The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug Extended Edition trailer, YahooMovies giveaway

So YahooMovies has a trailer for the extended edition of Desolation of Smaug here. You don't see a ton of new stuff, but you do get a glimpse of Thrain. And there's more of Sonic the Hedgehog Beorn. This one adds an additional 25 minutes to the theatrical version, for better or worse. In case you couldn't tell, I have mixed feelings about it, largely because the film itself was so meh (imho). Will anything Jackson's going to add significantly improve it? Probably not. On the other hand, his version of Beorn is painfully bad (again, imho), so more screen time is nothing to look forward to; and his version of Radagast is appalling, and as more time at Dol Guldor probably means more Radagast screentime...Ugh. But, well, it is still The, yeah, I'm going to watch it at least once. (Yes, I know how pathetic that sounds :P ).

Also, if you're interested in winning this "Hero Set"....

as well as a One Ring replica and the movie, the site has details on how to enter. First, you must make your way through Mirkwood, and then...

Sorry, nothing that exciting; and, congrats, a lot easier than that would be. Just follow YahooMovies on Twitter, and tweet the line they ask you to. All details/disclaimers at the link. Contest ends September 25th.

(And, in case it needs stating, this is a YahooMovies contest & has nothing to do with my blog. I'm just sharing for interested Tolkien fans).
