Hobbit trailer to show in US theatres with Brave. But which trailer? Can't Post

Our spies have sent us simultaneously exciting and puzzling information about the forthcoming Hobbit trailer:

"Deluxe Digital has sent our theater the new US trailers for this upcoming week, and I was delightfully surprised after I read through the list. We have received the SECOND Hobbit trailer, although the 48fps or any other format is still unknown to me. It instructed us, along with several other theaters, to attach the trailer to Brave, which premieres this Friday.

Unfortunately, our district manager has opted [for] us to attach three different trailers, none of which are The Hobbit."

Our anonymous tip-off, who lives and works in the American mid-west, also sent us copies of the instruction sheets. On it, we discovered that the listed length exceeds the 2:24mins of the G-rated clip cited by the Alberta film board by five seconds.

Our spy tells us that: "the original Hobbit trailer that we already had ... had a run time of 2:31 on the main server. So it's confusing as to why we would get another shipment of the first Hobbit trailer, if we ALREADY have it."

"The only other explanation that I have is the possible 5 second black transition we normally use to space out the trailers, but I don't think that would be accounted for in the trailer itself."

What's going on here? We're now beginning to wonder whether this "new" trailer for US theatres, only a few seconds shorter than the one we've already seen, will actually feature much that's new at all.

Hmmmm... [In reply to] Can't Post

Coming more and more onto the side that it's just a rehash of the first trailer for a G rating. Surely if it was new footage there would be a lot more build up for it in the mainstream media or by PJ and co

It exceeds it by nearly 6 seconds, actually... [In reply to] Can't Post

As I mentioned on the other thread they don't include the 6 seconds of green writing at the start... it's going to be the same as the last trailer with a couple of alternate shots where characters were smoking or fighting before to keep it a G rating...

Yes, didn't the source on IMDB say there are only a couple of new shots...? [In reply to] Can't Post

Seems increasingly like that's the case. In the immortal works of Otto West: "Okay...okay...DISAPPOINTED!!" TongueTongue





UnsureUnsure

My Top 5 Wish List for "The Hobbit"
5. Legolas will surf down Smaug's neck
4. Bilbo will be revealed to a Robot
3. Naked PJ cameo as Ghan-Buri-Ghan
2. Use of not only 3D, but smell-o-vision, plus the inclusion of axes coming out of the seats and poking the audience when appropriate
1. Not only keep the claim that Thorin & Co. ran amok in Mirkwood "molesting people", but depict said incident in vivid detail!!!!!

Absolutely! They could tease him in this trailer and fully reveal him at Comic-con [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd like to see Brave because I do like Pixar's creative attitude and it looks to have some heart to it, but opening nights are largely too much of a hassle.

I think Comic-con marks the start of The Hobbit's real marketing... [In reply to] Can't Post

Everything so far has just been early buzz IMO, and I consider the teaser more of an announcement concept than a real trailer. Filming wraps in July and I'm sure shortly after we'll have a real Hobbit trailer and a flurry of info. Until then I'm waiting patiently and playing War in the North Smile

Do we KNOW that it is identical or almost identical? [In reply to] Can't Post

Or is this still speculation. That is still not clear to me.

We are more connected than ever before, more able to spread our ideas and beliefs, our anger and fears. As we exercise the right to advocate our views, and as we animate our supporters, we must all assume responsibility for our words and actions before they enter a vast echo chamber and reach those both serious and delirious, connected and unhinged.

Same here [In reply to] Can't Post

We're already planning to take the grandchildren to see Brave on Saturday, so a Hobbit trailer of any description would be a real treat.

Do we walk in legends or on the green earth in the daylight?

A man may do both. For not we but those who come after will make the legends of our time. The green earth, say you? That is a mighty matter of legend, though you tread it under the light of day!
