Never been a huge LOTR fan but I did get the Blu-Ray set before Father's Day when it was like $40 at Best Buy. Gonna have to rewatch the movies before this one hits!

Looks like it's going to be a great movie!  And I'm very glad that Peter Jackson stepped back in as director.  I really like Guillermo del Toro's work, but this IS Peter Jackson's world, just as much as Tolkkien's.

I know we've seen all of them before, but it looks like they're using Kili and Fili to get the chicks in the seats (similar to Legolas and to a lesser extent Aragorn in LOTR).  They really stand out compared to all the other hairy short dudes. 

Chicks are going to be pissed by the end of the series...

I really like that poster.  First shot of Bolg the Goblin leader.  Fili and Kili are the second most prominent Dwarves which is consitent with what Nicklab suggested.

If you search the internet you can find images of a lot of the toys that are being released in conjunction with the Hobbit.  These include the Great Goblin and Tauriel (Evageline Lilly) and many of the Unexpected Party.

Wait a minute, Kate from Lost is in this movie?!?! How did I miss that?

I wonder if her erstwhile fiance Dominic Monaghan put in a good word for her with Peter Jackson. Or maybe he was too busy flaming Matthew Fox over Twitter...

Yep, she plays a Peter Jackson made up Elf, Tauriel.  Although given the way the movies may break up into 3 parts, I suspect there is a chance that she might not show up until Part 2 and Part 3.  Of course, PJ managed to work Arwen into the Two Towers movie even though she never appeared in that book so I don't presume to be correct that Tauriel would be limited to only the later chapters.

I watched LOTR again about a month ago, and found it more difficult to enjoy this time around, as I had read the books not long before. Glorfindel getting bumped at the river for more Arwen time  cheeses me off.
