The Hidden Door? Can't Post

My sister and I were discussing the next Hobbit film and we are under the impression that this picture here is the door into the mountain. We believe this because, looking at the background of this picture here (to the right, in-between Bifur and Ori), there appears to be an opening that is of the same shape and size.

However, in the book, on Thorin's map, the runes say:

Quote
"Five feet high the door and three may walk abreast"

Clearly, if this is the Hidden Door, this is smaller.

I, personally, was hoping for a door that was reminiscent of when the Fellowship entered Moria in the Lord of the Rings.


What are your thoughts on this?

What's this? A Ranger caught off his guard?
