Two new Desolation of Smaug TV spots!

As fangirlish.com reports, Peter Jackson and co. have released TV spots No. 4 and 5 in anticipation of the second Hobbit movie, set to hit theaters on December 13th. Let’s take a look!

This one features a lot of familiar imagery, with emphasis on themes brought out in Unexpected Journey and several shots shown in previous trailers. One thing that stands out is the bright-colored, overly active effects, which are certain to dazzle those who love the new-age 48 frames-per-second glow, yet frustrate traditionalists who are still clinging to the Lord of the Rings films.

Here’s No. 5:

Here, the emphasis is more on Bilbo and his journey, but there are several moments that ought to excite Hobbit fans considerably. For one thing, it never gets old catching glimpses of the barrels — one of the novel’s most iconic scenes — and the Bilbo-Gandalf dynamic definitely connects well with the successful Gandalf-Frodo tropes in LOTR. My favorite shot? Pause the video at 12 seconds, as the boat travels by water through a quaint, sleepy, almost Scandinavian fishing-looking village. What attention to detail! Often, it’s the set and world creation where Jackson does his best work, and it looks like fans will get plenty of that to chew on.

Less than two months to Desolation of Smaug! Who’s excited?

Fly Air New Zealand, you fools!

If you haven’t seen this airline safety video from Air New Zealand, invoking all kinds of clever Lord of the Rings and Hobbit references, you are in for a treat!

Really, this video has it all, and it’s littered with specific references for LOTR lovers and fans. And most amazingly, it knocks down the two towers of modern air travel:

1. Pick price over airline: This video is so clever, I would actually pay more to fly Air New Zealand.

2. Airline safety videos are boring as sin and always inspire immediate utilization of headphones and loud music: I would absolutely pay attention to this!

The evidence is mounting. LOTR fans need to make that pilgrimage across the oceans to visit the film sites in New Zealand. “It’s a dangerous business going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don’t keep your feet, there’s no knowing where you might be swept off to.”
