The Hobbit Trailer, 20 December 2011

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:

Richard Armitage as Thorin

And another screencap:

Richard Armitage rocks this role!

And another because it can’t be helped!

The incredible Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield

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 link to mediafire if you want to download it in MP4 format:

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.

Gandalf: Understood.

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: This file weighs in at 172 MB. You can make some really nice screencaps with this file! 😀

    Thank you BCCMEE! It is like you got it to us in real time. Amazing.

    • Oh Bccmee,
      Richard Armitage as Thorin Oakenshield is magnificent! Mr. Armitage’s voice, his physicality, his demeanor, etc., reflect a gravitas for Thorin that is stunning! I say again, stunning! And then, he sings in his timberous velvety Shakespearean trained baritone and I am a completely awe at his wonderful character portrayal.
      Thanks for sharing the video, caps, and transcript. You’re the best!
      Holiday Cheers! Grati ;->

I still can’t breathe properly and I have a huge pain in my chest!!! Absolutely love everything about the trailer but, especially Richard, of course. Now I’m off to email the link to Matthew as he’s expecting it!

  50. CDoart says:

    Thank you, bccmee!!! You are great !!!
    A singing Thorin … (I had strange feelings, hearing him sing like that. Perhaps I will work it into a post, if I can come to terms with my feelings ;o)

  51. jules says:

    I love the song…it’s so moving!! ❤ ❤

  55. sapphire says:

    I’m so pleased i’m here alone because everyone’s comments have made me cry. the trailer is great, you can see so much of Richard’s lovely face, always a good thing, and his voice is lovely but then we knew it was after Clarissa. How will we all survive the next 12 months lol

  56. Jacqui says:

    Have been watching / reading news on the trailer at several places RA looks beautiful the song is awesome it will be a long wait..! Made some caps aswell

  57. Lady Rose says:

    I’m so excited I almost can’t breathe. And then when I heard him sing, I did stop breathing. AHHH!

  58. Luciana says:

    How do we control our anxiety until December 2012??? Any suggestion???

    • Elaine says:

      Hi Luciana! I’m hoping Bccmee’s wonderful graphics and flash games will help us pass the time. Other than that, I think the only other solution is to hibernate until December 14, 2012 – then we can dream the time away…..

  59. kathryngaul says:

    Yep, the reaction’s exactly the same today as it was yesterday! It’s 7.23amThursday 22 Dec 2011 here in eastern Australia and I never get up this early!!!! Must have something to do with a certain Sexy Dwarf!

  60. kathryngaul says:

    I’m still having trouble breathing properly….thankfully, Matthew and Melanie can’t see me!! They’re both really excited about the trailer (he’s 40, she’s 37) – haven’t I brung ’em up well!!!!

  61. bccmee says:

    @Everyone: Thanks so much for your lovely comments. I’m still in the Thorin Recovery Unit. Not sure when I’ll snap out of it but it’s very crowded, LOL!

    • Elaine says:

      I think that, when we finally see Thorin in his fully glory, he may become my favorite RA character ever. I find listening to “Over the Misty Mountains” is almost hypnotic. Isn’t Richard’s voice lovely? And the harmonies are beautiful. I have loved The Hobbit from the first time I read it over 30 years ago so , to see it finally coming to life in such a wonderful form (and with such a wonderful “form” in it), is a dream come true.

    • Teuchter says:

      “Thorin Recovery Unit”!! LOL!!!!! You’re too funny but so right!! I’ve been here for most of the day and find I’m not up to leaving!! It may take some time as I still have a certain voice still singing in my ears!! 😉

      BTW – I do love how beautifully he enunciates his words!! You can hear every syllable even when spoken softly to Gandalf. Sent shivers down my spine or was that tingles??

  62. THANK YOU made my day Now I know from what surprise you had spoken .Indeed it is the most marvellous thing that I have already seen this year. Thorin will be the most beautiful dwarf we ever seen.And That voice ! OMG !!! * Swoon *
    I Love you BCC. You are a genius!Thank s a million!

  63. OMFG.
    late to the party as crimbo has been keeping me busy but

  68. DarkJackal says:

    This week has been too full of goodness. So much so I haven’t had time to track down and view the Ultimate edition of the Hobbit trailer, which you have so considerately provided for us! Holy crap, they weren’t kidding about feeling like you’re standing around on set while they’re filming.

  70. Thank you so much for posting this! I have long wondered what his singing voice would sound like, and it is no surprise that it gives me chills just as his velvety speaking voice does. Cannot wait until December 2012!!! This movie is going to shatter all other records, including LOTR.
