Judging from Twitter and Facebook... [In reply to] Can't Post

... despite (very) few people raging about the inclusion of T & L, a huge majority there comments how excited they are, especially for Legolas' return.

So yes, I am sure it was a marketing decision and it seems a working one. Plus, some of these decisions seem not to have been made by WB or the filmmakers but the magazines themselves, and they usually know what the general audience might get excited about and what might be better left for the movie itself. Depending on how they work with the general audience, we will surely get many new stories from the new characters with the marketing for TABA. Bard/Luke Evans probably having the biggest shot at becoming an audience's favourite.

And some people act like we cannot see anything from the new characters... which is not really the case.


ďAll good stories deserve embellishment."

Praise is subjective. And so is criticism.

"I am afraid it is only too likely to be true what you say about the critics and the public. I am dreading the publication for it will be impossible not to mind what is said. I have exposed my heart to be shot at."

Well, I succeeded in doing a search here and didn't find a thread for this one: Total Film Glorfindela Send a private message to Glorfindela Nov 27 2013, 5:04pm
    Far too much focus on Legolas and Turiel in this one, mainly in the text Glorfindela Send a private message to Glorfindela Nov 27 2013, 5:20pm
        I wouldn't worry about it Eruvandi Send a private message to Eruvandi Nov 27 2013, 6:24pm

                Perhaps "more exciting than the dwarves" wasn't the best way to put it. Let's try just plain "exciting" and "new" Eruvandi Send a private message to Eruvandi Nov 27 2013, 11:41pm

            I agree. I also think the magazines will emphasize certain aspects of the films they feel will sell more magazines or bring more web traffic.// Bladerunner Send a private message to Bladerunner Nov 27 2013, 9:44pm
