Just for fun...the studio logos we'll probably see opening TH trilogy: Can't Post

The New Line Logo was pretty iconic to the opening of the LotR films, especially as the dark, minimalist studio logo jived with the fairly dark opening of all three films. However, TH is obviously a different beast in many ways - one being that rather than New Line being the major studio force behind the films, it's now been fully absorbed into the Warner Bros. umbrella (NL was owned by Warners back when LotR was made but was operated as its own distinct company) while as partial holders of the rights to the book, MGM has become involved as well. As a result, TH is a New Line-MGM co-production, and is being distributed by Warner Bros.

It seems likely then that these these three logos will open the TH films. First, is the joint Warner/New Logo, (this was taken from 2011 release) - it pretty effectively transitions from the bright sky of the WB opening to the black background in the New Line version:

And then, we have the new MGM logo circa 2012 - taken from a release this past August - a bit more flashy than the traditional "lion begin studio standard":

If HS's music starts over the studio logos, as was the case with LotR, I wonder if there will be brief pauses/rests built in to allow for the MGM lion's roaring, or if the lion will be silent in favor of the score?

Anyhoo, simply watch both videos in succession if you can't wait until Dec. to see the first 30 seconds or so of TH! Tongue

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!!!!!
