I noticed it didn't say "HFR 3D" [In reply to] Can't Post

Not to make a big deal of it, but just something I noticed at the end. I remember the AUJ promos listed HFR 3D as one of the options. I'm sure we'll have the same format options available for the next two films. The first trailer will probably include all options, as they want people to know that HFR wasn't a one time deal. Possibly just slipped by them here, which happens occasionally.

hfr [In reply to] Can't Post

i heard that there wont be any hfr this time becuase it was so awesome that its went way over everyones head and they couldnt handle the clarity, i guess we need to evolve some more before everyone can enjoy it.

Neither of the two official trailers listed 3D HFR as a viewing option [In reply to] Can't Post

See trailer 1 and trailer 2.

3D HFR did start to appear on the TV spots though, like this one.

I don't think it's something to worry about. They're not not going to show these films in 3D HFR after all the effort they've put in to it. And not to forget, they're not really advertising the film. Google are advertising their own product, attached to the movie. An official trailer may include all viewing options.

Thanks, DanielLB! [In reply to] Can't Post

I think I had the TV spots in mind when posting that, as they were the most recent advertisements for the film I had seen. Thanks for clearing that up!

And yes, I agree also that it's nothing to worry about.

So I'm in fully agreement with you Smile

Not the kind of stuff... [In reply to] Can't Post

... I usually get into, but good to see there seems to be quite an ad campaign on the way for DoS.



A dragon is no idle fancy. Whatever may be his origins, in fact or invention, the dragon in legend is a potent creation of mens imagination, richer in significance than his barrow is in gold. J.R.R. Tolkien

Words of wisdom that should be remembered - both by critics, purists and anyone in between.

When I saw the words "Watch a preview" I nearly had a heart attack [In reply to] Can't Post

Still cool, though. Good to finally see something! I was beginning to get bored, there are a lot of other movie franchises with a lot more going on at the moment. WB doesn't seem to be aware of their competition.

The eagle are weird looking.... [In reply to] Can't Post

Their wings are way too much separated from their bodies... I don't think it's the work of Weta's team, so I don't think the real marketing campaign has really began.

Can someone identify the third place shown? Is it a spoiler? [In reply to] Can't Post

So we get to see the Trollshaws at 0:11, Rivendell (I think) at 0:14, and... some green swamp or river at 0:16? I can't seem to place it. Is it some location in Mirkwood possibly?

odd [In reply to] Can't Post

yeah its a very odd image sort of like a underwater swamp river! or a magical river....

interestingly you can see what i presume is beorns hall on the first map! but no goblin town!

will be an odd combination of scenes to play out, trollshores,rivendell, then mirkwood! and i dont appreciate the re hash of the lotr music, thats over 10 years old!

Weta's probably not involved in this [In reply to] Can't Post

Since they're working on several different projects right now (i.e. just wrapped work on Man of Steel, continuous work on The Desolation of Smaug) why would they waste time on an online game, especially one that doesn't showcase any of their abilities or tech?

It's most likely that Warners Interactive put this together. They're based out here in LA and they do a lot of online gaming stuff that act as tie-ins for the Studio's films.
