Simply awesome. :P
This is a discussion on "Hobbit Trailer!!" in the Film & Television forum.
I'm really, really excited for this! At first, I wasn't a fan of them splitting The Hobbit into two movies, but from the trailer, it looks like they're going to add a lot of Lord of the Rings tie-ins that weren't in the original book, so I can see how the adventure could grow beyond the scope of a single movie.
And I don't have a problem with these additions, since Tolkien himself rewrote the Gollum chapter, and originally considered rewriting the entire book, in order to bring it into conformity with his later ideas.
I'm still wondering where they'll split it, though. The most natural place seems right after they meet with Beorn, but, depending on where they decide to put the story's emphasis, it could be done at any number of places.

I have now watched the trailer more than 100 times over the past few weeks. For inspiration more than anything.

I can't wait for it. I think I might have to dig my copy out.
