    I wouldn't call that a "brand new trailer" as much as I would call it the same trailer as before with a couple of different shots.

    I don't want to beat a dead horse (ok, maybe I want) but this pic just makes me realize how much they screwed up Kili, Thorin and the guy near Gandalf. They just do not look like Dwarves. Like, not at all.

    They're short human, there's nothing Dwarfish about them. They suck and I hate them and I wish they'd go away. To quote Gollum, I don't want them to be.

    Perhaps Gandalf is further away than you think.

    It's not the height, it's the overall look and body structure.

    A very short man is still a man; but make him stocky and sturdy, give him a large beard and a big nose and you have a classic fantasy Dwarf.

    The only one I have a real problem with is the guy in between Gandalf and Bilbo.

    He looks like Aragorn's underachieving brother.

    Not surprising really (though I will try and see this in 48fps) also I thought this was interesting...

    I'll see it in 48fps too. I'm always up for new and unique experiences in cinema.

    I got used to it a while ago. They can't all look like Gimli.

    Yeah I don't mind the looks on certain dwarfs, it's better because you can tell them apart.

    Is there no middle ground?

    No, of course I don't want 13 clones of Gimli. I want 13 different looking Dwarves that I can still recognize as members of the Dwarven race.
    But that's not what I got; shorter men do not count as Dwarves.[/BROKEN RECORD]

    Oh, well.

    That sure is a beautiful dwarf mullet Thorin is sporting. Looks like Mel Gibson's Beyond Thunderdome hairdo.

    I'm aware. It looks mulletish tho, enough for me to make a joke about anyway.

    Does anyone else really, really hate the little advertising banners that now appear on the bottom of images posted here?

    I got The Hobbit and The LOTR trilogy in paperbook. Now Jackson gave us three (rightfully extended) movies from a combined count of about 1,400 pages.

    How the hell is he going to three movies from a barely 300 book?!!
