Whilst I’m currently knee-deep (or elbow-deep?) in writing the next part of my review on ‘The Fellowship of the Ring’, I think it is essential to pause for a moment and allow time to consider what has just happened over the past two days in ‘The Hobbit’ Trilogy camp …
After the wonderful worldwide fan event, which saw the live correspondence between members of the cast, Peter Jackson and costumed-up fans (along with thousands online – me included), not only were we given a new production diary to look at (click here), but also a new trailer for ‘The Desolation of Smaug’ (cleverly worded as a “sneak peek”).
Suffice to say, I was floored with the awesomeness of the footage – the dark, brooding words of Bard that introduce the piece, to the fast paced, emotionally-driven sequences.
I have to say that this was the first time since the first teaser for ‘An Unexpected Journey’, to leave me completely speechless and filled with such burning anticipation – making life seem momentarily unfair when it came to counting the days, weeks and months that remained until the film’s release.
Thankfully, in just over a month, we can satisfy our curiosity and bask in the glory that certainly emanates from the second installment … woohooo! (sorry, I let myself go a bit loony there :D).
So, if you have not yet seen this “sneak peek”, I urge you to do so here:
Meanwhile, I’m hoping to be able to post the next review section sometime late next week.
Be seeing you! 🙂
