Here's a hint - freckles.

Okay this is pretty cool. I've been a little tired of 3D lately, but this is looking amazing. Even the concept art is being sketched in blue and red so the scenes can be imagined in 3D.

48 frames per second 5k resolution 3D = back of theatre cut out with "real" stuff going on.

Bring on the new technology.

The Hobbit Movie Trailer Description | Hobbit Movie News and Rumors | TheOneRing.net™

 
Quote:
Starts with Bilbo (Ian Holm!!) talking to Frodo (Elijah Wood) at Bag End about his “adventures” and how he didn’t tell him everything.

Shows Gandalf making his proposition to young Bilbo and introducing all 13 dwarves by name as it cuts to each.

Bilbo protests of course, because Bagginses belong at Bag End.

The “big” scene is the dwarves, led by Thorin, singing a long slow song. I didn’t catch all the words, but I have to assume it’s from the book. Very ominous tone.

Lots of images in a montage, of travelling and fighting. I think I saw some goblins, and maybe some troll legs, but it went by quickly. Some creepy ruins–looked almost like Moria, but without the majesty. I wasn’t sure if it was underground in the goblin stronghold or something else. Dol Guldur?

There is definitely Rivendell and the shards of Narsil and maybe Elrond, but again, I can’t be sure.

No Smaug at all. No hints at plot, really. No Beorn that I could see. Not even any spiders, although I think I saw some creepy woods. One of my favorite scenes was the dwarves cleaning Bilbo’s dishes after dinner. Expect some acrobatic dishes

Thorin is depicted as a bit callous–he tells Gandalf he can’t guarantee his safe return. Gandalf agrees, and Thorin adds “Nor will I be responsible for his fate.”

It ends with Gandalf saying to Bilbo that if he returns, he may be changed–this is in voiceover while we see THE RING, and Gollum climbing behind Bilbo in the cave.

Can’t wait to see it again!

That link isn't working for me.

Have I done something to offend the Eye of Sauron the Deceiver?

Lots of people are having problems. The 720p worked best for me.

Maybe you LOTR nerds can help me out. Does anyone know the titles of the music in the trailer? I know that they're from Fellowship, but haven't been able to place them (most notably the cue at the end of the trailer during the Gollum encounter). It's been driving me crazy.

Doing a little search right now, it looks like the cue you're looking for from the end of the trailer is from something commonly referred to as "The History of the Ring." And it's reused in other variations throughout the LOTR trilogy.

Here's a good example of it. From the Complete Recordings for Two Towers, it's called "My Precious." That little cue can be heard clearly starting at around 0:24 in this video.



And here's a super nerdy page telling us every time that it's used in the trilogy:
