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!

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

They announced they're making three parts. Since Christopher Lee will play Saruman in the movies, and Saruman doesn't really occur in the book, I guess they will also show what Gandalf does when he temporarily leaves the dwarves (hunting the Necromancer). That could explain the three parts.

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

I got a one book version. But the point is not the amount written, it's the amount that is portrayed. You couldn't make reasonable movies out of the Silmarillion. What you could do is a series of cartoons, that could work.

Okay, what about a movie on the children of Hurin?

I'll watch it post-review, but three parts is a bit over the top. :/
If it gets great reviews, I'll sit with it.
