    A 2.5 hour battle of the five armies is exactly what I predicted when I found out Jackson was splitting the Hobbit into three movies. I love being right, but I hate being right.

    What do you think Orlando Bloom will get to do in this extended extended version of the battle of Pelennor Fields? Maybe he'll balance on one foot on the back of a giant eagle, a bow in each hand, pulling the drawstrings with his toes, never missing a shot, and never running out of ammunition because he's catching goblin arrows in flight with his teeth.

    Orlando Bloom is probably going to surf on Smaug, let's be honest.

    What are the chances that Jackson decided to have Smaug survive the attack on Lake-town and show up at the actual Battle of the Five Armies?

    The whole fight is going to take place in Mt. Doom. Gandalf and Sauron will swordfight while lava surfing.

    I hope it ends when CGI-Saruman yells "Surfs up!" and eviscerates an entire army by surfing on a lava wave.

    Hmm... while I get the point that There and Back Again made more sense for the whole story (and thus was the subtitle for the novel), I just don't like this new title as much. It sounds too straight forward and too designed to say "hey! this will have huge action scenes in it!".

    The Eye of Sauron will definitely be at the Battle of Five Armies, rolling around the battlefield in a palantir, like a hamster in a plastic ball, shooting death rays at elves, dwarves and humans.

    A time traveling old man Aragorn will appear as well warning Bilbo that Smaug will use the ring of power to cause a black hole in Middle Earth.

    Also, what's with the extraneous "the" in the title?

    I hope they do a fakeout of Bilbo fainting and they cut to the end of the battle, then somebody recounts the entire thing in bloody detail.

    And he faints in slow motion.

    Didn't one of the Narnia books have some old dude look through a glass ball and describe the ensuing battle to the main characters in great detail? I think it was A Horse and His Boy. I want that to happen in this movie soooo bad.

    I predict Sauron will possess Smaug's animated corpse for the Battle. I wish I were joking.

    I predict by the end of the movie, one of the Dwarves (or Legolas) will execute some flashy kill on an orc, turn to face the camera, grin, and say, "Now that's what I'm Tolkien about!"

    (I too wish I were joking.)

    So does this mean that Part IV or V will be titled There and Back Again?

    I'm not keen on this new title, it makes the movie out to be less than it is. We have Smaug's attack on Laketown & the assault on Dol Gulbur to rescue Gandalf. That stuff must take up a good amount of time, as will the dodgy love triangle

    Not really sure if I'll sit out this one in the theatre or wait for a BluRay. Battle sequences got tedious in the second one and I predict this one will be pretty much hack and slash all the time.

    Also, I saw someplace (can't recall where) rumors that they're planning to make additional original films set in Middle Earth. Not a fan of that idea either.

    I'm still waiting for the Broadway musical adaptation of "The Ballad of Tom Bombadil"

    Would they be allowed to do that? The Tolkien estate seems unwilling to let them adapt any other book so I don't know why it would sanction creating original Middle Earth stories.
