Legolas [In reply to] Can't Post

Does anyone else thing that he looks great? I mean, he doesn't seem to have the digital make-up like in DOS. He looks much better, IMO.

Epic. That is really all I can say. [In reply to] Can't Post

You gotta' love the use of Pippin's song throughout. Now I'm really hoping that they use Billy Boyd for the end credits.

Exactly! [In reply to] Can't Post

Since the dwarves are a mountain people and since the goats are probably both a work animal, mohair and food source it does not seem farfetched though they would have to be large rams...a bigger breed than those of today.

Musk Ox would have been cool too!

looks like it... [In reply to] Can't Post

Seems like they've used that old trailer trick of intercutting that with a scene of Bilbo in a similar environment, but which I'd guess is actually outside Erebor. Pretty sure Bilbo won't be up against Bolg!

How 'bout that Thranduil? [In reply to] Can't Post

Of course my first thought was about Thorin and his "WAR" crown, BUT the look on Thranduil's face when he walked through the carnage, and then later LOOK OUT, here comes the Elf Ninja Blender action!!! I'd say he's had a change of heart moment. Well gotta go, I've got work to do here in the office and more trailer to watchWink

Galadriel [In reply to] Can't Post

Where was that scene with Galadriel and Gandalf lying on the ground and holdings hands? It wasn´t in the trailer, was it? I find it strange with Galadriel, one could think she is not really there, like in the last hobbit movie, where she talked to Gandalf or the entire council scene from the first movie or in one LOTR movie (don´t know he part) where she helped Frodo getting up. And barefoot, she really must have good elven callusLaugh

Yes, that was my immediate thought [In reply to] Can't Post

The shot is eerily similar to the shot of Dumbledore's corpse in HBP.
I seriously doubt they would see much benefit in playing the "dead-but-not-dead" card, since even casual fans are most likely aware of Gandalf's general attitude to death, lol. I think it's merely a way of making the battle seem that bit more dangerous-when such a powerful character is on the brink like that it can certainly help to heighten the tension (something which I welcome after some of the ridiculous falls that the Dwarves have survived). I have to admit that though I was (and am) a little worried about how that moment is going to be handled, the trailer has reassured me somewhat-it comes across as both dramatic and incredibly touching.
Frankly, a fantastic trailer, albeit short-but to some degree less is more, since what is on display is 100% superb!

You are right! [In reply to] Can't Post

Yes, Bilbo's song, that Pippin overheard and sang it in the great halls of Denethor at an hour of despair.

It could be Thorin's tomb, can't make it out properly. But I did notice it has the same ray of light as Balin's tomb.

My very same thoughts. We know that Gandalf is not dead or will die, and they are just making all more emotional, epic and deep.

Re [In reply to] Can't Post

Ravenhill is a watchtower on the southernmost (?) point of the south arm of the Lonely Mountain. It overlooks Dale, probably a bit of the surrounding area, and is where the Dwarves go when the left the mountain to find out any news they could (because they don't know what happens after Smaug leaves).

Also, Ravenhill is where friendly ravens, who can speak with dwarves and travel with news, roost.

So, won´t Gandalf be in action at Dol Guldur ? [In reply to] Can't Post

 
I first thought that after seeing the banner from comic con and now, after seeing the trailer, the feeling is growing.
To me, in the trailer it looks like the Assault is almost done and quiet. Galadriels walks so slowly and calmed, not like there is a battle going on... so Galadriel finds him right after it maybe ?

Same impression anyone ?

P.S: Sorry for making a new thread of that ;)

I definitely looked like that, but it could be more like a freezing moment in time?

"Will you follow me... one last time".... YES! Oh yes [In reply to] Can't Post

Haven't yet fathomed all the details, but this really looks stunning. Worth every second of the wait - and I'm jumping for joy that my connection speed came back up!

First impressions - Smaug overflying burning Laketown - Legolas and Tauriel on the Lake shore looking at the ruins. Thranduil in Dale - his expression of horror - Gandalf and Galadriel - shot of the dwarves in armour - Bard and Thorin - every scene composed like an illustration.

Bilbo's voice-over at the beginning... and using Pippin's song is an inspiration.

Colour me happy - and in awe of the achievement of this film already.

Cool

Kilis face when Thorin says 'I will have war' [In reply to] Can't Post

It looks like he's about to tear up, as though he realises Thorin has completley lost it. This is gonna be emotional...

But I'm actually more in awe of the actual burning in the distance. It find it to be a very moving shot.
