Crazed Lawrencian"Fair enough." Yep, they chose wisely.
Proud member of the IAA What's the point of being grown up if you can't act childish?
Post Tenebras LuxAs if there was any doubt at all. Martin Freeman is amazing, I hope this role makes him even more famous.
Darling.That was a fun trailer. The "At your service" bit feels just right. Alternate endings for the trailer:

Darling.Stephen Colbert will make a cameo
Trained by Flim and FlamWell at least someone's finally pronounced Smaug's name properly...
BUY A CAR FROM ME!
Eye'm the cutest!Is it pronounced "Smog" like the pestilence that plagues Los Angeles or "Smowg" as in ow?
Endless Conflict: Every war ends in time, even supposedly this one.
わからないSmog, and that's because he's essentially belching that in the Lonely Mountain...
I'm reading this because it's interesting. I think.
Whiskey, Tango, Foxtrot, over.
If we follow Tolkien's rules for pronunciation, I would say that Sm-ow-g seems more likely given the other -au- words like Sauron.

Pray tell, what school of trangression is this?
I'm intangible,can we move on now?It's definitely Sm-ow-g, if it really was Smaug, there'd also be Gimili's cousin Bay-lin, Arumon and a creepy guy named Grime-a Wormtongue What's that? Those characters don't exist? Hmm that must mean there is no dragon named Smog.

Post Tenebras LuxBut his name is Smaug. I think you meant to say "Smog" there.
Three-Puppet SaluterThe Hobbit wasn't originally a part of Tolkien's linguistic universe. Could have gone either way, but now it's Smowg for sure. Bonfire Note Iiwahh titump: the protest of a writer whose hand has been forced.

War ALWAYS changes. Man does not.That Air New Zealand flight safety briefing was brilliant.
I can think of few things that would do a better job at tearing me out of the story than seeing Stephen Colbert pop up for a cameo...
Post Tenebras LuxI'm sorry, I can't begrudge the guy. He's a total Tolkien fanboy and given the chance, anyone who's that big a fan would do it, television personality or not. I know I sure as heck would jump for joy at the opportunity. Plus, haven't you heard of the Colbert Bump? If anything the movie'll do even better because of it...

For anyone interested in seeing the 48fps version, here's a list of every theater in the US and Canada showing it: http://www.bleedingcool.com/2012/11/08/every-cinema-in-the-usa-or-canada-where-you-can-see-the-hobbit-at-48fps-hfr/
Pirate AND writer!My local Cinemark will have it! YES!
Trained by Flim and FlamNope, it's smowg. In one of the appendices, there's a pronunciation guide. 'Au' is pronouced 'ow'.
BUY A CAR FROM ME!
Eccentric DreamerThe closest one is an hour away from us. But we're Canadian. That's nothing.
Everyone is a little bit insane. It makes the world so much more interesting!
Is sick of your shit.What was the deal with the 48fps again?
I have a blog. (That updates sometimes.)
