HD Screencaps from Battle of Five Armies teaser trailer Can't Post

Sorry, long time no post, but I wanted to share a set of screenshots taken from the highest quality video I've been able to find - for the detail obsessed (which is most of you).

"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." J.R.R. Tolkien

We all have our hearts and minds one way or another invested in these books and movies. So we all mind and should show the necessary respect.

Thank you DarkJackal. [In reply to] Can't Post

Visually, it's a beautiful trailer. Here are my favourites:

Laketown burning and from afar.

The ethereal Galadriel and Gandalf

Our heroes lined up - poor Bofur

Definitely three dwarves in the chariot [In reply to] Can't Post

The one standing in back has grey hair - most likely Balin, but could be Dori I suppose. Definitely see one of the drivers in front is bald, so pretty sure that's Dwalin, and then in one pic the third driver has a bow, so I'm pretty sure that's Kili. Sounds kind of like a Roman lineup, at least if you go by "Gladiator" - not sure how accurate THAT movie was. I'm thinking they're trying to contact Dain, but I haven't read anything to confirm that.

The chariot [In reply to] Can't Post

Interesting that you see the Roman connection.

Believe it or not, the Gladiator-esque scythes attached to the wheels are probably the least Roman thing about it. The Roman's didn't put scythes on their chariots (they're terribly impractical).

The repeating ballista mounted up front is actually the most Roman thing about the contraption! I'm interested to see how they make use of that.

On the whole, the vehicle resembles a big goat-drawn steel tank more than a chariot, but these are dwarves, after all!

"After all, I believe that legends and myths are largely made of 'truth', and indeed present aspects of it that can only be received in this mode; and long ago certain truths and modes of this kind were discovered and must always reappear." Professor Tolkien, 1951

Awesome Screen grabs [In reply to] Can't Post

Thanks for sharing them,

Some stuff I think might be noteworthy:

As Gandalf goes through the Lake Town camp, you can see members of the Lake Town Guard who seem to be training civilians: http://heirsofdurin.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/thtbotfa_tlrf1_contest_oven_1080_1080p-mov_000017976.jpg

You can also see a Lake Town Guard charing behind Bard here: https://heirsofdurin.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/thtbotfa_tlrf1_contest_oven_1080_1080p-mov_000083875.jpg

It's hard to tell but (to me anyway) Fili, Kili, Bofur and Oin look like they're wearing their pre Laketown clothes (or something similar at least): http://heirsofdurin.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/thtbotfa_tlrf1_contest_oven_1080_1080p-mov_000033366.jpg

Behind Bofur, Nori and another dwarf, (Dori? Gloin?) are wearing big helmets. I wonder how Nori got his over his hair? Tongue: https://heirsofdurin.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/thtbotfa_tlrf1_contest_oven_1080_1080p-mov_000052469.jpg

Thorin's company in their new gear, have reverted back to their original colours (Balin red, Dwalin Green etc): https://heirsofdurin.files.wordpress.com/2014/07/thtbotfa_tlrf1_contest_oven_1080_1080p-mov_000093051.jpg

Yes, my username is terrible.

TORn forum avatars made from trailer screencaps. [In reply to] Can't Post

I've made a bunch of TORn forum avatars for eveyone to use from these trailer screencaps. I would recommend downloading to your own computer (right click - save images as ...) and then follow Magpie's instructions to put it in your profile. No re-sizing required.

You can find other social media banners and icons here.

Enjoy! Smile
