    New Trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

    You're either with Peter Jackson you're not.

    Those still cling to the hope Jackson can reclaim the same magic that wowed us eleven years ago. Others see this as the cinematic equivalent of stretch pants. Both sides have merits. Truth is, right or wrong, Jackson is going to have to win many over again (Yes, The Lovely Bones was that bad and Guillermo del Toro was that much better a directing choice!)

    Thankfully relying less on nostalgia for the Lord of the Rings trilogy and excerpts from the book appealing only to the devoted (Look! Singing Dwarves!), this new trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey is a straight-forward affair. More focus on Martin Freeman's Bilbo Baggins and, of course, Gollum. Have to hand it to Weta. They've outdone themselves here.

    It's an upgrade from the teaser trailer, that's for sure. But that isn't saying much. Still remain indifferent.
