I haven’t got much to say today. I’m still busy getting ready to head out of town and my brain is still in happy Hobbit land. I’ve watched the trailer more times than I care to admit and have had a look at the frame-by-fame and accompanying comments on Facebook by theonering.net.The singing does me in just about every time!
The Hobbit teaser trailer is up!!! It is sooo good! Definitely makes me excited for the movie, too bad it is a year away. And if it wasn’t enough goodness for me (yes, I know that is atrocious grammer)…Thorin sings and speaks in the trailer! Tolkien, Peter Jackson and of course Richard Armitage, what an irresistible combination! It is supposed to be available here. Or I was able to actually see it at Bccmee’s blog, she has posted it here.
Update: I’m not the only one, and I am certainly not the first to make some screencaps from the trailer…but I couldn’t help myself. 😉

Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield (And the back of Sir Ian McKellan's head as Gandalf)
More Thorin...because I can't help myself.
And since I loved Tolkien way before I’d ever heard of Richard Armitage, I’m pretty excited to see some of these returning faces from The Lord of the Rings!
Sir Ian McKellan returning as Gandalf
Cate Blanchett as Galadriel
Elijah Wood as Frodo and Ian Holm as the older Biblo
Although, I’m greatly looking forward to seeing how Martin Freeman plays Bilbo!
