Oh God... [In reply to] Can't Post

I liked the article as it kind of summed up me feeling that the biggest surprise I found was Richard Armitage and Thorin. I knew Martin Freeman would nail it and was sure Ian McKellen would bring back the same magic, dignity, gravitas and mischief he had given to the character before.

Yap... I think TABA will be unbearable (in a positive way) tension and drama-wise because of Thorin.

For those of us knowing the story because we are so afraid of the moment we already know will come in which we will lose this character (after he already takes a turn for the worse).

And for those not really knowing the story, I think they will be shocked that he is actually killed off. In LotR characters of that magnitude (besides Boromir, although he was kind of a red shirt) did not die. They simply didn't. You somehow knew they would make it. Especially as many compare Thorin and Aragorn, many migh expect him to be the happy king under the mountain by the end of the trilogy.

So, yes... I think TABA and Thorin's death could do movie history.
