First Reactions To “The Hobbit: The Battle Of The Five Armies” Film Trailer

Well, this is embarrassing. The trailer for the final movie of The Hobbit trilogy, The Battle of the Five Armies, was actually released back in July… and here I am writing a post about it in October!

Oops. In my defense, though, I thought I read some interview in which Peter Jackson said the trailer wouldn’t come out until, like, November. And maybe that’s true. Maybe more trailers – longer trailers – will be released later on. Actually, I’m pretty sure that will happen. But I don’t mind, because I’ve been dying to talk about the last movie, and I want to do so now.

P.S. You can find my earlier film trailer reaction posts here.

Warning: Spoilers ahead, so read/watch at your own risk!

0:12 – Don’t do the sad face, Bilbo. Because then it makes me sad, and also makes me feel like I should hug you forever and ever. (This is a common problem I have with fictional characters.)

0:20 – Does this scene make anyone else want to be a dragon, or is it just me? Like, does anyone else ever have those days when you just want to SET THINGS ON FIRE? (Yes, my day was like that, in case you’re wondering.)

0:29 – SO MUCH PRETTY SCENERY.

0:33 – I don’t like the choice of music here. This is Pippin’s song from The Return of the King and it’s, well… Pippin’s. I hope we hear something new in the actual movie (or in its credits). Don’t recycle old music!

0:38 – KILI. YOU ADORABLE DWARF, YOU.

0:45 – I’m so confused. Is Gandalf dead in the third movie? Why?

0:48 – This is exactly what my room looks like, if you were to replace gold with books!

0:52 – FIGHTING DWARVES. DYING DWARVES. I’M GOING TO CRY NOW.

1:04 – I’m pretty sure this cart-thingy wasn’t in the book, but I totally need one of these. It would be very useful for all my trips to the library.

1:11 – I had to rewind this bit because I thought Bard said “peas” and not “peace.” WILL YOU HAVE PEAS? OR WAR?!

1:14 – BIG SCARY DEEP VOICE OF DOOM. I am impressed.

1:17 – Pause the video right here! I swear, Legolas makes the bestest faces.

1:24 – This is what I always imagine myself doing when I read high fantasy books. I know they say the pen is mightier than the sword, but… I really want a sword.

1:32 – I know this is supposed to be a DRAMATIC POSE, but it really, really reminds me of a class picture. Therefore, I am amused.

1:38 – “Will you follow me… one last time?” NO. BECAUSE I DON’T WANT THIS TO BE THE LAST TIME.

After watching this trailer, I reached a very important conclusion – namely, that I AM NOT READY FOR THIS MOVIE AND NEVER WILL BE. I will probably sit in the movie theater and cry. (So if you’re reading this and you’re one of my non-Internet friends and you want to see this movie with me, consider yourself warned. There will be sobbing. Lots of it.)

What’s your opinion of the trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies?

And who else isn’t ready for this movie and will probably cry in the theater? BECAUSE I NEED TO KNOW THAT I’M NOT ALONE IN THIS.

    I WANT PEAS! NOT WAR! PEEEAS!! *ahem* So I hadn’t watched it till now either. Um. Yes. I do like LOTR and The Hobbit, but I have like a short attention span for battles mostly and theses are too long battles for moi in one sitting. I’ll probably not see it in cinemas (MOCKINGJAY). But I still want to know how it ends! Since, it’s like, nothing like the books…ha. 😉

    I always want to be a dragon. Always.

      I know, right? This movie’s title was originally “There and Back Again” (which I like because it’s one of the most well-known Tolkien phrases) and now that it’s been changed… god, I hope the battle won’t take up most of the movie. I like character-development-y scenes, not endless violence. xD

      Indeed. Or I want a pet dragon. 😛

    on pippin and music: i believe billy boyd is actually involved in writing a new, original song for this film?

    …which will almost certainly make me cry.

    • nevillegirl says:

      OH MY GOD
      IF THAT’S TRUE IT WOULD MAKE MY DAY
      😀 😀 😀
      I 100% APPROVE OF THIS
      (Do you know if it’ll be in-movie, like “Pippin’s Song” was, or is it for the credits?)

      (EDIT: Never mind, I answered my own question! I guess he’s doing the credits song OMG I’M GONNA CRY.)

    I need to reread the book before the last movie comes out, because I haven’t read it since I was like eight. 😛

    I totally laughed out loud when you said that cart thing would be perfect for library trips, BECAUSE IT IS!

    So not ready for this movie. Nope. Not ready. Must remember to bring several boxes of tissues to the theater…
