Comments (0) IT is one of the most eagerly anticipated films of the year and judging by the number of people viewing its official trailer, The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies is likely to be one of the year’s highest grossing movies.Already more than 11 million people have viewed the trailer for Peter Jackson’s latest epic, which follows Bilbo and the Dwarves into Middle Earth for the last time.The third and final film of The Hobbit trilogy joins BilboBaggins and ThorinOakenshield having reclaimedErebor, the home of the Dwarves, from the fire-breathing dragonSmaug, which now threatens to destroy Lake-town.Originally titled There and Back Again, the film changed its name in April in reference to the epic battle involving many known characters from goblins and dwarves to elves and men as legions of orcs descend upon the Lonely Mountain underSauron’s command.

“One day I’ll remember, remember everything that happened. The good, the bad, those who survived, and those that did not,” Bilbo is heard saying at the start of the trailer.

The trailer, which was first unveiled at Comic-Con, was released on the film’s official Twitter account and promptly retweeted by Ian McKellen, who plays Gandalf, and Andy Serkis, the voice of computer-animated Gollum.


Of these 11 millions views of the new trailer, one thousand at least must have been by me alone. Last week I had not been well at all, and my energy level was terribly down. Came the trailer, and my energy level went up at once, on that early Tuesday morning when in my part of the world the trailer was at last released online.

Luckily on that day absolutely no one came knocking on my door, I have been able to stay alone the whole day, on a strict and delightful diet of the Hobbit trailer seen again and again and again, plus a full day treatment of  The One Ring. net forums, that I warmly recommend for good health.

So it is with utmost glee and mirth that I spread the happy news announced above in this article, adding on my own that however stupidly and unjustly the critics and other official reviewers, echoing each other shamelessly, try to shoot down these Hobbit films, the general audience and the fans/geeks like me just know better, and quietly go for their cherished Hobbit movies anyway, with the same avidity, passion and gratitude as ever for that great food for the soul.
