    I got chills when Thorin started to sing. And the song actually was in the book. What I really, really hope for, is that when Bilbo and the dwarves get captured by the goblins, that there will be something along the lines of the song "Down to Goblintown" that was in the old Hobbit animated movie from the 70s. I can't really remember if that song was in the book or not.

    I cannot wait until this time next year. Why oh why did it have to be a year away?! And then we have to wait yet another damn year after that to watch the 2nd half.

    After looking at it, i go out and walk around my office, my co-worker looks down and so do I.

    Is it wrong to get a boner from watching this? specially the gollum part, riddles in the dark is my favorite part of the book.

    www.theonering.net has been around since before FoTR was released, and PJ himself posts to the forums there on occasion. I didn't read the entire thread, so my apologies if this has already been posted. http://theonering.net

    As for the trailer... yeah... completely epic, and I've watched it probably 10 times. I love the way the dwarf chanting develops into a full orchestral score. Beautiful.

    I was a huuuge fan of the book and the lotr trilogy books/movies, was rather optimistic about this film when I first heard of it but now I see the same characters are being used, Peter Jackson is directing it (I had no idea) and just everything in that trailer is just...damn ran out of words, utterly speechless at this trailer. I`d recommend to anyone who hasn`t: Read the book beforehand.
    Now the wait begins...

    Edit: Got a massive chill down my back when Thorin started singing. :O

    Well, i'm not as excited as i was for LoTR, but i'm sure it'll be better than anything that has been released in 2011.

    Making it in 2 parts is seriously the best thing that could ever happen. Absolutely humonguous props to Peter Jackson for convincing any movie studio - regardless of the success of the original LotR movies - to make a movie based off of a book into a two-part, big budget film. That could not have been easy to pitch to the studio.

    It would've been terrible to try and squeeze all of that lovely detail into one movie.

    And more likely true to the story.

    That's what's wrong with trying to make LotR into a movie. Peter Jackson did a great job with the movies but he had to cut so much and change the story just to fit it into 3 movies and those movies were long . . . awesome . . . but long.

    The Hobbit is obviously a shorter story, being only one book. And the fact that he's splitting it into two movies makes me hope that its because he wants to be more accurate with this one than he was with LotR.

    OH FUUUU! The Hobbit and the end of Christopher Nolan's Batman . . . oh man oh man oh man oh man

    i don't think LotR was that long, specially because they didn't feel so, because they were awesome.

    does it really need to be a two parter >.<

    apart from that I'm excited, I read that book and loved it, though had a bit more trouble with the lord of the rings series. I got lost in the sea of characters to the point the chat stopped making sense. :/

    I am super excited for the trailer, but the only thing that bugs me, is that it looks like we are going to learn WAY TOO MANY characters :/ It's like "Simli, Fimli, Gimli, Tompy, Fumpy, Rumpy", not those names, but the names are read like that.

    Very boring trailer in my opinion, nothing to get excited about. Will wait for download.

    My god it's like I'm 10 all over again and gaping at that song after reading it for the first time. How absolutely incredible. I've still got chills.

    Not too many characters. There are 13 dwarves. Gandalf says "13 is an unlucky number. And Bilbo makes 14" (or something along those lines). He got the names of many of his dwarves from actual dwarf names in norse mythology, from what I read.

    Ya Tolkien grab a lot of his influences from ancient Norse and Germanic mythology. I love it.
