To cleanse the palate. The first trailer, released nine months ago, was a quick look at Hobbitville or whatever it’s called, presumably because that’s most of what Peter Jackson had shot to that point. Nine months later, you’re finally getting a look at the full sweep of the trilogy. LOTR isn’t my cup of tea, but I may go see it purely for the photography and F/X. If there’s a better-looking series of films ever made, I don’t know what it is.
