I’m here with a bit of a late (quick) post today but after watching the new trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, I felt compelled to put this up on the site. I like this trailer a lot more than the first trailer for the film. It gives a bit more of a dark and epic vibe to the film that makes me pretty excited for. While I would have been really interested in seeing a Guillermo del Toro directed Hobbit film, I’m really happy to have Peter Jackson at the helm for these new films as it creates a wonderful aesthetic continuity with the Lord of the Rings trilogy. I also thought the tag at the end of the trailer was rather funny. It’s a predictable scenario but seeing a giant and gross creature fall on top of them made me laugh out loud a little. I cannot wait to to see this film.
