Step inside the pitch meeting that led to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug!
Subscribe for more Pitch Meetings:
After the massive success of the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Hollywood understandably wanted to find another way to cash in on the works of JRR Tolkien. That came in the form of The Hobbit trilogy, starring Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins. The only problem? While The Lord of the Rings trilogy was based on a trilogy of books, The Hobbit trilogy was based off a single one. So yeah-- there’s a lot of filler.
The Desolation of Smaug definitely raises some questions. Like why do these dwarves keep getting captured every few minutes? Is Bilbo really going to have to use the ring every time to help them escape? Why does he keep removing it in key action scenes? Why is Legolas here? How did they think they’d be able to take down a dragon using heat? Why does this movie just kind of end?
To answer all these questions and more, step inside the Pitch Meeting that led to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug! It’ll be super easy, barely an inconvenience.

I would love to see a pitch meeting for Footloose. It would be funny to see how a year ago kids today wouldn't understand but with all the Covid restrictions they pretty much had more freedom in Footloose.

“I mean don’t get me wrong I love the lord if the rings movies but the whole time I was sitting there like why is this little sword named sting? What’s the backstory there? “Well a dying spider in a lot of pain” “It’s a good this we’re making these movies” Possibly my favourite part of any pitch meeting😂😂

LOVE, ACTUALLY! Cmon, it’s Christmas time (soon) and super easy to write. Lemme getcha started: “wow, two people learning a brand new language in under a week for each other, that will be incredibly difficult!” (Super easy!) “So the prime minister has to go door to door, because he couldn’t find the actual address of his employee?” Free of charge.

I know is kinda mandatory to have a love story subplot, but the inability to connect Thauriel and Killi is ankward terrible. Still a better love story than Twilight I reckon.

This movie is what happens when you take a children's fairy tale story for children and make it an action film for adults and add a bunch of gratuitous crap to pad the run time and connect it to the adult fairy tale story sequels.
lugialover09 Před měsícem
To be fair, the naming of Sting actually does take place in the book, so it's totally sensible to include it in the movies.

He has one weak spot. A human from the settlement he attacks is the one who kills him. Not a main character or anything. Smaug isn't really a conflict for the parter to overcome the way you might expect. Honestly I don't know who among the people who wanted to make this into a movie read the book. The hiding in barrels scene is another good example. You really get a feel for who these individual dwarves are, but good luck translating that to a screen.
