footage

We’ve seen teasers. We’ve seen trailers. We’ve even seen a few clips, but now thanks to YouTuber you can watch all available footage from The Hobbit in one neat, wonderfully edited, super trailer. Clocking in at seven minutes, 37 seconds the trailer includes footage from: Announcement trailer, Announcement trailer (G), Trailer 1, TV Spot 1 – 7, UK 1 minute TV spot,  and Japanese 1 minute TV Spot.

It’s also noted,

Shots and sequences have been re-ordered into the possible running order of the final film. The audio can be choppy in places as original trailer background music overlaps much of the dialogue.

Still, it’s an achievement. A work only a true fan could muster. Give it a watch and let us know what you think!

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey opens December 14th. Have you tickets? Are you seeing it in 3-D? High frame rate? IMAX?

And what is this first glimpse of footage?! It’s a nice, quality video of Joseph Gordon-Levitt walking across the street a couple times! Awesome, I mean, wha-!?

So…uh, this is really two minutes of him walking, back and forth, across some dinky road in Pittsburgh? Lame. Regardless, give it a watch below.

We know Levitt is playing cop, John Blake, assigned to a special mission by Commissioner Gordon, but is that all he is? In the video you’ll notice he’s carrying a gasoline tank as the new, fancy, completely un-fuckin-necessarry, desert camo Batmobile cruises ahead. What could this mean? Is he just providing a fill-up or is there something more sinister going on here?

Now, recently,  I was listening to the newest Hollywood Babble-On podcast with Kevin Smith and Ralph Garman (It’s really effin’ funny, you should listen, too) and they brought up an interesting point. Smith mentioned how surprised he was by the amount of spoilery footage we’ve been able to see online from The Dark Knight Rises set, and it’s true, there seems to have been more leaked about this film than any Christopher Nolan film before. So why are we seeing so much shit leaked out of what is a famously, very closed set?

Smith’s theory is it’s the ole’ bait and switch. If Bane is really the “big bad” of Rises, why are we already seeing him fight Batman? That’s showing your cards waaaay too soon. Which is where Smith draws his conclusion, Bane’s not orchestrating any of this, he’s working for someone else, who? SLIGHT SPOILER, Ra’s al Ghul.

I think it’s a solid theory, what do you guys think, and what are your thoughts on Levitt’s involvement?

Adapted from Dreamwork‘s successful, and totally freakin’ awesome, How To Train You Dragon comes a stage show in the scheme of Walking with Dinosaurs, but instead with dragons. Dudes, seriously, dragons! As of now the show is be readied for stage in Melbourne, Australia but I’m hoping it’ll appear state-side very, very soon.

Who doesn’t want experience these incredible animatronics up close. They even breathe fire! Pyrotechnic effect fire, but still, it’s the closest you’ll ever be to a fire-breathing dragon.

Watch the footage below and let us know what you think.

Just because Thor won’t be out in theaters until this Friday, May 6, 2011, it does not mean that we have to pass up the chance to check out some new behind-the-scenes footage. Now, don’t ask me why Paramount has decided to release this footage, which does include some spoilers, so don’t watch it if you want to be surprised! And yes, most of the footage does appear in the trailers but there are a few surprises thrown in. So sit back, relax, enjoy some more Thor footage and let us know how you think this film will hold up come Friday.

Check out both videos below….

Now about those Doctor Strange and Hank Pym references.
