This weekend, Hall of Fire will resume with a lighthearted chat where we all get to play the role of director on the Hobbit.

Because this Saturday June 30 (at 6pm New York time) we’ll be asking the question: “What would you put in the next Hobbit trailer?”. Or if you prefer, what’s your ideal Hobbit trailer?

Come join us then and play director yourself!

What do you things do think are important? More Bilbo? More Gollum? More White Council? More story? What would you leave out? And what do you think must be left until the second film?

With the trailer attached to Brave being little more than a re-cut of trailer #1 (some call it trailer 1.1), we think it’s only fair that fans get to indulge in a little rampant speculation.

So join us this Saturday, June 30 at 6.00pm EDT (New York time), when we’ll discuss all this and much more as we look at what to expect from the next Hobbit movie trailer!
