Why don't start with a boom in TABA?

Why don't start with a boom in TABA? [In reply to] Can't Post

First of all ist Smaugs death not the climax, the BofA is the climax. Smaugs death is the impact for all that happens later.

Second, wouldn't it be great to have two great and big moments in one movie? One at the beginning and one at the end of it? Not all movies have to be the same.

I asked this question in another thread before: What if Smaug dies in DOS? What will you tell your UNAWARE friends? Why should they go to the third movie? The dragon is dead, the Dwarves are in the mountain again. What's left for them? You would propably say: Well there's a huge battle, a lot of politics and Bilbo goes home. A three-hour movie about a battle, politics and a Hobbit coming home? For most of them the story will be finished with Smaugs death.


We've already enough stuff for DOS from the book:
Beorn, Mirkwood (including spider attack), Woodland Realm, Barrel escape, Lake Town, Erebor, Bilbo meets Smaug

And we've new stuff from PJ & Co:
High Fells/Nazgūl tombs, Thrain backstory, Dol Guldur, Elven subplot, Orc attack during Barrel escape, Orcs and Elves fighting in Lake Town, more stuff about Bard and the Master, perhaps even Smaugs or the Necromancers backstory and the new confrontation between Smaug and the Dwarves

There is so much going on before we meet Smaug for the first time. I don't want him to appear for only 10mins before he dies. He deserves more. So why don't start with a boom in TABA?
