Probably everyone here in Armor Games has heard of the movie trilogy "The Lord of the Rings". Since it is one of the biggest movie franchises.

I have read this book and I always thought of how good a movie it would be if it were a movie. The book is "The Hobbit". Which is the preludge to the "Lord of the Rings". I hope it will be a great movie and I have been waiting for this movie to come out for a long time.

Here is the trailer

I would like to hear your thought on the movie or what you think it will leave out from the book!

After he finishes this Peter should talk to Christopher about making the Simarrillion into a movie.

am i the only 1 that thinks that the dwarfs are animated very poorly?
and if they are not animated, the costumes are made not life like.

Impossible.. The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are good film material because they're single stories, that have a beginning and an end. The Silmarillion however covers a huge time and contains a great number of single stories with so many different characters.. think of it more lke a story book, a collection of events. If they try to make a film out of it, they'll horribly fail... that is, if I don't kill them before.

Then you have to remember the history of middle earth. I certainly enjoy reading about the rest of middle earth before and after but that is just too much. Back to the original topic have you guys seen peter jacksons youtube videos. There is one where they try to see who knows the names of all the dwarves and the only one who knows is gandalf. Also they had John Rhys-Davies (gimli) Come on set and he sees the man playing gimli's father and he goes "Daddy!" and they hug. It was hilarious

I certainly hope they don't leave out beorn. In the Rankin Bass version (Yes the people that made all of those christmas movies made a Hobbit movie) They just avoided it altogether. Not to mention they left out a lot of details in the beginning. I was dissapointed but at least they included the songs tolkien wrote.

i'm going to see the midnight premiere, can't believe that they would make it into 3 movies though, it wasn't even that long of a book

2 movies, not three, one this december and one next december. (i think)

The simarrilion is five books only, and they could easily add the first two into the quenta simarrilion.
