Fans of JRR Tolkien, fans of Sir Peter Jackson, and fans of the cast of The Hobbit–especially fans of the talented British actor Richard Armitage who portrays Thorin Oakenshield (right in character as Thorin from the 4th production video)–have had one year of earnest movie making watching.
And we have almost one year to go until the December 14, 2012 premiere (poster at left) of “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”–and then another year after that for the second film, “The Hobbit: There and Back Again”. Here is that Hobbit countdown clock I called up to remind us: http://www.timeanddate.com/counters/customcounter.html?msg=The+Hobbit+US+Premiere&month=12&day=14&year=2012&hour=5&min=00&sec=00&p0=64
In the meantime, we eagerly consume the intriguing bits of filmmaking news shared by the films’ director Sir Peter Jackson via his production videos–happily screen capping excerpting parts of the video to enjoy as stills for use in wall papers, signatures, or blog posts. Well, I haven’t developed the particular technical skill of screencapping and excerpting videos yet, so I rely on others who do it so well–RAnet (www.richardarmitagenet.com ) and Bccmee (www.fanvideos.wordpress.com), etc.
I wonder, will fans be as tuckered out by the time the movie comes around as I’m guessing the cast, crew, and production staff will be? Heck no! Though anticipation is sweet torment, “The Hobbit” films are something to look forward to–like a gift that hasn’t been opened yet.
So since everyone is focused on “The Hobbit” today, here is the movie’s teaser trailer “dropped” yesterday and can be viewed at Bccmee’s blog http://fanvideos.wordpress.com/2011/12/20/the-hobbit-trailer-20-december-2011/ that also has transcriptions and screen caps by her. And here is the youtube video directly provided by the amazing lady and friend whom I refer to as Tech Goddess Divine bccmee2:
All I have to say is this is one amazing movie teaser trailer!
And here are some amazing pictures from that video, screen capped by my good friend Dhana of “Do I Have a Blog” blog (see her blog link in the blog roll to the right):
