    A 45 minute scene of the dwarves washing dishes at Bilbo's house after dinner.

    Theyll make it slow motion when Thorin goes to attack the guy at the end, making it even more laughable than it would be at normal speed.

    Oh.

    Smaug's eye will open at the end inducing a 37 minute long drug trip in the vein of the last 20 or so minutes of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

    is it weird that i actually think that's too long? i like the behind the scenes production stuff but if this is footage from the actual film i don't think i want to see that much of it ahead of time.

    Yeah, but this is The Hobbit. Twenty minutes is only like 1% of the movie.

    When has Peter Jackson ever made anything "too long?"

    I agree with that. I mean, I didn't even care to see the first six minutes or whatever of TDKR when they put it out there.

    Yeah, I kinda agree with you on this one... 20 minutes' worth of a preview is a bit too long. Maybe that's just a rumour, though? The article was pretty vague about it, didn't actually cite anyone competent about the preview length.

    Now I wouldn't mind a 5-10 minute long trailer/preview... :D

    EDIT: Or maybe those 10-20 include behind-the-scenes footage or snippets of interviews with cast and crew? So that the 10-20 minute sneak-peek only contains a smaller amount of actual finished footage?

    That'll be it. Like the webdocs, but with added film footage. The behind-the-scenes stuff will certainly be loaded with teases, too.

    5 minutes is the max for me. Unless it's in IMAX.

    I don't want to see long stretches of films (including the 7-minute Star Trek bit) before they're released. I just want to see well-put-together trailers that make me freak out about why isn't it here yet.

    Jesus, how have you people wrung 166 pages of discussion out of so bad a film? The LOTR trilogy thread can't have done many more pages.

    The movie wasn't great but it wasn't bad either.

    It was like 3 hours of setup.

    Problem is people are all comparing it to the original LOTR, which it never will be. Also seems to be marketed towards younger kids than the original trilogy.

    I'm glad they've moved the third film to the December spot. I don't think the market could have taken two Hobbit films six months apart, particularly if the quality of the films doesn't improve. With Hobbit hitting the billion mark and assured to do well on video, I don't know if Jackson has any incentive to try to rework the project, streamline a bit, tidy it up. The first film was such a bloated mess. It's an almost perfect clone of the TPM phenomenon. The first film of the prequel trilogy is visually striking but has an uninspiring story with some really bad ideas thrown into the mix. Yet it makes a killing at the box office because of the goodwill pent up for years by the excellence of the OT. The director/writer makes some cosmetic changes in the second film to try to address some of the criticism, yet the decisions made at the outset undermine many efforts to improve the trilogy. Reshoots and editing can only accomplish so much, given the immense time pressures.

    With fan goodwill stripped away from the brand, the second prequel is a relative flop, likely still commercially successful but nothing like the box office champion of its predecessors. With the third film, fans bootstrap themselves into a sense of nostalgia and force themselves to shell out the bucks to close out the experience. The last movie again makes a killing, but disappointment among the fans will linger for years.

    The end.

    I only have three websites bookmarked and theonering.net isn't one of them. Maybe it should be, but I still get all my nerd news here. Just now I learned they nixed the plan for a summer release of the third film, so yay.

    Also, the movie really wasn't that bad.

    Nerd points for "Some have beards". But I haven't yet seen a portrait of an elvish beard that looks right. Google searching CĂ­rdan gives goatees and wizard beards, not something that would fit for a very old elf.

    That's the point, the book was marketed towards kids as well, so it would make sense for the movie as well
