the two film split Can't Post

probably obvious and already guessed but When the trilogy was orginally a duology, An Unexpected dJourney actually ended at Barrels out of bond, but as we know it's been changed so now we have a whole year to see how the story ends or we could just pick up the book lol anyway watching the trailers for Dsolation Of Smaug you can see the actual ending for AUJ in there this is how I think it went

Exciting barrel chase through the river with orcs and elves attacking one another and the dwarves, leading to some big fight where the elves get distracted by the orcs and lose track of the dwarves.

after the orcs are defeated Legolas and Tauriel try to keep up the chase for the dwarves and come to the big rock that we see in the trailers and watch the dwarves float on towards Distant Lake-Town, they have the conversation we hear in the trailers "It's not our fight" "are we not part of this world? it is our fight"

wide shot of Legolas/Tauriel watching the barrels float down the river with Lake-Town in the distance then a close up of unconsious Bilbo on a barrel he wakes up and catches first sight of the Lonely Mountain and is awestruck. Camera pans up towards the mountain over the desolation of Smaug and into Erebor where the thrush cracks the snail on the rocks the sound echoes into the chamber and Smaug's eye springs open then cut to black just like we saw in AUJ


that is how it would have ended had the films stayed as two, so now that the ending of the first film has been moved to the middle of the second film perhaps the action shots in this scene will be cut down as it is now longer a climactic battle? any thoughts
