Sure, it may be a trailer, but at least it's a triple wide.

Been hearing some bad things about it - in that it looks like really clean video. Not sure it's a good idea. In the behind the scenes clips Jackson has been posting they're really having to accentuate color. Not so worried about that since we haven't seen the final version. Going to wait for reviews before I see the 48fps version. Count me in for the 24fps.

i really lost faith in it being a 'good series of movies' around when they announced that it was being split into two movies. i lost all hope in it being anything less than a grand jacksonian masturbation session similar to his rework of king kong, when they announced that it was three movies.

let's be honest. the hobbit is shorter than any of the three acts in the lord of the rings, and it reads faster than any two CHAPTERS in the lord of the rings.

it does NOT need to be ten+ hours of facking motion picture.

/insanely torn on seeing it in theaters at all. may wait for netflix.

100% FAIL Mr. Subbingham......actually FAIL on several levels:

1: posting a trailer from Motherfarking Earth News of all places? A site known for it's cutting edge entertainment coverage?

2. NOT A NEW TRAILER

3. Article ends with "The Hobbit: There and Back Again" opens on Dec 14th! (WRONG MOVIE!)


Another green wasted...

Considering how much was actually cut from the trilogy, I can easily see getting a fairly faithful trilogy out of the Hobbit. You could probably have squeezed a trilogy out of each individual book as well. There is just so much in the books, and plenty of parts of all the books that i would love to see expanded upon in film.

From what I gather, Jackson is including a large portion of The Silmarillion, which "fills in the blanks" in The Hobbit, answering questions posed in the narrative (where did Gandalf go, how the dwarves battled back out, etc.). But yes, this one is going to split some people.

When I watched the LOTR trilogy, I hadn't read the books in twenty years (I read them all as a kid). I was generally confused. Now that I've gone back and read the books, I enjoy the films MUCH more.

That stuff isn't from The Silmarillion. He can't do the Silmarillion - Tolkien's family owns the rights and they're not selling.

It is not from the Silmarillion but from indexes in LOTR and from Tolkien's notes.

While I agree with your translation, Thorin was supposed to be 200 years old in the book. He should at least look a bit past his prime.

200 isn't that old, for a dwarf. That's like saying that Galadriel shouldn't look so young because her age is measured in millenia. In any case, it's all nitpicking at this point. Thorin's age won't ruin the movies if they're great, and it won't save them if they suck.

They've already switched to Sony 4K, which supposedly has a hardware upgrade now available for 48fps, so they will probably get it. They don't mess around, and they even issued a press release about the Sony system and how it helps with the 3D projection brightness issue.

I prefer this version of the trailer.
 
2012-08-08 10:06:05 AM

HMS_Blinkin: 200 isn't that old, for a dwarf.


It's later middle age (average lifespan for Tolkein dwarves is 250 years) so if you want to be true to the books, Thorin should appear to be in his early to mid 60's

But then, movies aren't books.

I haven't gotten to see any 48fps video samples from The Hobbit yet, so I'll concede that they may look unnerving. But honestly, that's how I felt about HDTV the first time I watched it. It was distracting. Really too sharp. Then I got used to it after a day or two, and there's no going back. I suspect high frame rates will be the same way.

But I'm much more eager for 48fps than I was for HDTV. I absolutely HATE watching 24fps movies in theaters, to the point that I avoid them. Whatever the threshold between "pretty smooth" and "nauseatingly jittery" is, is between 24 and 30.

The LOTR movies looked like straight World of Warcraft ripoffs, except they had to make the orcs stupid 'bad guys' to fit the mandatory action scenes.

I think it certainly delves into Poe's Law territory. Remember, there were people who actually believed that the "two towers" in LotR: The Two Towers were referencing the world trade center towers.

Anything that's not hand cranked 16 fps just doesn't look "cinematic" to me.

I saw Prometheus in 3D/4K at the drafthouse, and it was spectacular. Well, the movie stunk on ice, but the cinematography and art direction really was spectacular & looked fantastic with the Sony projector.

I also really want to see The Hobbit in 48fps 3D 4K. I'm generally a 24fps proponent (basically because audiences have 100 years of training that 24fps = cinematic), but I'm really interested in seeing what a high-level production like this looks like at 48 fps. Also, I like to see movies as close to how the Director, Producer, Cinematographer, etc intend for them to be seen.

It's a refresh rate thing. In essence, your standard movie projector is "refreshing" the screen 24 times per second. Your average TV has a refresh rate of 60hz, which roughly translates to the screen refreshing 60 times per second. Even though the image being displayed is still only changing 24 times a second in both cases, the slower "refresh rate" of the projector can be perceived by some people as a flicker in the image. Thus those folks can watch a movie on a TV or computer monitor without issue, but will be bothered by your standard movie projector.
