    Wow! Looks like a fine addition to the LotR films. Can’t wait to see Smaug, but I’m guessing that’ll be in the second film…

    Looks good, disappointed it will be in two parts though. I suppose they want to milk it for as much as they can.

    I never imagined the song about the Misty Mountains being sung as a dirge before – I’ve got a BBC audio adaptation on disk and once owned the Rankin Bass version of Betamax tape – and they always did it as a cheerful, bouncy song. How fitting it is as a dirge! The trailer looks great. But we have to wait a whole year? Darn it.
