How TABA trailers can get better than DOS trailers - speculation Can't Post

Loved both of AUJ's trailers. Wasn't too happy w. DOS trailer #1 - tho I figured it was more of an early teaser.

But loved, loved DOS trailer #2 (being a Thorin/dwarf/Bilbo fan for one thing I was so *bleep* HAPPY to see my guys again) and thought the music was great. Never fainted in my life but the sneak peek was completely unexpected and so I came close to it the night of the fan event - the ominous eerie bell chimes, the prophecy, the music - all of it gave so much weight to the gathering events.

I'm guessing visually re TABA there will be some scenes they can show because there's always exciting stuff if there's going to be fighting, and they don't have to hide Smaug any more. Maybe throw in a shot of Thorin in full-blown dragon sickness since (whether it's correct or not) the theme of someone sitting on mountains of gold is something people can relate to. Thranduil going to war would be good, as he's visually spectacular.

Not sure how they are going to get across that this is not a re-hash of LOTR, because in theory all of ME is NOT at stake yet. Or how to get across Bilbo's significance without it looking like a children's film of sorts - or how this will at tie together when you are talking about a few minutes of footage.

And IMO they need to get the music right - that's critical. And not show too much either - personally I hope they keep the Iron Hills dwarves under wraps until the movie (tho bet images get leaked).
