Why, why, why must they always use quicktime? I don't have the damn thing, and everytime I try to download it on the site all this ipod junk comes up and wrecks up my download.

Anyway, great trailer. Looks like Jackson can do it again.

No amount of money would ever make a giant gorilla and dinosaurs together look realistic. It just makes the dinosaurs look tiny.

You live in a cool place, Jackson likes to film in NZ.

yeah, well seeing as he is a new zealander, and lives not far from here.
Expect to see more movies coming from the shores of NZ. Such as the Chronicles of Narnia

I didn't realize he was from NZ. The Chronicles of Narina looks really cool. I saw previews of it when I saw Star Wars. NZ is on my list of places to visit. Lucky you get to live there and they film movies over your hill ;)

Well we are gonna have to judge what it really looks like on the big screen.
"Listen, I mean that from my knowledge of the world that I see around me, I think that it is much more likely that the reports of flying saucers are the results of the known irrational characteristics of terrestrial intelligence than of the unknown rational efforts of extra-terrestrial intelligence."

Keep in mind that all the special effects in the trailers are very rarely the "final" graphics. Usually what they do (if you listen to the LOTR commentaries, which I just finished, all of them for all the movies) is keep refining the rendering process and the models until the very last minute (for Return of the King they were still doing the special effects until one WEEK before the movie was released), rerender the scenes and then use those in the final movie. So the final scenes will most likely look even better.

This is actually true of most movies, but Peter Jackson really pushes his stuff to the limit (like doing the graphics with just 1 week left).

At this point if Peter Jackson were doing Teen Movie 587 I would go see it.

New Zeeland is a great place, are really neat to visit.  If you ever get a chance go swiming with the Dolphins, thats beyon amazing.  Flying in the mountins is really fun too.  I remember when I was there the front page of the local newspaper had an article on how LOTR had just started filming.  Really exciting.  I got to see a lot of the areas where they filmed.  Need to go back there someday.  Looks like I will be hittin Australia next summer, maybe I will stop by.
