I’ve been waiting for some more footage from Peter Jackson‘s upcoming The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, because quite frankly the first trailer left me with cold feet. I didn’t particularly hate it or anything, but I was unmoved by the first teaser and that isn’t how someone should be left after watching a trailer for a Peter Jackson Hobbit/Rings film!
I know The Hobbit isn’t Lord of the Rings and it shouldn’t be compared to it, but I figured the scope and setting would at least be enough to grab my attention. This newest trailer does grab my attention, but I’m still left without the slightest bit of interest. I’m partially worried and partially excited, because now I can go into the film with the lowest of expectations.
There’s just nothing about any of the images or trailers that have me honestly excited for the film. I’m looking forward to seeing it, but I keep forgetting about its existence in a fall full of great-looking performance pieces and a new Bond film!
Hopefully Peter Jackson‘s long-awaited Hobbit film can deliver for the fans, because it’s been far too long since Jackson has made a quality film.
The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens on December 14th, 2012.
