Favourite shot: Thranduil softly walking amongst the fallen in the ruined city of Dale.

Racing to the Iron Hills? [In reply to] Can't Post

I thought about that too Bomby. That would explain why there are only two Gundabad Wargs instead of a whole army. Also I noticed that the Wargs do have some kind of winter coat don't they? The hair looks longer and more... fluffy ;-)

The question is: Why do those Dwarves ride somewhere in a chariot? They're obviously leaving Erebor torwards Dale. It can't be during the battle. That would be stupid also it doesn't look like there's already an army of enemys except the two Wargs. So where are they going?

- To negotiate with their besiegers? No.

- To leave the more safe Erebor and fight in a open and unprotected chariot against the giant orc army? No.

- To test their own arsenal of weapons? Perhaps.

- To bring the remaining Dwarves from Laketown to Erebor? Perhaps.

- To race torwards (and back again) Dain and the Iron Hills and inform them about the... well bad situation? Why not?


Somehow Dain must be informed about the situation at Erebor since we haven't seen any Ravens yet. Also Ravens are more linked to "Game of Thrones" in modern days although their history as messengers goes back to the old Northern Europe/Viking Mythology and their god Odin. So I think there won't be any talking ravens. But this race which would give Peter a couple of more opportunities:
--> Give us a new (even epic) action race scene (Dwarven chariot against Gundabad Wargs)
--> Gives them a chance to show how technology has evolved since the (let's say: not so well executed) Bunnysled-race in AUJ
--> Gives them a chance to introduce us to a new place in Middle-earth (Iron Hills) since otherwise there would have been no new place to visit.
--> Gives them a good opportunity to introduce Dain and the Dwarves of the Iron Hills beside their role at the battlefield


Only question remains: If they're heading towards the Iron Hills... where did they got the chariot plus the four goats?
The chariot could be from Erebors halls but the goats? Did Smaug had some kind of food chamber with living animals perhaps brought as gifts for the mighty dragon?

Yes [In reply to] Can't Post

I just went and looked and found it. But it is just after they encounter the Black Rider. So now back to the Trailer.
I find the intercutting events out of sequence to be very confusing. They do that all the time in trailers now. I gather they went after Dain after they decided to fight? And I couldn't tell who all went to fetch him.

Trailer [In reply to] Can't Post

Great first trailer!
Some observations.

When the dwarves are lifting the head of the statue, they are possibly fortifying the main entrance, building some kind of wall.


When Bard says ‘’will you have peace or war’’ he is looking up. And when Thorin answers he is looking down. Thorin is probably standing on the fortification they build.


The elven archers are aiming up and Gandalf looks concerned. I think they are aiming at Thorin and the other dwarves standing on the fortification. At least the time of the day seems to match with the Bard clip.


Dwarfs of the Iron Hills are riding some kind of goats. Maybe the rumors that they are riding war boars where wrong, or maybe they changed them later in the post-production. Or maybe it is just Dain who rides a boar.


The dwarfs on the chariot are going away from the Erebor towards the city of Dale. What are they up to?


I don’t think Bolg is in Dol Guldur, because there are snow on the ruins behind him. I too think it is the Raven Hill and he is walking towards Bilbo. Maybe Beorn will show up just in time to save Bilbo or maybe Bilbo will kill Bolg?

Three things gave me goosebumps [In reply to] Can't Post

1. Pippin's (or rather, Bilbo's, yes) song- which was one of my favourite ever moments of the entire LOTR - and here so poignant, so true..

2. Thranduil in action, so flawlessy elegant and lethal...amidst all that carnage and ruin..

3. the Dwarves filing away in golden armour...

I'm liking this idea [In reply to] Can't Post

Gives us a chance to see the Iron Hills and some tense dialogue with Dain, perhaps needing some persuading to come to Thorin's aid.

It would make sense if Balin leads the delegation. But I also hope that whoever is on the wagon gets back in time to join Thorin inside Erebor. That Kili is there suggests they do, but then he might fall off.

Hello there!Sly

Is that your favourite shot of Thorin?!

I kinda like that shot of him standing
amongst the treasure horde with that
intriguing look on his face.

Overall thoughts on the trailer.
