The Unbelievably Cool New Hobbit Trailer

Here’s the newest trailer for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey.  It releases December 14, 2012.  I don’t know about you, but I could just about camp out in the wintry cold for this one.  It looks flat-out amazing (and there are going to be three, not two, Hobbit films!).

How strange that Bible-influenced stories continue to captivate a world losing its connection with the Christic narrative.  It’s not that other stories don’t fascinate us; it’s that the ones that mirror the biblical story, however directly or more abstractedly, blow the others out of the water.

We don’t need sex in our films.  We don’t need filth.  We don’t need bad language.  We don’t need amoral, amorphous characters.  We need beautiful stories that flame to light.  I know I sound like a broken record.  But when The Hobbit banks a billion, that will become clear once more–and then many studios will go back to the latest bad story filled with bad content that has a bad effect on moviegoers.  How does this happen?

The first Hobbit trailer is also pretty amazing, by the way.  The song those dwarves sing makes my bones grow cold.

    So if this will be three films, then shouldn’t the original LOTR films have constituted 9 films then?
