I squeed so loud I forgot my windows were open O_O.
Downloaded the hi-res trailer and am now going frame-by-frame! Official site as well with wallpaper: THE HOBBIT: AN UNEXPECTED JOURNEY
Ranger: What he was, a Ranger of Gondor.
Strider: His nickname. You've heard of nicknames, right?
Aragorn (Son of Arathorn): His given name.
Isildur's heir: He was a decendent of the line of Isilidur. This isn't a name, just a statement of fact.
King of Gondor: What he was... the King of Gondor. Duh.
Dunedin: His race.
So only 1 name, 1 nickname, and a few DIFFERENT descriptors.

No minis, no thanks...
Welp, already got my prop from this movie -
Can't wait, looks brilliant!, i've been rereading the hobbit, its a great tale, wonder how they'll split the movies?
This trailer was all kinds of cool. I've read the book and am still anxious to see this. Not so keen on it being split in two, but I can understand it.
I suppose I'm a also failure of a man because I don't follow sports like football, basketball and baseball.
Weeeeell, the split is going to be interesting. It's a small book. Wasn't the buzz a couple of years back that they were going to film a bunch of side-story stuff? Early parts of the Tale of Aragorn and Arwen, the attack on Dol Guldur, Aragorn and Gandalf's pursuit of Gollum, etc?
I believe at one point one film would be just 'The Hobbit' and one would be all side-story stuff to bridge it to LotR. When Del Toro was still attached they realized that Hobbit was enough to fill two movies on its own. Any side-story stuff has to be taken from Hobbit and LotR since they don't have the movie rights to any of Tolkien's other work.
Saruman won't show until the second movie, as a connection between both stories. At this point in the timeline, Saruman was starting to think of the One Ring and it's whereabouts, due to the fact he had come in possession of a Palantir. Sauron, through Saruman's Palantir, started to intercept his thoughts and feelings, changing Saruman's side slowly but surely. Right before the LotR's timeline begins, Saruman's holds a gathering with the Istari to bring the Ring's whereabouts back up. He tells the council he believes the Ring has traveled out to sea and will never be returned. He secretly starts a search party and starts banding together orcs, to make Isengard a stronghold. His allegiances in the Hobbit timeline are beginning to slightly sway, though he is still a council member and advicer-giver to Gandalf and the rest of the Istari.
Now, Radagast lives out in the wild and frequently visits with Gandalf, as he is one wizard lower. He gives Gandalf valuable information about the goings-on in wild and conversations he has over heard whilst out and about. He may or may not show his head in the first movie, as they travel over the Misty Mountains, before they meet with Beorn.
Trolls are cool...
I'm feeling excited all over again. Soon... going back... to Middle Earth... for more... adventures.
ill be in my bunk.
I'm not sure if I'm excited or not...I got some pretty serious warm fuzzies seeing the trailer, but I've just never held the Hobbit in nearly the same regard as LOTR.
Ah hell, who cares. More Middle Earth!
I actually find Dostoevsky to be easier to read (in translation of course!) JRRT is pretty dry stuff in places
Far over the Misty Mountains cold ... That song gave me shivers.
Oh wow, the trailer looks great! Can't wait to see it, sure wish it wasn't a year away.
That's a long, long time
