YouTube over iTunes

I tried to watch The Hobbit trailer on the 'official' site - iTunes/Apple, but it kept giving me page not found. After ten minutes of reloading, I gave up and went to YouTube, voila!

The trailer definitely is more 'grownup' in tone than the book. It's more like they're giving us a sequel - of sorts - to the prior movies, than a prequel to the novels. Though how that will play out in the actual movie, I don't know. Trailers can be very different from what we end up seeing on screen. Overall, it looks awesome, and I'm very pleased at seeing some of the things that were going on outside of the actual Hobbit, all those wonderful bits from the appendices and such. The one thing I'm still ambivalent about is the actor playing Bilbo - he just doesn't do it for me. I still see his character in Love Actually, the adult movie lighting double. It's very disconcerting. But I'm in it for the Elves, so I think there will be much to make me happy!
