What did the "not we" think of the new trailer? Can't Post

I dare to make a new thread, and cross my fingers it doesn't turn in to chaos. Wink * Feel free to delete this thread dear admins if you feel it could be merged with another. I thought it would be nice to share general audience views and opinions, rather than argue about our own. Tongue

We've had a thread dedicated to our own reviews and reactions, but what did the "not we" think of the new trailer? Since we (fans) make up a minority of the audience, it is the general audience and the "not we" that will rake in all the money for the film.

By the "not we" I mean the non-fans and the average movie-goer: friends, family and acquaintances; children, parents, colleagues, neighbours and partners. Did you show them the trailer, or did they find it themselves? And most importantly, what did they think?

I just showed my partner, after having enough of hearing it but not seeing it (I've been hogging the laptop!). She has watched all the films, and read The Hobbit, and enjoys them all. She's never found them (books and films) as thrilling as I would like. I thought she would have the same concerns as some on here (too much CGI, a lot of battles, little to do with the book etc). But she loved it - she was impressed with Smaug, shocked to see Legolas, loved Tauriel (!), and overall say it was a great trailer. So there you have it. What do your friends and family say?
