I am very disappointed over the stretching of the novel into three movies. The Lord of the Rings trilogy was outstanding, loved it. The Hobbit was and still is my favorite book, but to stretch ONE or TWO CHAPTERS of the novel into a 2 hour movie, reeks of commercialism and lessens the magic the book held for me.


That said, here';s the trailer


As disgusted as I am, I will probably still go see it in the theater.

Hi Homer!!!

I don't care if they split up the chapters into more movies. I can't seem to get enough of this stuff! LOVE IT!

I thought the trailer was alright. Some of the lines were corny though. "Bats," lol.

I don't have a problem with the expanding of the material. Peter Jackson has used information from the appendices, which make it all the more better. As for some of his personal interpretations and added material, i'm mostly okay with it. It looks as if he will have it all tied up nicely in the end.

I agree that the material from the book has been stretched a little thin by three movies. That being said, the last movie I saw in a theater was the previous installment last December. There aren't many decent movies being made anymore and I really love the Tolkien books.

I thought "Fellowship" was a bit of a snore at times. The other two installments of the 'Ring' trilogy were awesome.
I've seen the first two of "The Hobbit" series and I doubt I'll see the third in a theater unless I hear something really good about. The others just didn't grab me. It could have been one movie.

I have been a huge fan of JRR Tolkein books since I can remember. I have gone to every movie that has been made. I will go see the last one, no matter what. I have all the DVD of the movies and I rewatch everyone of them a couple times a year. I am a big fan of Peter Jackson and company work.

The first Hobbit movie did not IMO live up to the three LotRings movies. It lost me. So I have not seen the second one yet. However the battles in this preview have sparked my interest again and I prob will return to the world of middle earth. I just love the musical scores in the trailer. I am really looking forward to getting lost in the battle between the Republic and the Empire again and maybe this Five Armies film will tide me over until Disney kills off my friends from long ago and far far away.
