Yesterday saw the release of the brilliant new trailer for the first part of Peter Jackson’s The Hobbit trilogy, The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey. The trailer was truly magical, with plenty of adventure, excitement and a good amount of light hearted comedy. The final moment in the trailer was a hilarious scene involving a large creature landing on some Dwarves. Well, if you did not like that particular ending, then there are now five different endings to the trailer to choose from.
Today the official website released a “Create Your Moment” programme allowing fans to choose from a selection of five endings for the trailer. Those endings include Gollum, Gandalf, Bilbo, Sting and the original ending with the Dwarves. Some helpful chap has kindly put all the five endings together in one handy to view video, check it out at the bottom of this post.

“The Hobbit” follows the journey of title character Bilbo Baggins, who is swept into an epic quest to reclaim the lost Dwarf Kingdom of Erebor, which was long ago conquered by the dragon Smaug. Approached out of the blue by the wizard Gandalf the Grey, Bilbo finds himself joining a company of thirteen dwarves led by the legendary warrior, Thorin Oakensheild. Their journey will take them into the Wild; through treacherous lands swarming with Goblins and Orcs, deadly Wargs and Giant Spiders, Shapeshifters and Sorcerers. Although their goal lies to the East and the wastelands of the Lonely Mountain first they must escape the goblin tunnels, where Bilbo meets the creature that will change his life forever … Gollum. Here, alone with Gollum, on the shores of an underground lake, the unassuming Bilbo Baggins not only discovers depths of guile and courage that surprise even him, he also gains possession of Gollum’s “precious” ring that holds unexpected and useful qualities … A simple, gold ring that is tied to the fate of all Middle-earth in ways Bilbo cannot begin to know.
