A new trailer dropped for The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey today. This film will hit theaters on December 14th of this year and that date is getting closer quickly. Peter Jackson did wonders with The Lord of the Rings and it is looking like the magic of those films may be re-created with this new Hobbit trilogy. I don’t want to spoil anything for you but I think Gandalf lives.
You can head to the official site for the movie and decide on 1 of 5 different endings for this new trailer and then send it to friends or enemies too if you’re feeling particularly malicious. Head to the following link and determine this trailers final fate.
Lego started in 1932 as wooden toys built by carpenter, Ole Kirk Christiansen in Denmark. The name lego comes from the Danish phrase leg godt and means “play well”. In 1947 the toys began being made out of plastic and in 1949 Lego started producing the interlocking bricks we are most familiar with. If all the Lego bricks ever produced were to be divided equally among a world population of six billion, each person would have 62 Lego bricks. According to an article in BusinessWeek in 2006, Lego could be considered the world’s No. 1 tire manufacturer; the factory produces about 306 million tiny rubber tires a year.
Subtitles are primarily used for translating foreign films and to help the hearing impaired. When translating a movie from english to another language or vice versa it can sometimes end up taking a turn for the silly if not hilarious. Other times it could be the overexplanation of sound effects. It happens a lot with anime being translated for english and foreign bootlegs in which subtitlers of another country create the subs for abroad. It also happens when a movie is translated into another language and then that translation is given subtitles. Recently a version of the final Harry Potter movie was released with an entire english subtitle set of ebonics slang for the humor of it so there is that happening as well. Below are a few picture and video examples of anime and film works that were interpreted a little bit funny. Sometimes things get lost in the translation you know.
