Recommendation: avoid the Hobbit forum if you don't want spoilers! Can't Post

The time has come when those who don't want spoilers may seriously want to consider taking a holiday from the Hobbit board until after they've seen the movie.

The world premier is tomorrow, December 2, but there have already been pre-screenings of the movie. Yes, there is a press embargo on all major details and reviews (other than: "I liked it" tweets, etc.) until 12:01 a.m. PST on December 8. However, as we've seen in the past day or two, worldwide marketing is revealing quite a few details on its own.

As I mentioned a few days ago, just by hanging out on the Hobbit forum last year in the last week or two before the world-wide release of AUJ, I pretty much knew most major and minor plot points before I saw the movie. Now, I'm okay with that, but if you're not, you should seriously consider a holiday from this board. If you do hang out here in the next few weeks, please don't insist on spoiler tags as they'll pretty much be meaningless as more and more people here see the movie and want to discuss it.

For those who still want to keep up on general Hobbit news, but don't want to be completely spoiled, check out DanielLB's weekly Hobbit news update thread on Main. He marks each linked thread with a descriptive title as well as whether it contains spoilers.

We're in the home stretch, everyone! Very exciting, but dangerous here on this forum for anyone who doesn't want to be spoiled before they see the movie.

Consider yourselves duly warned! Cool
