A friend and I talked yesterday about how we thought The Hobbit would start. You know, after the curtain opens and you sit through the 10-15 minutes of coming soon trailers - what will we see?
Personally, I think the first several minutes of FELLOWSHIP OF THE RING might be the best movie opening of all time. At the very least Top 5.
Do you think that THE HOBBIT might open in a similar manner - perhaps a combination of flashback (history of Middle Earth before the Ring) and maybe even a flash forward (the destruction of the Ring)?
Personally, I would love to see this - it would set the epic scale of the film perfectly.
