Hey folks, Harry here... I'm going HOBBIT crazy... I am. Can't help it, I'm powerlessly in the grasp of it. I watch every commercial. This year while prepping BNAT, I've decided to just give myself over to the insanity of dying to see this movie - a force that will be something in the back of every BNATTER'S mind until the end of the event when the soul-crushing reality that they're not seeing it, and that it is true that I am seeing it the Monday after BNAT at a Press Screening, something I'll repeatedly say, but they'll repeatedly ignore. No, they all believe it is playing. You go to the Facebook BNAT board and they all think I'm going to turn all the lights off for like half an hour as Andy Serkis whispers Riddles in the Dark to us. Yeah, they're going crazy. And why the hell not.
I mean, look at this tv spot... Not only does it show glimpses that remind me of Vermithrax Pejorative in how Smaug swoops... I LOVE IT! As I've watched the commercial below about 50 times today - it seems that Smaug is raiding Erebor, so I'm assuming that Thorin or Gandalf tells us a bit about Smaug taking the Dwarf's homes from them. This trailer goes on to give us glimpses of LARGE ARMIES IN CONFLICT - is that a glimpse at the 5 Armies conflict? Is their a framing device that gives us this? I ask these questions, but I don't really want to know the answers until it plays for me, Monday night, December 10th.
Here's the commercial
And to show how crazy obsessed I am with THE HOBBIT, here's this year's BNAT14WOLF Poster - drawn by Mondo's Johnny Sampson... I love this thing...
