Well, winter is approaching and with it the next installment in the Hobbit saga. The marketing skills of Hollywood have been unleashed at full force. So there is yet another trailer. It looks as good as one would expect — with the unsurprising Jacksonian embellishments of the good professor’s original book: a lethal lady Elf, Legolas, a quarrel between Bard the Bowman and Thorin Oakenshield, and a lot of Bond-ish action scenes with fire and explosions. I do look forward to watching the movie together with the kids, but I expect no masterpiece, merely Mr Jackson’s regular craftsmanship.
But if this movie deals with Smaug and the Battle of Five Armies, what tales will the third (and hopefully final) movie tell?
