Wired: "Why the Hobbit Trailer Creeps Me Out" Can't Post

Wired's Erik Wecks makes a compelling case for Tolkien fans to not get too excited about the Hobbit.

What's he on about? Well, he noticed something in the teaser (one that many other people did as well), but he's gone a step further and drawn some interesting parallels to one of the most controversial and bizarre changes that Walsh and Boyens made for The Return of The King. Of course, this being the internet, your mileage may vary. Naturally, there are movie spoilers.
