    "The Hobbit" trailer debuts, "Lord of the Rings" prequel

    I'm not a huge "LOTR" fan, but this does look cool.

    Watch it below:

    Have to say I think casting Martin Freeman is genius and Cate Blanchett is gorgeous as always.

    I never could get into LOTR and this looks like a carbon copy, which it should be being a prequel. Not for me.

    If you're a sci-fi/horror fan (which I'm personally not but it's still big news), Ridley Scott returns with Prometheus.

    I love LOTR and the Hobbit was my favorite of all 4 books. Toliken had much more humor in the Hobbit than the Ring trilogy. Hmmm....I just realized I don't have the Hobbit on audiobook. I listen to the Ring trilogy at least once a year. Must remedy this situation. And, I'll enjoy the movie as well, especially since Jackson finished it. More Ian McKellen I will be forever bummed that he didn't play Dumbledore.

    Well, yes, but it's evident Gandalf was the inspiration, sort of, for Dumbledore. He could have done both. I had no problems with Richard Harris, but Michael Gambon should NEVER have been cast in that role.

    Well you have a point, but still, Gandalf is SO much better than Dumbledore in SO many ways !!
    So I'd rather have him as Gandalf and Gandalf only
    It will be so strange to see all those characters again. I'm still mourning about the loss of so many of them

    I know. But I do not approve. And I am not resigned.

    Trivia: "The Hobbit" was written first (as far as publication goes) and was not originally written or intended to have anything to do with The Lord of the Rings. In fact after deciding to make it backstory for LOTR, Tolkien had to go back to the already-published book and "correct" the story of how Bilbo acquires the Ring from Gollum because the original version (which JRRT called "Bilbo's fictional account") suddenly made no sense with how the Ring affects the Ringbearers-Gollum originally wagered the Ring away of his own accord, which he obviously wouldn't do. It was originally meant to just be a fairly light, readable fantasy, which is why it's missing things like the long poetical digressions and massive amounts of backstory.

    And the first thing I thought when I saw "The Fellowship of the Ring" was "Why aren't they making 'The Hobbit'?" (The LAST thing I thought was "OMG THIS MOVIE IS INSANELY LONG END END END..." Clearly I am not the person for whom the Extended Editions were created.)

    ETA: Since when is Galadriel in "The Hobbit"?

    They did the same when the firt LOTR was released. Agonizing !!
    danceronice : funny, the short versions of the movies are boring to me since so much has been left out.
    My only regret of the whole thing still is Tom Bombadil

    Does anyone have any info on Pern ?

    See, I couldn't even follow the books and got bored senseless. The movies made EMINENTLY more sense (like I could finally follow what was going on in the paths of the Dead in ROTK SEEING it rather than trying to parse Tolkien. I wish C.S. Lewis would have sat down with him and said "All right, John, I appreciate your spiritual support [Tolkien was a devout Catholic and helped bring Lewis around when he was having some very dark times], now can we have a chat about clarity of writing?")

    Regarding Dragonriders of Pern: Anne passed away on November 21, which could maybe be a boot to the rear of the people who own the rights. It's Copperheart Entertainment (fwiw, their last big relase was "Splice") and they do have someone doing a treatment based on Dragonflight, Dragonquest, and The White Dragon. If they try to film mutliples I hope they mostly pare out the massive plot cul-de-sac that is Dragonquest (I'd give a LOT to read the first draft of that book which allegedly Anne's editor told her to burn and she did) as the only really important parts are arguing over going to the Red Star and Jaxom Impressing Ruth. Maybe lose most of the whiney whinging useless Brekke plot (as she's never important again anyway) and feed in the overlapping bits of Dragonsong/Dragonsinger...

    We can't have Ian McKellan as Gandalf, Magneto AND Dumbledore. Way too greedy.
    In my spare time, I like to interview figure skating legends.
