The Hobbit and The Dark Knights Rises trailers are going to be shown with Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows

This has to be the best news I have seen in a long time. I am a huge Sherlock Holmes fan, and have been looking forward to the Hobbit since it was announced.

"It's a dangerous business, Frodo, going out your door. You step onto the road, and if you don't keep your feet, there's no knowing where you might be swept off to."



I am looking forward to The Hobbit, and TDKR, but Sherlock I am on the fence still. I loved the first one with Downey Jr., but this one just seems to not be made as well. It does not seem to have the it that the first one had. Does anyone else think this?

Why the heck would he be in it?

Aragorn wasn't in the Hobbit.

If they wait some more years, Viggo will be old enough to play a younger Gandalf!   

 

Edit: since they're at it, couldn't they ditch Elijah Wood? His eyes are just uncanny and disturbing!  :-S   

 

...the eeeeyes...

The White Council's attack on Dol Guldur will be included in the movie, which explains Galadriel and the decision to make two films.

The whole thing was always left vague in the books, so I'm actually psyched as hell to see that.

Legolas, however, is just gratuitous fan service.



@ Pezus: They're not creating a new plot for the second movie, they are sticking to the book as much the same way as they did with The Lord Of The Rings.
Dividing it into 2 movies has one reason and one reason alone:
2 big piles of money > 1 big pile of money.
Just like they did with Harry Potter's last book.
I only hope that they don't make the first movie as sh!tty as the first episode of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.
But at least there's a big fight in the second movie.

Not really, it looks about like what I would expect a sequel to the first to look like. Gimme another good performance by Downey Jr., an interesting plot, and another great Hans Zimmer soundtrack, and I'll forgive the "like that would ever happen in a Sherlock Holmes story" moments from the first one that I expect will be in this one too.

From what you said it makes sense that she will be there again, but does anyone really care to see her again?

The guy who plays legolas is just stuck in the same roles. Musketeers, Legolas, Pirates. Anything else he does just does not cut it. Although I enjoyed him in Rings, so this is not too big of deal for me.

 

Anyone watch the recent special edition Rings in the theaters? I was dying to see it, I hope they play it again!

I have only seen a couple of trailers for the new Sherlock movie, but as the first was well done and the Downey has consistently given good performances in the movies I have seen him in I have faith he won't let me down.

If you like Sherlock Holmes though, I would recommend finding a copy of the BBC series Sherlock, it is a surprisingly good modern day adaption.

Oh, if that's what that's for, then that should kick all the ass on the planet. I've always wanted to know how that worked (or just more about "The Necromancer" in general)



Monster Hunter: pissing me off since 2010.

While I don't think it is appropriate to add these characters, addin Aragorn would be particularly bad ...

Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the one ring make Bilbo have a remarkably long life?

While you can have elves and wizards that were alive and (roughly) the same age in the Hobbit as they were in Lord of the Rings, how can you justify having Aragorn in the Hobbit?

Exactly. And even if Aragorn was squeezed into the film somehow, I doubt he would be portrayed by Mortensen.

I just don't think he would be able to pull off a very convincing ten year old.
