When a trailer as hyped as the first one for "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey" finally drops, its reception can live or die on the impressions of entertainment writers and bloggers. Last night's trailer met its fair share of criticism, but the general response was overwhelmingly positive from fans and writers alike.
Reactions to the "Hobbit" trailer!
Even though some lucky writers first saw the trailer two weeks ago at Butt-Numb-a-Thon, some prominent bloggers took to Twitter to voice their opinions for the trailer's wide release.
We've collected a few below.
Devin Faraci (@devincf), Badass Digest: You Can Go Straight To Mordor If You Don’t Like This THE HOBBIT Trailer
Kristopher Tapley (@kristapley), InContention: Truly, what I'm most looking forward to? Howard Shore's contribution.
Daniel Fienberg (@HitFixDaniel), HitFix: I still think Hines Ward is gonna be more of a distraction than an asset in "The Hobbit."
Matt Patches (@misterpatches), Hollywood.com: Look, I'm just scared to revisit something I love. Blame Star Wars. Blame Crystal Skull. Blame Tron. #TheHobbit #ButImSoIn
Matt Signer (@mattsinger), IFC.com: Already tired of HOBBIT tweets. Go back to making fun of Bane. That's something I can relate to.
Germain Lussier (@GermainLussier), /Film: Though I first saw The Hobbit trailer almost two weeks ago, the best part of watching it again is that new Shore score. Wowzers.
