We’ve seen tons of footage and several trailers for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, but this is by far Peter Jackson and Warner Brothers’ most grand look yet at Middle Earth.  So much is shown in this trailer that you might want to think twice before seeing it.  With the previews released earlier this year and the behind the scenes footage released from thehobbitblog.com, I feel like I’ve seen a part of every key scene of the film.  Will I see it anyway?  Of course!  But you have to consider at some point it’s time to stop watching previews–to save some awe for the first actual viewing in the theater–and “get on with the release already”.  Still the sweeping vistas, and grand, epic, classic imagery will be enough to whet your appetite for now.

It’s tomorrow in New Zealand (I love seeing comments at thehobbitblog.com dated a day that hasn’t arrived here yet!) and yesterday the best friend of fantasy film fans, director Peter Jackson released behind the scenes footage that he showed fans at the Hall H panel at Comic-Con this year.

Like Jackson’s prior blog video updates, this one shows a lot of the cast and crew, but it has even more than before, including interviews with many of the dwarves, as well as nice footage of the key sets from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, to be released this December.

It’s very cool that Jackson would release this footage to everyone so quickly after Comic-Con.

One more item–there is also word out that Jackson is in talks to change the two movie deal to three Hobbit movies.  Apparently he has enough footage for three full length films.  We’ll share more as we learn about any updates.

Tomorrow, come back for updates on next summer’s reboot of Superman, Man of Steel.
