New trailer game Can't Post

The last one was quite fun, let‘s do one for the October trailer.
The rules: write a list of 6 characters of which you think theyll occur most, in ascending order, numbered from 1 to 6. For example, if you think Tauriel will be the least occuring character, you put her under number 1. If you think Thrain is the one who will occur the most, you put him under 6.

The sum is calculated by the formula: 1 x (shots with char with number 1) + 2 x (shots with char with no. 2) + ... + 6 x (shots with char with number 6)


My list:
1. Bilbo
2. Thorin
3. Legolas
4. Tauriel
5. Bard
6. Gandalf

Here is my list [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm pretty sure that your list will be the typical choice and obviously one (if not the) best one and the one I would have taken... but I don't want to copy yours

I could image that this trailer is more Laketown (and Bard) based while the last one showed us very much of the Woodland Realm of Thranduil, still I believe that Orlando Bloom will be featured prominentaly. Also I've faith that Bilbo will show up more in this trailer than in the last one.


My list:
1) Azog
2) Thorin
3) Gandalf
4) Legolas
5) Bilbo
6) Bard

I don't really care about numbers 5 and 6, as long as they are characters who feature in the book.

" Why, O people of Noldor! Fëanor cried. Why should we longer serve the jealous Valar, who cannot keep us nor even their own realm secure from their enemy? And though he be now their foe, are not they and he of one kin? Vengence calls me hence, but even were it otherwise I would not dwell longer in the same land with the kin of my father's slayer and of the thief of treasure. Yet i am not the only valiant in this valiant people. And have ye not all lost your King? And what else have ye not lost, cooped here in a narrow land between the mountains and the sea? Here once was light, that the Valar begrudged to middle-earth, but now dark levels all. Shall we mourn here deedless forever, a shadow-folk, mist-haunting, dropping vain tears in the thankless sea? Or shall we return to our home? In cuiviènen sweet ran the waters under uncloaded stars, and wide lands lay about, where a free people might walk. There they lie still and await us who in out folly forsook them. Come away! Let the cowards keep this city!"

Is everyone playing this game the same way? [In reply to] Can't Post

It's meant to be least featured at 1 and most featured at 6, isn't it?

My turn... [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Radagast/Gandalf (cheating, I know!)
2.Tauriel
3. Legolas
4. Bard
5 .Bilbo
6. Thorin

There are several characters I reckon we will see only once - for example, although Tauriel won't be featured so heavily this time, I can't believe she won't be in the trailer at all. Likewise Legolas won't be missed completely either. But Thranduil could be the biggest casualty as he was so prominent in the previous trailer.

That sounds like a perfect trailer to me, here's my list. [In reply to] Can't Post

I'd like to wait and see Smaug in the theaters, but revealing him in his full epicness will really draw people to the theaters and I doubt the trailer makers will pass that up. Thorin and Bilbo being next sounds great too, but I have a feeling their wanting to introduce the new plot threads, as well as establishing the fact that Gandalf's story will be featured heavily in this one.
0.5. Gollum! Mark my words we'll see a glimpse of Gollum walking through the burnt pine trees and peering over his shoulder at roughly the 1:00 mark in the trailer. Laugh I'd be so happy if this random idea turned out to be true!
1. Tauriel/Legolas (sorry if that's cheating, but their featured together a lot and I think each of them will be featured a lot less then the others but the same amount of time as each other)
2. Bilbo
3. Thorin
4. Gandalf
5. Bard and family
6. Smaug

Also, there will be an unexpected character in the trailer...he is very sneaky. (and he seems to be creeping around in my list) Laugh

How well did you do? [In reply to] Can't Post

Here's my approximate count for the major characters. I didn't include wide shots, nor visibly similar scenes (i.e. Gandalf and Bilbo's "courage" scene counted as one appearance each).

Bilbo - 16
Thorin - 8
Dwalin - 5
Thranduil - 3
Bombur - 1
Bifur - 2
Tauriel - 5
Azog - 1
Legolas - 7
Bard - 3
Gandalf - 4
Sauron - 1
Beorn - 1
Kili - 1
Balin - 1
Smaug - 5

I scored 167.
