Five geeky things we spotted in ‘Battle of the Five Armies’ trailer

THE HOBBIT: THE BATTLE OF FIVE ARMIES I know the trailer has been and gone a couple of weeks now, but here are a few geeky items of trivia that we noted at the time that have been rattling round inside our heads ever since that we wanted to share.

Maybe you’ve noted these things too; maybe not! Were there other geeky oddities that you noted at the time? (more…)

When exactly did Saruman fall?

Christopher Lee has precisely one line in the recent trailer for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies, but his little cameo was an unsurprising winner with fans. And, apart from reinforcing that stuff is always better with Chris Lee (maybe Chris can do all the voices for BOTFA — that would be ace!), it also sparked a surprising amount of speculation about Saruman’s intentions in desiring to confront Sauron alone.

Now, we can’t say how the confrontation occurred in canon: we know little more than that the White Council put forth its strength, that Saruman played an important role, and that Sauron deliberately withdrew as he had anticipated and planned for the actions of the Wise. Had Sauron, in fact, already fled? It’s a legitimate interpretation of the texts. However, Tolkien’s writings are a lot more informative about when Saruman “left the path of wisdom”. In this feature, Tedoras examines what The Lord of the Rings, Unfinished Tales, and The Silmarillion have to tell us about Saruman’s fall.

TORn’s final frame-by-frame analysis: The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies main trailer

BotFATrailer82 It’s been a long journey since our very first TORn staff frame-by-frame trailer analysis — all the way back in 2001 when The Fellowship of the Ring was about to debut on the silver screen. Now it’s the very last one — the frame-by-frame for The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies.

It’s been a lot of fun for us all, and we hope you’ve enjoyed the reading as much as we’ve enjoyed the analysing and speculating.

So without further ado except for the compulsory movie spoiler warning… (more…)

Hall of Fire chat log: breaking down the Five Armies trailer scene by scene

Barliman's Chat A little earlier today, Hall of Fire took a detour into movie-land to pull apart the brand-new trailer for The Battle of the Five Armies.

If you missed the discussion, or found the messy first hour very frustrating (sorry about that, it was unusually difficult to direct discussion), then here’s the log from the final two once we got a system going and started analysing what Peter Jackson put in front of us scene by scene.

Hope you find it illuminating.

Oh, and usual warning for movie spoilers over the page!

Watch The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies trailer in silky smooth HFR!

vlcsnap-2014-11-07-05h46m53s225 YouTube recently enabled High Frame Rate (HFR) playback supporting 60 frames per second and the new Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies trailer is the first to take advantage of High Frame Rate. Click to watch the video, and when it starts click on the gear in the lower right and choose 1080p60.

Peter Jackson famously filmed the entire Hobbit trilogy in HFR, and every film has been available in theaters in this unique smooth format.

Gamers used to 60fps love it, cinephiles loathe the change from standard film 24 fps. Fans are growing accustomed to the new HFR smooth movie — and for good reason as many other filmmakers including James Cameron plan to utilize this enhanced film format. (more…)
