The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Trailer

I suppose I should've waited to do my trailer round-up, since the Hobbit trailer was released online just a few hours later. Anyway, here it is, and it looks good!

I had a lot of problems with Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings trilogy of films, since I'm a huge fan of the novels and he took too many liberties and made too many unnecessary changes that really hurt the overall story and gutted the heart of some of the characters, but this one looks very cool. Also, the original Hobbit novel is more lighthearted and fun than the Lord of the Rings books, so it should be more in line with Jackson's somewhat whimsical film style.

Anyway, I'll see it:

Oh, man. Don't even tell me about a movie that's coming out a year from now.

I agree that it can be annoying when you see a trailer or teaser for a film that isn't coming out until well over a year, but in this case, I can understand it. This film has been in production for so long -- and was just rumored and hinted out for years before then -- that I can understand why they put out a trailer this early in the production, if only to let people know that it's actually being made.
