer, once online, is going to be everywhere the following day, and more than likely reach top 10 searched for google/yahoo etc, and tweeting worldwide!

Let the countdown begin!!

It's supposed to be released 4:00 am [In reply to] Can't Post

over here - so I'm debating with myself as to whether I should stay up, or wake up early and set the clock or just get a long night's sleep and watch it calmly when I wake up, hopefully in the best available HD quality on whatever site it is available on.



The greatest adventure is what lies ahead.

Wondering about the same. [In reply to] Can't Post

I have to get up at 06:30 AM anyways, so I might just go to bed very early and set my alarm to 03:55, watch the trailer and try to go back to sleep (which will probably be very hard) Smile

Alarm clock [In reply to] Can't Post

Well, I'm Spanish, so the trailer will premiere here at 03:00 AM. The next day I have class in college, so I think I'm going to put the alarm clock to wake up, watch it, talk a little about it with you guys and go back to sleep (if I can).

what about resolution [In reply to] Can't Post

im wondering if the films shot in 5k will they also release a Ultra-high-definition trailer something along the lines of 4k. That would be truly EPIC!

Will definatley get no sleep before it is dropped upon me at 4am.

The videoblog is never late. Nor is it early.
It arrives precisely when it means to.

As it will be 7 am here [In reply to] Can't Post

I had to set my alarm...
usually I get up at 8 so, that's a not big dealSmile

Far over the misty mountains cold

To dungeons deep and caverns old

We must away ere break of day

To seek the pale enchanted gold.

I have a 50" 3D TV with surround sound... [In reply to] Can't Post

It has the ability to convert 2D images into very basic looking 3D. Might hook my laptop up to that if I'm not too tired by 3am. **smug** Cool

I don't understand why it's not in 48 fps... [In reply to] Can't Post

Quint said it will be in 24fps because of the lack of 48fps projectors... but a PC monitor or TV can output 48 or 60 fps fine, most the games I play are at 60fps... Crazy

It will be released arouns 5 am if my math skills works... [In reply to] Can't Post

(I hate timezones...)
So I will sleep and wake up with the good feeling that all the hardcore fans (not that I'm not hardcore) have been fighting to get the trailer, and then uploaded it and spread it around the internet :)
So I won't stay up or wake up in the middle of the night for this :P
I can wait because I'm not conscious while sleeping anyway, so it won't feel longer anyway ;)

The reason I want to see it early... [In reply to] Can't Post

Is so that I can be part of the discussion afterwards, instead of reading a million posts from the night before Wink

I want to be part of all the excitement and everything as soon as it is released. [In reply to] Can't Post

I used to frequent another forum when Return of the King trailer was released - and I got a real buzz about being part of it at the time.

Like you said I don't want to trawl through hundreds of posts, or make posts about seeing something in the trailer (like: OMG!!!111 did you see Gollum's foot, as that would be me), which someone had already pointed out a million posts ago and and had already been discussed Blush lol!

This is a really bad day for doing work...

I really really wanted [In reply to] Can't Post

to wait until I go see Tin Tin tomorrow night in theaters, to get my first experience with the trailer.
But I don't think I can wait,
plus I work at a TV network called Reelz, that's all about movies, so it is going to be PLASTERED everywhere tomorrow in my office....and all of the people that always make fun of me for my 'obsession' with all things Tolkien will be pestering me all day, asking if I've seen the new trailer.
But thankfully I'm only an hour different that pst so i won't have to get up in the middle of the night.

Can't wait! [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm just going to be watching it by myself ... I'm SO EXCITED! I wasn't even this excited when I saw the first promo images! It's at 4pm tomorrow, here in NZ, so at least I don't have to set an alarm!

I've just been re-watching Sherlock and I noticed that Martin Freeman sometimes does this little sniff..... just like Ian Holmes does as Bilbo in LotR <3 he's going to be perfect!

Nah. It'll be 5 in the morning here, so I'll be surfing on the net, probably watching videos in YouTube to kill the time. And nomming good food. I just remembered I have forgotten a 1,5 liters Coca-Cola bottle on the balcony for a month... thankfully there has been mostly sub-zero temperatures, so it should still be okay. Laugh

More traffic [In reply to] Can't Post

It would be interesting to find out whether there has been an increase in traffic into TORn and the forum over the last couple of days. Would also be interesting to find out what the maximum people visiting here at 7pm PST is. Is there anyway of finding this out? I know if you click on "Who's Online" you can get basic information, but out of pure interest a time-series of visitor count would be interesting!
