According to Gollum…er, I mean Andy Serkis, we will most likely see the first trailer to The Hobbit: A Unexpected Journey this December! When he was asked in a interview when we would see a trailer for The Hobbit he said,
There will be a trailer fairly soon, actually. Around Christmas time, I believe. It’s just around the corner.
I’m inclined to think this this will attached to either Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (12/16), which is a Warner Bros. film, or The Adventures of Tintin (12/21) which is a Peter Jackson produced production.
Of course, the trailer will probably be released online well ahead of these releases. Gawd, I miss the day when I use to pay for a movie just to see the trailer. The internet has ruined me.
In the interview the actor also discusses his work as a Second Unit Director, shooting on the Red One Epic camera at 5K resolution 48 frames a second, and of course in 3D.
It’s unlike anything I have ever seen before. The brain has become so attuned to watching films at 24 frames a second. This is something completely different. It’s incredible. You feel inside it and surrounded by it. It’s really great. People will not be disappointed.
My anticipation is buiding. I haven’t been this excited for a film since Star Wars.
