Why on Earth has Warner Brothers disabled all the links to that wonderful clip of Sir Ian and Martin Freeman? Can't Post

It was a sneak peek, and it already aired nationally, so why they should take any more issue with people repeat viewing that excellent piece of footage any more than they do with people viewing the trailers and production videos. They can behave in a very bizarre manner.

"Hear me, hounds of Sauron, Gandalf is here! Fly if you value your foul skins, I will shrivel you from tail to snout if you step within this circle!"

"Do not be to eager to deal out death in judgement. Even the very wise cannot see all ends."

They're protecting their intellectual property of course. [In reply to] Can't Post

And everyone knows that watching a 40 second clip on youtube will stop people from going out and paying to see the rest.Tongue

If you're talking about [In reply to] Can't Post

The footage with Gandalf giving Sting to Bilbo, it's still available. (For example, there: http://www.tolkiendrim.com/...peek-du-hobbit/#more )

Excellent. Good looking out. [In reply to] Can't Post

Don't alert The Warners. They might ruin this link as well, even though they already shared it internationally.

Something is fishy about this: [In reply to] Can't Post

Before the premiere, some guy asked Elijah Wood about a "sneak peak on facebook" and then was pushed back and sent away being told "You ruined it for everyone."

Take a look at the end of this video:
http://www.3news.co.nz/High-drama-on-eve-of-Hobbit-premiere/tabid/312/articleID/278296/Default.aspx?ref=vid_2012-11-22

I don't know if this is connected to the clip or not, but it seems as though it could be.

Perhaps something happened off-screen? It seems strange if this was in reaction just the the clip!

I thought the same thing [In reply to] Can't Post

Maybe he saw the whole movie and said something about it that he shouldn't have earlier, hence the "You've ruined it for everyone." We'll probably never know though.

LOL. I'm sure quoting the post that lists the URL doesn't do anything to help Warners' search engine either.
