Wow, what an awful spot. [In reply to] Can't Post

I could have made a better one.

But i think i saw a new shot. Right before Bilbo shouts that he's going on an adventure there's an aerial shot from far above showing Bilbo running through the Shire.

Agreed. It was horrible. [In reply to] Can't Post

Just the second trailer diced up to be even smaller.

Can't wait for a TV spot that looks like someone actually tried...

agreed [In reply to] Can't Post

although I've never looked at TV spots for their artistic integrity. Wink

It's not that great... [In reply to] Can't Post

It almost seems fake. Wouldn't be hard to make, either.

Does this mean we'll get more in some near future? [In reply to] Can't Post

Funny that they wanted to stuff the 1 minute so full of scenes they didn't even let the dialogue sound natural, yet they still had to include the annoying "That could have been worse" ending. Sly

But every word you say today
Gets twisted 'round some other way
And they'll hurt you if they think you've lied

The Hobbit - Coming straight to DVD! [In reply to] Can't Post

This is incredibly harsh, but I believe whoever was in charge of cutting that TV spot should be fired. I know one minute isn't a lot of time, but you can't just smash in as much dialogue about the quest with rapid cuts and expect it to flow smoothly. I'm sure half the people here could fire up a basic video editor and make a better TV spot with the footage we've got.

These previews just keep getting worse and worse. Bring back the pacing and feel of the first trailer!

It's probably not official [In reply to] Can't Post

Since it looks like this is only being shown in China, I imagine they chopped the trailer up for their own requirements. PJ or the studio wouldn't let this be shown as an "official" TV spot.

Given that it's China we're talking about, this is probably actually the case. Should be available on Hong Kong shelves within 48 hours of release.

Man is but an ass if he go about to expound this dream.

As a 60-second TV commercial, it did what it needed to do.

Was the "look out!" shot with the stone giants new?
