As cool as the new movie will be, I think these event only make me not want to watch any more blogs or behind the scenes or fan events.
The questions just drive me crazy and so do the drawn out answers to questions I would not care to hear answered. Like a gag reel, don't care thanks. Some may I suppose, but not me. I would like to see all the scenes that didn't make the extended cut into the film. I didn't need to hear about pace in order to understand why things are edited, it is the same in writing and it is very obvious when I saw the first Bilbo scene with Elrond that was cut, yeah, that would be too much boredom in a theater crowd. Didn't care about farewells either, seriously, you want to know what it was like for a person to say bye to someone who he will see 15 more times at other events tied to these films. It is not like they can't call each other up and say hello just because they are not working together on a project. but I guess PJ has to answer these kind of questions... glad that the ones streaming on the screen didn't get asked... like "lee will you marry my friend" ummm really, these are the fans we are tied too, face palming all the way.
The trailer added a few new glimpses, but I still am not more or less exited for the film as they have not shown us anything new, just a bit more of stuff we already know is there from previous trailers.
Sorry to be negative, I am making light of it, lol. Don't invite me to the next PJ anything, including any of his blogs, I have had enough of his bare feet. :lol:

I understand what your saying and I feel that way too somewhat. I almost never watch the behind the scenes features on the DVD's. I think it takes away from the immersion into the story.

However watching it with my two 16 year old daughters and looking at the audience, we may not be the target audience. These events are for the massive geeks that live, breathe and eat this stuff.

As these events go, it was not bad. I really didn't like that they cut off the internet audience 2/3rds of the way through and the rest of the event was only for the audiences in the movie theaters. There was no reason to exclude 99.99% of the fan base who could not get tickets.

Looking at the video blog, I think I see Bolg at 12 seconds in. At least a bad guy with that big club of his.

I think that bad guy with the club is Azog. The face looks very similar.

Don't think its Azog. Its a different actor and the metal on the head is the Bolg thing.

The Live event was a lot of fun, just to get hyped and all. The new trailer is neat, as was the production video.

Is that Bolg's actor there thought? The club looks familiar, shit I really hope they don't scratch his design and go all CGI. I'm a bit worried now. We have not seen much Bolg promotion either in trailers or posters, which is strange since the design has been known for a long time.


There's a theory on this Bolg business going on in our neigbour forum:

1:10, were those Orcs in Lake Town? :shock:

Above all, I'm looking forward to the Wood Elves. Tauriel looks awesome, I want her miniature. And one of Legolas in Laketown (?) standing on the banister, shooting down the stairs.

That's right Eldarion and Legolas is indeed in Laketown too. Coincident? I think not.
