By now you may have already seen it, but I always like to transcribe and close caption the videos and promos in which Richard Armitage appears. Tonight I’m joining thousands of like-minded people who have snaffled the trailer for The Hobbit, well in advance of the movie release in about a year from now. 🙂 Richard Armitage looks stunning as Thorin Oakenshield!!!
Here is a screencap:
And another screencap:
And another because it can’t be helped!
And now the YouTube video:
The transcription is below and closed captioning has now been added.
See you all very soon. 🙂 Was it worth the wait?

Here is the transcript. Corrections are always welcome.
Older Bilbo: My dear Frodo. You asked me once if I had told you everything there was to know about my adventures. While I can honestly say I have told you the truth, I may not have told you all of it.
Gandalf: Bilbo Baggins. I’m looking for someone to share in an adventure.
Bilbo: I can’t just go running off into the blue. I am a Baggins of Bag End.
Gandalf: Bilbo, allow me to introduce Fili, Kili, Oin, Gloin, Dwalin, Balin, Bifur, Bofur, Bombur, Dori, Nori, Ori, and the leader of our company, Thorin Oakenshield.
Thorin Oakenshield (singing):
Far over the misty mountains cold.
To dungeons deep and caverns old,
The pines were roaring on the heights,
The winds were moaning in the night,
The fire was red, it flaming spread,
The trees like torches blazed with light.
Thorin Oakenshield: I cannot guarantee his safety.
Thorin Oakenshield: Nor will I be responsible for his fate.
Gandalf: You’ll have a tale or two to tell when you come back.
Bilbo: Do you promise that I will come back?
Gandalf: No. And if you do you’ll not be the same.
Bilbo: My name is Bilbo Baggins.
Gollum: Bagginses. What is a Bagginses? Precious.
Late edit: For those of you interested in the highest quality video, I have uploaded the 1080p version of the trailer in MOV format to mediafire here: http://www.mediafire.com/?54i3g6jmgx2y4vc This file weighs in at 172 MB. You can make some really nice screencaps with this file! 😀
