First Trailer for Hobbit III viewed more than 11m times... Can't Post

An article by the Mid Devon Gazette which I made into a post on my blog, with my own comments added:

http://labofevolution.wordpress.com/2014/08/03/first-trailer-for-the-hobbit-iii/

Reactions? Thoughts?

I see that the link I thought I had put to my blog post isn't clickable. If anyone can help with that, I'll be very grateful...

Which isn't counting those who saw it on PJ's FB page. [In reply to] Can't Post

Together with the most-watched UK, French, Spanish and German versions there come an additional 5 Million :)

In Germany, the trailer is the most or among the Top 5 most watched YT video(s) for a whole week now.

It seems the 50 Shades of Grey trailer (from a week ago) [In reply to] Can't Post

Has been viewed twice as many times.

That was the news hook [In reply to] Can't Post

Normally wouldn't have known about the 50 trailer but virtually every news outlet had a story on it and how they couldn't show the whole thing. Seriously it was tame and not offensive but that report gave the trailer the bounce it needed to lure in viewers.

While BOFTA is being driven purely by fan lust for the trailer. It didn't have national news running stories on it finally arriving.

*Cough* don't think it's a comparison [In reply to] Can't Post

that can be made, tho, really. Considering the different subject matter of the films. I like leather as much as anyone, but I've passed on the trash swill "novel" and films like that have been around for years, generally made with a much smaller budget tho. Cool

Well, too bad for them, [In reply to] Can't Post

if those people like to be 'greyified'...
But still, on the other hand it is all the more gratifying for us to be also so many feeling more attracted to a beautiful story like 'The Hobbit', that feeds the nobler potential in human nature! Heart

A lot... [In reply to] Can't Post

... of people speak like this about fantasy - including Tolkien. SO maybe we should be careful to pass judgment ;) (Not that I really want to defend Grey.)

Plus... [In reply to] Can't Post

... for the marketing of TH it was important to not get cornered into the background by THG Mockingjay. And that worked.

By the way [In reply to] Can't Post

Forgot to say I love your avatar, Lurker. It's almost as good as Avandel's, in terms of the subject matter. SmileTongue

In fact, the two avatars would go very well together.

Ah... [In reply to] Can't Post

... I didn't think it was that great to justify a thread of its own and this one was the closet to a "teaser" thread we have on page 1 ;)
