Nolan was referring to capacity of the IMAX Reel/Platters for 70mm Projection. Since The Hobbit was shot in 3D it will be projected digitally so it shouldn't really be a problem.

Going to see the Hobbit really gives you great value for the money. A 2hour 40min adventure plus 4 awesome trailers and a 9min prologue. Dunno know why anybody would miss that or just go for the trailers alone.

Agreed. I don't know why some people judge a movie even before watching it or reading reviews.

No, it's baffling. It's the Hobbit, for christ sake. Even if the LOTR-trilogy might've gotten a bit stale, and the Hobbit looks to be a bit like more of the same, it's still gonna be a fantastic visual experience. And it's looking way more fun and less self-important than both TTO and ROTK.

LOTR was an enjoyable trilogy to me and it was was critically acclaimed too, with numerous academy awards and nominations.

I will be watching Hobbit even if MOS trailer was not attached, but not in IMAX as it is 150 kms away from where I live.

Hating on popular franchises seems to be "cool" thing to do for some people.

For the same reason you dont watch every movie that comes out-somes movies just dont grab your interest.The hobbit trailer and story just isnt grabbing me and it seems to the same for some others.

All i see is a generic fantasy film with good effects.I havent seen or heard anything that makes me go "wow gotta watch it".All i see makes me go "maybe get it on dvd."

The only thing the movie has going for it is that it connected to Lotr and thats not enough to see it in cinema.

Of course id change my mind if the word of mouth is good

Yeah, I'd so absolutely watch it regardless. Saying you love movies, but skipping something like this doesnt make sense. It doesnt get any better than this IMO if you want a good old fashioned, but modern fairytale. And add to that some of that edge and violence from LOTR.

Yeah. I'm looking forward to The Hobbit more than the MOS trailer. Getting both at once will be a treat.

I also wouldn't be surprised if MOS is a comparable length to The Hobbit (2h40m) considering all the big scenes we know will be in it already.

You know, I never doubted (and still don't) that we'll get a trailer with The Hobbit, but it is not confirmed yet. I wondered for a while why EVERYONE (around the net) was so quick to trust a ´´The Lebanese Movie Cinema Guide`` site (only a year young as it turns out) and now my suspicions have been proven correct. They also said in the same breath with MOS that Wolverine will get the trailer.

Well, James Mangold, the director of Wolverine, tweeted that the report is false and that there will be no trailer in front of The Hobbit.

As for NTF, I did some digging and the only thing they got right was a scene description of MOS. Hardly surprising since there were DOZENS of soldiers in the scene. Its not hard to believe one of them knows someone from NTF. Also, they posted an exclusive a while back that TDKR will get an extended edition. BS as usual.

So there you have it boys and girls, there is no reliable confirmation out yet. And probably wont be until the trailer gets classified.

Well damn. I still think we are getting a trailer though.

We are.

I wouldn't be surprised if The Wolverine gets a trailer as well. Maybe not with The Hobbit, but around that time.

Of course we are! Just like everyone and their dog knew a teaser would be in front of TDKR. It's a no-brainer. But at the end of the day, it's still speculation (no matter how certain) and that doesn't belong in news reports, IMO. But I know that's not the way media works, unfortunately.

The frustrating thing is how every website passes along false informaiton without checking it. Most of these websites don't have sources. They just pass along stuff and state it as fact.

Speaking of the trailer, we should get some stills by the months end or at the start of December. Maybe an Empire Magazine cover (they wouldn't give a no answer to this question) in the January issue #283 (out next Thursday, I think). TDKR had Batman/Bane covers last year, I think Star Trek got one the first time around and The Hobbit was on this months covers. So...here's hoping.

I'd be surprised (and slightly concerned) if NOTHING came out in the next two weeks.

I don't think we will be getting stills until after the trailer. I look at EW as a good guide. With Batman I think they had a pattern of having cover stories in January and July.

Yeah, it's annoying. Sometimes I get the feeling like they just post speculation that seems like a sure thing and say ´´our source`` so that when it comes true they can say ´´See, we have reliable sources!``. I wonder though, does anyone really fall for that?

Lol I was so quick to want to believe it that I ignored my normal, "Who are these people" , "How do they know" , "Why hasn't anyone reliable reported this." I just took it and ran. Very immature of me. Thanks for the wake up call G. Godfrey.

If you look at the history of this movie so many things have turned out to be false. So many of these exclusive sources turn out to be bogus.

All Batman films, GL even SR (I think) got a few stills before the trailer. After doesn't make much sense.

A cover issue may be a bit wishful thinking but stills are the norm.

The reason I said the stills would appear after the trailer is because I feel like they are hiding what the actors actually look like until the trailer. I don't think we'll be seeing how Zod and the others look until the trailer comes out. They seem like they're keeping it a surprise. It's been about a year and a haf and we have only one still of Superman.

"It's fun. I can't wait for 'The Hobbit,' so it will be fun to see our crazy 'Man of Steel' trailer and then enjoy the Hobbit because that's going to be great," Snyder told MTV News. "It just feels like a fun Christmas thing to do, drag the whole family out for that action."

We all knew it was going to happen, but to hear it from the man himself means I can look forward to it without any trepidation

So 2-D and 3-D trailers, pretty cool actually. People will able to see how well the 3-D is looking, since there is definitely varying degrees of quality out there.

OK,

if Zack Snyder thinks the trailer is crazy, then, I mean.....

Hype level: 99999999999999999999999999x

Now excuse me while I try and find a way to freeze myself until The Hobbit comes out.

Here is the rest from that article:

Snyder is embracing the holiday spirit ahead of schedule, via the fanfare surrounding the recent release of the "Watchmen Collector's Edition" along with the heroic efforts of "Man of Steel" stars Henry Cavill and chief villain Michael Shannon.

"Shannon is great, he has such great enthusiasm and dedication constantly," Snyder said of the "Take Shelter" actor fully embracing Zod.

"You can imagine that you could get actors who go, 'Oh right, it's Zod, it's not 100 percent serious,' or [you can play it] slightly with a wink, there is none of that with him. His effort is to make it realized and to understand this character and what he has to go through, so you have that on one side and you have Henry, who basically is Superman, on the other side and that dynamic."

Snyder went on to say that he is incredibly thankful that Cavill and Shannon were onboard with the idea of making their iconic comic book characters as real as possible.

"I was just incredibly fortunate to play with those guys who really were giving all they had to bring a level of commitment to the scenes they have together so that audiences will get an opportunity to really have their heroes taken seriously," he said. "As serious as I was taking it, and I don't mean that from a depressing kind of way but from a, 'This is important and fun and needs to be given the respect that it deserves,' from that perspective it was so exciting to watch them drink the Kool-Aid of that concept and go all the way."

And in nearing the home stretch in completing the film ahead of its June 14 release, Snyder seems more than content with his post-production progress.

"I'm super psyched. It's really fun," he said of his continued enthusiasm for "Man of Steel." "I have no superhero fatigue."
